Goldfield, Nev., Sept. ".Determined to keep Goldfield on the pugilistic map, ,Tex Rickard, president of the Goldfield Athletic club, announces the offer of $25,000 purse for a fight between Joe Gans and Jimmy Britt Christmas day. There is only one condition, the men must each put up a forfeit of $10,000 as a guaranty of good faith. Joe Gans said when asked if he would accept: "I am now undisputed light-weight champion and will defend the title against all comers. I will glady ac cept the offer of a $25,000 purse and as soon as Britt accepts my forfeit wil be ready." Gans collected $11,000, the loser's end of the purse, yesterday afternoon, while N'olan gathered in $22,500. Gans has a cut mouth to remind him of Nelson's headwork, while his right hand is in bad condition. A ligament is strained and Gans may not be able to put on a glove for several weeks. He is in receipt of numerous offers from theatrical managers, but will be unable to accept. Gans says that his right hand went back on him in the fifteenth round, which accounted for his changed tactics. He called for Larry Sullivan and said: "My right hand is gone. I can last for hours, but do not bet any more money." This explains why Gans used his right so sparingly during the conclud ing rounds. The defense of the color ed man was so excellent that Nelson could not land on him with any effect. In regard to the foul blow which end ed the fight, two doctors who made an examination say that Gans was fouled, but that he did not suffer any permanent injury. Nelson did not show up, but remain ed at his quarters all day. His face is battered and he will not be presenta ble for a couple of weeks. He took tife biggest gruelling of his career. Gans sent his head back with heavy blows at least 100 times during the fight and the Dane showed himself the greatest human punching bag in the game, not excepting Joe Grim. Nolan and Nelson are scheduled to leave for the springs near Manhattan in the course of a few days. There was considerable money won and lost on the fight, but lack of Nel son money at the end was very notice able. One of the biggest individual winners on the contest was Larry Sullivan, who won something like $20, 000. Gans will take away about $16, 000, which includes the purse. The pictures will not prove as re munerative as expected. The machine failed to register the last two rounds, besides the fight was not nearly half as fast as the Britt-Nelson fight. In general the opinion of all the sporting men is that Nelson will have to cut loose from Nolan if the Dane ever expects to get another match. Nolan lost all caste here, owing to his reprehensive tactics. It was learned t&day that Gans had nothing to eat for twenty-four hours before the fight but beef tea. MefiOVEKN BRITT. New York, Sept. 7.—The reputation of Goldfield, Nevada, as a fight center having been satisfactorily established by successfully pulling off the Gans Nelson fight Labor day, fighters from all over the country are up and do ing now. Even Jefferies, who has times innumerable announced that he was through with, the game, comes out from seclusion with an itching palm and says that he may take a whirl pt the game again, as the succulent purses hung up by the Nevada pro moters are very enticing, and if a man can be found that will try and wrest his aurels from him the gigantic gladiator will be willing to arrange a match. SCARCITY OF QUAIL. Connecticut Sportsmen Worried— Blaine the Game Laws. Even while the fishing season is at its height^ says the New Haven Pal ladium, sportsmen are thinking of the fall hunting, and they are particular ly concerned about quail. At this time of the year they begin to observe the conditions regarding the parent whist ling for its young and the calls of quail are pleasant music to them. Then the sportsmen usually hear the farmers talk about finding quail nests about their grounds, and if these signs are propitious they look for a good hunting season, and it is 8tated that they are seldom disap pointed. The signs do not point to an extra ordinary quail season. Several of the hunters who have been out in the country a great deal during the last few months and are frequently roam ing about fishing streams say they have not seen any Indication of quail. They have missed the familiar whist ling sound, and even in such sections as Derby Neck, where the quail are more loudly heard than in any other place, there have been no signs of these birds. The farmers do not report having come across any quail nests or having seen young quail, and it is no wonder, under these circumstances, that the sporting members of the community feel blue. To their minds it foretells a scarcity of game next fall and, of course, a poor season. They naturally begin to consider the problem as to' why no signs of the birds have been observed. Some are inclined to think that the laws which have been passed -have something to do with it. Whether there is any logic In their reasoning or whether it is a superstition among them, a number of sportsmen firmly believe that the nore laws are passed for the protec- *r -•'Ik tion of anything the scarcer that thing will grow. One of them remarked last night that quail were plentiful in this section of the country until the game laws and the trespass laws were passed, when they began to grow scarcer each succeeding year. Even when quail are imported for breeding purposese the same thing is true. Then the scarcity of this bird—or rather the supposed scarcity—is part ly accounted for by the fact that farm ers have become accustomed to pro hibit hunters from trespassing, and finding that the trepass laws are not always observed and that they are subject to considerbale annoyance, not to say damage by sportsmen, the farmers have determined to kill all quail as the source of trespass in the fall. THE Dl'LI'TH PLAYERS. Three of Them Have Joined the St. Paul Team. Unless they remain in the city to play a series of games with Hibbing, the Duluth baseball players will scat ter to the four points of the compass tomorrow or the next day, says the Duluth Herald of yesterday. The series with Houghton has been called off, as Manager Cassiboine tele graphed last evening that he was un able to keep his men together. O'Dea then attempted to arrange a series of games with Hibbing for Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sun day, but this has not yet bee closed. Three of the Duluth players have al ready gone, Moore, Krick and McCor mick having joined the St. Paul team. Moore was knocked out of the box in the first inning of yesterday's game with Milwaukee, but Krick went in and pitched good ball. McCormick re mained in Duluth until last night. "Al" Cummings will return to col lege this fall taking a short vacation until it begins. He is planning to change over this year and go to Min nesota in place of Wisconsin. It will make little difference in his athletics, as his professional baseball will bar him at either university. Heding will also go back to college, returning to Knox to finish his course there. Fagin has secured a position with the Great Northern railroad in this city and will remain in Duluth all win ter. He likes the city and says he wants to settle down here. Barto will probably return to his trade for the winter. The big cen terfielder is a tonsorial artist and will have no difficult" landing a job in this line at any time. The other players will return to their respective homes. O'Dea and Treadway live in Minneapolis and they will go back to that city for the win ter months. Treadway is a fairly ex pert telegrapher. Tracy's home is in Galena, 111., while Stevens lives in Grand Rapids, Mich., and Leighty in. a small town in Indiana. They will all pack their grips and flit away as soon as the Hib bing series is over, or within a day or two, if it is not played. THE AMERICAN LEAGUE. Staadlag of the Claba. W. h. Pet.

A prominent North Dakota swine breeder recently made this pertinent statement: "I will never buy another herd header unless I see hirti. I recent ly bought a pig from one of the most prominent and reliable eastern breed ers, and described very carefully what kind of a hog I wanted. 1 further told him that price was no object, and did not even inquire what his prices were, but did insist that I wanted the best pig he would sell. He sent me a good pig and charged me $50 for him. Theh pig is worth the money, but not to me as he is not what 1 want, being weak where 1 wanted him strong and he is not likely to l*e much of a corrector in my herd. I would cheer fully have paid three or even more times what 1 did, if he was what I wanted." And there was no denying that the breeder was correct in his statements. We know the reputation of the seller in this case and do not believe that he intended to impose on the buy or. If he illd. he would have charged more money. One of two things is true. Either his judgment as to what consti tutes the ideal of the breed he is han dling is faulty, or else he underesti mates the knowledge and requirements of Dakota breeders, thinking perhaps that the buyer did not know what he wanted and that something "pretty good at not. a high price" was what was wanted. Probably the latter. In either case, he has done himself an injury that he cannot repair, and has lost one good customer, and likely many njore. And right here is where many eastern breeders make a mis take. Our experience teaches us that Dfpota buyers discriminate as closely as do eastern people, and further, that ... .... they are fully, as competent to ludge of quality. If the people to the east of us expect to build up a business here and hold it, it behooves them to take note of this fact and to* see to it that what stock they send here on mail orders is as good, or a little better, for a given amount of money, than what they would expect to sell at home. And especially in cases like this, where the hog was to head a nure-bred herd, and where the kind of a hog wanted was carefully de scribed, no limit set on price, and where it was stipulated that the best in the herd was none too good. The buyer in this case is not to be commisserated with, for if the pig con tinues to develop he will be well worth the money—perhaps more—and there are some sows in the herd with which he can be mated and good results rea sonably be expected. He says further that the lesson is worth what it cost him. This is a cheerful view to take of it, but the chances are that the dis appointment is keen, nevertheless. But there is an important lesson in this and similar transactions for all. The buying of a sire to head a pure bred herd is perhaps the most import ant duty that falls on the breeder, though many treat it quite lightly. Upon the individuality and the breed ing quality of the herd header depends very largely the material welfare of I the breeder, and the selection of one should enlist the best there is in the breder. While it is a wise policy never to waste a dollar, it is very un wise to scrimp on an individual that is to be half of the herd and upon whom may depend the breeder's fu ture. There are many instances where one sire has made the reputation and the fortune as well of a man. and there are many more cases—though we do not hear of them—where a sire has been a positive detriment in a herd even to the extent of eventually driving the breeder out of business. In many cases those of the latter class could trace their downfall, if they would, to buying a herd header withh out inspection, and then hanging to him after he was received. It costs money to select a worthy herd header, for they are not as numerous as is generally supposed, and when one is secured that is worthy his place, a proper valuation should be set upon him and he should be allowed to die in the herd. From the nature of the case, there always will be more or less of the mail order business, and this to the advantage of both buyer and breeder. However, it will always be the cause of more or less dissatisfaction, be cause what is one man's judgment of an animal may not be another's. This is often the case, though when the buyer is as careful to describe what is wanted as was the one alluded to above and when there is no restriction in price, the chances for misunderstand ing are minimized, or ought to be. When there is already a worthy sire at the head of the herd, though another is wanted and the buyer can afford to experiment, buying boar pigs" by mail is not so hazardous, because the new comer can be tried for a year with a few sows and then be kept or dis carded," as the results would indicato as being best. But when a first class sire is needed that is to go immediately to the head of a good herd, it is good policy for the breeder to pick him after personal inspection. Buying females "unsight and un seen" is another matter, for an un worthy sow affects the herd only as far as one litter is concerned, and can thus do very little harm, if she does not do good. ATTEMPTED MURDER BY USING HORNETS. AHMH-lated Preaa to The Kvealag Time*. Auburn, N. H., Sept. 8.—Miscreants whose identity is suspected, but not yet established, secured a hornets'nest of mammoth size and, plugging up the orifice used by the insects for en trance and exit, carried it to the barn of Captain Samuel Davis, an aged tarmer. Here, breaking through a rear door, they attached the big nest to the swinging doors in front in such a way that when they were opened the nest would be broken in two. At 6 o'clock a. m.. his* usual hour. Captain Davis went to the barn. Be fore he could run, he had been singled out for attack by the hornets, and they got after him at once. Hundreds of them alighted on his head and face. Captain Davis was horribly stung his eyes were swollen, and he was literally covered with the hornets. Captain Davis accuses his political enemies of the outrage. He says that he has fought the "ring" that controls affairs in Auburn for a long time, and 1b of the opinion that this course haB at last made' him enemies who are willing to go to any length to kill him or drive him from the town. THE EVENING TIMES, GRAND FORKS, N. D. DROWNED BI TTER. Is the term given to wei butter or butter saturated with moisture. One creamery obneeru was found to be soaking its butter with as much as 28 per cent of moisture. Very frequently the U. S. inspectors have found sam ples that contained around IS and 20 per cent of moisture. Just now there is considerable agi tation in favor of less moisture. This move Is a lodg step .hi the right direc tion. It should be remembered that first class butter should contain about 10 to 14 per cent of water, and by the methods usually adopted in the manip ulation of the cream at churning no more than this amount will be incor porated. The average buttermnker who has not made a study of incorpor ating moisture is not apt to get more water in his butter than the law allows. It is our opinion, with the above facta in view, that the one guilty of drowning his butter and palming off water at a fancy price is the buttermaker of big centralized creameries. It. is now generally conceded that first class cream should not contain less than 35 per cent of butterfat. There are several reasons for this and a few of the most vital ones are: It is'found that this per cent of butter fat will liieep better: it costs less to transport than a, lower per cent of fat, and the patrons will be just so much better off, because he will have more skim milk to feed to his calves and pigs. It also means less cream for the women folks to look after. With them this is quite an item in this hot weather. As long as the milk must be separated, why not do it right? It will take no more time and besides this you run less chance of having your cream graded low at the factory. Fodder Cora Xow." At this time of the year, the aver age dairyman is apt to allow the cows to shrink in their flow of milk. Not 8 a senous PXpeusive mistake, but an one- ,0°: expensive because it is one that he cannot recov'er from during the remainder of the year. If cows are not allowed to shrink now, they will be a source of profit during the fail and-winter. Pastures, at this time of the year, if not short, are be ginning to grow old and tough, thus forcing grass to lose its fresh crips nutrition. The very best feed that the cow can be given to kep up her flow of "milk is fodder corn. Fodder corn if cut and fed gren is practically the same as pasture, and if it has been planted right, can be fed up until frost comes on, in its green state. Be gin right now to feed fodder corn. If you have no fodder corn, then feed field corn. It is better than none at all. Choice and Ordinary Batter. Dairymen should not forget that the discrimination between choice and ordinary grades of butter is becoming more clearly defined each year. It is only the beet that is always in de mand and will sell at good prices when there is a surplus of the inferior grades that either are not wnated at all or else must be sold at a sacrifice. We can hardly expect that under these circumstances this order of things wil be changed or improved upon. It is merit that is going to win and if :'le dairyman expects to come out satisfactorily at the end of the year, it is of the greatest importance that he produce cream of the best grade. Try to do a little better than ever before, should be the watch word of the day. THC WILD CARROT LAW. Has Been on the Statute Books fpr the Past Twenty-five Years. The law regarding wold carrots and Canada thistles is as follows: Section 1374. Every owner or pos sessor of lands shall cut down all wild carrots and Canada thistles growing thereon, or in the highway adjoining, so often as to prevent them going to seed and upon failure so to do, any person aggrieved, or any citizen of the town wherein the lands are situated, may complain to any grand juror of said town, who shall thereupon no tify such owner or possessor of such complaint and said grand juror shall be paid for such service from the trea sury of the town, 10 cents for each mile travel in giving such notice, if such owner or possessor shall still neglect to comply with the provisions of this section he shall be fined not more than $5 for each and every day of such neglect after said notice and the expense of the grand juror who served the notice shall be included in the costs of the prosecution. Section 1375. City atul policy courts shall have jurisdiction- over* offends punishable under Section 1374 occur ring within the territorial limits over which such courts have jurisdiction. And complaints may be made 'to the judge of any such court, who sholl forthwith issue the notice therein pre scribed, to be served by a proper of ficer and the fee for serving the same shall be 10 cents for each mile of travel, payable by the city instead of the town, but, when followed by prose cution, to be included in and payable as part of the costs. It shall be the duty of officers authorized to prosecute in. said courts to prosecute all viola tions of said section within thqfr jur isdiction. The law has been on the statute books for the past twenty-five years, but prosecutions under it have been infrequent. The idea of political revenge ad vanced by Captain Davis is scouted by the authorities, who declare that the effort to wreak so horrible a venge ance is either the work of a degenerate or an insane person. That 'it. was a deliberate plan to commit murder in its most fiendish guise they are posi tive, though, and they bint that they are on the track of the persons re sponsible. SAN FRANCISCO FATALITIES. Total Number of Those Killed at the Time of the Earthquake. San Francisco, Cal., Sept. 7.—In all 452 persons lost their lives as the re sult of the disaster of April 18. The health department, bo stated in a formal report sent yesterday to the state board of health. Of the victims 266 were killed by falling walls, 177 perished by fire, seven were shot and two died as the result of ptomaine poisoning, due -to eating "emergency" canned goods of poor quality. Four hundred and tyen ty are believed to have been white, .18 Chinese and four Japanese. Elev en were less than a year old. What w$ can get from the world depends upon what we give to it. OEMS VERY BLUE OVER BRYAN'S SPEECH The New York Reception and Talk Blasts House Cam paign. Washington, Sept. 8.—Whatever may prove to be the ultimate effect on Wil liam J. Bryan's reception and his radi cal declaration in favor of government ownership of railroads. Its Immediate effect has been to destroy the last vestige of interest in the campaign his party is conducting for the control Of the house. This is reluctantly admit ted by those in closes touch with the campaign, and melancholy reigns at the headquarters of the democratic congressional committee in this city. The record of the republican majori ties in the 'last session of congress, the undiminished populwlty of President Roosevelt and the general disposition of the voters to let well enough alone had combined to make the efforts of the democratic committee sufllcienty uphill work, but there were a few contributions coming in and some slight evidences of enthusiasm up to the time that Mr. Bryan landed in New York. Then all democratic eyes were rivet ed on him, and the most loyal mem bers of the party appeared to forget the congressional campaign. But since Mr. Bryan has declared himself on railroads and antagonized the Solid Sduth the prospects of a divided and Ineffective party in 1908 have proved too much for the optimism of the most enthusiastic democrat, and the Hon. Jim Griggs has been obliged to devote his entire attention to the problem of maintaining workers, printing campaign literature and pay ing office rent 'with air, very hot air, too, sometimes. It is noteworthy that there is gen erally comparatively little Interest in the congressional campaign. Even the republicans are reported to be prone to look forward to 1908 rather than to remember the earnest appeals of the Hon. Jim Sherman for dollar contributions, but this is not regarded by any means as an ominous sign for the republicans, beyond the incon venience to which the committee may be put in meeting campaign expenses. On the contrary, It is maintained, and with reason, that the apparent apathy of the voters merely indicates that they are tntirely satisfied with existing conditions and that when Election Day arises they will stroll quietly to the pools and drop their ballots for a continuation of republicanism and good times. Of course there are some, exceptions to the general trend of affairs political. For instance, there are things doing in the 2d district of Maine, where certain labor leaders have gone after the scalp of Representative Llttlefield. The democratic congressional com mittee admits that it is very short of heavy guns, but it has responded to the appeal of the democrats in Mr. Littlefield'B district and will send Reprensentative Charles Towne to re ply to Secretary Taft and Speaker Cannon, who will address the voters in Mr. Littlefield'B behalf. Mr. Towne will speak in Rutland on Sep tember 6 and 7 and in Farmington on September 8. He is now on his way from Oklahoma, where he has been spell-binding, and is expected in Washington tomorrow. In certain districts of New York there will be some lively contests, and Iowa has witnessed an exciting struggle for the control of the state organization, but, taking the country as a whole, there is an entire lack of interest in the democratic nominees and a quiet determination to retain the republican majority which has accom plished so much under' the skillful guidance of President Roosevelt. Perhaps Wisconsin presents the most notable exception to. the general rule. There factional differences have created strife and the adherents of Senator La Follette are reported ready to sacrifice republican seats in the house rather than permit lifelong re publicans who refuse to bow to the domination of the governor-senator to be returned. It is reported that repre sentatives Miner and Stafford will be defeated and even Representative Bab cock has a serious fight before him. Of course the first contests will occure at the primaries, but it is maintained that if the old members of the house win there the effort to defeat them will not stop dhort of the polls. No matter how little interest is tak en in politics elsewhere, Ohio is al ready to conduct a war to the death and this year Is no exception to the rule. Representative Burton has thrown down the gauntlet to Senator Foraker, and there promises to be a lively..contest for control of the state organization, but the well posted ones say that whatever they may'do to each other the Ohio republicans will not fail to squelch their democratic breth ren, and they will give an excellent 1 account of themselves when Election Day arrives. OPPPOSED TO GIRLS WEARING OVERALLS. Associated Presa to The fSveafac Times. Eldora,' la., Sept. 8.—The success or failure of the beet sugar industry in Bremer county, in this state, may hinge upon the solution of the contro versy over whether the women weed ers shall wear their ordinary garb or bifurcated garments. It has been the custom of girls em ployed in the beet field to don a pair of overalls like the men, so as to give them freedom of movement in clearing the beets of weeds. Some puritanical persons object to this habit, on the ground that it is "immoral and leads to destruction of modesty." The girls declare that the wearing of skirts has deterred them from doing rapid work, and, therefore, they put on overalls. The young women seem to like the change and take to the new garment quite generally, finding it just the thing for their work. They insist that a large, roomy pair of overalls is no' more Immodest than a skirt, es pecially so in the beet field. A local enthusiastic supporter of the crusade against girls wearing overalls asserts that the beet field will be worse than the dance hall as a source of evil If the overall habit be con ducted. Success is utter failure if achieved by the sacrifice of moral principle, says the Indianapolis News. u* A AWw ilV c» 5^** •^s? 1 h4^5r THE T|TRF. Many occurence of the past two de cades and even of the last few years have been hailed by enemleB of thor oughbred racing and by pessimists among Its friends as foreshadowing the doom of the sport. Laws that have passed have been considered evil portents, and the disagreement be tween the Jockey club and the Met ropolitan Turf association was pro claimed by many aB the harbinger of the decay of racing. No further argument on this^point Is needed, however, than Saturday's Sheepshead Bay crowd. The thous ands and tens of thousands gathered not to greet a Sysonby, because there was no such turf Idol to draw them. They were there not evenfp see (he two-year-old crown fixed irmly on some equine brow, for with Salvldere missing, the Futurity could hardly be called decisive of two-year-old horses. Theyvwere there simply because they were hungry for the sport and its gambling accompaniment. What a metropolitan crowd particularly crav es is excitement. It will go to any expense and any effort for such a stimulant, as it finds in the sight of a field of swlfe thoroughbreds, each strving with might and main to reach the goal first. And when at this is added the opportuntiy to risk money on the outcome of the struggle, the combination becomes too enthralling for ordinary human nature to resist HEAT DELAYS TRIALS. All Age Stake Completed at Wink Peg. La Salle, Man., Sept. 7.—The Intense heat today interfered very materially with the-running off of the all-aged stake of the Manitoba field trials yes terday, but the first series was com pleted and four brace run in the sec ond leaving but one heat for tomor row morning. Whether a third series will be called is a matter known only to the judges at present, but many in cline to the idea that there will be one. Conditions for running the second ser ies were most unsatisfactory, simply slaughtering the high-class dogs whose misfortune It was to have to run. The derby will be befeun tomorrow, and it is hoped that it may be com pleted is time to permit the champion ship stake to be run on Saturday but that seems utterly impossible. In one of the early heats this morning, Mr. .Beazel, the handler of Caesar, one of the greatest dogs in the stake which was lost yesterday in his heat had the misfortune to lose also Butram, his dashing pointer in a much more sim ple way in afield of stocks, putting both of his crack entries out of the running. He had his racers keyed up too high evidently and fortune failed to smile on him. DAN PATCH TODAY. Will Attempt to Lower His Record at Minnesota State Fair. Special to The Bvealas Ttaea.
