BEST TWO IN THREE.
Trotting Associations Make a Radical Change in the Rules. Races Hereafter Will Consist of Only a Trio of Heats. Each Association Will Help the Other Collect Turf men's Debts. Slow Time Made by the Skates at Guttenburg and Gloucester. "New Yore, March 15.— The commit tee of the National and American Trot ting associations held a meeting this morning and continued consideration of the two codes. President Johnston opened proceedings by offering the suggestion that licenses to drivers shall be granted, and drivers must have one if they drive in a race. Mr. Mc- Fall followed to the effect that a joint commission be appointed at the Chicago meeting which shall be empowered to settle all differences of the association. Another important suggestion was that races consist of the best two of three heats, instead of the best three in five. This change is de sirable from the fact that it will make more racing In each heat. When these suggestions had been discussed and agreed upon the question of helping each other out In the matter of enforcing matters for non payment of entry and other matters was taken up. It was argued that should each association enforce suspension regardless of the association to which the debtor belonged much trouble would be escaped. It was then agreed that in all cases where the amount of debt should exceed 5500 the association should act. The conference adjourned this afternoon to meet again at Chicago, on April 4. PHOGXIX CLUB SOIREE. A Good Melange Offered for To night's Entertainment. One of the most important events In the history of sports in St. Paul will occur this evening in the arena of the Phoenix Athletic club, lt will be the fourth of the series of monthly enter tainments given by the club, and the ar rangements which have been made for the occasion warrant the assertion that it will be superior to even the excellent entertainments which have been given in the past. At a great expense the management of the club has secured the services of the most proficient men in this part of the country for the exhibitions this evening. There will be a number of contests for liberal purses, and the affair will be one of the most closely contested in the history of scientific boxing in St. Paul. There will be five or more contests, all of the participants being favorites in their way in this city. The contests will be decided entirely on the merits of the sparrers, and some very hard work is promised. The prin cipal event of the evening will be the . -Fitzpatrick contest. Both of the 'men are well known in the city, and both have a large number of friends who are confident of the prowess of their favorites. The men are evenly matched, and will be of the same weight at the time of entering the ring. » McDonough and Rhode, who sparred ten rounds recently, will have another go. as the loser was dissatisfied with the affair. He claimed that he was not in goad condition at the time of the previ ous event, and, although his opponent gained a sufficient number of points to defeat him, lie is confident that he will win this evening. Thompson, commonly called the "Zulu," will have a contest with Dell Stalker. Both of the men are very heavy and are evenly matched, and it is expected that they will have a hard contest for the cash prize, which will be given by the club. Gardener and Schulenbere and Cur tis, of Duluth, and an unknown, will also contest for purses, and there will be a number of other entertainments lor the evening. The affair will be a very expensive one for the club, but it is expected that there will be a large crowd present. It has so far been the policy of the club management to havo none but the best kind of talent present at the monthly entertainments, and it has been found to pay from a financial standpoint and also from a popular side of tne question. The club is composed entirely of men who are desirous of witnessing scientific contests, and who are willing to pay for the purpose of seeing a first-class en tertainment. None of the representa tives of the rough element, such as are popularly supposed to attend such en tainmenls, are permitted inside the rooms of the club. The exhibitions which are given are not in the order ot slugging matches; such affairs are not permitted by the management of the " club, and the members do not desire to see such exhibitions. The sale of seats for the entertain ment this evening has already been very large, and the club will doubtless have a lull attendance. Notwithstanding the fact that the entertainment will be a very expensive one, the. price of ad mission wil! ii*' the same. CONEY'S NEXT .MILL. George Siddons and Jack Skelly to Don the Mits.

Eight Human Bodies Shipped ln Barrels as Household Goods. Louisville. March Eight human bodies packed in four barrels was the ghastly discovery made by a height handler of the Newport News & Missis sippi Valley freight depot. Five of the* bodies are men's and the other three women. Whether there is some crim inality attached to the matter or whether the bodies were intended for dissection by medical bodies remains to be seen. A man] called at thejdepot and said he desired to ship a quantity of household goods to Big Clifly. Ky. He gave his name as W. T. Gweeus, and from his appearance the clerk took him to be a professional man. He returned two hours later with an express wagon con taining the household goods he had mentioned during his previous visit. Among other things were two ordinary barrels. That was the last seen of the man, though nothing was thought of the matter until the horrible contents of the barrel were discovered today by one of the clerks. Thii afternoon the freight' handlers were moving the barrels aud had moved two of them when they discovered what they were handling. The third barrel was placed upon a truck, and, while it was being rolled across the floor, one of the pieces of the head broke out. This loosened the entire head, and when the men attempted to up-end the bar rel it broke and the head, shoul ders and arms of a human body came out. Officers were called and an examination of the barrels was made and all of them found to contain human bodies. This led tlie oflicers to believe that the barrels had been packed in the dead room of some medical col lege for the purpose of dissection, It had been suggested that the stranger is a dealer in that kind of ghoulish goods, and. being unable to dispose of the bodies here, intended to ship them where he could hold them without fear of discovery.

' . — :fess| Republican Senators Com plete Their List of Com- ! . mittee Assignments. 'V: _ •' ":* rt , ; .lr.,tXT- U.r: j Washington, March 15.—Ex-Repre sentative Blount, of Georgia, left Wash ington last night for San Francisco, ac companied by Ellis Mills, a confidential stenographer of the state department. He is, it is confidently asserted, bound tor Honolulu on a secret mission, an appointment which required no con firmation by the senate. The .se lection of Mr. Blouut for this mis sion indicates that Mr. Cleveland is not yet satisfied that -Hawaii should be annexed to the United States, but Las not made up his mind to oppose it. Mr. Blount will make a very thor ough investigation of the situation, and the president's future action on the sub ject will probably be governed by his report. As chairman of the foreign af fairs committee when the matter first came before the public, Mr. Blount took a very conservative position, refusing to commit himself on the subject of an nexation without further information. More than a year before the over throw of the queen a delegation from the Hawaiian legislature came to this country without public announcement, seeking some indication from this coun try of what support , The Revolutionary Party might rely on if they should overthrow the old government and establish a pro visional government, as has been done. The ultimate object, as they then disclosed, was to secure an nexation to this country, as they did not hope of success in the permanent establishment of a new government. Mr. Blount was among the few persons with whom they talked, and he then refused to commit himself to any plan of the sort. Thero is no doubt that since the overthrow of the queen he has had some suspicion that this government may have encouraged the revolution, and might possibly be accused of having a part In the estab lishment of the new government of the islands with which wo were asked to treat. *' ■ , The question of how to overthrow the government was brought about 1 ,) and whether the provisional government actually represents popular sentiment will, it is understood, be thoroughly investigated. First of all, the fact will be established that this government, pending the ratification of a treaty giving the right to do so, will not inter fere in any way with the affairs of tiie islands, except, if need be, to defend them from ' ■'■ -" Foreign Encroachments, the idea being that a government claim ing to represent, the people of the islands must be strong enough to main tain itself if we are to treat with it. The probability that we will do nothing to maintain the provisional' government against any other government of : the; people of Hawaii themselves, that might be or seek to be established. But if it is found that, the provisional govern ment is really the chosen government of the islands and is not dependent upon the support of the United States for its existence, the proposition for annexation may be favorably regarded and an amended treaty may be sent to the senate at the next session. How ever, apart from other considerations, the desirability of annexing the islands will be investigated as a business prop osition, it is said that the administra tion early received information which was deemed to be reliable, that the overthrow of Queen Liliott kalani and the establishments of a provisional government were the result of a plan formulated by the sugar-producing elements of the islands, and which was furthered In San Fran cisco. Upon receiving this information the withdrawal of the treaty was deter mined on. Cipher dispatches went out last night from both the state and navy depart ments for Honolulu, which will go* for ward on the steamer Australia for San Francisco today. What these dispatches contain none of the officials in either department will say. ■ 7y^yy.y COMMITTEES COMPLETE. The Republican Caucus Makes Its Assignments. Washington*, March 15.— The Re publican members ot the senate went into caucus this morning at 10 o'clock for the purpose of receiving, the report of its committee on the assignment of minority chairmanships and member ship of the various committees. At noon the caucus had not finished its work, and when the senate was called to order the Republicans entered the chamber without being ready to make any re port. After the caucus reassembled there was a debate ot some length on the subject of the removal of Mr. Stewart, of Nevada, from the appropriations committee. Mr. Stewart found one or two champions, but the caucus was practically unanimous in the opinion, that inasmuch as Mr. Stewart had been* the recipient of a chairmanship at the hands of thu majority, he should not be permitted to remain on the important committee on appropriations as a Re publican minority, tie was therefore removed, and -Mr. Teller,, of Colorado,' was substituted in his place. So far as* finally agreed upon, nine of the eleven minority chairmanships will be filled as follows: r' j Mr. Sherman, of Ohio, the conference committee: engrossed bills, Mr. Allison, of Iowa; epidemic diseases, Mr. Jones, Nevada; private land claims, Mr.'. -Hale, Maine: committee to investigate::: the condition of tiie Potomac river front of Washington, Mr. Frye, of Maine; woman suffrage, Mr. Hoar. r, Mas sachusetts; additional accommoda tions for the library of congress, Mr. Morrill.

Washington, March 15.— A very dig nified delegation was introduced tothe president today by Bancroft Davis, the recorder of the supreme court. It was composed ot four bishops of the Epis copal church, Rt. Revs. Paret, of Mary land; Potter, of New York; Whittaker, of Pennsylvania, and Hare, of South Dakota. They were shown into the private part of the house and the presi dent and Secretary of State Gresham joined them there. The object of their visit was to discuss with Mr. Cleve land the Chinese exclusion law with re lation to its bearing on American inter ests in China. They said that a strict enforcement of the law would be apt to endanger the property and lives of Americans. They told the president that they came to him not as represen tatives of the church but as citizens, and they hart no suggestions to make, had simply come to 'confer with him, and Mr. Cleveland said in reply that he had to enforce this as well as other laws of the country. ; The bishops admitted this, but suggested that it might be possible to mitigate in some degree the severity of the law's operations. The president told them he would do what he could, and the interview terminated. NO USELESS OFFICIALS. Agricultural Department Posi tions to Be Left Vacant. Washington, March 15.— Secretary Morton, of the agricultural department, has found time to familiarize himself with the duties of neaily all of the em ployes of the department. There are several places that are regarded by him as sinecures, and he does not propose that the incumbents shall much longer draw a larure salary .without giving the government a fair return. -He lias con cluded that several of these positions arc not essential to the success of the department, and will shortly notify the incumbents that their places are vacant. They will not be filled. The secretary says he intends to run his department on a business basis. Where officials do not earn their salary it will be turned over to the credit of the department. On account of the insufficiency of the appropriation for the seed division of the department of agriculture Secretary Morton has been compelled to sign an order dismissing about sixty employes of that division.
