In spite of the disagreeable weather
yesterday afternoon the corner stone of
the new Dominican church, on the cor
ner of Twenty-fourth street and Eigh
teenth avenue south, was laid success
fully in the presence of several thousand
people. The hour for the ceremony
was set at 4 o'clock, but long before
that time the building and the
adjacent grounds were covered with
people, all anxious to witness the im
pressive ceremony. Every housetop in
the vicinity was covered with people,
and the streets were blocked with car-
nages. me various

Minneapolis assem

o'clock, and t h cl c
formed in line, with
Plummer Post Drum
corps in the lead. The
grand marshals were
J .P.Fitzgerald, .lamer
Sweeney and M. Bei
ry. These gentlemen
wore the handsome
regalia of the A. O. 11., and presented a
handsome appearance. The procession,
about 2,500 strong, started down Wash
ington avenue a few minutes after 3
o'clock, the American flag waving in the
breeze side by side with the Irish flag.
Twenty-fourth street was reached at
about 4 o'clock, and after with diffi
culty forcing a passage through the
dense crowd which surrounded the new
structure, the eigthteen societies repre
sented in the line marched up on the
platform, which is really the lirst floor
of the new building. Here the men
were formed in a hollow square, the
open end being at the southeast corner,
where the stone was to be laid. As
soon as the societies had been arranged,
the small platform just back of the
stone was cleared of people,
and Archbishop Ireland, Bishop
Grace, and the various priests of the
city, including the Dominican fathers,
filed on, followed by the acolytes of the
Holy Rosary church. As the party put
in an appearance a deep hush fell upon
the assembled multitude, and as Bishop
Grace began a prayer hats were taken
off and all the people on the platform
knelt. At the conclusion of this prayer,
Bishop Grace stepped forward, and.tak
ing a mason's trowel, made the sign of
the cross upon the heavy corner stone.
This stone was unornamented, except
for a small cross cut on the front of it,
facing Twenty-fourth street. The tin
box, containing a
history of THK rumen,
conies of the daily papers and the
Catholic papers, the names of those who
subscribed to the . building of the
church, the names of all the priests in
the city, the names of the city officials
and the governor of the state, together
with a few other articles, were placed
in the cavity under where the stone was
to rest. Felix Trainor now laid the
plaster around the stone. Bishop Grace
said a short prayer and slowly the
great stone was swung into position.
When it rested square and true on
the stone beneath and hid from
view the box containing the
church history, etc:, all on the
platform knelt, and the priests chanted
the litany of the saints. This. ended the
ceremonies. As soon as the chant was
concluded Archbishop Ireland, clad in
the handsome garment of his office, and
accompanied by Bishop Grace and all
the priests, ascended to a raised plat
form a few yards back, and began his
address. The oration was a grand one.
and was delivered in a masterly man
ner. Had the archbishop's voice not
been clear and his delivery good not over
100 could have heard the sermon. The
archbishop said:
"In creating this temple and laying
the corner stone of it the purpose is
that within its walls we may adore the
Supreme Creator, our Heavenly Father,
and render to Him the honor "which is
His due. Man is never so great as
when lie bows before his Maker in one
of His temples, and when he confesses
Christianity, and makes a resolve to
live a better and a purer life. But one
great trouble overshadows us. The
great evil of the present day is
that man forgets God and religion in his
business and loses sight of all things
holy in his mad pursuit for gold and
earthly honor. Men should ask them
selves more often, Whence conies this
beautiful world of ours? If they would
but open their eyes they would see that
God is at the bottom of all things. Kings
and princes are given great honor in
this world, but kings nor princes can
make worlds nor save souls. The man
who does not worship God remains
Itself, and will never be fitted to enter
heaven. God is our first and greatest
benefactor, and to him we should ren-'
der all homage and honor. The so
called savage races who really worship
God are far better than the civilized be
ings who know nothing except eating,
drinking and self-pleasure. In practic
ing religion man finds the dignity of his
highest hopes realized. Without God
above us we are mere creatures of fate,
who live but a day and never see heav
enly light. Take away Cod and we are
like so many wild beasts, preying
on one another and giving ourselves up
to the lusts of the earth. Men who talk
against God and religion are the deadli
est enemies of men and society. Take
away the church and give such men
control of the world, and it would be a
chaotic ruin, with darkness ami confu
sion everywhere. Lay not up treasures
here on earth, for of what use is wealth
unless a man uses it in helping others
and doing good? Verily, the poorest
man in the world "who believes
in God stands a better show of
going to heaven than does the rich
man who lends not a willing ear to the
appeals of the poor and wretched. I
beseech you all to be religious and to
bring up your children in the light of
the church. The religion in whose
name this corner stone has been laid is
an old one, having existed more than
I.mki years, and will always exist. The
Catholic religion teaches us that all
men are equal in the sight of God,
therefore cling close to your religion.
I am glad to see "new Catholic
churches erected, but they are
erected to no purpose unless
the members of them are made to lead
better and purer lives, and fitted to
enter the kingdom of heaven."
In closing his address the archbishop
exorted his hearers to be the best of
men and women and to lead pure and
holy lives, so that in the end they might
inherit the kingdom of heaven. Sing
ing by a choir of fity voices, under the
leadership of John McLaughlin, closed
the services. Many of the societies
marched back to Windom hall before
The Religious Bridge Seeks to
Close the Chasm in Society.
At the First Unitarian church yester
day morning Rev. H. M. Simmons
preached an interesting sermon on
"Bridges." He began by tracing the
history of them in Minneapolis. He
told of the early ford, and of the ferry,
which is said to have begun very ob
scurely in a canoe managed by a squaw
of rather desultory habits, and to have
become a regular institution in 1847. He
told of the first bridge, built in 1854, and
of the great celebration over it, Jan. 23,
1855. On that day the gratitude and en
thusiasm of the people found expres
sion in a dinner and a dance and more
than a dozen eloquent toasts and ad
dresses, very * interesting to read now.
One orator, "for instance, congratulated
the settlers here, because "you have
snatched the palm from the hand of St.
Paul," and he urged them to let the
world know it, and "use this event
aright, and give it the proper notor
iety;" for it seems that the modesty for
which Minneapolis has since become so
famous, was already here in germ, and
had to be exhorted to tell the
country of its merits. One toast was
to the bridge itself, which was the
first one on ' the whole length of the
river and closed with the words: "May
it stand as long as the waters of the
cataract chant the praises of the great
architect." . But alas! only two months I
after that orator prayed that the bridge
might be as enduring as the river
three-fourths of its roadway fell from
the cables in a storm one Sunday even
ing, and the people had again to get
across in any way they could. Trying
times those were for the settlers; and
the same page in the St. Anthony paper
which tells of the fall of the bridge
tells also of the St. Paul stage upsetting
the day before, and "breaking the legs
of one man in two peaces and the ribs
of another, cutting the head of a third
and injuring others," and the accident
is told very tersely without remark, as
if that was no more than what people
expected when they made the journey
to St. Paul. Nor were they much safer
at home; and the same page tells how a
citizen here had been horse-whipped by
another for a "mean business trans
action" three times within a week,
and the last time so that his life
was despaired of, and adds that "numer
ous persons" saw it without making
any effort to prevent. But the bridge
was mended, and the morals also to a
certain extent, and the change and the
various other bridges that have since
been built the preacher went on to
But he said this material bridge
building is symbolical of a spiritual
one, which more concerns the pulpit.
The ancient Roman priests were called
pontiffs— that is, bridge builders—and
after them Christian popes and others
have been called pontiffs. The clergy
ought all to be true to the old name,
and to be bridge builders of a better
kind. As the function of a bridge is to
unite divided districts in closer rela
tion, so the best function of religion is
to unite men and sects and nations in
closer brotherhood. True religion will
seek first of all to bridge the chasms in
society and join men of all faiths —
Christian, Jews, heretics and heathen —
in bonds of peace and love. In il
lustration of this universal religion the
preacher made various quotations from
Pope, whose 200 th birthday is this week
and who is worthy of centennial honor.
He also showed how a bridge is sym
bolic of many other religious truths, as,
for instance, of faith. One can not
stand below and look upward at our
beautiful suspension bridge, traced like
lace work against tha sky, with its im
mense weight swinging on mere threads
of metal, and with its hundreds of walk
ers and wagons crossing to and fro so
fearlessly, with the river rushing be
neath, without feeling that it is as true
a symbol of faith as any cathedral or
catechism that ever was made.
Rev. C.' F. Thwing Says It is the
Measure of Responsibility.
Rev. Charles F. Thwing took for the
subject of his baccalaureate sermon, de
livered before the Minneapolis academy,

; Text— lf I had not come and spoken
unto them, they had not had sin, but
now they have no cloak for their sin. —
John xv : 22*
So far as we have the opportunity of
shaping our lives, so far we are respon
sible for their forms. Our lives are in
fluenced by circumstances: but we have
the opportunity of making circum
stances. If we make these circum
stances evil, we are responsible for the
sin which results. If the blind man
who reads through his fingers adopt
work which makes his hands as hard as
horn, he is to be blamed for doing what
he thus knows must put a cataract on
the eye of his hand. If we enter into
surroundings and conditions which are
bad, we are responsible for the badness
which we thus make a part of ourselves.
If we remain in surroundings and con
ditions which are bad, and see that the
door is open leading to surroundings
and conditions which are pure, we are
responsible for the consequent corrup
tion. Our lives are to be shaped by mo
tives. They are the moulds which press
our lives into some form. They are the
locomotives which draw them from the
age of ten to the age of seventy. To
make these motives high and noble or
low and base, we have the opportunity.
1 care not what is your condition; 1 care
not what is your past; I care not what
are your associations; your motives,
you can make them what you will.
Yours is the opportunity in the labora
tory of your own heart, to transform
them into noblest and grandest princi
ples, aiming for truth, for duty, lor
God; or to transform them into meanest
and ignoble principles, based on error,
and ease and sin. Here you are master;
here you are sole regent; here you are
absolute monarch. And, therefore, you
are responsible for your motives; and,
therefore, you are responsible for your
life, so far as it is shaped by motives.
The acceptance or the rejection of
Christ is a great principle in the shap
ing of life. 1 shall not paint before you
that the rejection of Christ as a per
sonal helper tends to make life barren
as the desert, cold as the pole, selfish as
death, narrow as it is base, and base as
the basest appetites. I shall not paint
before you that the acceptance of Christ
as a personal helper tends to make life
rich as the tropics, generous as the
sunshine, broad as the earth, high
as the heavens, strong as love.
I shall not paint before you the life
in which Christ rules as sovereign su
preme. 1 might compare it to the sun,
for it is warm and strong; but the sun
knows its eclipses. 1 might compare it
to the stars, for it tells of hope; but the
stars fade in the daylight sky. I might
compare it to the magnificence of human
governments, for it is glorious; but
states rise and fall. I will compare it
to eternity, for it is eternal. I will com
pare it with heaven, for it is heavenly.
1 will compare it— think not the simili
tude is irreverant— to God, lor it is God
To enter into such a life is our oppor
tunity. For entering or not entering,
we are therefore responsible. There
fore, for the shaping of our lives, so far
as we can shape them, we are responsi
ble. Therefore, opportunity is the
measure of responsibility. "If I had
not come and spoken unto them, they
had not had sin, but now they have no
cloak for their sin."
Right Thinking Men Should La
bor Together With God.
Rev. David James Burrell yesterday,
at Westminster church, spoke upon the
subject of the "Dispensation of the
Spirit," taking his text from John xvi.,
7-11: "And when the Holy Ghost is
come He shall convince the world of
sin of righteousness and of judgment;
of sin because they believe not on me,
of righteousness because Igo unto the
Father, of judgment because the prince
of this world is judged."
No doubt it was pleasant for the dis
ciples to know Jesus in the flesh, but it
was "expedient that he should go away '
in order that the dispensation of the
Spirit might begin. The work of the
Spirit was to consummate the purpose
of redemption, to conquer the world and
lay it captive at the feet of God. To
this end there must be, to begin with,
a correction of prevailing ideas as to
spiritual things.
The spirit reproves the world of sin,
i. c., rectifies its conception of sin. We
think of sin, ordinarily, as it appears
in its outward forms of crime and im
morality. But these are merely symp-
Toms, eruptions. The malady lies
deeper. By the Divine Spirit we are
taught that sin is aversion to God, and
that the head and front of its offending
is the rejection of Christ; as is written,
"Because they believe not in Me."
This is the sum and substance of all in
iquity, the one "unpardonable sin."
The spirit reproves the world of
righteousness. Here again the common
opinion— to wit, that righteousness is
an outward fair-seeming or morality—
utterly at fault. All such righteousness
is "filthy rags" in the divine sight.
The spirit rectifies this misconception
by pointing to Christ glorified, who is
"our righteousness." By His death we
are justified, and by the imputation of
His resplendent goodness we are clothed
in white for the review at the great
The Spirit reproves of 'judgment: not
of the final judgment, but of that which
is occurring here now. The world is a
vast Esdraelon where truth and error,
right and wrong, God and satan contend
for the master. All men are enlisted on
one side or the other. "Multitudes,
multitudes in the Valley of Decision."
It is God's will that we should know
the issue of this controversy. To this
end the spirit comes and says, "All's
going right:" He bids us pluck up
courage because the prince of this
world is being overcome. God is might
ier than satan. He is binding him with
a chain and will ultimately cast him in
a bottomless pit.
In this dispensation of the spirit all
things are working together for good
All right-thinking men should be en
listed that they may be taborers to
gether with God.
C. M. Palmer to Succeed Blethen
— The Latter's Declaration.
The formal announcements were made
yesterday of the dissolution of the
Blethen-Haskell amalgamation in the
newspaper business. Mr. Blethen makes
his little speech, tells of his loyalty and
devotion to Minneapolis and the prin
ciples of the Republican party, and
withdraws. Manager Haskell then takes
up the strain and tells what he is going
to do and what he has done, the latter
announcing that he has taken in
C. M. Palmer, of the Exposition,
to fill Mr. Blethen's shoes. Haskell
will control the news and
editorial department of the thoroughly
aggressive Tribune, and Palmer will do
the skirmishing on the business end. It
had become pretry well known that Mr.
Palmer was to go on the paper, but in
what actual capacity was a matter of
The only point of interest in con
junction with the affair is Mr. Blethen's
positive stand on Republicanism. For
some past he has been skirmishing for
funds for a morning Democratic daily,
and this pronunciamiento looks as
though he had given it up. His asso
ciation with Democrats and hobnobbing
with politicians goes for naught in the
face of such a declaration.
Prof. Gleason Has Great Success
"With Vicious Equines.
About 1,800 people were present last
evening at the Washington rink to wit
ness the beginning of Poof. 0. R. Glea
son's engagement, which is to continue
during the week. He certainly is en
titled to the name of "horse tamer," for
with the aid of a few simple straps he
succeeded in subduing eight or ten
vicious brutes in just about as many
minutes. The owners of the horses
operated upon naturally objected to
having their names mentioned, pre
sumably because it might spoil a
"trade," and the professor good na
turedly agreed that he would not exact
such a requirement. A brown mare
was then brought into the ring. Her
owner, who stood next to a Globe re
porter, remarked: "If he tames her
he's a dandy. She's afraid of any
thing and everything. 1 have owned
her four years and have never
been able to drive her single,
and I rather think 1 am something of a
horseman myself." In a few minutes
the owner or this interesting steed, and
the audience as well, were astonished to
see her reduced to submission. She
kicked, balked and plunged at first,but.
after being tripped up a few times and.
spoken to in a commanding way, she
followed the professor like a dog.
"Billy," a horse owned by a well
known livery stable keeper on First
avenue south, was next taken in
hand. He had always refused to work
to harness, but after a few minutes of
acquaintance with the professor seemed
to be actually anxious to do anything
wanted of him. A three-year old colt
which had never before been hitched
up was next introduced. He reared
and snorted a few minutes and then
was driven around the ring a dozen
times in a light driving wagon. Several
vicious kickers and runaway steeds
were brought out, allowed to kick un
til they were tired, and then obeyed the
professor's voice as soon as they were
taught to comprehend its meaning. The
entertainment was not only exerting,
but was a refined one, and the several
hundred ladies present constituted the
most enthusiastic portion of the large
audience present. Any tendency to
boisterous conduct was instantly
checked, and the only individual who
manifested a disposition to become ob
streperous was promptly ejected. There
is no doubt that the rink will be packed
to-night, and during the entire engage
ment, for that matter. Some twenty
horse owners last night offered as many
obstinate animals for subjection.
He Makes an Address Upon His
War Recollections.
The address ot Gen. R. W. Johnson
at St. Paul upon "War Memories," at
the People's theater yesterday after
noon, attracted a rather light audience.
The general spoke from manuscript,
and his delivery was rather monotonous.
He advocated the using of the surplus
in the United States treasury for the
benefit of the veterans of the war of the
rebellion, his remarks being based upon
statistics which showed he had made
considerable inquiry concerning the
subject. He dwelt considerably upon
his personal reminiscences of the war,
and gave a thrilling account of the bat
tle of Murfreesboro. His most happy
hit was a sarcastic allusion to the re
ported admission of Gen. Joseph E.
Johnston to membership in the G. A. R.
For a Soldiers' Monument.
A large number of old soldiers met at
Levi Butler post hall Saturday evening
to discuss the plan of having a soldiers'
monument erected here. E. W. Morti
mer, the chairman, stated that it
would cost from $4,000 to §5,000
to place such a monument as
was desired in Prospect park.
Speeches upon the subject were made
by Commander-in-Chief Rea, Depart
ment Commander Ege, Mayor Ames,
Capt. Snider, Capt. Babb, Rev. Mr.
Field, Capt. Hunt and others. All
thought that a monument was needed,
but some said that in their opinion sev
eral small monuments would be better
than one large one. The following com
mittee was appointed to take charge of
the matter: R. Pratt, R. H. Bratton and
C. McDonald, from Butler Post, and I.

The Only Line That Does It.
The only line running complete vesti
bule trains, sleeping cars, coaches, din
ing cars and baggage cars, between
Minneapolis, St. Paul and Chicago is
"The Northwestern Line," Chicago, St.
Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha railway.
It was the first line in the Northwest
to run Pullman sleeping cars.
It was the first line in the Northwest
to run dining cars.
.It was the first line in the Northwest
to run vestibule cars, and, as stated
above, "The Northwestern Line" is to
day the only line running complete ves
tibuled trains between the Twin Cities
and Chicago.
This line is always in advance of its
competitors both as to equipment and
train service, and its motto, "Always on

To Be Launched as a Vice-Presidential
Bnt His Friends Say They Are Running
It and Will Establish Headquarters
at St. Louis.
Does he mean it?
Is Mayor Ames, of Minneapolis, a se
rious candidate for the Democratic nom
ination for vice president of the United
States? r 'i
In all of the much that has been writ
ten of the possible candidacy of Mayor
Ames for the nomination for the second
great place within the gift Of
the people of the United States,
tere has been serious argument on
one side and good-humored jest ou the
other. So far as known Ames has
never said he was or would be a candi
date for the office, but his ambition is
known to be boundless, and he and his
friends have come to look upon him as
a lusty child of destiny. When he was
elected a delegate to St. Louis a Globe
reporter asked his choice for vice presi
dent, and he laughingly answered:
"For vice president? Why, let me
see. Yes; Grover Cleveland, of course.
"And who for president?"
He has always laughed himself when
asked about this matter, and others
have naturally followed him in a smile,
but for all that it is the firm belief in
Minneapolis that something is behind it
all. It need surprise no one if the gentle
doctor blossoms out at St. Louis with a
f ullfledeed candidacy, with headquarters
and literary bureau complete. In the
absence of any positive statement from
him the matter might me treated as a
joke were it not for the fact that a
movement is certainly on foot in Min
neapolis and in certain other points
about the state working up a boom for
him. A Democrat, who is known to be
friendly to him, said yesterday:
"Never mind what you may hear, but
put it down as an absolute certainty
that when the proper time comes, Ames
will be sprung on the convention at St.
Louis. There are certain questions I
may not answer, but fire away on any
thing you want to know."
"Who is doing this?" H
"1 will only partially answer that. It
is being done by friends of the doctor,
who believe he can be nominated, and
not only be elected, but assist in the
certainty of Cleveland's election."
"Where does Ames stand in this?"
"He stands about this way. Like
every other citizen of the United States,
he would like to hold this high office.
Who wouldn't But he is doing nothing
for it. If things look his way when the
time comes, he will enter into an active
canvass, of course, and do as other can
didates do under the circumstances.
Mind, I am saying this on my own re
sponsibility, and not with the sanction
of Ames or anybody else. lam giving
you my own views and knowledge."
"Yes; well, what do you mean by
Ames' assisting Cleveland?"
"1 mean that Ames will insure cer
tain states to Cleveland no other pros
pective vice-presidential candidate can.
I believe Cleveland and Ames can carry
Minnesota and Wisconsin and add these
to the states Cleveland is already sure
of. We mean business in this, and you
can treat it any way you've a mind to."-
Yesterday evening Dr. Ames was
found and was asked, plumply, the"
"Are you a candidate for the vice-,

and then said:
"I am a candidate for nothing under
the broad heaven, from the presidency!

"Would you take it if you could get
it?" :,:.. • ,
"I would not like to accept what has.
not been offered me." 7g\
"Will you make any effort to secure:
it?" ;
"Not that I know of now. I have ar
ranged no plan of any such thing."
"Would you like to have it?"
"Well, 1 suppose that is an honor
such as no man would refuse. It is not
immodest to say 1 or any man would be
proud of such an honor."
He woie a quizzical smile, and that
was positively all that could be obtained
from him. But putting everything to
gether, it may be set down as almost
certain that an organized effort will be
made in behalf of the Minneapolis
mayor, and that an Ames headquarters
will be opened at St. Louis. Ames'
friends say he is doing nothing with the
Minnesota delegation, and will make no
light in any connection with it. It is
also said in Minneapolis that a move
ment is on foot looking to the election of
C. D. O'Brien as a member of the
national committee.
E. H. Moulton— The taxpayers should
make it their duty to see that none but
property owners are nominated for al
dermen at the coming city convention.
The reason why the city expenses are
so rapidly increasing is because the
council is largely composed of men who
pay no taxes.
Capt. Sam P. Snider— l must admit
that the young men in this county have
never had their proper share of the
offices, but it has been their own fault,
for they have been in the majority for
years. But although a large majority
of the Republican party is under the
age of thirty-five years, they should re
member that it is only by uniting with
the older members that the Republican
ticket can be elected.
Henry Downs— election of Frank
Davis to the Chicago convention will
cost the Republican party next fall just
$7,000. It is all right now for the young
men to say, "We are in the majority
and we intend to have our share of the
offices," but when election time comes,
who is going to furnish the money for
campaign expenses?
Capt. Ben P. Shuler— The young men
have done a very foolish thing in send
ing a young, inexperienced fellow like
Frank Davis down to Chicago. Why,
the chairman of the Minnesota delega
tion should have been some one with a
national reputation. Its all right to
elect young men to the county offices,
but when it comes to state and national
politics they should be relegated to the
Albert M. Scott— l am just waiting to
see whether Capt. Te.rrill is going to be •
able to make the riffle for the office of
clerk of court. I believe he will pull
out of the race before the county con
vention meets, and if he does why. then
I will come out as a candidate. There
has been dozens of young men who
always take an active part in the cam
paigns who have urged me to run, but
I hesitate about fighting the captain.
Freeman P. Lane— Fletcher
has some queer notions about politics.
Now, if a man is working in his inter
est, he suspects him of trying to do him
up in some underhanded manner, but
if he is against him, why then he is a
fine fellow and nothing is too good for
him. It makes me laugh when I hear a
man say that he never goes back on a
friend. Why he will never do anything
for you, unless you fight him.
James C. Worrall— l understand that
Bobby Evans claims to be the man who
first mentioned Frank Davis as a candi
date to the Chicago convention, and
that he also claims the credit of en
gineering his election at the state con
vention. . Now, I don't know who it was
that first trotted Frank out as a candi
through Bob Evans at the convention
that Frank got there. The man who is
entitled to the credit for that work is
Doc Hedderly.
Fine Entertainment Promised.
The entertainment to be given this
evening under the auspices of the
Minneapolis Press club will un
doubtedly attract a large audience.
The contributors to the programme
include the best musical and dramatic
talent in the city. Sol Smith
Russell, the great comedian, appears
in character sketches. President
Northrop. of the state university,
makes an address, and the Carroll-Man
dolin Zither and Banjo clubs contribute
numbers. The Can full orchestra is
also down for two selections, besides
furnishing an accompaniment to A. W.
Porter. Altogether, the programme is
certainly the most attractive ever offered
for an entertainment in the city. The
sale of seats has been large, and a
crowded house is already assured.
"Lost In London," which made such
a popular hit at the People's, was re
repeated last evening to a crowded
house, and the production of "Our
Boys" occurs to-night, which is to run
until Wednesday evening, when "Hazel
KTrke" is to be given upon the occa
sion of the benefit to Wallace D. Shaw.
: Turner hall last evening was well
filled upon the occasion of the benefit
to A. E. Kindervater, the gymnastic in
structor of the West Side Turner society.
A very interesting gymnastic entertain
ment was given, the Danz orchestra con
tributing several musical selections.
; There has been an unusual demand
for seats at the Grand Saturday, for
Mrs. Brown Potter's engagement. It
looks now as if this fair society amateur
would play to large business. It's
proper you know, to sustain soci
ety favorites and our society is
just intending to turn out in force to
see her. Several theater parties have
been organized. Mrs. Potter will ap
pear Tuesday in the "Lady of Lyons,"
and Wednesday in "Romeo and Juliet."
Kyrle Bellew and a choice company are
in support.
Hicks & Sawyer's gigantic colored
minstrels will fill the last three nights
at the Grand. The company is far
more pleasing in programme and
stronger in talent than the more pre
tentious white organizations. Manager
Hicks claims to have the banner com
pany on the road. A street parade will
be given every day. .•
Smiley Walker,* business manager of
Annie Pixley, is expected in town to
day to arrange for the appearance of
his star at the Grand next week.

She Rescued Him.
Frank Bayard was a young American
of good family who went to Hermo
sillo in New Mexico to superintend the
Santa Rita gold mine. It was while liv
ing here that he fell in love with a beau
tiiul Spanish girl, Donna Francesca
Fonseca, the daughter of the alcade, or
local justice of the peace.
Donna Francesca could handle a gun
as well as any hunter in the neighbor
hood, and from a line of sturdy Spanish
ancestors she inherited a brave spirit
and indomitable courage. The young
couple were betrothed, and it was set
tled that they should be married early
in September.
One day a boy who worked for Mr.
Bayard rode up in great haste to the
ranch of Don Fonseca and informed
him that a band of robbers, under the
redoubtable Jaquin Alvaros, had robbed
the office of the mine and carried Frank
Bayard away a prisoner.
Donna Francesca did not weep and
wring her hands when she heard the
news. She slipped up to her room, cut
off her beautiful hair, and putting on a
boy's suit, mounted a fleet horse and
galloped away in pursuit of the bandits.
For several days she continued her
march to the mountains, hardly stopping
for food. On the noon of the third day
she was delighted to see the
smoke rising from a fire in the bandit's
camp. Crawling toward the opening
her joy increased as she saw her lover
wandering unharmed about the camp,
but evidently under guard. That night
through the rocky gateway the brave
girl crept until she found herself at her
lover's side.
"Sh! 'Tis I— Francesca! Follow me
but make no noise," and she thrust a re
volver into his hands.
Back to the gateway with infinite care
and caution ; past the sentry into the
cleft; then on their feet; one long, lov
ing embrace, and then onward up the
trail she was leading him.
The horses reached, they saddled and
started, Francesca going first; and as
they rode she told him how she had
come after him.
It was nearly 10 o'clock, when, as they
were climbing up the side of a mountain,
after having crossed a small valley,
they heard some shots behind them, and,
pausing, saw the bandits, some twenty
in number, descending the trail they
had gone over two hours before. Fran
cesca laughed.
"I know a place about three miles
from here," she said: "we could hold
out for a week against an army. Come,
let's hurry on."
A turn of the road, as they wound
round the highest part of the mountain
trail, and she reined her hoise in. It
was a natural fort. On one side the
. rock went up straight for nearly a
> : hundred feet, while on the other the
i precipice went down sheer. The^ shelf
I upon which the trail ran was not more
I than six feet high.
1 " "Let us camp here and wait for
Tying the horses behind in a little
; .bay-like opening in the side of the
' mountain, while Frank Bayard built a
wall of loose stones, some five or six
feet high, Donna Francesca got the sad
dlebags, and from them produced an
t abundance of food. The two took their
breakfast leisurely, talking and laugh
: -ing the while.
. . But this pleasant time was inter
-1 Erupted by the tramp of horses, and a
; •man appeared round the corner.
I i "Senor," said Frank, "l Lave escaped.
as you know. I advise you to go back. I
am well armed, and if you advance it
will be death."
The bandit paused, then speaking to
the men behind him, he turned his horse
round and disappeared. In a few min
utes, however, he came back with three
or four more. There was a clear space
of some thirty feet they had to cross be
fore reaching the wall.
i "Senors," said Frank again, "I warn
The reply was an oath, followed by a
rush. Crack! crack! crack! went the
repeating rifles, and only two men
reached the wall. One Frank struck
with his fist and knocked him out to
the edge of the cliff, where he made a
desperate attempt to recover himself,'
failed, and fell with a yell. The other
the girl shot. :,I&gg
In that narrow space, an I among that
compact body of men, it was impossible
to miss. The attacking party wavered,
one turned, and then another, while the
ledge was strewn with dead and
wounded men. - 'SBBgsffttBB&SP&BB&P
Suddenly Francesca heard a horse be- ,
hind them and turned pale. . •".
"If these are more of those bandits," *
she said fiercely, "I must not fall alive
into their hands."
And Frank promised with a look.
In intense aniety they waited for five
or six minutes, which seemed an age,
and then around a turn in the trail they
saw Don Ramon coming.
For the first time Francesca gave way
and fainted.
The only Mexican lady with short
hair I ever saw in my life" was Senora
Francesca Bayard, for her husband
would never allow her to grow it long
He used to say, as they told the story
in their pleasant home, that, beautiful
as it had been in his eyes before it was
cut, it was more beautiful now.
