Something- About tlie Players.
N. M. MacLeod, "winner of the cham
pionship gold button, 19 well entitled to
his victory. This is by no means Mac-
Leod's first chess honor, although^ he Is j
but 32 years of age. As long as efghteen j
years ago, when a school boy of only 14 j
years of. age, he won the championship of j
the city of Quebec, and in the following
year won the championship of Canada.
In 1889, when irujhis 20th year, he repre
sented Canada in the international chess
congress, teld that year in New York,
and played against such masters as
Steinitz, Blackburne, Burn, Lee, Bird.
Mason and Gunsberg. He even won a
gam© and drew a second with Black
burne, the champion of England. Although
young MacLeod did not win a prize in this
tourney, his play excited much interest.
"Wilhelm Steinitz, for twenty-five years
•world champion, said to the young man:
"Look here, my young friend, you have
it in you to become a great player. Why.
these masters here do not beat you; you
beat yourself, Take my advice and devote
fifteen minutes a day for the next year
to the study of openings and the princi
ples of development, and you will hold the
best of them."
MacLeod has not yet followed the ad
vice of the veteran Steinitz in regard to
the study of opening!, and in this regard
his games would be considered by the sci
entific expert as . somewhat crude. But
his end-games compares with that of the
greatest masters, while the brilliant com
binations of his middle game often com
pare with those of Morphy.
E. P. Elliott, Minneapolis, winner of
the second place, is another brilliant ex
ample of the rough-and-ready player.
Although his style is quite different from
that of MacLeod as to method of maneu
vering for a combination, he, like Mac-
Leod, succeeds by the vigor and original
ity of his middle and end-game. He is
bolder and more aggressive than Mac-
Leod, often making daring sacrifices in or
der to break down the opponent's defenses
and establish an attack; while MacLeod
works more of finesse and subtle strategy.
Elliott's is the hammer-and-tongs style,
and the bold vigor of his blows when once
lie has established an attack forces many
a more experienced player to an early
Friedlander, the "Dakota cyclone," who
look third place, is another of the ready,
jff-hand stamp of chesslsts. He has not.
Soft White Hands
MILLIONS USE CUTICURA SOAP,
assisted by Cuticura Ointment, for
beautifying the skin, for cleansing
the scalp and the stopping of fall
ing hair, for softening, whitening,
and soothing red, rough hands, for
Daby rashes, itchings, and chaf
ing*, and for all the purposes of the
toilet, bath, and nursery. Millions
of women use CUTICURA SOAP in
baths for annoying irritations, in
flammations, excoriations, or too
free or offensive perspiration, in
washes for ulceratlve weaknesses,
and for many sanative, antiseptic
purposes which readily suggest
themselves to women and mothers.
Complete Treatment for every Humour.

and scales, and soften the thickened cuticle,
and CtrncemA Ointment, to instantly allay
itching, inflammation, and irritation, and

to cool and cleanse the blood. , y -
perhaps, the subtlety of MacLeod or the
resourceful vigor of Elliott in general
play, although he presses close after both
oi' these players in these points. He is
thoroughly original and has good gen
eralship. It is worthy of note that in last
week's contest, he beat both MacLeod and
Elliott in his respective games with them.
His losses were chiefly due to lack of
knowledge of the openings.
F. N. Stacy, Minneapolis, who won
fourth place is the present Minnesota
state champion. Slower in style of play
than the three preceding and less trained
in the practical art, he has a good founda
tion knowledge of the science of the game.
His losses in the tourney, it appears,
were during the first three days when he
was trying to combine chess play with the
pursuit of his newspaper profession; win
ning the games of the last three days
without a loss, among the defeated in
these rounds being Friedlander, the Dako
ta champion, Spencer and Huxmann, for
mer Minnesota tiate champions, and Judge
Smith, the Michigan veteran.
A Cautious Player.
Judge H. D. Smith, the Michigan repre
sentative who won fifth place, was without
( doubt the most careful player of the tour
| nament, if not the most sound in his play.
j It" he made any error, it was on the side
|of cautiousness in attack. His plan of
campaign, somewhat after that of Ander
sen and Lasker, is to secure a strongly
guarded position and wait for the enemy
to lay himself open. His victories over
such strong players, as Huxniann, Spen
cer, Friodlander, Clark and Jacobs, were
due to this method. ■
C. S. Jacobs, the lowa champion, and W.
G. Hine, the- Missouri. veteran, were two
of the most experienced and powerful
players in the tourney, and their scores
are not at all up to their record and abil
ity as players. Jacobs is a master solver
and also a problemist of international
i note, as well as a brilliant player. Had
he been as careful of his defenses, as he
is brilliant in his attacks, he would have
pushed the victors too close for comfort, j
Hine, next perhaps to MacLeod, was the
most trained artist and subtle strategist
of the sixteen men in the fray, and a
I formidable antagonist for the best players
jin the Mississippi valley. His lack of
J practice during the past year accounts for
his score of 8 to 7. " ■ .
George B. Spencer, St. Paul, who tied
with Hive for seventh place, Is the presi
dent of the association and has been twice
state champion. He is perhaps the great
est student of the game of those, contest
ing and puts up theoretically the cleverest
and cleanest of positions. His disregard
of small advantages and the tricks of play
I was responsible for many of bis losses;
I and the heavy responsibilities attached to
I the management of the . tournament ac
count for the fact, that he missed secur
ing a position to which is skill and reputa
tion entitle him.
J. W. Clark and Guy M. Thompson, of
Minneapolis and Dr. A. T. Bigelow, of St.
Paul, greatly surprised their friends in
the games lost in the last few days. All
three are former state champions Dr.
Bigelow being the present city champion
of St. Paul. Thompson holding the same
position for Minneapolis. The same may
be said of Dr. F. A. Huxmann, the local
chess master, end winner of the 18&9 state
championship. All played strong chess at
times and are thorough students of the
game; but their play was unsteady.
Doubtless the large number of games
which they had to play and the effect of
the length of the tourney upon their phy
sical condition was largely responsible for
their failure to score high.
C. E. Thayer, champion of the Commer
cial Club chess room' of this city, has had
perhaps the least chess practice of the six
teen entered, being a business man of
arduous activities. -His- victories over
Spencer, former state champion, end Ja
cobs, the champion of lowa, show what
Thayer can do when he gets down to busi
ness. • , ..',.'.
Captain Rogers, the Milwaukee veteran,
is sixty-eight years of age, long past the
period when men enter prolonger tourna
ments. He is present champion of Mil
waukee and was champion of Minnesota
in 1898. Lack of physical endurance was \
the cause of most of his losses, although

PLANS OF BOWLERS
The (oniing Season Promises to Be a
The recently organized Minneapolis and
Twin City Bowling leagues are making
plans for the sport for the coming sea
son. The Minneapolis league has six
clubs of twelve members each. This league
will bowl three nights of each week. The
Turner club, whicn gave Spear's club a
hard rub tor first place last year, is prob
ably the strongest aggregation of bowlers
in the league.
The Twin City league is said to embrace
the pick of the bunch in Minneapolis and
St. Paul. This league has six teams, three
from each city. Spear's team, which lost
but three games last season, will be ready
for business the moment the season
The Kopple-Carter alley, on Hennepin
avenue, and the Nicollet alley will also
be represented with teams. Among the
old players who will be found at the fa
miliar haunts are "Doc" Holmes, Hoag,
Morris, Haisley, A. Kopple, Al Carter,
Gus Hansen, Con Sandblom and Oscar
The St. Paul teams will be made up of
the best men in the Pfister league of last
Still water bowlers tried hard to to make
it a tricity league. The fact that Min
neapolis bowlers cannot get home until
morning with present street car accommo
dations between here and the prison city,
put Stillwater out of the-question.
The formal opening of the season will
take place Oct. 1. The Minneapolis bowl
ing league tourney will open the second
Tuesday in October.

THE LONG BAMBOO
Deep Water Bass Fish-ng at Prior
POACHERS WITH GILL NETS
A St. Paul Gang That : the Game
Warden I* Now Looking
Prior Lake, Minn., Aug. 19.—This is the
season of deey water bass fishing when
the expert angler scorns the casting rod
and takes to the long, slender bamboo
—the only pole for this kind of fishing.
Of course, now that the weed-mats have
sunk, bass may be found along the shal
low shores, hunting for the young frogs
that are unusually plentiful this year; but
during the day they live in the deep
water and it is there that the angler must
seek them. Shiners are undoubtedly the
beet bait to use, for the little frogs are

OAK HARBOR YACHT CLUBHOUSE AT CANNON LAKE, FARIBAULT
Special to The Journal. |
Faribault, Minn., Aug . 19.—The Oak
Harbor Yacht club of Faribault owns
about fifteen acres of ground on the 6hores
of Cannon Lake where the club moved its
headquarters about five years ago. The
club numbers about twelve or fifteen
members and their president is W. E.
Blodgett now in Italy; secretary, F. A.
Burnham, and treasurer, George Pease.
so numerous that the bass are growing
tired of them as a steady diet. Tho
water is clearing rapidly of the slime en
gendered by the large weed growth, and
the fall-like atmosphere we are having
at night seems to give the fish a new and
more vigorous life. The other day I
caught a two-pound bass that put up a
better fight than one of five pounds I
killed two weeks ago. This all goes to
prove that during "dog-days" the bass
are not in good fighting trim. It should
be called their pestilence season, for the
unhealthy, slimy water spreads con
tagious sores among them, that are ob
noxious to the eye and cause the angler to
throw back many fine fish taken dur
ing this period.
Some big catches have been made of
late, the biggest by Colonel Rallly of
Harrisonville. Mo., and Messrs. Taylor
and Schwab of St. Paul. Colonel Railly
killed a six-pound bass the other day in
forty feet of water. His wife was row
ing the boat for him when the fish
struck. The wind was blowing at a ter
rific rate down the lake and the boat be
came unmanageable and drifted rapidly
towards Reed's island. Under these cir
cumstances the colonel was unable to gain
any line on his fish and had no recourse
but to feed him as much line as he
wanted. Fortunately, when the length on
the reel was nearly exhausted, the boat
struck a bar and, after five minutes' hard
fighting, the colonel brought his quarry
within reach of his wife's landing net.
Up to date this fish ranks as the biggest
one taken this summer, although many
larger ones were killed during the spring.
A grave danger is menacing the fishing
In this lake and Game Warden Fullerton
is the only man who can save it from
been depopulated. He has been informed
of the fact that a gang of market fishers
from St. Paul are manipulating gill nets
in the upper lake and are shipping the
fish into St. Paul over the Omaha road.
Steps probably will be taken to put an
end to this nuisance. In case the game
warden fails to interfere, the citizens of
this community threaten to take the mat
ter in hand. Rails and tar and feathers
have been suggested.
Last Wednesday night Mrs. Elliot Bakar
of Minneapolis, who has a cottage on
Clark's point, fired nine times at tho
poachers who were setting their nets.
They immediately retreated up the lake
as fast as they could row; but put in
their appearance again three nights
later, when they were interrupted in
their work by J. R. Hull and L. C. Hodg
son, who attempted to overtake them in a
light boat. The chase, however, was
futile, for the poachers had a good start.
One of their nets was found in the
woods and destroyed.
It is presumed that these poachers are
members of the notorious South Seventh
street gang in St. Paul, who some years
ago were discovered dynamiting fish in
this lake, and left the country before
any arrests were made.
A second attempt will be made this
year to stock Prior and Spring lakes with
wall-eyed pike, lake trout and land-locked
salmon. The first attempt was made at
least ten years ago and no results have
so far been obtained with the exception
of a few small wall-eyed pike that have
been "taken from time to time.
This vicinity Is going to furnish some
fine quail shooting this fall. The mild
winters of late years have furnished the
quail an excellent opportunity to in
crease in numbers. The hard winter of
1895 killed off most of the quail in this
vicinity; but their numbers were replen
ished by shipments from Tennessee the
following year and since then they have
been steadily increasing until now, when
they are more bountiful than ever. On
the other hand, partridges are very
scarce. This is probably due to the fact
that the timber land Is rapidly being
cleared away and the birds find considera
ble difficulty in finding good feeding
grounds and cover.

NEW GAME LAW TEST CASE
IOWA SPORTSMEN INTERESTED
Game Killed in Violation of Law

Special to The Journal.
Dcs Molnes, lowa, Aug. 19.—Sportsmen
throughout the state are watching with
interest the progress of & case in which
there will be a test of a new game law
enacted at the last session of congress
through the efforts of Congressman Lacy.
William Waggoner, living near Vandalia,
in Polk county, was arrested on informa

fish «.nd game warden, charging him with
violating the state game laws by ship

The president owns the stoop "White

one of the most enthusiastic members and
during the summer months spends much
of his time at the lake. John Dobbin,
of Shattuck, another member of the club,

United States commissioner, charging
Waggoner with violation of the interstate
commerce statute which makes it an of
fense to ship game killed in violation of
law from one state to another. This is
the law fathered by Congressman Lacey.
It is severe in its penalties, $200 and costs
being the minimum pnuishment.
This is the first case of the kind the
federal authorities have taken up, it is
said. It is the first prosecution of this
nature to be made by the new fl3h and
game warden. He has been probing into
several cases of alleged illegal shipments
and more arrests are likely to be made.

Twenty-sec. .1 Annual Meet of the
FROM AUGUST 80 TO SEPT. 7
Some Special Matches, International
and Interstate, at Sea
Girt, K. J.
The twenty-ninth annual meeting of the
National Rifle Association of America, the
second annual meeting of the United
States Revolver Association and the tenth
annual meeting of the New Jersey State
Rifle Association, will be held at Sea Girt,
N. J., under the auspices of the last asso
ciation, from Aug. 30 to Sept. 7.
At the same time there will be held two
intenational contests, the first In twenty
three years. One of the contests is for
the Palma trophy, representing the
world's championship. This trophy has not
owned the largest yacht on f the lake called
the "Lola," but some three or four years
dismasted her, put a canopy over her and
now uses It for a tow for the gasoline

been contested for since 1880, when the
American team won it by defeating a team
from Great Britain. This year Canada is
sending a team to try and take it across
The other match is a special challenge
match between teams of eight men from
the Ulster Rifle Association of Belfast,
Ireland, and the New Jersey State Rifle
Association—fifteen shots for each man at
800, 900 and 1,000 yards, with any rifle.
The Irish team sails for America on the
21st inst. In the party will be, besides
the team, the Marquis of Dufferin and six
or eight prominent Irish sportsmen.
All of the Interest in the coming tour
nament Is not, by any means, centered in
the international matches. Never in the
history of rifle shooting in this country
has there been so much interest manifest
ed in the annual interstate matches by
the guardsmen of the different states.
As against six states being represented
by state teams, which is the largest num
ber ever before assembled together in
competition, there will this year be about
eight state teams on the ground to com
pete for the Hilton and Marathon trophies.
The United States marine corps will
also be represented by a strong team,
which has been training at the navy range
at Annapolis for over a month. The de
apartment of the east, U. S. A., will also,
in all probability, send a team from Gov
Battery B, light artillery, of Boston,
will send a revolver team to defend their
title to the military team championship,
won last year.
Sea Girt will certainly be an interesting
place to visit during these national con
tests. Every arm of the service will be
represented, and the encampment will be
as near a national camp for our armed
forces as we are ever likely to have.
Military riflemen are not going to mo
nopolize all the interest at the meeting.
The Schuetzen shooters are also well
looked after. The National Rifle Associa
tion of America has in its pragram a
team match for civilian clubs, and all of
the larger clubs will send their best men
to try and win the pennant and inter
club championship of the United States.
Such well-known clubs as the Massachu
setts Rifle Association, Philadelphia Rifle
Association, New Jersey State Rifle As
sociation, Zettler Rifle club of New York,
Pittsburg Rifle club, Crescent City Rifle
club of Scrauton, Pa.; Iroquois Rifle club
of Pittsburg, Pa.; Hoboken Independent
Schuetzen corps, Elite Rifle club of Brook
lyn, San Antonio (Texas) Shooting Socie
ty, Syracuse (N T. V.) Rifle club and the
Italian Shooting Association of New York
will be represented.
Revolver shooting enthusiasts will have
their interests well looked after by Dr.
Sayre of New York, Lieutenant Paine and
E. E. Partridge of Boston, E. L. Harpham
of Chicago and J. B. Crabtree of Spring
field, Mass. Everything possible has been
done to provide interesting matches. An
innovation is a disappearing target, at
which the contestants have only twelve
seconds in which to fire their six shots.
The railroads of the country, rec
ognizing that there will be thousands of
visitors attending the tournament, have
made special rates to Sea Girt, beginning
Lieutenant Albert S. Jones, secretary of

I have the pleasure of informing you, and
beg that you will notify your president and
the committee, that the Union of French
Shooting Societies, while not being able to

has nevertheless been desirous of testifying
Its friendship to the National Rifle Associa

The latter team won by an innings and
68 runs. The St. Paul eleven were handi
capped somewhat by the absence of their
two best bowlers, A. Ramsey and W.

a strong team in the field.
H. W. G. Richards played a splendid
game and had 54 runs to his credit when
retired. P. Godwin and D. A. Pellatt
were the only others to secure doubte

was one of the features of the game, and
the quick work of the entire eleven was

UNDER THE LACEY ACT
A South Dakota Fanner Arrested for
Shipping; Quail. *
H. F. Becker, a farmer, living near Elk
Point, S. D., has been arrested for ship- '
ping quail and prairie chickens out of the
state. This is the first time the federal
government has prosecuted anyone in the
northwest for that offense. Becker was
arrested under the Lacey act, passed by
congress May 25, 1900, and designed to pre
vent the shipments of game birds in vio
lation of local laws. Becker is charged
with shipping seven boxes, three barrels
and one drum containing an aggregate of
912 quail and 186 prairie chickens, the
same being consigned to P. B. Pratt & Co.,
Boston, and billed as dressed poultry. The
birds were seized at Chicago by George W.
Clark, congressional game warden of 1111
Becker's defense is that the game was
killed in Nebraska. The Laoey act places
game birds under the jurisdiction of the
laws of the state from which they were

CROSS BRED TROUT
Native Brook Trout Crossed With
the Loch Lomonds.
VERY GAMEY AND NICE FISH
The Rainbow Trout Not Popular—
The Lake Superior Breed
Cross-breed trout are going to supplant
the native article In Minnesota, according
to Sam T. Fullerton, executive agent of
the state game and flan commission. Six
years ago, at the state flan hatchery at In
dian Mounds lark, St. Paul, the experi
ment was tried of oroasing the native
brook trout with the Loch Lomond trout,
imported from Scotland. The cross breei
resembled the Scotch, variety, retaining
the brown spots, but proved twice as
g«.mey as either of It* progenitors.
"When wo feed them at the hatchery,"
says Mr. Fullerton, "they will jump right
out of the water, sometimes two feet.
They are a great game fish. We kept
the crosses for breeding, and have stocked
many trout streams with them, in Wlnona,
Houston, Fillmore and St. Louis coun
ties. We get the same report from them
everywhere. They multiply rapidly, ani
prove the fines* kind of fish for sport.
We will not do away -with the n*tiv«
trout entirely, but are working into the
cross breed as far as we can."
Rainbow trout are not popular, and wIH
be dropped by the hatchery. They are
gamey enough, but poor eating compared
to the other varieties.
Another cross breed was tried several
years ago. The Lake Superior trout and.
common brook trout were crossed. The
result was a handsome fish, large as the
lake trout, but with all the marks of the
brook variety. The egg of this cross
breed proved sterile, however, and th»
experiment wap not a practical success.
CnltlTatingr the Steelhead.
Mr. Fullerton has great faith in the steel
head, a new variety of salmon trout being
introduced Into Minnesota. He says:
The steel head is the coming fish for ou*
deep water lakes, such as Minnetonka, and
the lakes about Alexandria. They are a great
game fish and rapid growers, and the moat is
of excellent quality. We have some 2-year
olds at the hatchery, weighing three or 'our
pounds, and are breeding them for stocking
the lakes. I asked tha government this year
for a large supply of eggs, but only got about
The only steel heads now in Minnesota
waters are in Lake Superior and some of th»
trout streams in St. Louis county, which feed
the lake. They were put there by the govern
ment several years ago, and we have had
excellent reports from them. They coma into
the nets of lake fishermen quite often. The
first one caught, two years ago, was sent to
me. Tha crew did not know what sort of fish
The open season for steel heads is the
same as for other trout, from May 1 to
Sept. 1. They spawn in the fall, in the
rivers and creeks, and in the spring come
down into the deep waters of the lake.
The scientific name of the fish is salmo
gairdneri. It is similar to the rainbow
trout in apppearance, but the body and
head are a handsome steel gray tint,
hence its name. It comes from the Pa
cific coast, and was originally a salt water
fish, only coming into fresh water to
spawn. It has taken kindly to fresh
water lakes, however, and promises great
things. When the state fish hatchery
has raised enough to begin slocking, th»
steel head will be given a trial in Mlnne
tonka, and other deep water lakes of Min
