Yale-Harvard Boat Race.
NEW LONDON, Conn., June 28.—The
Fourteenth annual four-mile straight away
eight-oared boat race, between crews rep
resenting the universities of Yale and
Harvard, was rowed from Winthrop's
point to Gale's ferry and was won by Yale
by six boat lengths. Official time: Yale
21:30, Harvard 21:33. A series of rcces be
tween these colleges now stand: Yale 8
victories, 6 defeats Harvard 6 victories, 8
defeats. Yale also holds the record for the
fastest time over the course (20:10), made
last vear. The crowd which saw the race
was unusually large, there being several
thousand more strangers in town than
for several years. Throughout the
race the demonstrations by friends
of the two crews was noisy and exciting
to a high degree. The race, originally set
for 11 o'clock, was postponed until even
ing on account of very rough water. The
Yale crew were the first to show up, com
ing down the river at 6:25 and getting into
their boat at 6:50. Harvard was very
slow. They had their shell stored in the
boat house near the start. In spite of this
they kept the Yale crew waiting in their
shell fully 40 minutes. At 7:14 Harvard
pushed away from their float and pulled
to line, where they were quickly lined up,
and after Yale had made a false start,
promptly sent away by the refree at 7:20.
At the word "go," Harvard caught the
water first and her shell forged ahead of
Yale by halt' a length. Harvard started
off with a strike of 34 and Yale 32
At two miles Yale showed a boat's length
ot clear water, and the race was finished so
far as Harvard's chances were concerned.
At that point (two miles) Yale was pulling
33 and Harvard 32. After passing the,
two-mile flag, Nos. 5 and 7 in the Harvard"
boats splashed badly and their body move
ment was bad. Yale's long, sweeping
stroke sent them further and further
ahead and at the two and a half-mile flag,
they had a lead of fully four lengths.
At three-quarter mile Yale struck smooth
water, close under the bank, and two ad
ditional leugths were quickly added to her
lead. Harvard made a final effort to less
en the distance, but to no purpose, as Yale
crossed the line easy winner by six lengths.
The official time for each half mile was as
follows: Half mile 2:28, one mile 4:47,
mile and a half 7:15, two miles 10:03, two
and a half miles 13:01, three miles 15:87,
three and a half miles 17-35, four miles
The Rochester Insane Asylum.
ST. PAUL, June 28.—The special com
mission to investigate the rsports of out
rageous treatment of patients in the
Kochester insane asylum began its session
in this city to-day. A large number of
witnesses were examined and some sen
sational testimony heard. Mrs. Luck told
of visits to her husband at the asylum, and
discovering that he was being badly cared
tor and much maltreated. Mrs. Saphrona
Snarp proved a good witness. She said
she was taken to the asylum on April 5,
1882, trom Northfield, and was thereuntil
the 9th of October of the same year. The
fault she found was not with the treat
ment bestowed upon her but upon other
patients. There was a girl named Mur
phy there at the time, a simple and inof
fensive creature, who was not violent.
One day Dr. Vincent jumped on this
poor girl with all his force, his knees
striking her with full force in her
abdomen. He stayed on top of the girl
sometime and punched her with his fist.
There was no possible call for his action.
The witness saw this with her own eyes.
One time when a girl had been confined
unwarrantantably in the '"crib," a place of
detention for violent patients, Dr. IVincent
entered the crib and jumped ou the girl
and trod upon her. The struggle lasted
'. perhaps half an hour. The witness closed
the door so that Mrs. Bowers,
who was in a delicate condition,
might not hear the terrible
screams of the girl. The girl never ought
to have been hardly deal with in the
world. The next witness detailed the case
of Mrs. Andrews. Mrs. Andrews, the wit
ness graphically related, was the woman
who was not of the violent class, as far as
she knew. She had been shut up jn the
crib for a number of days at a time, with
nothing to eat. Mrs. Andrews was kept
at different times in the crib entirely nude.
.She was once taken from thetg nude and
scrubbed with a common broom. Witness
also mentioned other instances of unwar
ranted abusive treatment of patients. Mrs.
M. Downing, of South St. Paul, said she
I visited her daughter, who was a quiet pa
'\-tiept at Rochester and found that some of
her teeth were knocked out and that her

Castle Garden Romance.,*
NEW YORK, June 27.—The romance of
Castle Garden is shadowed by a letter re
ceived to-day by Superintendent Jackson.
The writer was Marie Beya, 23 years old,'a
French girl who lives in Wlndom, Minn.
She asks the Castle Garden superintendent
to help her to trace her relatives? The girl
states she cameto. this country*" with her
mother twenty^toe,: years airo on the
steamer Cella fronrHavreiOnarrival her
mother was suffering^rom typhoid -fever,
and with her mother she Was transferred^
to Ward's Island hospitals The mother
died and the writer was adopted by a fam

lived with the family ever since. "I never
knew," she writes, "what my right name
was until recently, for the folks that took
me when my mother died would never let
me know anything about my parents. I
do not know what my mother's name was
and do not know whether my father is
living or dead." She is anxious to find out

The Webber Murder.
LA CBOSSE, Wis., June 28.—Thus far the
police have been unsuccessful in their
efforts to establish the identity of the mur
derous burglar who entered the house of
John Webber yesterday morning and so
horribly cut Lena, one of his daughters.
Of a number of persons who were arrested
on suspicion, ten have been held for an ex
amination which will be held to-morrow.
Among those arrested is one rough looking
fellow on whom was found a blood stained
knife and a hankerchief which had the
appearance of being used in wiping a
bloody blade. The doctors are examining
the blood stains and the police are making
a thorough investigation. The injured
girl still lingers between life and death,
and the doctors state that her death is only
a question of a few hours. Excitement is
as great as yesterday and lynching is
freely talked of on all sides.
The Burton Block Burned.
CHICAGO, June 28.—Fire was discovered
in the third story of the Burton block, cor
ner Van Buren and Clinton streets this
morning at 5 o'clock, and by 7 O'CIOCK the
big building was in ruins. The Burton
block extends along Van Buren for 200
feet and the same distance north on Clin
ton. It is six stories, with a large fire wall
dividing it into north and south sections.
Finished as it was, with pressed brick and
cut stone trimmings, it was regarded as
the model building of the neighborhood.
Some fifteen or more firms or business
interests were located in the burned por
tion, which.-is south of the central fire
wall. The other portion remained intact.
The loss on the building is estimated at
$90,000 on contents $200,000, divided among
a.large number of firms. Owing to the
supposed substantial character of the
building only a small line of insurance was

RUSHFOKD, Minn., June 28.—It was a cy
(Jrfone, water spout and hail storm all com-
ed that passed from one to five miles
of Jhero^ destroying everything in the
-croplinenrIts paih. It.probably gath
ered over the town of Wiscoy, Winona
county, entered Money" creek, Houston
county, on sections 2 and 3, passed almost
dAe south, curving slightly to the west
through Yucatan and the east part of Nor
way in Fillmore county, then on through
Preble till it spent its force. A belt two
miles wide in the pathway of the storm for
three miles in length is absolutely laid
waste, trees being as bare of leaves as in
winter. The loss by the storm cannot fall
below $100,000. Immense trees two feet or
more in diameter have been torn up and
twisted off. For two miles in width the
merciless hail pelted everything into the
ground. It crossed the railroid track
where tte section men were at work and
they say that hail fell fully as large as a
man's fist, and the only way they saved
their beads was by holding their shovels
over them. David Jensen, a son of Ole
Jensen, was out with a pail which he
put over his head to keep off
the stones. To keep the wind from blow
ing it off he held it on with both hands
till badly bruised. One man plowing out
corn unhitched from his sulky and Had

railroad had, for a distance of 200 feet, its
track covered by drift and sand two feet
deep and in some places three. One
bridge was partly carried away and a mile
further on toward Money Creek station
there was a bad washout. This delayed
the 5 o'clock passenger train for five'hours.
The deluge of water would indicate a

HUM'S TRADE \RKVIKW
Shows a Decided Improvement in Crop
Prospects In the Northwest.
NEW YORK, June 28.—R. G. Dun & Co.'s
weekly review of trade says: It has been a
week of considerable excitement in* specu
lative circles and of heavy general trade
without material change in the conditions.
As all depends in a large measure, at this
season, upon the crop prospects, it is most
encouraging to find reports in this, par
ticular unusually favorable. The only
note-worthy exception being that some
damage to cotton and grain from frequent
rains i? reported at Galveston. In the
northwest the grain outlook is particularly
fine, great improvement being reported in
quarters where there] had been some appre
hension. With crops of unusual mag
nitude highly probable, and with
the general volume ot business
so maintained that an increase
of 30 per cent, over last year appears in
the closing house returns, the prospect is
not gloomy. Detroit notes a quiet busi
ness and Kansas City and Omaha report
fair activity. At Milwaukee a fair im
provement is'seen, with greater activity.
Wheat has advanced 2 cents with sales of
24,000,000 bushels on Wednesday and 55,
000,000 for the week, but all accounts of
harvesting thus far are satisfactory. Corn
and oats each declined a fraction and
coffee is still sold heavily, the transactions
for the week reaching 740,000 bags, and
has declined cent. Pork and pork pro
ducts are all a little stronger. Business
failures nnmber 215 as compared with 220
last week, and 250 the week previous. For
the corresponding week of last year the
figures were 201. a

vA Horrible Murder.
LA CROSSE, Wis., June 27.—A burglar
entered the house of John Webber last
night through a window in a room occu
pied by his two daughters, Kate and Lena.
The girls were awakened while the robber
was searching their clothing, and Lena,
the younger sister, aged 13 years, attempt
ed to escape. She stumbled and fell, and
before she could arise she was seized by
the burglar, who plunged a knife into her
body below the tenth rib. He then pulled
upward, and a deep gash about nine
inches long was cut, leaving exposed the
heart, lungs and intestines. The assassin
then went to the bed and made a thrust at
the other girl, who managed, however, to
evade the knife. The family were aroused
by the noise, but the burglar escaped from
the house. The entire police force is at
work on tne case, and have made about
twenty arrests of suspicious characters up

Kilrain Also Hard at Work Prepar
ing Fpr th« Great Battle
on the 8th.
Sullivan's Condition. ,. •,
NEW ORLEANS, June 29.—J. W. Bar
nett, who left John LJSullivan Wednesday
evening at his training quarters in New
York, states he arrived here this morning
to receive the notice as to the selection of
the battle grounds. Being introduced,
Barnett said: "Sullivan never looked
better. 1 knew him when he fought Ryan,
and 1 tell you frankly he is in better shape
at present than ever in his life. As far as
1Can see there is not a bit of surplus flesh
on him, and the story that he is flabby
looking about the muscles is ail bosh. His
wind is rtccellent, and his legs are as solid
and strong as.bars of steel, just before I
left he skipped a rope 800 times without
a break, and a man must have pretty good
legs and mighty good wind to do that"
Sullivan does everything Muldoon tells
him, and lie realizes fully that he must
show the country again "just what he is
made of. When he strips the public will
be amazed to see the magnificent speci
men ot combined muscle he is. He is
verily a Hercules, and all his pristine
strength of limb and vigor of rush have
comeback. The big"fellow himself has as
little fear about the result as he would
have if Andy Bowers was to be his oppo
nent. Barnett says that Muldoon is
deserving of great credit for what has
been accomplished in training Sullivan
and giving him lessons in wrestling. He
says that when Sullivan gets into the ring
ne will know a point or two about wres
tling that have never occurred to Kilrain.
Barnett does not know who will be behind
Sullivan in the big fight. Cleary can be
counted on, but the other man is unknown.
Maybe it will be Ashton, though Sullivan
did not know himself last week who was
likely to assist Cleary. Muldoon is spoken
of and could fill the bill, but Muldoon
would hardly care to get behind John.
He would prefer to have some
experienced man. However, the
matter will be decided in a
few iys, and when it is the name of
the missing second will be made public.
As far as Sullivan is concerned, nothing
will interfere with the iight unless the
champion drops dead. The Kilrain party
will be conceded everything in order that
there may be no kick. Any square man
to referee the game will be satisfactory
to Sullivan, and it does not matter where
he hails from. There will be plenty
of good men down from the north, and
there are good men right here in New Or
leans capable of serving. As far as the
interest north is concerned, it is getting
more intense every day. So far there has
been little betting in New York, but what
there is of it, Barnett says, is |favorable to
NEW YORK, June 29.—Charles Mitchell,
Jake Kilrain's trainer, was in town to-day
and left again for Baltimore. Mr. and Mrs.
Mitchell left Baltimore last night and got
here early this morning. Charlie called on
Manager Clark at Richard K. Fox's office
and arranged the time of Jake Kilrain's
leaving his training quarters for New
Orleans, scene of the battle. Clark pro
posed that Jake board the special train
which will leave Jersey City on the morn
ing of July 4th, and Charlie liked the pro
position. The train will take on excur
sionists at Philadelphia amTBaltimore and
thus it is likely Kilrain will accompany his
friends to the battle ground. Mitcnell said
he never felt more confident of Kilrain's
ability to whip Sullivan* "It is a pleasure
to be his trainer," he added.
The Champion at Buffblo.
BUFFALO, July 1.—A special train on
the West Shore consisting of two Wagner
sleeping cars and a baggage car left
Rochester at 8:36 p. m. to-night under
charge of Thomas Kllkenney of Syracuse,
and picked up Sullivan, Muldoon, Charlie
Johnson and J. Warner of Rochester at
Church-hill junction. The pugilist and
his trainer had left the Western New York
& Pennsylvania train before arriving at
Rochester and gone round the city to avoid
the crowd. They had been misunderstood
and came into tne cars bathed with per
spiration, for they had tramped about fif
teen miles without any supper. Sullivan
was the most cheerful of tne four. He
wore a white soft felt hat, coarse woolen
undershirt with a tourist's shirt of pink
nannej owr it, and a rough suit of clothes.
Muldoon was not in a mood for talk
and soon ordered Sullivan into the car
which had been reserved for them.
Later on Muldoon said: "Sullivan
is ready for a long or short fight, which
ever it may be. He is able to fight fur
iously and fast for an hour, or stow and
sure for three hours." The champion was
tired and soon fell asleep^ -while'MuldoOtt
watched over him in a fatherly way. Mul
doon had on board some jugs of water,
hermetically sealed, which he brought
from his well at Belfast. At Clarence near
this city. Sullivan was given a lunch,
of hard boiled eggs, corned beef sand
wiches, which Muldoon got at athotel near
the station. The special arrived In Buffalo
at midnight and switched to the Nickel
Plate tracks at East Buffalo, without com
ing into .the city, thereby disappointing
another crowd of friends, who were waltr
ing at the station to catch a glimpse of
him. The train will arrive at Cleveland
