Cream City.
A free-for-all race, which will create
great interest at Minneapolis, was last
night arranged to occur within the next
ten days, probably Wednesday, after
noon, Feb. 27. It will be a free-for-all,
and is open to any horse, trotter or
pacer, owned in Minneapolis, the en
trance fee being $100. The arrange
ments were made last evening -by a
number of prominent horse-owners who
are members of the Minnesota Driving
Park association, which met at 304
Nicollet avenue, and the following
horses were entered: - Gem, pacer;
record, 2:13". : William Ctrotter, 2:22%;
Pat Bruen. pacer, 2:2i,'4; Big Ike,
trotter, $:27&; Major Linn, trotter,2:24;
Lady Woodside, 2:30. The money, $000,
is to* be divided into three purses, GO, 25
and 15 per cent. The course is to be
half a mile on Lake of the Isles, best
three heats in five. Another race to
take place the first week in March for
$100 a side was also arranged between
Big Ike and Major Linn.
The, | Owner of Proctor Knott
Strikes a Pool Room.
Louisville, Feb. 23.— Sam Bryant
lias returned from Nashville a badly
disgusted individual. He visited the
Rock City ostensibly for the purpose of
looking at the Belle Meade yearlings,
but in reality to place $500 or more on
his equine god, . Proctor Knott, in the
Two- ■; Thousand stakes, to be run
there next May. He did visit Belle
Meade,: but of course saw nothing
there he wanted for the reason that he
wanted notning. Then, in a careless
sort of way, lie sauntered into Palmer &
CartwrighPs no I room, and, running
his eye. over the blackboard, saw 3 to 1
quoted against Proctor Knott. That
suited him pretty well, and, not to dis
close his hand, he asKed in an indiffer
ent sort of 'way how much they would
take against "that boss at 3 to 1." He
was,^prepared to ■ have the bookies
limit' him to $300 "or $400, but when they
informed him that the maximum bet
they would: take was $50 he almost ex
ploded wrath.
"What! Let you fellers know whether
I'm' going to start my boss for a paltry
$150. No; I'll see you d— first," and
the red-faced Kentuckian stalked out of
the room.
The next train that left Nashville
found Sam "Bryant on it with a ticket
for Louisville.. There is not the least
doubt here that he intends starting the
Futurity winner in the above stake. He
has made up his mind to this fact,
and when Bryant makes up his
mind Jupiter couldn't swerve him.
Bryant now says it was not the.
Dwyers who made him an offer for
Proctor Knott recently; that the only
bid he ever received from the Brooklyn
turfmen was one of $30,000 at Sheeps
head Bay. three days before the Futur
ity was run. Another, a bookmaker,
offered him $30,000 simply for the run
ning qualities of the horse on Futurity
Mr. Baldwin to Confine Himself to
a Small But Select String.
San Francisco, Feb. 23.— 1n the var
ious places where horsemen most do
congregate the question is asked almost
every day, "What horses will Lucky
Baldwin take East this year?" Mr.
Baldwin has had such remarkable good'
fortune in former years with his racing
stable that naturally more than a pass
ing interest is manifested by those who
Incline to the royal sport. Rumors of
various kinds have been floating around
for several .'months as to Mr.
Baldwin's intentions. Among oth
ers, one .to", the effect that the
•Santa Anita stable's colors would
not be seen on the Eastern courses this
season, but that instead, Mr. Baldwin
would only race Tin California. That
gentleman assured Grim, the accom
plished writer of The Breeder and
Sportsman, that he will take a small,
but highly, selected lot to do battle on
the Eastern turf. Most of the two-year
olds will be. tried here prior to ship
ment, and any not showing the highest
possible form will be left behind and
entered for California events. It may
possibly occur that after the pick of the
stable is forwarded, some one or more
of the cast oil's may show up in proper
stake form, and in that event they will
be sent on to "join the Eastern contin
gent. Mr. Baldwin has determined, how
ever, to cut down the expenses as low
as can be, without detriment to tho
stable,, and as it will be under his per
sonal supervision he will be enabled to
judge from time to time what changes,
if any, are necessary, instead of Mr.
Roberts, who was the trainer last year,
Robert Campbell will be the first in
command, and as Bob has been for sev
eral.years connected with the stable no
better man could have been chosen.
The young jockey, Graham West, will
have the premier mount, with Isaac
Murphy as heavy-weight, but the latter
is not regularly engaged, as he was last
year, but will be paid" for winning and
losing mounts, tbe same as any other
disengaged jockey.
What the Turf Men Are Engaged
in at Present.
From the South comes the informa
tion that J. J. Carter's coltKasson is de
veloping into a sure enough race horse,
and from the same country is obtained
the opinion that Spokane has already
shown form which makes him a formid
able rival for the best of them. Then,
too, it is authentically known that Col.
J. W. Guest's Heron is training
right along, and has shown im
provement that puts him on the "list
of the most . prominent ones. One
Derby candidate that is little heard of
is The Lioness, but it is quietly reported
that she has recovered; from 'her hard
campaign of last season, and now ex
hibits quality enough to repeat her per
formance of last spring, when, with
equal weights, she' * outstayed aud out
footed Knott, and gave him asound beat
ing for the Runiiymede stakes at Louis
ville, oyer the extreme limit of distance
for two-year-ohls at that season. - Those
who have watched tho movements
of the ; :'■ Derby ; ; animals ' that have
been*-' engaged in "winter racing have
so far been disappointed, for, while
of those that have been started three
have been winners, the mediocrity of
their perform pretty well bars
them from any real prominence for the
"Blue Ribbon" event. These winners
are P. M. West's Rollin Hawley, he
having won twice, the Beverwyek sta
ble's Lamont and W. O. Sculley's Mac
cauley. Lamont has already been de
clared out. It is about these and some
few of the others that- the tongues of
sportsmen wag now; when 'the business
of backing the sprinters at the : New
Jersey and New Orleans merry-go
rounds grows tiresome.
The Great Ten-Mile Skating Race
■ This Afternoon. y ; >
The ten-mile skating contest for the
championship of America and $200* a
side, between Axel Paulsen, champion
skater of the world, and Fritz" Luhr, of
Christiania, Norway, will occur at the
ball park, West St. Paul, this afternoon.
Paulsen's record is too well known,
to need any -repetition, while: Luhr
is a comparative stranger on: this side
of the water, though well known in
Norway. His only race in this country
was in January, he won the five
mile championship of the : Northwest
with ease at St. Paul. He is fully six
feet iv height, and ' has every ; appear
ance of an athlete. The track has been
accurately surveyed, and the time will
no doubt' go on record, as the knowing
ones who are posted predict that Luhr
will' . make :. Paulsen -. break- the rec
ord, if he succeeds in : winning.
The record now- is 30.37. -1-5 seconds.
Six thousand people attended the last
race between Paulsen and Goetz, and if
the weather moderate a little, probably
one of the largest crowds of the season
will be in attendance . to-day. Paulsen
beat the record for ten 1 miles at Minne
apolis Jan. 27, in his twenty-mile race
with Goetz, covering" the first ten j miles
in thirty-three minutes, but it does not
constitute a record ; at that distance.
The ice , is in splendid condition, and
the track measures six laps to
the - mile. Experienced judgas and
scorers will bo appointed, who
will keep an accurate record of all the
details.. The -balance of > the money
necessary to make up the stakes will be
deposited with C. E. , Maxfield at 2
o'clock. Should Paulsen win an effort
will be made to get Joe Donoghue, the
very fast skater of Newbury, N. V.,
who defeated the crack skaters of Eu
rope this winter, to come here and race
Paulsen a five or ten* mile race. James
Collins, of Milwaukee, the ■ fastest one
quarter mile runner, in America, will
attempt to heat Paulsen One-quarter .of
a mile just before; the big race, for a
purse of $100, given .- by ; . the.,manage
ment. Special trains ' will . leave : the
foot of Jackson street at • 2:30 p. m*. for
the park. The race wilt. commence at 3
p. m. sharp, and wilt come off no matter
what is the condition of the weather.
Have a Little Chat at Dinner in
Milwaukee. .
Milwaukee, Wis., : Feb. 23.—A.notabl
e quartet took dinner at the Plankiriton
house yesterday. :li consisted of Billy
Myer, Jack McAuliffe, Alf Kennedy and
Billy Madden. It was the first time the
members of the grouphad met since the
contest in Indiana. The meeting was
accidental. McAuliffe and Madden were
en route to Beaver Dam to fill a sparring
engagement, whilp'Myer and Kennedy,
were in Milwaukee for the same pur
pose, Myer sparring last evening at the
Peoples theater With' Austin, a Chicago
light-weight. After; dinner, in an in
formal way, the four discussed the
prospects for a' fight ;in the "future.
That it could not take [place at once was
admitted by. Kennedy, and Myer as soon
as they put their eyes 'on McAuliffe's
bulky form, i Mas is .even heaver than
when here last . week. .-;■ Kennedy in
formed Madden that Myer desired to
fight it out in } a- private room with not
more than a dozen popple present.- He
said their money ..was. .tip and they did
not want to take it down. The proposi
tions were well. : received, but Madden
and McAuliffe wished the. .fight to take •
place within a short, distance of New
York or in San Francisco. No agree
ment was arrived at, and Mac and his
partner left on the afternoon train for
Beaver Dam. Kennedy said afterward:
"Billy - doesn't like to go far away.
Had there '* been - any trouble at
the receut meeting, or had Mac
and his party -•; been abused or
worried, we would not say a word about
going anywhere else. But they admit
they had the best kind , of treatment,
and 1 can't see why they are unwilling
to have the right out here. I know of
twenty-live: men - who will- put : .up $100
each to see the fight. That would give
$7,500 to the winner, and that is enough,
'there is too much risk in handling a
big crowd. Then a small party can get
away quietly and the battle bo fought
out to a finish before any outsiders
know it is taking place."
• Myer, who is stHl in training, said
about his next meeting with McAuliffe:
" If I meet Mac again it will be in pri
vate. 1 have fought my last fight in
public." . -JgW*J
" What brought you to this decision?"
- "Well, 1 in. big crowd people are
liable to get excited and murder may
follow. 1 think it much better for the
men to meet with four or five friends
each and fight: it out. That's the way I
shall fight in the future."
Myer has had an offer to travel with
McNish's minstrels, but did not accept,
as ; it would carry him too far from
home. '
When his attention was called to
Richard K. Fox's statement that be
would not have been entitled to the
championship .belt even if he; had won
the fight, he said, brusquely: "Give me
the money and ho can keep the belt.
My friends could give me a belt ! if I
needed one. Fox. gave Kilrain a belt
and cailed him a champion, but teat
doesn't make him one a long way,"

Berlin, Feb. 23.— Diplomatic and
ministerial dinners are now the order of
] the day,* eagerly 'discussed as af
fording indications ot personal and in-;,
ternational relations. Prince. Bismarck
yesterday gave a dinner to the mem
bers of the lower house of the Prussian
diet, and during the serving ' of ccoffe r
complained of the heavy labors created
, for . him by what he termed the "so
called colonies.". He ascribed the blame
for no small portion of his difficulties to
the action of colonial officials, who, he
said, frequently acted without a req
uisite knowledge of circumstances,
and especially .d-d. hot know how. to
. treat natives. ;it was impossible, the;
chancellor said, to allow trivial disputes
to introduce any discordant '."element in
Germany's; relations with the great
friendly powers, as the slightest dis
turbance of the harmony prevailing
between the imperial government and
foreign states might have most preju
dicial effects, tiobn; German commercial
and i business "relations. Bismarck ; is
said to have been . greatly annoyed; at
the consul's proposals to annex Samoa,
and the Vossische Zeitutig's question as
to what 'would be thought of a consul
who telegraphed, a proposal to annex.
Zurich or Luxembourg is believed to be
identical with the opinion of the chan
cellor. In explanation of the reported
ordering 'of a - German squadron to
Samoa, the National Zeitung observes
that j the impending - punishment of
Mataafa will have no effect upon Ger
many's relations with . England and
America, the right of Germany to inter
vene in the matter not being contested.
in any quarter. . The report must, how
ever, "be received, with reserve. The
squadron is provisioned for Port Said,
in order," probably,' to be-in readiness to.
proceed to East Africa or to await the
development of affairs) It may at least
be assumed that the squadron will only
go to Samoa in the event of the Ameri
can government proving exacting or

suit in the accession, to- power of Gen.
Boulauger is well known,: and there are > (
few persons who .do -not regard his,,
triumph as a near probability. The
dinner of the French embassy has.-been
fixed for April 6. It is stated that both "
the emperor and empress will be among i
the guests. All the ministers and chiefs \
of the military and civil cabinets have
beeu invited to be present at the din
ner to be given by Prince Bismarck on"
Monday to the emperor. The event is
much commented on. as intended to dis
pel the idea that a divergence of views
exists between the emperor and the
chancellor. The rumor that Prince
Bismarck has advised the : emperor to
replace Count yon Waldersee as aide
de-camp by another officer is declared
to be entirely without foundation. The
emperor is far from being free from
' painful ear-aches. The recent changes
:iu the weather have given bim much
trouble. He is obliged sometimes
in order to obtain a few. hours of sleep.
This makes no difference, however, in
his activity. He will honor by his pres
ence Count yon Schellendorf's farewell
dinner as minister of war. on the 27th
iust. It is now concluded " that . Gen.
Stachan will succeed Count yon Schel
lendorf, Gen. Wittich'- 1 replacing Gen.
Stachan in command -. of the Second
division of the infantry of the guard,
and Count WedeL succeeding to the ad
jutant generalship, j The .Peters Em in

Several young German officers in search
of African adventure: have obtained the
emperor's permission to accompany the
expedition. The armory of the expedi

beyond the coast, it is not expected that
it will ever reach Wadelak The police

A White Cap Party's Raid on Poker

Reform Masquerade by a Party of La

i "What if White Caps should organize
in 'St. .Paul,*-', more than one person has .;
asked with a shudder, "after reading of
some fresh atrocity committed by these*
lawless reformers in other cities. But
the apprehension realized comes ; with
an awful suddenness,. as if no' hint of it j
had ever been suggested. It was about
11 o'clock Tuesday evening. .Politics
and purity still stalked the office of the
Merchants' hotel, and on the floors above
the ice pitchers jl clink-clanked along
the halls,prophesyiugof dry throats and*
parched tongues in the : morning.
Through the transom of room 157 flashed
on the 1 famous corridor outside the daz
zling blaze of Senator Blackmau's shirt
stud or the harvest moonlight of Michael
Moran's smile,' while: from 155 the
smooth tones of John Greece now' bade
'Ante up, me.boy;" and now.the uncer
tain utterance of Col. Ellen commingled
with the statesmanlike voice of Judge'
Smith in an altercation over an inti
mated deal of unrevealed nature. The
. other room was strangely silent. When
early in the evening Marcus Johnson
cautiously crept out and . closed the
door behind him, the lock immediately
Clicked and Gen. Baker stuck his . head
through the transom . to ask,' ''You
couldn't barricade -it on the ■ outside,
coo, could you, senator?" '-"Hush," said
the' senator;- "be still and you may be
; sabred." But for all the assumed confi
dence of the statesman from Atwater,
- Uis:keeri blue eye rolled uneasily, and
■ ma hair on the top ot his head -stood up
trembling in the hope offinding another ;
tfe'lceep it company as he stole iii terror
i down the corridor to the elevator. '
i j Ex-Gov. Harvard had just opened a
Ijapk pot with five aces when there was .
Id ijap on the door, and Host John Greece
i-WCUt to respond. He approached
tjhe door, and chancing to notice
I tjhttt one of the; legs of the table had
tqaine" undressed, he waited till Col.
Ellen had . properly readjusted the
f^ieet which every evening is modestly
tjed about the legs of all the tables used
: Poker row" before the . gentlemen
j*it flown before them. This bit of de
£dornrtot is .'..'shirt, was, established ..by;
<|qf-. O'Leary' whose deference; to , pro-,
priety and nicety" iv small matters is. a
characteristic of every true. French gen-:
tleman. : The bolt was slipped, the
door opened aud John Greece fell sense
less to the floor. There stood in awful, ;
sepulchral majesty ten white-shrouded
figures, each bearing . on . his
breast a sable skull and cross bones and
the terrible revelation in black letters,
"White „ Caps." Their eyes gleamed
through their white masks a threaten
ing determination to have gore, and the
forefinger of each right hand pointed
at their victims with the horrible ihex
orableuess of the finger of fate. Into
the room the specters crowded, urging
in gutteral tones: "Mend your ways."-
The hands of ex-Gov. Harvard and
Judge Smith with a common im
pulse sought each other for support
over the jack pot. Col. Ellen
endeavored to beg for mercy, and in the
desperate effort he made . swallowed
the quid of tobacco he was chewing,:
and succeeded in whistling. "Jack the
Kipper," said the. White Cap who took
the lead of the band to a smaller figure
beside him, "laugh and bring John
Greece to his senses." Such a laugh as
only a lost soul laughs at the gates of
hell stood John Greece on his feet una
minute. "Open • the pot now, Jack."
commanded the leader, and Jack lifted
off the nerveless hands ot ex-Gov.'Har
vard and Judge Smith. "Now : call
them." came the order, and. ten shroud
ed hands presented ten loaded guns . to
the heads of the four good men before
them. "That beats my four aces," said
ex-Gov. Harvard, throwing down his
hand, and Jack the Ripper took the pot. 1
After leaving a card.bearing the legend,
L''Mem"t your ways," the specters slowly
Wheeled about and retired. "Boys,"
said* Col. Ellen with tears of repentance
in his eyes' "we will open an ew deal.
They have carried off our pile." Vies,":
returned John Greece with a sigh; "and
they took it with a jack." ! '•;. ' '*
i "See who's at the door, Michael," said
Col. De Grimm when a rap sounded on
1&5. "Holy poker,", gasped Mr; -Moran
as he faced the white-robed ; marauders.
"Howly mither of Moses," ejaculated
Col. O'Leary; "Keep 'em out. 'Moike.
keep 'em out; they're a bad-looking
lot." But Mr. Moran's efforts were of
no avail: On they came, their threaten
ing fingers - boding ; ill to all. -:. "Mend
your ways," they warned .in a chorus. ■
"Wear no more diamonds at your peril.
Get 'to 'a nunnery and be a" monk,", they
ordered Senator Blackmail. " "We give :
voir one more show," they accorded
Senator Falseax. "Beware ". of : Marcus
Johnson,", they said to Mr. House, and
s to Harry Sheeperton— "Deal once more
iat your peril." A $25 jack-pot on the
[table passed into Jack the Ripper's: ;
possession, and.'on /the awful; pro-
cession moved. At the door --of; ■
jal young woman, - they; paused to
' sfiid her into hysterics," and then in the
'Wake of a basket of champagne they
iAarched to the room of C. W. Young
man and wife, where it developed that

Mrs. Simons, Mr. and Mrs. C.W. Young- :

Chicago, Feb. 23.— This has been the

thus far. ] At ' 7 o'clock this morning 11
"deg." below zero was registered, and in
i spite of the : bright , sunshina ' the • mer

up to the dividing line. At noon 5 deg.'

very cold in *i Chicago. - It : : felt a •': little

a record of 53 *.'-' deg. below zero.
: Not only is | the " thermometer ' low, but
the barometer is higher ' there than
Scrgt.' Fi ankenf eld r ' ever knew * of its
being. : When it stands" at 30 or 29.9 it is
normal, and a tenth of an inch .means a
big change, bat up in Minrtedosa -it is
31.14. The 31 area is "from:; Dakota to
: East ■ Nebraska and lowa, and as ', far
cast as the" Mississippi'" Here in; Chi
cago the barometer stands at 30.9, which
is abnormally high." , Out \ in ; Southern
.Colorado and • Utah an area of ' lower
barometer pressure .has developed it
self, which, if properly managed, will
bring about a lowering of the tempera
ture in a day or so. the rule being that
the greatest cold is just previous to the
greatest barometric pressure.
•Mankato, Minn.; Feb.' 23.*— The mer

taken in. Many of the harvesters will
work all day Sunday. If the weather
keeps cold 100,000 tons of ice will be

A Visit to the Telephone Ex
change Reveals Many
. Facts of Interest.
A. Revelation.
; Winter is a selfish season, and it is well for
our hearts that Christmas comes in the midst
of it— a new life of the soul in the midst of
■■■...•' ... -.- : .'-*"-.-'
a physical death. It is easy to be generous
when the sun ' is warm, • but during these
bleak nn J bitter months the unregenerate
mind instinctively thinks first of itself. In
winter the homes of our rich people are lux
urious and splendid with all that wealth can
bestow, and life glows with a sort of fierce
ness as if in defiance of the relentless chill
out of doors. ...
It is during this cold and bleak weather
we feel the need of the telephone most, as
anything that will , make ■. exposure to the
weather unnecessary is gladly welcomed. j
Having our curiosity excited to see the cen- ' ]
tral ofliee, the reporter paid a visit there not
long since, and had a very pleasant chat with
Mrs. J. 1). Rogers, the congenial lady in
charge at that time. Mrs. Rogers has been a
resident of the Zenith City for some five
. years, having before coming here resided in
Minneapolis. : Sbe. is delighted with the fine
weather we are having this fall, and. during
the conversation remarked that • absolute
good health was the great secret of true
happiness. .
Asked if she had not always enjoyed that
blessing, she said no, she had not! "I will
tell: you how it was,"' sbe answered. '.'Shortly
after I first came here I took a : severe cold,,
which settled in my head, not appearing to
bother me much iv the throat. At first I sup
posed I had a bad cold, and that in time it ;
would be all right, but I found it was a cold
all the time, so I commenced doctoring my
self trying to rid myself of it, but I could not.
About three years ago in consulting a physi
cian I was told that my trouble was catarrh
of the head. Then I started in for regular
treatment for " it. and ■ ■ since • then ' have
been under the care of three, different doc
tors, and treated without getting any benefit
at all • until Cl~ began to regard my case as
hopeless. I kept getting worse all the " time, :
and this summer I was so bad that life was a
burden, and I began to get alarmed, as I was
afraid I would have to give up my situational
My head was full all the time, and I had a *
very poor appetite and such a tired, languid
feeling: in fact I could not describe to you .
my feelings. : I was feeling as miserable as.
one : can very well, my stomach got out or
order, and generally I was in a condition not;
to be envied by any person.. -. „ :/. --.
i "Well. I had been reading the;, papers, and •
noticing of the wonderful success attending
many of the parties - treated by Dr. Cosman,
and asa dernier resort. 1 concluded to go and '
see him. . I did not expect that he could do
me auy good, but knew that , I must have
something ; done or I would not be around
long." - ';-.-;. \ ...-._;,.
--;"Well, how did yau succeed*?" -".
--; {'Splendid 1 Far ahead of my most sanguine
expectations. I am very glad the doctor ever:
came to Duluth, and that I have been so fort- ,
unate as to be - under ; his treatment I can .
truly say. that to-day I feel - like another . per*
son. 1 have lost all the tired, - ; languid feel
ing that I had, and feel as if there was some
thing in life for me .; worth " living for. ■ -.• My -
head is in first-class condition,' and I cannot ;
say enough for Dr. Cosman and bis excellent
skill in the ; treatment of catarrh. . I- have \
been treating with him four months, and can |
say that all he promised has been fully real
ized, and I would most heartily recommend
any person suffering from catarrh or kindred,
diseases to go | and ] see \ him, - for I feel that ;
after I have been benefited as I have there is 1
no need for any person •' to '• despair, for I be-,
lieve that I was the worst case the doctor,
ever had." Mrs. Rogers resides at Tenth ave- .
