TEE STATE FAIR BACKS.
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

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.

, COPER DE LEON
| Company of Uniform Rank Getting
in Shape to Figure
AT INDIANAPOLIS ENCAMPMENT
NEXT WEEK?A DRILL WAS pELg
ON THE SOUTH SIDE LAST
NIGHT AND THE BOYS SHOWED
WHEELING COMPANY MAY FIGURE
IN THE PRIZE CONTEST AT
THE ENCAMPMENT NEXT
Last night at the corner of Twentythird
and Market streets, South Side,
Couer de Leon company No. 1, of the
Uniform Rank, Knights of Pythias, had
one of the last drills that will(be possible
before this company and the others
of the First battalion, First regiment,
leave for Indianapolis next Sunday
morning. 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
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
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
