NOT A HIPPODEOME. H. M. Dufur Stoutly Affirms That He Does Not Know Who the Man Dunbar Is, /"""" J , — /*- ■'- ■« But is Willing to Bet Big Odds That He Isn't Flagg, tho Vermont Ghamuion. Prof. Barnes Locates the Ball Grounds on West Seventh street, Near the Crossing. Dill SWEARS HIS INNOCENCE. He Says He Don't Know Dunbar, but He Isn't Fine?. The wrestling match that has been ar ranged between EL M. Dufur and Mystery Duubar Friday night, furnished the sport ing fraternity yesterday with grounds for lively discussion and a great deal of guess ing. Mr. Dufur was not pleased to learn that the impression was abroad that the affair was to be a hippodrome, and when a Globe ieporter met him in the . liyau ro tunda yesterday afternoon he expressed his regrets that the morning papers had so alluded to the match. In regard to the matter he said: "1 swear upon my honor as a gentleman that 1 don't know who Dunbar is, but I am sure he Is not Fiagg, as I have wrestled with him several times. So has Col McLaugh lin, and he will tell you he is not Flagg. I never saw this man until be rose that night ami challenged me. 1 then thought he was a man ho bad been brougLt hero by Lewis, but I can't prove this and am as ignorant of the man's ii. entity as you are. I have agreed to wrestle with Duubar, whoever he is, and so far as I am concerned tho match will bo a square one and for blood. 1 bate to have my name mentioned in connection with hippo drouiing, as it Is something I never was guilty of, us my record will show, and if my friends in tbe Bait get the impression that lam out hero for the purpose of duping the citizens of St. Paul it will shake their cotibdeuce in me. Consequently, I want the people to under stand that 1 know nothing about this man Dunbar, never saw him before and have not been in collusion with him, and that the match next Friday night will be a square one." "Mr. Dufur," said the reporter, "don't you think that the manner in which the affair was conducted Monday uight when Dunber chal lenged you and subsequent proceedings had the appearance of being a previously arranged dodge?" "Vis sir, I admit that it looked that way." ••Then you think the people had some reason for looking with suspicion on the com ing- match?*! ••It 1 bad been In their position I don't doubt that I would have looked upon it in the same way. I can't blame them for being suspicious. You see it isn't necessary for me to hippodrome. I'm not in the business for the money there is in it. I have a good business at home that gives me a comfortable income. I'm not a Vanrterbilt. but I have money enough to live on without getting what I can out of wrestling. I have a good record and a clean reputation, and I couldn't afford to injure either by mixing myself up in crookedness before the public." Mr. Dufur certainly does bear a cred itable reputation, and those who are acquainted with him can testify to his gen tlemanly bearing and his apparent innocence of anything like the practice of deception. WHO IS "DUXBAB?" As to Myster-y Dunbar, he is as non committal regarding his true name as he was Monday night. He claims that he is a professional wrestler and has met Duncan 1 Joss. When asked when he met Ross he made the "astounding" revelation that he met him "in the United States." He says he proposes to keep his name to himself until after the match, when he may give it out. He may not. He says he never met Dufur before Monday night and only knows of him by reputation. He's going in the ring Friday night to win if he can and if he can't he'll lose and do it gracefully. The suspicion that he is John Farley of San Francisco is still unfounded, and his hands certainly show no signs of bis having spent many days pounding an anvil with a sledge hammer. Undoubtedly Dunbar would have been able to arrange a match with Dufur just as quickly under his own name as under a norn de plume, as there is no wrestler on earth that Dufur is afraid to face in a straight collar-and-elbow contest. * As yet the men have not agreed on a referee. Frof. Duplessis will be unable to come down from Minneapolis Friday night. as he has a business engagement that even ing. Mr. Dufur said yesterday that it made no difference to him who was chosen Jo referee the match, so long as he was well acquainted with the rules and was a fail man. It is more than probable that Prof. Barnes will be selected. B Col. McLaughlin and Myster-y Dunbar were talking together after the match Mon day night and McLaughlin is said to have made the remark: "Dunbar, 1 don't know who you are and 1 can't wrestle you for money or in public, but I will go into a private room with you in the presence of six men and wrestle you for fun. and if I don't throw you three straight times I'll give you the best suit of clothes in Si. Paul." All the reply that Dunbar made to this was: "By gosh, I guess I'll get measured for them clothes now." It is not probable, however, that Mc- Laushiin and Dunbar will meet either pri vately or in public. In regard to accepting Lewis' challenge, Mr. Dufur said yesterday that he would not wrestle a mixed match with him, but would wrestle a straight collar-and-elbow match with him any time. Hull ton ml* Located. Prof. Barnes has at last decided on the base ball grounds. At lirst it was thought best to Locate them in West St. Paul, but West .Seventh street was finally decided upon as being most convenient. The grounds include an entire block, bounded on the north by the Chicago. Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad, on the east by Toronto avenue, on the south by Jefferson avenue and on the west by Warsaw street. The location is a splendid one, and one more convenient could not be found inside the city limits. The grounds lie just across the Milwaukee track from the old West Seventh street grounds, and the Seventh street cars pan within half a block of them. The Milwaukee road skirts the northern limit and arrangements have ben made for trains to stop going to and from St. Paul and Minneapolis, as the grounds and special rates will be made tor transportation from each point Citizens of Minneapolis can board the train in that city and in twenty minutes be set down at the grounds and they can return every hour. From this city the grounds are about ten minutes' ride by the Milwaukee road or the street car line, which renders it very con venient If the grounds were in West St. Paul omnibuses would have to be depended upon for transportation, and people from Minneapolis would be unable to reach the grounds so easily and so little expense as they will the present location. A high board fence will be built around the block and a grand stand erected. In the fence outside will be placed rings for the purpose of hitching horses and no teams will be al lowed inside the grounds. Two special policemen will be detailed to watch the grounds and prevent any disorder. Follow ing is a diagram showing the location of the grounds: . .. ., .• . —Grand stand.

We will conduct our business on principles that are as ETERNAL AS THE ROCK-RIBBED HILLS, HERE ! are reasons why THE Great Manhattan will be able to substantiate what they say: NOTHING BUT COMMON HARD SENSE ! ' FIRST — They are manufacturers and make every stitch of their own Clothing. Instead of selling to the jobber at a profit and the jobber selling to the retailer at a profit and the retailer selling to the customer at a profit, three profits, they, THE MANHATTAN sells direct to the customer and gives him the benefit of three profits, IS THIS NOT REASONABLE? How can others sell as cheap as us when they have to pay the two profits above named. SECOND — As to quality of goods since they manufacture their goods, they see every piece of cloth before it is made up and so know just what it is. Since they are manufacturers they can afford to carry the largest assortment to select from because they are never afraid of having any goods left over, for whatever they can not sell in this market they can in another. THIRD — They cannot afford to sell poor goods at high prices, BECAUSE They have come to stay. BECAUSE They want your confidence. FOURTH— BECAUSE THE ONE PRICE GIVE A WRITTEN GUARANTEE, and where goods prove unsatisfactory money will be cheerfully be refunded, and where a child can buy as cheap as Well as the BEST JUDGE OF GOODS.
