Bob" Anderson Lravtt for Mansfield anil ? Cleveland for Entries. "Bob" Anderson, one of the speed superintendents of the West Virginia State Pair Association, left yesterday afternoon for Mansfield and Cleveland, where ho will attend race meetings this week for the purpose of securing additional entries for the state fair races. Ho will spend to-day at the Mansfleld track, and then go to the Valley meeting at Cleveland, where some very fast pacers and trotters are entered, and of which he expects to corral many for the Wheeling raoes. Mr. Anderson was seen Just before his ? * ??annniir. I departure, anu apunc u> ? aging way of the prospects for the state fair races. He confidently predicts that there will be a larger lot of entries at the coming fair than ever before. The larger purses are In part responsible for this Increase, and then there la the additional favorable fact that there are no conflicting dates In trl-state radius. In former years there have been Invariably one or two fairs In this section at the time the state fair was on. and of course this was a dotrlment to the races here in that horses were attracted elsewhere that would have come to wheeling but for the conflict In dates.

Although it is not yet assured, It is probable that a Wheeling company, composed of picked men from the three Wheeling companies, Couer de Leon, Bernard Shonley and James T. McGee, will figure in one of the. big drill contests at the encampment. It Is believed Wheeling could furnish as well drilled a company as almost any city in the country. Newby OvaJ, in Indianapolis, where the contests will obcur, is the bicycle race course over which the recent races of the national meet of the L. A. w. were recently run. It has many advantages over any place where the drills have been held before during the biennial encampments. The space Inside the race track Is perfectly level and is Just large enough for the maneuvres, and not large enough that spectators cannot see every movement from any part of the seating arrangement. The track )s a quarter of a mile around and it Is flanked on all sides by the grand stand, pavilions and "bleachers," making a continuous bank of seats entirely around it. The seating capacity Is 16,000. The prizes offered for these drills are the largest ever hung up-for a like occasion, and have attracted all the crack xfimtianlnn frnm thf? Atlantic tO the Pa clflc. The first prize In the open contest for companies is $1,500, the second la $1,200 and the third is $1,000, while there are a half dozen smaller prizes. There are also proportionately large purses of-, fered to be competed for by companies who have never won a prize at these tournaments. Large prizes ore also offered for battalion and cavalry drills, and, In' addition, a number of special prizes and purses are offered by business houses and individuals. There will be four days of the drills. A nominal admission fee will be chargcl to see them, except to members of the Uniform Rank in uniform. It is possible that the gathering of <he Knights of Pythias in Indianapolis will be turned into a big Jollification on account of the close of the war with Spain. The Uniform Rank, Knights of Pythias, prides Itself on being a reserve army of the United States. It Is strictly mtiitirv nnrf hn* nn Its membershlo rolls the best drilled men In the land. When the war with Spain became Inevitable whole brigades and regiments tendered their services to the governors of many states, offerinn themselves as organizations to light the battle of their country. As is well known the call came for the National Ouord and the offer of the Uniform Rank could not be accepted. But a great many members of the rank were also members of the National Guard, and these are now enlisted as United States volunteers, while those who were ( not fortunate enough to get mustered In are Waicning uieir pruKrcsv ~ with deep interest. While the Uniform Rank *0 a body and the members as individuals are ready and have ever been ready to respond to a call to arms, they are equally as ready to hear that the terms of peace have been agreed to ana If such news comes while they axe In camp or shortly before the encampment begins, surely "there will be a hot time ip the old town." There will be a lively contest during the meeting of the supreme lodge of the Knlghte of Pythias over the selection of the place for the next convention. The supreme lodge has the settling of this question, Inasmuch as the Uniform Rank, the Rathbone Sisters an?l the nf Vhnritee/in olop.f to ITlOOt 81 the same place and time as the supreme lodge. There Is some talk, however, of holding the supreme lodge convention at a different time and place and If this plan Is adopted It will probably result in making the Uniform Rank encampment an Independent affair. If this change Is made It will not make the fight for the encampmcnt any the less Interesting. It will only change the seat of the war from the convention of the supreme lodge to the supreme assembly of the Uniform Rank. Louisville, Dallas, Denver, Omaha and Boston are candidates. Louisville will probably come with the largest following. It is nearest and has the support of all the sou in, emu 01 me ?ii?ubii'|'? *? wv>?nvittee representing the Knights of Pythias and the commercial bodies of Louisville has been formed to formally extend an Invitation for the 1900 encampment to come to the Fall* City,and besides it la said that several thousand people from Louisville and Kentucky will be at Indianapolis to help the boom along. Omaha, Dallas and Denver will all make the fight on at least one common plea, that the encampment has never been held west of Kansas City. Dallas has arranged to send a crack battalion to compete In tho big battalion prize drills. Denver will offer as the greatest Inducement the fine climate and the beautiful trip, besides a promise of good treatment from the railroads. Omaha was a candidate for the encampment of 1892 but was defeated by Kansas City. She has waited now eight years and will argue that It Is rightly her turn. Boston has not been formally announced as a candidate yet, but It Is believed, now that a low railroad rate has been made to Indlannpollw, that the fever will take ponsesslon of tho "bean-eaters" and that they will send a big boom party. The first rour mentioned cities ??*? organisations to work for the next encampment nnd some lively times may be expected when, they begin the work. CAUT. BLONDELL HERB. Capt. L. D. Blondell, the champion long-distance ocean swimmer and noted life-saver, arrived In the city Inst night, from Iowa, where he has been tilling several aquatic engagements. He will look over the adjacent water courses and If suitable will endeavor to arrange to give a series of his swimming exhibitions here at an early date, lllondell holds the world's records nnd will ; be remembered a few years ngo giving nn excursion nt Chippewa Lake, when u lar?o crowd from Wheeling witnessed his performance. The captain has a record of saving thirty-two lives. He swam three and one-half miles on the lower Ohio river, and sixteen and onehalf In old ocean. DEATH OF MRS. 8CHNBLLB.
