£tl;;erton Rink Devoted to Skat
ing for Record*— lee Poor and
No Records Broken — New
Rules to Purify the Harvard
Sports— How New Year's Was
The skating races at Edgerton rink,
tinder the auspices of the Minnesota
Athletic club, were witnessed by a large
crowd, numbering probably fifteen hun
dred to two thousand people. The ice
was not in best of shape on account of
Varm weather, and the time made In
the several events was especially good.
The first race was between Charles
llotf and O. OUon. This was won by
the former in 7:0>: : ,. the distance being
two miles. Olson fell on the first lap,
thereby practically losing the contest at
the start, as Hoff • was fully bis equal,
and Olson ejuld not regain the lost
The sec.ond event was a boys' race of
a mile, and was won by Oluf Johnson.
Time, :'»:-ll i-b. Then followed a mile
race between William Martin and
Auston Lee. Martin had a bad fall on
the second round, and this save Lee an
advantage which won the contest for
him. Lee won by about fifty feet in
3:2ls£. As 11. ,1. Overbye did not ap
pear to skate against 11. I). Smith, his
place was taken by Louis Johnson,
who made a very pretty struggle at one
mile. Smith was too fast for Johnson,
however, and won by about l.*>o feet, his
time of 3:07 3-5 being the best at the
distance made during the afternoon,
and being better by two seconds than
any previously made by Smith. The
three-mile race between Bird and
JSeneibe was a hot one. The men skated
nearly even for two miies, but
Scheibe was in better condition, and
on the last mile gained about 125 feet.
Setieibe won the race, going the three
miles in 9:24%, which is by far the best
time ever made in this vicinity, and
next best to Johnson's state record.
There were several trials asraiust time
at one-half mile and one mile. Frank
Crawford went a half mile in 1:35. with
out pace makers. Ed Pannell covereu
the same distance in I:2B>£, and A. D.
Smith then tackled it, and succeeded in
making it in 1:26^, which is within 4)£
seconds of the last American record.
J. Davidson then tried a mill, and low
ered his best previous records by about
two seconds, going in 3:13.
The afternoon's sport was about the
best that iias ever been seen it St. Paul,
and the large crowd was well pleased.
The races were run off promptly, com
mencing exactly at 2:30 p. m. The in
tervals between contests were short.
Fritz Luhr acted as clerk of the
course, ami Dave Waliblom as starter.

McElroy Is said to be a clever man
•with his mitts, having knocked out
Fitzpatriek at Brainerd in two rout.ds
last week. To show that the Fitzpatrick
is a good one it might be stated that he
bested Dick Moore at the Market hall in
this city in four rounds some time ago
and that that contest was to have been
for six rounds but was stopped in the
fourth and the contest awarded to
Dick Moore tioina: to the Front
in Boston.
A letter received by Jack Merchant,
formerly one of Dick Moore's managers,
from Boston, states that St. Paul's
favorite young iitrhter is coming on
splendidly in the Beau City, and sdves
the information that he bested Ed
Hoach, an Eastern cracker jack, In four
rounds. The Boston Post, in reporting
the fiKht, said that Dick could have
whipped his man in the first round had
he so desired, and that when he did
knock him out in the fourth it was
really the first time that he attempted
to strike a bard blow. All the Boston
papers comment highly on Dick's prow
ess as a lighter, and say he is one of the
coming stars. Dick writes further that
he will have articles signed for a match

that he expects to make the fiaht of his
lile iv that battle.

To Purify Harvard Sports Go
Into Effect.
Cambridge, Mass., Jan. I.— Today
the new athletic rules which are to pu
rify Harvard athletics went into full ef
lect. They are the final product of
many years' work by old Harvard
coachers and men who are the leaders
in her athletics. The new rules apply
with equal severity to football, base ball
and all track athletics. For years it has
been argued by other colleges that pro
fessionalism creeps into Harvard ath
letics and is let go unmolested by the
captains because the ineligible men
are stars. Now the primary pur
pose of the rules going into ef
fect today is to thoroughly purify all
individuals and team athletics from any
tinge of professionalism. These rules
are drawn up and signed by Bertram G.
Waters and George A. Stewart, and
take effect Jan. 1, 1594. Id defining the
term amateur, the new rules say no
students shall be allowed to represent
Harvard university in any public ath
letic contest, either individually or as a
member ot any team, whether before or
since entering the university shall have
engaged for money in any athletic com
petition, whether for a stake or a money
prize or a share of the entrance fees or
admisoion money; or who shall have
taught 01 engaged in any athletic exer
cise or sport as a means of a livelihood.
Aijaiu. in speaking of boua fide stu
dents, no one shall be allowed to repre
sent Harvard in any public contest,
either individually or as a member of
any athletic team, unless he intends to
be throughout a college year a bona fide
member of the university, takine a full
year's work. A student who is dropped
for neglect of his studies into a lower
class shall be debarred takine part
in intei-coileghtte contests until
the end of tlie next academic
year, until he is permitted by the
faculty to rejoin his class. No one
hereafter entering the university who
is not a regular student in the college
or scientific school and no regular
student in either of these departments
who has ever played in an inter-collegi
ate contest npon a class or university
team of any other college shall play
upon a Harvard team until he has
resided one academic year at the uni
versity, and passed the annual examina
tions upon a full year's work.
Os the time limit there is this regula
tion. No student, whether he has rep
resented one or more colleges, shall
take part in the inter-collegiate contests
for more than four years; and this
period shall begin with the. year in
which as a plajer upon a university
team he first represented any college",
In reckoning these four years, any year
of probation and any year lost to a stu
dent by illness shall be excluded. By
these rules many Harverd star athletes
will be thrown out of playing the re
nininder of this year. Especially will
it weaken the basebiiil team.
And Xo One Knows What He
Will Ho.
Jacksonville, Fla.. Jan. l.— Steve
O'Donnell and Jim Hall, who assist in
training Mitchell, passed through Jack

passed throuh Jacksonville this morn
ing en route to Tallahassee, the state
capital, but while here he let drop
no hint as to how he proposes
to stop the fight if Judge Call decides
that glove contests are not illegal in
this state. - There was a story current
in sporting circles today that the man
agers of the athletic club had inside
information that the governor would
look to Sheriff Broward. of this county,
to stop the tight, and if he fails wouid
suspend him from office. The story is
of a piece with others floating around.
The truth is, everything is uncertain,
for nobody Knows* what Gov. Mitchell
will do. save the governor himself, aud
he is not divulging his plans.

Hagan and Doster tomorrow morning,
when they apply to the supreme court

meeting was to have been held at Win

and the man." Upon her information

manded Snyder's surrender. Snyder

house to give hive himself up. When
the prisoner aud detective reached the
station 2,000 people were massed in
front, and Chief Powell, of the police

Sad Ending of a Kentucky New
Year's Party.
Clakksville, Tenu., Jan. I.— News
has just reached here of a tragedy at
lladensville, Ky., fifteen miles from
Claritsville, on the Louisville & Nash
ville road, one girl becoming the slayer
of another girl friend. Two young
ladies, aged eighteen or twenty, were
examining Christmas presents at the
residence of J. F. Shelton, when Miss
Sheltou picked up a revolver, aud, aim
ing it at Miss Allen, daughter of Esquire
Allen, one of her guests, said:
"Watch out, I will shoot you." in
stantly a loud report rang out and Miss
Shelton beheld her companion of girl
hood days fall dead at her feet with a
bullet in her temple. There are sev
eral reports as to the cause of the trag
edy. Reliable parties state that the
two giris were rivals in love, aud that
Miss Shelton committed a murder.
Others, equaily as reliable, are of the
opinion that the shooting was acci
dental, Miss Sheltcn not knowing the
weapon was loaded.
Theater Manager Arrested.

ett, of trie People's theater, was arrested

Looking for Kvaus and Morrell.
FRE\3No,Cal.,Jan.l.— Sheriff Scott and
posse, who are after Chris Evaus and
Ed Morrell, are still unheard from. The
fact that some word is not received
from them is said to be due to the order
Scott gave the posse to keep their work
secret from the press, claiming that the
bandits would make use of the pub
lished plans of the officers In evading
them. From this it seems that nothing
is likely to be heard from them till they

Grand Chief Clark, or Conductors'
lfrotherhood. Arrives to Assist
in (he Northern Pacific Trouble
— Intimates Judge Jenkins'
Restraining Employes From
Quitting the Service Is Unjust.
E. E. Clark, of Cedar Rapids, 10., ar
rived in the city yesterday and regis
tered at the Merchants'. He came direct
from Chicago, and is grand chief of the
Order of Railway Conductors. He ex
pects to remain here until tonight. He
took supper last night with a number of
the members of the Northern Pacibc
conference committee at the Windsor.
He was seen at the latter hotel, and
asked as to what his mission is. lie re
plied: ,
"1 came to St. Paul to confer with the
members of the Northern Pacific con
ference committee and to help in in
vestigating the exact condition of affairs
as between them and the company. 1
met with the committee today and shall
also do so tomorrow, acting in an advis
ory capacity and furnishing them with
data and information. 1 desire to secure
an exact statement of tne condition of
tiieir affairs, and am in a condition to
furuish tham with information in rela
tion to competing lines, and as to the
conditions existing in other territory.
"We do not believe there was any ne
cessity for the reduction In the pay of
| these men, and if there did exist any
necessity for it, we do not believe there
is the shadow of an excuse tor cutting
wages below a figure paid by competi
tors as well as a further reduction as
the result of the abrogation or amend
ment of rules relating to the pay for ex
tra or unusual service. When notice of
such intention on the part of the com
pany was issued it was natural the men
should send their committees here to
protest. They came in the same spirit
as when these schedules were made. I
understand a restraining order was
issued to prevent the employes from
interfering with the company's prop
erty. ThU I consider entirely
uncalled tor at the time. I believe it
had an irritating effect. In all my ex
perience 1 have never met a more rea
sonable or intelligent, conservative, and
at the same time determined, set of
representatives. We do not believe
there is anything connected with the
administration of the affairs of these or
ganizations that called for the issuance
of a restraining order. We propose to
continue to carry out the same general
line of policy that we have followed ip \
the past, that is to serve and protect the
interests of those we represent, so far
as it is possible for us to do, under our
and their rights, as citizens of the
country. lam not "prepared to state
what our line of action will be, but we
! will leave no honorable effort untried
that will brine matters to a position
that will be satisfactory to the men.
: "I understand that Judge Jenkins'
order enjoins the men from leaving: the
company's service.either collectively or
individually, on the grounds that they
are officers or servants of the court. If
it is good and constitutional' law that
•restrains a man from leaving a service
which he voluntarily entered at a time
when the compensation promised him
is materially reduced, because the road
is in the hands of receivers, it must be
equally good law • which would
require him to ~ remain m
the service against his '- will
and after his compensation had been
reduced far below a point at which it
would furnish him. a living. We believe
that it is perfectly proper for the United
'States to afford protection to receivers
appointed by its courts whenever they
need it. I also believe that it is a right
guaranteed to every citizen to seeK em
ployment where he may choose, and
remain therein so long as he and his
employer can agree, and exercise the
same degree of freedom in leaving as
in entering it."
Mr. Clark spent some time in Phila
delphia during the recent Lehigh Val

very highly of the way in which the
newspaper men there used him.
Of the Northern Pacific Case From
Little Rock.
Little Rock, Ark., Jan. I.— Apropos
of the threatened strike which was to
have taken place today on the Northern
Pacific, and the recent order of Judge
Jenkins, at Milwaukee, enjoining the
strike, and the subsequent order of
Judge Caldwell at St. Paul, the fol
lowing will be of deep interest to
the public. The general administra
tion of the receivership of the Northern
Pacific railroad devolves on the United
States circuit court at Milwaukee, Wis.
That court is called the primary juris
diction, the receivers having first been
appointed and the property turned
I over to .them under the or
ders of that court. But It
was necessary that the United States
court in the other states through which
the road ran should confirm^ for this dis
trict the action of the Milwaukee court.
; This was done by filing a bill and pro-
I curing auxiliary, receiverships in each
state. All orders of the court of prima
ry jurisdiction requiring to be enforced
id the other states are usually entered
as of course and presented to those
courts. But a gentleman in the city
from St. Paul says the United States
circuit court In that city refused to
enter that part of the order of the
Milwaukee court enjoining the officers
of the labor organizations from order
ing a strike on the road or the em
ployes from striking on account of a
reduction ot their wages, but did enter
so much of the order as enjoined the
employes, in case they struck, from
.interfering with the Droperty or the
men employed to take their places.
When Judge Caldwell was appealed to.
for information on this point, he de
clined to say more than that the writs
issued by the two courts . will dis-
J close the difference between them. To
I an Associated Pressure porter, who asked
Judge Caldwell if there was any danger
of a strike on any of the roads in this
{circuits in the hands of. receivers, he
[answered that there was not, so far
as he knew. Upon being asked what
jhe would do if a strike was threatened
on account of a reduction of
| wages on any of the roads for which he
lias appointed receivers, he replied:
"if receivers should apply for leave to
.reduce the existing scale of wages, be
fore acting upon their petition I would
require them to give notice of the
application to the officers or
representatives of the several labor
organizations to be affected
by the proposed change of the time and
place ot hearing, and would also re
quire them to grant such officers of rep
resentatives leave of abseucu and fur
nish them transportation to the place of
hearing and substituting them wliile
in attendance, and 1 would hear both
sides in person or by attor
neys, it they wanted attorneys to
appear for them. The employes* on a
road in the hands of a receiver are em
ployes of the court, and as much in its
service as the receivers themselves, and
as much entitled to be heard upon any
proposed order- -of the court which
would affect the. whole body of em
ployes. If. a fie r a full bearing ami
toi.siueratinn. 1 lmind that it \v«s neces
sary, equitabtu and brat to reduce tlie
sea:*.* ot wages, i would give. i li.* -em
i>luye» .iiiiplu time to determine wtieiuvr
they would accept or reject the scale.
If •: they' rejected it they would not
be enjoined from quitting the service
of the court either singly or in a
body; in other words, 1 would not
enjoin them from striking, but if they
made their election to strike I would
make it niaiu to them that they must
not, they quitting the service of ''the
court, interfere with the property of
or the operations of the road, or of the
men employed to take their places.
United States court can very readily
find the means to effectually pretect the
property in its possession and the per
sons in Us employ. I have in one or two
instances pursued the policy I have in
dicated, and the differences were satis
factorily adjusted."
Old and New Schedules Cora*
The engineers' sub-committee of the
Northern Pacific conference committee
met again with the officials of the com
pany yesterday to present the grievances
of their brotherhood. Yesterday closed
the conference with this branch of em
ployes, and the talk lasted all day. The
old and new schedules were talked over
and it was found they agreed on many
points. Certain points were laid aside.
After the company has given its answer
to the statement presented, it will then
be taken to the receivers for a final an
swer. A stenographic report of all' the
arguments for and against the state
ment submitted will be reduced to
type-written form, and given the broth
erhood, accompanied by General Mana
ger Keudrick's answer.
The firemen will present their case
today at 11 a. m., and will close by to
night. The conductors will probably
be heard tomorrow.
Economizing All Around.
Boston. Jan. 1. — Retrenchment in
expenses is the word all along the line
of the Old Colony system. Twenty-one
firemen were discharged Saturday.
I There are only six men in the repair
shops, and many of the freight trains
are running short one of their crew.
Many of the semaphores are now burn
ing only one light where there was
formerly two, and orders have been
sent out to save all expense in the way
of light. _^^^J__
More enjoyable exercises have neve
been held in the prison chapel than
those that the convicts were permitted
to listen to yesterday. Every inmate
forgot Ins surroundings for the time
being, and joined in the festivities of
the day. Dull care and brooding were
banished, and happiness held full sway
for a few hours. At a little after 9
o'clock the convicts marched from their
cells to the chapel, where the exercises
that followed were impressive and en
tertaining. A number of Mrs. Clara
Gish's pupils in elocution delivered rec
itations, and the Stillwater Mandolin
club rendered some of its best selections.
Many of the inmates had never heard
mandolin music, and at the close of
every selection there was a general
clapping of hands, and the players re
sponded to a number of encores. Several
. very appropriate selections were also
rendered by the prison choir, assisted
by Mrs. Gish's vocal class. At the close
of the chapel exercises the inmates pro
ceeded to the paint shop, where they
enjoyed themselves until" the whistle
sounded for dinner. The mandolin
club accompanied them to the shop, and
some of the colored inmates furnished
amusement for all with their dances
and clogs. The dinner served in the
dining rooms was tit for any one, and
the principal delicacies were chicken
pie, light biscuit, cake and coffee with
sugar and milk. The usual holiday
privileges were granted in the after
noon. v- ;
About 1,200 residents of this city and
Hudson witnessed the trotting matinee
on the St. Croix ice track ' yesterday
afternoon, and the races almost cul
minated in a row. It took four heats to
decide the winner, the race being given
to Barney X, owned by Abe Kohrbach,
of this city. Spot Buford, owned by Mr.
Sampson, of Hudson, came in first in
the first heat, but was set back for run
ning. Barney X came in first in the
third heat, but was set back for trotting
in front of Buford. Whether or not the
judees did right was a question which
led to a big dispute, but, rather than let
the race go by default, Mr. Rohrbach
started his horse in the final heat, and
won by more than a length.
John Sullivan, familiarly known as
"Slab Alley Jack," was arraigned in
the municipal court yesterday, charged
with robbing a man, but the case was
continued until Friday. Sullivan will
spend the intervening time in the county
New Year's day was observed in a
quiet manner by residents of this city.
Merchants closed their places ot busi
ness at noon, and in the afternoon all
took part in a fitting observance of the
Rev. and Mrs. J. H. Albert were
pleasantly surprised at their home last
evening oy members of Grace Congre
gational church and other friends.
The funeral of Mrs. Denault occuired
yesterday, and was largely attended.
The Nomination of Judge Horn
blower May be Recalled.
St. Louis, Jan. I.— A Republic Wash
ington special says: It is stated in ad
ministration circles tonight that the
president will withdraw the nomination
of Mr. Horn blower, of New York, for
an associate justiceship of the supreme
court. There are several versions of
the story, all insisting that they are
accurate. The one told this evening by
a man high in the councils of the Dem
ocratic party aud very close to the
president is to this effect: The presi
dent has concluded that Hornblower
cannot be confirmed. In consequence,
he has decided to withdraw his nomi
nation and substitute Gluey, the present
attorney general, for the vacant judg«j
ship; put Bissell, the present post
master general, in Olney's place, and
put Josiah Quincy, late assistant secre
tary of state, in Bissell's place as post
master geueral.
