AFTER BATAED The Aggressive Statesman of the Kenne bec Country Gets a Mania for Official Documents. And it is Said His Ultimate Intention ■ is to Secure the Scalp of Oheva lier Bayard. Senator Van Wyck Issues a Mani festo. Asking an Indorsement of the Voters of Nebraska. . The Order Extending: the Special- Delivery System to All the Country's Postofiices, After the Irish Vote. Special to the Globe. Washington, Aug. 15.— Mr James G. Blame is evidently arming for an assault apon the present administration, especially .v regard to the conduct of the department if state. During the past few days he has sent to the capitol for a large list of execu tive documents, copies of official communi cations to congress from the president and ither departments. This indicates that he , s preparing for an aggressive campaign, tie has got a complete list of pension vetoes, appropriation acts, including the river and harbor act, documents relating to ;he tariff, the coinage of silver, the londiß't of the treasury department .11 regard to reducing the surplus md other subjects upon which the Demo cratic party in congress and the administra tion are not agreed; but the largest demand .lias been made on documents lelating to the state department. He has obtained the jorrespondence concerning THE FISHERIES TROUBLES with Canada and the imprisonment of Ed itor Cutting; in Mexico, Copies of new ■reaties and old treaties with England and with other countries he has called for. He :ould not be supplied from the document room of the capitol with printed copies of ;he new treaty with England relative to the ixtraditiou of dynamite fiends, which is aow a subject of diplomatic negotiation; aut he is no doubt armed from another source with a reliable copy of that. The published version of that treaty has already ingerad the Irish newspapers and the Lrish patriots, and, as Mr. Blame is known to have been in close consultation with Mr. Patrick Ford, the editor of the Irish World, lately, it is to bo expected that Mr. Blame intends to take advantage, among other things, of that indignation in an effort to catch the Irish vote. Certainly he is pre paring for a great effort, and it is apparent that the state department, in its foreign" policy, is going to be the main point of attack. WANTS AN IN DORSE 111 NT. Mr. Van Wyck Asks the Nebraskans to Vote on Senator. Omaha, Aug. 15.— 1n 1875 there was in serted in the state constitution a proviso that at the general election preceding the expiration of the term of a United States senator from this state, the electors by bal lot shall express their preference for some person for the office of United States sena tor. No action has been taken on this pro viso up to the present time. Senator Van Wyck, who is a candidate for re-election, has determined to apply to the people for their expression of preference under this proviso, and has accordingly issued a mani festo. This will be the first instance of a direct vote of the people for United States senator, and it is supposed that the choice just made will be binding as a matter of honor ,on Jthe legislature. Senator Van W'yck's appeal is as follows: To the Electors of Nebraska: In a country srpverned by the people and for the people, the highest prerogative is that for an uu trammeled choice of the public servants who administer the government. While the national senate represents the SOVEREIGNTY OF THE STATES, Bach senator should be the true representative of the sovereign people of the commonwealth. This was the aim and object of the framers of our state constitution when they made provision for the expression of the popular choice in the selection of a senator. For leu years this provision of our constitution has been a dead letter, although a law framed in conformity with the constitutional proviso •was passed by the legislature- years afro, and officers of election are required to make re turns Df the vote upon the electors' prefer ence for United States senator. No aspirant has as yet ventured to ask the people for a direct expression of confidence or preference. "Without presumption on my part that any man has a vested right to public office. However meritorious or faithful he may be, I desire to appeal to the people of Nebraska for a dirict vote expressing their preference for United States senator. There arc doubt less others in this state more worthy than I am of your confidence, and it will afford me great pleasure to meet any of them for a public discussion of the LIVING AND VITAL ISSUES of the day. The office of United States sena tor is a position of groat responsibility, and the people should know the views of every man who desires to represent Nebraska in the upper house of congress. I trust that it is not inappropriate in this conuoction to re fer briefly to my services In behalf of the state during my term now drawing to a close. By that record let judgment be given. I have doubtless erred in some instances, as all men do, but even my worst enemies can not refer to any act that would implicate my personal integrity or reflect discredit upon the state which has honored me. While I claim to have done only my duty in the light I was able to see it, and claim no credit for the faithful discbarge of tho trust committed to me, I only desire to exercise the right which I have, in common with a right to chal lenge my competitors for the senatorial posi tion, to a submission to a popular verdict of their respective claims to the senatorial suc cession. C. O. Van Wyck. Nebraska City, Aug. 14, ISS6. SPECIAL. DGUVERY. The New System to bo Extended to All the Offices of the Country. Washington, Aug. 15. — The postmas ter-general has issued a circular of informa tion and instruction to postmasters concern ing, and preparatory to putting into opera tion on Oct. 1, the act of Aug. 4, 1886, au thorizing the extension of the special-de livery to all postofrices and all mailable matter. This circular provides as follows: Every postofHce in the United States and territories and the District of Columbia now established and which shall be established while the foregoing act remains in force, is hereby designated as a special-delivery office. These regulations take effect Oct. 1, 1886, after ■which date every postmaster will be held re sponsible for the immediate delivery of every article of mailable matter which may be re ceived addressed to his office, properly stamped with a special-delivery stamp. AN IMMEDIATE DELIVERY must be made when the article is directed to an addressee residing or having a place of business within one mile of the postoffice. The obligation to so deliver does not apply to an addressee beyond that distance, but the postmaster is requested to make such delivery beyond said limit and receive compensation therefor as in any other case. This is com mended to him as a proper and consistent thine to be done, in accommodation of the Bender, whenever it is reasonably convenient, The hours within which immediate delivery eball be made shall be at least from 7 a. in. till 1 p. m., and further until the arrival of the last mail, provided that such arrival be not later than 9p. m. Postmasters are not re quired to make delivery of special-delivery matter on Sunday, but will be at liberty, how ever, to deliver special-delivery letters and parcels arriving on Sunday. Such immediate deliveries from third and fourth class offices may be made by the postmaster himself, by »ny assistant or clerk, or by any other com petent person he may employ as _ messenger. THE SERVICE CONTEMPLATED by the law requires that all special delivery matter shall reach the address with T the greatest possible expedition after it arrives at the postoffice. Postmasters ■ should, there fore, open all mails at once on their arrival and immediately separate the matter bearing epecial-delivery stamp, and the stamper write M on the envelope or wrapper the name of the office and the date and the hour when the matter was numbered, after which it must be delivered without loss or time. For every special-delivery article delivered the post master must take a receipt. After a apecial delivery article has been taken out for de livery aud has been returned with tho infor mation that the person addressed has re moved to tho delivery of another office, and the article is then forwarded, it is not to be regarded as entitled to special delivery at the second office. Registered matter will be en titled to special delivery the same as ordinary matter when bearing a special-delivery stamp in addition to the full post and registry fee required by law and the regulations. No ef fort will be spared by postmasters or any other postal officials to expedite the mailing of matter bearing special-delivery stamps. CHANGE IN WORDING. The words "secures immediate delivery at a special delivery office" will, however, be changed to read, "secure immediate delivery at any postoffice" on the special-delivery stamp now in general use. The use of stamps with the former words will be con tinued until the present supply is exhausted. Suitable supplies of the special-delivery stamps will be sent to any postoffice in the county which may make requisition for them, and are to be sold by postmasters in any re quired amounts, and to any person who may apply for them, but they can be used only for the purpose of securing the immediate delivery of matter. Under no circumstances are they to be used in the payment of post age of any description, or of the registry fee, nor can any other stamps be employed for special delivery except the special-delivery stamp. The special-delivery stamp must be in addition to the lawful postage, and any article of first-class matter not prepaid with at least ONE PULL RATE of postage and a parcel of any other class of matter, the postage of which has not been prepaid in accordance with the law and regu lations must be treated as held for "postage," even though bearing a special-delivery stamp. Postmasters of fourth-class postoffices are not entitled to commission on special-delivery stamps and parcels mailed by them. No fail ure in any iustanco where delivery is possible can be considered excusable. Every com plaint of a failur* in such delivery will bo promptly investigated aud the responsibility fixed with proper consequences. No office, however small, is exempt, aud tho system and duties und&r it are so simple that no excuse can be accepted for any failure to meet the obligation. Should there be as many special delivery stamps as one-fifteenth the number of ordinary stamps, and a larger salo may be fairly expected, tho gross allowances will equal the total compensation now paid fourth class postmasters together. Extension of Monopoly. Special to the Globe. Washington, Aug. Persons in the patent offices say there have been several cases in which the owners of an expiring patent have induced some other person to get up an interference and claim, priority of invention. Then the first patentee made no defense, patents were issued to the new applicants, who immediately, in accord ance with a pre-arranged plan, assigns his patent to the original patentee, who thus secured a seventeen years' extension of his monopoly. This is supposed to be the explanation of the removal of Gray's appli cation for patents on the telephone three months ago. and the inaction of the Beil company. The consolidation of all the telephone interests, whereby the rival com panies will stop lighting each other and unite in an attack on the public, as was done by the parties to the great sewing ma chine contest in the early years of the en terprise, is understood to be in progress. Many New Ships. Special to the Globe. Washington, Aug. 15.— adminis tration is going to be notable in history for the number of new ships which will be built or contracted for during its existence. Counting the . double-turreted monitors which will be completed, there will be six teen or seventeen new ships put afloat dur ing President Cleveland's administration. Of the entirely new ships,- only four have yet been named. One of the thiugs that Secretary Whitney has on his hands is the choosing of names of five new steamers, the armored cruisers, the torpedo boat and : the dynamite gun vessel that are to be begun this year. A Gray and Bell Rumor. Special to the Globe. Washington, Aug. 15. — There is a well defined rumor here that an understanding has been reached between the Bell Tele phone company and ; Prof. Gray which is mutually satisfactory. Whitney's Large Task. Special to the Globe. Washington, Aug. 15. — There is a ru mor afloat that Secretary Whitney will shortly reorganize the navy department on his own responsibility, and before doing so will appoint a chief contractor and a pay master general. The story, however, can not be confirmed at the department. THE PRESIDENT'S TRIP. Reporters Given Notice That He Does Not Desire Them to Follow Him. Special to the Globe. Washington, Aug. 15.— The following particulars of the president's trip are learned this evening: The president leaves to-morrow for a month's vacation in the Adirondacks in New York. He will be accompanied by Mrs. Cleveland and her mother, Mrs. Folsom. No mail will be forwarded to him or opened by him during his absence. Any public business requiring his immediate consideration will be brought to his attention ' by the cabinet officers. -To the numerous special correspondents who have asked to accompany him on his trip, the president has said that he was sure the public did not desire that minute details should be given of his movements during his vacation, as such a course would ut terly defeat the purpose of his trip, which is complete rest, and quiet and freedom from annoyance. He believes that the people are willing to concede this to him, and so far as their re quirements are concerned in the matter of news, that they will be satisfied to per mit him a release from impertinent in trusion, and he believes that the decent press of the country is also willing that this should be accorded him. At any rate, he will feel fully justified in an effort to ren der unsuccessful any attempt to defeat his wish in this particular. In recognition, however, of the pardonable curiosity of any incident of interest that may take place during his vacation, he has himself made arrangements whereby anything the public should be interested in or ought Vto know concerning his movements, will be furnished to the agents of the regular press associations. A Peculiar Accident. New York, Aug. — Daniel Madigan, a teamster, fell from the roof of a house on Madison street to-day and was killed. Thomas Donovan, aged 12 years, who was passing along the street at the time, had his right leg fractured and was internally hurt by Madigan's striking him. // Rates Demoralized. | St. Louis, Aug.. 15. — The recent refusal of the Vandalia railway officials to pay Commissioner Blanchard's drafts in settle ment of the old pool balances, has disturbed things greatly in railroad circles here, and rates to the east have become quite demor alized. It is stated that a round lot of grain has been contracted for at 20 cents, and that cuts from 30 to 6 cents have been made in thirteenth-class freight. » ■";■■ "-"'■ ■• How He Was Slashed.

The Mad Eioters of Belfast Continue Their Terrible Sacrifice of Human Lives. A Shot Enters a Car a Short Distance from the Head of Miss Minnie Palmer. The Tories Increase the Friction by Taking Sides With the Police Officers. Germany, Austria and England Be lieved to Have an Informal Un." derstanding. Blood Flows Again. London, Aug. 15. — Rioting has been re sumed in Belfast. From mid-night last night until 4 o'clock this morning a rifle fight was in progress on the Shankhill road and the Old Falls road. One person was killed and many wounded. The town is seething. A dispatch from Belfast says: Sectarion troubles have broken out again. Expert marksmen this morning conducted a rifle fight from roofs, tops of chimneys, stacks and street corners. Immense crowds of partisans, who carefully kept out of range, were prepared to assist by sup plyiug amunition and removing tho wounded. The sides were equally divided. The moon shone brightly throughout the contest. The Orangemen admit that one of their number named Macfarlane was killed, and that two others named Smith and Johnson were mortally wounded; also that there were numerous minor casualties on their side. Whenever the military ap peared the combatants shifted their ground. Finally at 5 o'clock, after THE RIOT ACT had been twice read the troops charged upon the crowds and cleared the streets temporarily. An old man and two women, the inmates of a house on Conway street, from which many shots had been fired, were arrested. They state that they had been forced to run into the house and had remained there all night, firing from the roof. The mob to-day repeatedly fired upon the police. A tavern owned by a Catholic, situated in a Protestant district, was fired. The order instructing the po lice to use buckshot instead of bullets, has been cancelled. An Orange procession, while passing through the streets of Wid ness, Lancashire, yesterday evening, was fired at by the spectators. The Orange men thereupon broke ranks and attacked the crowd. Oue of the spectators was stabbed and mortally wounded, and two policemen and a number of other persons were injured. MISS PALMER' 3 CLOSE CALL. Dublin, Aug. 15 — As Minnie Palmer and her company were nearing Belfast in a railway train last evening the windows of the train were struck by a number of shots and stones aud one bullet struck within four inches of Miss Palmer's head. THE TORIES' TASK. Special to the Globe. Dublin, Aug. 15. — Representative men here think that, apart from the mischief that this whole ugly business in Belfast has done the Unionist cause in the estima tion of the outside world, the Tories have made their own task next to impossible by taking sides with the police. The royal Irish constabulary have been faithful. For years they have done the most repugnant and despicable work of landlords, and have borne the execrations of the people and a loss of their own self-respect with a pa tience almost marvelous to behold. Stories are common of their taking subscriptions to save from starvation wretches whom it was their duty to turn out of their homes, and of their obeying orders to the extent of tear ing roofs from their own relatives' houses aud firing into crowds where their own FRIENDS AND SWEETHEARTS were. These are the men who have been put for three weeks with their hands tied at the mercy of the Belfast mob. They could have put down the revolution in a day if they had been allowed to do so. But in stead of this, for ten days they were com pelled to face the rioters, who were told by the Orange mayor, magistrates and the press that the police were Mr. Worley's mur derers, who had no right to interfere with the decisions of Belfast. It is not very strange, under the circumstances, that the police are profoundly dissatisfied. I am told that all over Ireland a great change in their attitude toward the Nationalists is ob served. They will never again do so harshly or so readily the work of eviction and re pression. Here in Dublin pride at the man ner in which the Catholics in the main have kept cool under fearful provocation from Belfast, is beginning to be mixed with a feeling that patience has pretty nearly reached a point where it is no longer a virtue. Over a mouth ago Belfast was pro claimed UNDER THE ARMS ACT, but not so much as a toy pistol has never been surrendered, and the police have never been sent in search of arms in a single Protestant house, though it is there arms are notoriously kept. Then again, to pla cate the delicate susceptibilities of the Or angemen, no police are allowed to go into the Shankhill district. One ventured in last night because his home was there, and he returned with his skull cracked. The Orange papers boast that it will be long months before a policeman|again dares to show his head in that section. No magis trate rebukes the threat. Mr. Healy, who has just returned from, a brief vacation in the Highlands, put the thing in a nutshell to-day, when he said: THE WHOLE TROUBLE in Belfast arose from the discovery that under Mr. Morley the Orangemen were not privileged to shoot papists when they wanted to. They have been bred to believe that they had the same rights over us that man has over the animal creation. They resented the attempt to divest them of these rights as much as the Dutch ruffians did the effort to make them stop pulling live eels in half, the subsequent difference being: that the Dutch authorities took the side of the eels, while everybody, from the mayor of Belfast to the editors of the London Orange papers, has espoused the cause of the Orangemen, and praised them as heroes vindicating their manly independence. These Orange men are not at all bod fellows of themselves. They have some magnificent qualities, but they are led by a lot of bigots and scoundrels who have not even a glimmer of an idea of what fair play means. You noticed last week what a horrible outcry all tbe Tories and Orangemen raised because Mr. Morley before he retired named a dozen HOME RULE BARRISTERS to assist in registration. Every revising bar rister before in that close district was a Tory Orangeman actually unable to see any decency in the idea that the Catholics ought to have some representation, too. To them the thing seemed monstrous, as in fact does everything which is not their way. One of the best results of home rule will be to edu cate them out of this childishness and make intelligent citizens out of them. Lord Salisbury's harsh and cold reference to Ireland has attracted small notice. No - body cares much for him or his intentions. Mr. Sexton is working hard, I am told, ou a speech which shall bring up the subject of the Belfast riot, as soon as the session opens. It will be remembered that he had a notice or paper in the last parliament to call attention to Lord Randolph Churchill's inciting to violence in Belfast. Debate was expected on this, but it was never called up. Now all the material he gath ered there will be brought into requisition. Much more had been added by events. There is an expectation that the Belfast murders once raised, and Lord Randolph Churchill forced on his feet, there will be a big scene, the effect of which will very possibly be to bring the whole Irish matter into a ionsL and exciting discussion. Mr. Parnell is at home in Wicklow. He leaves for London, Aug. 18. An Informal Understanding, ; • Special to tho Globe. London, Aug. 15.— Economist says the Batoum affair and the Bulgarian diffi culty have rendered Prince Bismarck sus picious of Russia, and have led Germany and Austria to discover Russia's selfishness. This may lead to an informal understand ing between Germany, Austria and England, which may serve the purposes of a triple alliance for the maintenance of peace with out the risks and responsible irksonieness of an ordinary alliance. matters in i'anama. Panama, Aug. 15.— house of depu ties of Peru has approved the constitutional reform bill, which gives a member the right to retain his seat in the house and to fulfil his duties as minister of the cabinet at the same time. The customs reform bill has been presented to congress by the governor. The celebration of the sixty-fifth anniversaryijof the independence of Peru was characterized throughout by marked enthusiasm among natives and foreigners. The small-pox is spreading very extensively throughout the republic of Chili. It was hoped that as soon as the rains set in the disease would decrease, but notwithstanding there being plenty of rain, it appears to be on the in crease.

Shocks of Earthquake. London, Aug. 16. — Three shocks of earthquake were felt in Malta yesterday at intervals of eight hours. No damage was done, but the people were made frantic with fear. LACK OF £NEBGV Said to be the Cause of Bayard's Cool Treatment of Minister Jack son. Special to the Globe. Washington, Aug. 15. There has never been anything to prepare the public for the information that our minister to Mexico is on bad terms with the secretary of state, or that he has lacked his confi dence, but the very small part that had been allotted to him in the Cutting nego tiations is occasioning considerable remark here. Mr. Jackson, without waiting for instructions from Washington, but on the strength of a letter from Consul Brigham, wrote to the Mexican foreign secretary asking that more humane treatment be ex tended toward Mr. Cutting. In this letter he waived all questions of Cutting's offense and the rights of the Mexican government in the premises, because this fact of the case is being discussed . between Secretary Bayard and Mr. Brigham. . Although Mr. Brigham reported the case to the state de partment under date of July 11, it does not appear that the state department communi cated with Minister Jackson until July 19, when Mr. Jackson was directed to demand the instant surrender of Cutting. He was not called on to make investigation of facts or to use any discretion, and now that fur thur information is desired in the state de partment, it is not procured from Mr. Jackson, but through Mr. Sedgwick, a per son not in the government's service, but se lected to obtain it. It was about the time that the Cutting case became public that Mr. Jackson's desire to recede from Mexico became currently reported.- There is a growing conviction 'here that the sec retary of state w^as dissatisfied with Mr. Jackson's letter to Mr. Mariscal of July 6, in which he interceded for Cutting's good treatment only, and left all questions of the offense and jurisdiction to the state department, and that it was due to that fact that Mr. Jackson was so thor oughly left out of the case and the negotia tions carried on through Mr. Brigham, and that in consequence of this treatment Mr. Jackson offered his resignation. It is true that on July 8, Mr. Jackson wrote to the secietary of state, inclosing his correspond ence with Mr. Mariscal and explaining that, as Mr. Brigham had reported all the facts to Washington, he (Mr. Jackson) should take no further steps in the case un less instructed. It is inferred that Mr. Bayard thought Mr. Jackson should have taken greater responsibility, and should have demanded more than food and fresh air for Cutting, for Mr. Jackson's letter was never answered, but two days after Brigham telegraphed: Can't immediate, unconditional surrender be demanded? Mr. Jackson was instructed by telegraph to demand Cutting's instant release. On the 22d Acting Secretary Adee telegraphed Mr. Brighain the satisfaction of the depart ment at the justice of his action and \\\<9 ability he had shown, but there does not appear to be any similar compliment paid to Mr. Jackson. The minister to Mexico is quite an old man. though he was introduced to the public, which had forgotten him since he was secretary of legation at Vienna under Pierces administration and is a man of marked ability, when he was appointed to Mexico sixteen months ago, and the secretary may deem him lacking in energy. The Marquis in Hard Lines. New York Letter to the Troy Times. From a private letter from a friend in London I learn that the Marquis de Leu ville, a powdeied and laced guy who was the laughing stock of New York for several seasons, is in a sad way. He is, indeed, almost reduced to working for a living, and is growing more and more destitute. It may be remembered that he was the affianced husband of Mrs. Frank Leslie, who defended him against many of the good-natured attacks of local journalists with much spirit and fire. She finally threw him over, and now he's on the cold and cruel world. He weighed about 220 pounds, wore corsets, oiled his hair, -whiskers and mustache, wore women's shoes and gloves and was about the sickliest and most effem inate specimen we have ever seen. Edmonds In a New ffcole. Springfield Union. One of the senators says that he once saw Mr. Edmunds bend a pin and put it in the chair that Mr. Conkling habitually used in the cloak-room. Conkliug came in and sat down on the pin, but after the first twinge of pain he never budged. He told stories in his best humor, and Edmunds laughed uproarously. But when Edmunds went out Conkling swore savagely as he extracted the pin from his flesh. Tbo Reporter's staunch Friend. First Reporter— Say! What did you ask that old tramp to drink with us for?

St. Paul Dusts the Diamond at Leip's Park With the Olub of Decatur, 111. Ileelter Puts on His Batting Clothes and Scores a Total of Fif teen Bases. The Genesta Easily Outsailed by the Irex-— The Meeting; of Her old and Sullivan. Gallagher making a Record. Umpire Gallagher, who was the hero of the game at St, Paul on Saturday, made his first appearance in. that capacity on the Minneapolis grounds yesterday. The result was that, after outplaying Mil waukee at every point, Minneapolis lost the game. The home team got on to the one armed terror for a total of eleven bases and six runs, but one outrageous decision by Gallagher gave Milwaukee four runs in the fourth inning and a lead that Minneapolis could not overcome. Gallagher did not favor Milwaukee at all, and the impartiality with which he distributed his rank favors was all that saved him from the wrath of the crowd. Of the 2,500 spectators present ' many were Milwaukee partisans, who lost no opportunity to hoot at and deride the blunders from which Minneapolis reaped the advantage. The game was one con tinual kick from beginning to end, Shafer for Minneapolis and Pickett and Daily for Milwaukee, dividing time in heated debate with the umpire. A sample decision will suffice: Murphy was at bat, with two strikes called. A ball was pitched, Mur phy failed to strike and Colgan muffed it. The umpire was silent until Colgan had run after the ball, brought it to the plate and touched Murphy, when he shrieked, "Batter out," without having called the strike. In the fourth inning Banning popped up a fly for which Rhue ran six feet off the base and muffed. Gallagher called it a fair ball and gave Banning the base, four runs resulting. THE FEATURES OP THE GAME were the fine play of Banning and Holmes in their respective fields, the second-base play and batting of Shafer, and the general base running of tne Minneapolis team. Daily was hit very hard, and the Milwau kee fielders were kept busy doing their splendid work. When Daily first came to bat Murphy crept in toward third, so that •Daily's hit over his head, which would or dinarily have been easily taken, yielded two bases. In the fourth inning Doherty sent the ball over the left field fence, with the bases full, the only long hit Milwaukee made. Murphy made a . beautiful three base drive to the right field fence, and Crooks popped a ball over the same fence, inside the line, Dut Gallagher called it a foul. In the last iuniug Minneapolis made a desperate effort to tie the score. Crooks hit safely to right field and took second on a passed ball. Van Sickle hit an easy fly to Colgan. Sowders drove a long fly to the center field fence, for two bases, bringing Crooks home, but himself getting nipped at third. Webber ended the game by a short hit to second.

The St. Paul team defeated the "Decatur base ball nine at White Bear yesterday by a score of ten to seven in the presence of six or eight hundred spectators. The vis iting team proved to be a strong one and the game was interesting. It was an up hill game for the St. Paul team and re quired steady and hard work before it was won. Both nines scored in the first inning one run each, in the second the Decaturs gained a lead of three and it was not until the sixth inning that the score was tied. The winning runs were not made until the eighth inning. The Decaturs batted Duryea hard, making eleven safe hits.

Two Games in Louisville. Louisville, Aug. 15. — Two games were played to-day between the Baltimore and the Louisville clubs on account of the drawn game on Saturday. About 1,500 people witnessed the morning game. Kil roy was batted freely, while Ramsey was very effective. In the second inning the Baltimores filled the basses, when Fulmer came to the bat and knocked a foul ball near the third base. Umpire Walsh was not in a position to see it and called out fair ball. The Louisville fielders, mistaking the decision, did not make haste to get the ball, and three base runners scored. This caused Walsh to be almost mobbed. The feature of the game was Mack's home run. Score: Louisville 3 112 114 0 o—l3 Baltimore 1 4010000 o—6 BROKE THE RECORD. The afternoon contest was witnessed by 3,000 people. The feature of the game was Keeker's tremendous and unparalleled bat ting.

Gossip About the Coming' Meeting of These Giaut*< Special to the Globe. New York, Aug. 15.— 1f the expressed intentions of the pugilists are carried out, there will soon take place a tight worth witnessing, as J. L. Sullivan may yield his laurels, which drinking and dissipation have been undermining for years, to Frank Herold, who, although untried as yet. has pushed forward as the coming slugger of the world. One thing is in Herold' s favor. He is not over-confident. * 'I hardly expect to whip him," Herold said, "but 1 will do my best, and if 1 am whipped, why, I'll have to take it." Herold is a big man, temperate, strong and well built. His face, when he is in the ring, wears an earnest, intent look. He knows the answer to the question, "How to knock his man out," is to hit him on the jaw. He has got the blow down tine, and is more than anxious to deliver it. Then he faces his man courge ously and is ready to take the punishment and to return it with interest if he can. But is he a scientific fighter? Nobody can answer that disinterestedly so far as I can learn. Ed Mallahan, who is HIS SPONSOR, ' •*' - says he is, as have some of the editors of sporting papers, several of whom started a boom for him several months ago, insisting that he could whip Sullivan or any one in deed that might be fetched from anywhere. Sullivan weighs close to 240 pounds, is 29 years old, and five feet, eleven and three quarters inches in height. Herold is 24 years old, weighs about 180 pounds, and is something over half an inch shorter than the champion. This would indicate that they would stand on almost the same ground. Sullivan, when he was not as fat as he is now, looked like Hercules come to town again. - Then he weiehed 190 pounds, and the fifty pounds he has since gained have not been the hardest kind of muscle. There are three fat wrinkles on the back of his neck when he throws his head back, his belly is large and droopiug, and the true lines and play of his muscles are nearly hidden. Herold, on the other hand, is put together without regard to beauty, and one is not favorably impressed on first seeing him stripped. He is a big boned fellow and has no superfluous flesh. The Genesta Beaten. London, Aug. 15. — in the race for the' Cape May cup between the Irex and the Genesta, the latter of which won the cup in the United States last year, the Irex was victorious, arriving at Cowes at 1:10 p. m., at which time the Genesta had not been sighted. The start was made at 10 o'clock yesterday morning and the course was about 170 miles. THE START. Both yachts started .'with their whole mainsails square beaded and their gaff top sails and gib topsails set over the head sails. After passing the Needles the wind lightened and the yachts were becalmed for an hour in a heavy, rolling sea. When the wind freshened the Irex went ahead and in mid-channel was six miles in the lead. After that she did not see the Genesta again. The Irex sighted Cheerboueh break water at 2 a. in., having passed inside the breakwater. She passed by the east end at 3a. m. A brisk southwest wind was blowing and she made a quick return. The Genesta reached Cowes at 5 p. m. Small Talk. The simultaneous chess play Saturday evening at the Minnesota chess headquarters, 566 Broadway, was attended with success very gratifying to those interested. The playing progressed swiftly, all the games being finished within an hour and thirty minutes, the performer winning all but two. Next Thurs day night another general gathering will take place, when steps will be taken to inaugurate a local tournament for the championship and other prizes. This afternoon on the West Seventh street base ball grounds the home club and the Decatur men will play a game of base ball. The visitors are a strong team both at the bat and in the field and the chances are favorable to an interesting game. WANT ANNEXATION. . The Cut tins' Agitation Said to Be for the Purpose of jMakinsr Northern Mexico a Part of the United States. Special to the Globe. Austin, Tex., Oct. 15. — An official in Texas gives some decidedly sensational in side facts concerning the Mexican trouble. He said: The trouble has been kept alive almost en tirely by Qov. Trebino and Gen. j Naranjo. They, with a little group of wealthy followers, comprising not more than twenty men, have long wielded an almost irresistible influence in Tamaulipas, Coahuliak Nueva Leon and Chihuahua. Both the Gonzales and the Diaz administrations thought to hold this syndicate friendly, and to that end Trebino and Naranjo have in turn been made secretary of war in the Mexican cabinet. Each of the men, while holding this office managed to secure title to vast tracts of government lands in the North ern districts. So long as this land continues to be a part of and subject to all the uncer tainties of Mexican upheavals it is worth only from ten to fifteen cents per acre, while ad joining Texas land, that is not nearly so good, command? $2 to $4 per acre. .. If the southern boundary of the United States was changed from the Rio Grande the Sierre Madre moun tain, the appreciation in land would be worth from $10,000,000 to 820,000,000 to the little group of land owners. The gover nors of all these states hold their positions by the - grace of the men lam talking about. There is no doubt in my mind that that combination has its connec tions in all the United States. Gen. Naranjo has been at the North for some time, and only a short time ago made a tremendous sale of Mexican land to C. P. Huntington. The Cutting case was a fortunate accident for these men. It gave the United States a provo cation which it could not afford to overlook. If war were to come, the same men that ad vised the proceedings which provoked it will be active in an effort Induce the United States to annex Northern Mexico as one of the conditions of peace. In Praise of DaTOtt. Rochester, N.

A Terrible Trip Taken by a Dozan Peoplo in a Small Boat on the Ohio -— "- ■ j. * vl • They are All Stricken With Malarial lever and Their Graft Drifts Idly Down Stream- An Aged "Woman Dies Pleading for Water, and Her Hotting Body Found Among the Sick Fishermen Tow the Boat Ashore and Discover the Horrible Condi tion of its Occupants. A Terrible Trip. Special to the Globe. Evansville, Ind., Aug. 15.—Yester day Township Trustee Spresrel was notified that his services were wanted at the river. He was directed to a small family boat ly ing near the waterworks. The craft was a nondescript vessel, and bore evidences of hard usage. Its bow was staved in and nearly the entire roof blown off but, if the outside was uninviting, the inside was even more so. The cabin of the boat was about twenty feet long and twelve wide, and in this miserable cooped-up box were twelve persons, whose every appearance was an evidence of pinching and gaunt poverty. Hollow-eyed, emaciated and with scarcely a rag of covering, they lay upon the . bare, dark floor of the boat huddled together, and all con tending with that dreaded disease, malarial fever. In the midst of them lay the dead body of an aged women partially decom posed. Over this a piece of rag carpet had been thrown, the living occupants being too ill to remove the body. Trustee Spiegel at once sent for the patrol wagon and re moved the sufferers to the hospital, and an inquest was held over the dead, a verdict of death from malarial fever being render*.}. Mr. George Bush, one of the occupants &f the boat, was seen at the hospital. He was very ill, but able to give a clear narrative of the terrible aud SICKENING EXPEKIENCE to which they had been subjected. The story is beyond parallel, and was as follows: Until three weeks ago George and John Bush, brothers, were farmers in Meade county, Kentucky, about twelve miles from the mouth of Salt river. Their land was poor, and it was with difficulty that they obtained sufficient food to keep the wolf from the door. They finally became dis heartened and determined to try aud better their condition in the West. In the end they constructed a small boat, and on Sunday, July 26, both families, consisting of the brothers, their wives and nine children, thirteen in all — together with their little belongings, embarked in the boat and started on their terrible trip down the river. They reached the mouth of Salt river late Sunday night, and when Monday morning broke were in the Ohio. Two weeks ago Nancy Bush, aged 57, George's wife, was taken ill with malaria, and, be ing unable to procure necessary medicine, it soou developed into typhoid malaria. The other members mere stricken down one by one until finally all were helpless. In this condition they were overtaken on Thursday night by A HEAVY STORM, which tossed their craft about like an egg shell, throwing them from one end of the boat to the other. Their provisions were swept away by the waves, and the roof taken off. During this fearful night - Mrs. Bush suddenly grew worse and began plead ing feebly for water, which uo one could give her, and just as dawn broke she died in intense suffering and agony. " All day long Friday they drifted with the current, the hot sun beating cruelly down upon the little group of sufferers. The approach of darkness gave them some relief, but the over powering thirst and hunger nearly deprived them of all reason. Yesterday morning t hey had drifted nearly opposite the city when some fishermen saw the apparently tenantless boat and boarded it, discovering the condition of its occupants. They so cured their lines and ran the boat ashore, after which the authorities were notified. All the sick people were tenderly cared for to-night, but hopes are only entertained for six of them, the fatal and fetid at mosphere, tainted with the corpse, having had its effect upon the remainder. Mrs. Bush was buried last evening and the boat burned. AT CHAtTAUQIJA. Baccalaureate Sermon Preached to the Graduates of ISB6. Chatjtatjqua, N. V., Aug. 15. — George W.
