ST. PAUL HAD A PULL.
No Other City Really in It for the Western League Vacancy. COMISKEY GETS THE PRIZE. Former Captain of the Cin cinnati heels Secures the Franchise. SURPRISES LOCAL SPORTS Who Looked Upon It as Cer tain That Wilmot Had the Pium. Ci(i> \.go, Nov. 30.—Chicago had no Show for the vacaucy made l>y Cite oust ing el the Sioux City c'.ub iii the West ern league. The adjourned meeting of the league was held at the 'Fremont house, ;mn St. Paul was admitted, the Franchise going to Charles Coiuiskey, the former cap tain of the Cincinnati Reds. There were threw applicants for the franchise at st. Paul, besides representatives from Columbus. Chicago made no claim for the vacancy. The business of i.he old league was wound up at the meeting. At noon tonioi row the reor ganized league, with St. PauL will hoid its meeting, and the schedule will be outlined for the coming season. Those present at today's meeting were Presi dent I}. to. Johnson? Cincinnati; Walter Wilmol. St. Paul; G. E. Ellis, Grand Rapids; B. A. Long, Toledo; James Mauuiug, Kansas City, and John S. Barnes and .James Murpby, represent ing Minneapolis. It was a matter of considerable sur prise in St Taut last night when news came that Charlie Comiskey had re ceived the. Si. Paul franchise from the Western league, it was generally sup posed, with the general unanimity of sentiment in his favor and the backing he had, that Walter Wilmot would be able to pluck the persimmons. That ho lias not done so will b<; a treat disap pointineiit to his many friends, who have looked upon Wilmot as almost in vincible and a sure winner in the mat ter. However, now that Iho eagerly sou., prize has been taken by Comis key, he will not find lacking that spirit which will be necessary to the success of the enterprise. He is a good man in the place and one with an un tarnished reputation. He is well known in the base ball world for his long con nection with the famous Browns, of St. Louis, as captain nut! first baseman. At present lie is with the Cincinnatis. St. Paul has good cause for self-congratu lation in mat a franchise has been se cured. As to the timber of which the club will be formed, that matter is per fectly safe in the hands of Charlie Co in is key. lIKIVINU t'l.LB IN LINK. Will Speed Horses on Ice of the Itiver.

Guatemala; Nov. 20.— The projected Central American union has fallen through now as before, when attempted, and even Key ha Barrios, who was most anxious to carry out this scheme to satisfy his personal ambition, considers the union impossible to be carried oat. The state of affairs in Nicaragua; Honduras and San Salvadpr is most critical just now. In Nicaragua discontent is most general, and it be cotuea more so by the exile of Gen. CM Us, ,vho arrived here a few days ago. and everybody predictsTbe early break ing cult of a revolution against Presi dent Zelaya. Honduras has just adopted a new constitution, and Bonilla has had him self elected president and his brother vice president^ but the presence of ex- President Vasquez in Costa liica is con sidered a standing menace to Bonilla. who is surrounded with enemies who are plotting his overthrow. San Salvador is about to pass through an electoral crisis, and the greatest dis cord exists ainoiiK the leaders of the ex isting govern ji there. Losses suf fered during the last revolution,, the exactions of which the foreigners com plain, and the hatred existing between the different parties make the situation on« of the utmost tension. Here in Guatemala the ffnanacial sit uation is verging on rain, and the ques tion pending with Mexico causes alarm among all different classes of society. An alarm which increases daily, and which is endangering all the business and other interests more so the longer the settlement is delayed. Loss, $350,000. Big JaflYey & Co.

Delmonico's the Scene of the Chamber of Commerce's Annual Dinner. NOTED PEOPLE PRESENT. Comptroller Eckels, Ex-Sec retary Fairchild and Oth ers Present. POLITICS WAS THE THEME. The Banquet the Greatest in Point of Attendance Ever Given by the Chamber. New Yoi:k. Nov. '20.— The 138 th an nual dinner of the Chamber of (^;m nterceof New York was given tonight at P.-imonico's. These »banquets hnve usually been devoted to ihe discussion of trade and commerce, but the theme of the speakers upon the present occa sion was "iJood (ioverninent." There was a general rejoicing on the pare of the speakers because of the re sult of the recent elections iv New York city. The dinner was one of the largest in point of attendance in the history of the chamber, more than three hundred guests having bc-en in attendance. The large banquet hall was never more elaborately decorated, white the wails were heaped with clusters of roses. Rioted iinests. At the president's table were, in ad dition to Alexander E. Orr, the presi dent of the chamber of commerce, who presided, James 11. Eckels, comptroller of the currency; James S. T. Straua - hun, William 11. Webb, Samuel D. Babcock, Maj. Gen. Nelson A. Miles, Rev. Dr. E. 8. Starrs, of Brooklyn, William L. Stroug, major-elect of New York; Chasles S. Smith, Prince- Ruspoli, mayor of rtome; Hear Admiral Henry Erben. Murat Kalstead and Hor ace White Among others present were Senator Calvin S. Brice. Henry W. Cannon, Gen. Horace Porter, L. Edwaid Simmons, Johnson Ciaiiin, Samuel Thomas, ex- Secretary Charles S. Fairchild, den. Ansou G. HcCook, Georae J. Gould, William Brooklield, Congressman Isa dor Straus, Congressman Warner Mil ler, John D. Crimmins and others- The opening address -was made by the president of the chamber of com merce, Alexander E. Orr, who dwelt upon national, state and municipal poli ties. He declared that the financial and commercial skies were clearing. Hr.Oir touched upon the various causes that bad been attributed as re sponsible for the hard times, and said that the menace to the growth and prosperity of the country ilia not come from strikes, social disorders, financial embarrassments or tariff complications, but from the tendency to venal and in competent legislation which tends to paralyze the moral force of the nation. Sooner or later the country will be driven by force of circumstances to understand, and the lesson is' coining more rapidly than is realized, that the only sure method of warding off these seasons of distress, these periods of national antriush, is to hold individual interests far enough off to enable an enlargement of the moral vision, and see to it that only men of tried integ rity, capacity and patriotism are sent as representatives to legislative halls or appointed to municipal offices. Ex-President Charles S. Smith made a speech In which he declared that prior to the recent elections business men Dad brought money to him in his capac ity as a member of the committee of seventy, and that many of them were tearful to let their names become known, reasoning that in the event ot a Tammany victory they would be perse cuted in their business. Mr. Smith congratulated the. chamber upon the fact that the era of intimidation had passed, and expressed his conti dent that New York city's government would now be administered on busi ness methods. 4 icvelaud's Regrets. A letter of regret from President Cleveland was read, in which the presi dent says: "It would give me great pleasure to accept this courteous invita tion if it were possible for me to do so; but the demands upon my time are such that i feel obliged to decline. 1 am none the le.^s indebted, however, for ihe thouszhtfulness and regard of which thin favor in advance." Rev. Farkhurst. who was expected to sp'-ak, wrote that iliness prevented his attendance. His letter was in part as follows: "it is with feeiinK akin to impatience that 1 find iuj^elt forbiddeu to meet with you in acceptance of your kind invitation on tliu occasion of your an nual festival. Your annual dinner synchronizes so closely with events that mark an epoch in our municipal history that it must be that the occasion will be an influence operating deteuninatively uuou the future ami helping to set the pace of men's opinions and actions in the time to come. It was in response to a demand emanating from the chamber of comiubico that there was sent from Albany the committee that has made possible the victory of November 6, and it is no small degree to be credited to promiuenti and influential mem bers of the chamber that events have been guided and opinions shaped ill a way to lead to the position of splen did possibility that, as citizens of an emancipated city,we now occupy. It is germane to the genius of the chamber of commerce to have it mentioned that the tid« of sentiment which has so re cently struck and overwhelmed the enemy, is one of non-part'san and non political devotion to the common inter ests. All industrial and social condi tions, all nationalities, men of all reli gious and political faith, have combined lor the overthrow of municipal misrule, and for the establishment of a govern ment by men whose characters com mend themselver to the popular intelli gence and conscience. "The Triunipli of Mot. 6 was a protest against dirty politics, and now Hie following up the results of that victory must continue to be a protest against the interferenea of small and pettifogging politics. The town is* now in a situation to plant deep for itself the foundation of au honorable and dig uiiied municipal life, and it is our duty, as men who are * responsible both for the present and tor the future, to watch day limes and lie awake nights in jeal ous exclusion from that foundation of any element that may work contracting ly and dwarhngly upon superstructure that may be raised upon it. 1 speak" upon this matter with Reeling ami em phasis, because the experience of the past three years has taught me that the semi-reputable chicanery is a great deal more dangerous than cover the de pravity, and that a decent man who thinks in a small orbit •is capable of vastly more mischief than a man who tracks over the whole horizon with marks of ingenious rascality. New York city now has its destiny iv its own hands, God and the right have made her su perbly victorious. It remains now to avail of our victory in Uu> same broad and thorough spirit or promise in which the victory was wou. Half measures and half-men are an insult to the occasion. 4, wisdom wiser than that of man has guided our city, and a stronger strength than that of man lias beeii its empowerment. It is harder to use victory than it is to win it; but his tory is making; the best eneraies of the best men are enlisted, and faith in God, in our services, and in one another may safely be trusted to complete the work begun." Maj. Gen. Schofield in sending his re grets said that the influence, for good of the chamber of commerce was felt, not only in New York, but all over the; country. "The political action of the citizens or association," the general 1 continued "in ordinary times of peace; is determined by their visible present' 5 interests. Their Interests which ar« more or less remote or contingent re- 1 .ceive littte consideration from them or from their representatives in congress.; Only a small fraction of the people of' this country are so circumstanced as to have before them at all times the vital necessity of adequate security tor tiailt and commerce. War brings out patri otic sentiment everywhere, but in peuce the great mass of citizens have little time, to think of anything but their own local and present interests." Letters ot" regret were also received from Vice President Stevenson, Chiet Justice Fuller, Secretaries Carlisle and Gresham, Speaker Crisp, Senator Sher man. Very Rev. S. Reynolds Hole, dean of Rochester, and tliu Earl of Aberdeen, governor general of Canada, and others. (Jen. Nelson A. Miles responded to the toast "The Army." Rev. Dr. Storrs to "The City as a Power in the Coming Civilization." Mayor-Elect Strong to "The Mandate of the I'eople to Their Rulers." Admiral Erben to "The Navy." The last speaker was Hon. James H. Eckels, comptroller of the currency, who touched on the financial situation. He said that the secretary of tiiu treas ury is at tha present time confronted with a situation unique in the history uf finance, but lie was sure that the "ad ministration would acquit itself credit ably.

ORKATEST OF KIISSIAN PlAN lvrs AND * OTH'OMOICS, St. Paul's Leading Musicians 1<: riaueUiitimates Upon Rubin stein* Rank. St. PETEitsmnto, Nov. 20.—Anton Grogor Rubinstein, the celebrated Rus sian pianist and computer, died today ot heart disease at Peterhof, near this city. Rubinstein was born at Wnich 'w'otynetz, on the; frontier of Roumauia, Nov. 30, 18:>0. As a child, he was taken to Moscow and studied the piano under Alexis Villoing. His first appearance in public was made when he was only eight years of age. At ten years Ru binstein went with his teacher to Paris, where lie remained foe two years, his .performance at several concerts'win ning for him the advice and encourage* ment of Liszt. Rubinstein next visited England, Sweden and Germany, and in Berlin tie studied composition under Dehu. Having completed his course of instruction, Rubinstein de voted himself tor some time to teaching iv Berlin, and later to teaching in Vi enna. He returned to Russia Inter on, and was appointed pianist to the Grand Duchess Helena. Subsequently he be came director of the musical concerts of the Russian Musical|!society. Hubin sioin visited the United States in 1572-O. Among the dead composer's operas are "l)imitri Donskoi," "Les Chasseurs Siberiens," "La Vengeance," Tom Le Fou," "Les Enfitnts dcs Bruisers," "Lalla Rookh." "Nero," and "iven Kalashonkoif." The jubilee of Ruben stein's public service was celebrated in St. Petersburg on Nov. 18, 1869. Since 1807 Rubonstein has held no office, spending his time in traveling and com posing. In 1809 Alexander II ennobled the composer, and in 1877 France dec orated him with the cross of the Legion of Honor. "So Rubinstein is dead!" exclaimed Prof. Oberhoffer last eveniug. '-Well, well! I remember hearing him when I was a student in Munich tcu years ago. As a pianist he was greater than us a composer, yet no pianist of recent time has composed as wcl! as lie. In his performances he took a middle place between Liszt and Yon liulow. He in cluded the subjective intellectuality of the latter with much of the emotional tendency of the former. His touch was like velvet, and he never pounded his instrument; yet when needed he could display great force. "Yes," continued the professor, as he knocked the ashes oft' his ehcar with one of Clementine's sonatas, "he was a wonderful pianist, and a treat composer as well, yet it was generally believed tiiat he composed too much. Pages of really immortal music appear in his works side by side with pages of stuff almost rubbish. His operas—except, perhaps, his sacred ones—were not very successful; they had only a succes d' estime. Being a Jew, he was rather a bitter rival of Wagner, who had writ ten against the Hebrews, and though his works were evidently influenced by Wagner's harmonies, ho seemed to compose operas almost to spite Wagner. "His shorter pieces, his piano pieces, like the 'Ronuwiza in E Hat and the famous 'Melody in F,' are, 1 think, much his best work. His orchestral compositions, too, such as his 'Ocean Symphony,' are far ahead of his operas. Yes. 1 should sayithat Rubinstein was of the romantic school and somewhat resembled Mendelssohn, lie did uuch for hussian music. He founded ami always controlled the St. Petersburg conservatory, and with Glinka and Tschaikowsky he gave a great impetus to hLs national school of composers. For at ieast twenty-live years he stood at ihe head of the school, too. "He had tew pupils. Joseph Hoffman, the celebrated prodigy, was one, and Sophie Menter—she's the greatest pi anist of Germany, without doubt, at present—is another. "His face was much likeßeethoven's. Generosity, especially towards strug gling musicians, was one of bis notice able traits. Sea voyages were Ins hor tor. They havi been trying to get him to come over to New York to produce one ot his works, but he wouldn't con sent. Of late he has played chiefly for charity, and to interpret his own com positions, which he said the public didn't understand." D. F. Colville said that he heard the great Russian some twenty years ago in St. Louis. "lie, appeared with Vieux temp?, the violinist, and they performed a marvelous concerto. It was wonder ful! Such intensity! Yet ne didn't seem to touch the keys but very softly, though, as a matter of fact, he frequent ly broke the strings. It was a very good piano that could stand Itubin stein's playful touch. 1 remember, too. that Ludwig—that Irish baritone with the German name —made a great hit here in St. Paul a few years ago in Rubiustein's 'Nero.' I always admired that opera, although most of his are not very agreeable, especially where iie has tried to introduce the Russian clement. He was a eouceited old fellow, and was quite convinced that all his operas were better than Wagner's. One of his odd traits was his dislike of public ap plause, a failing, you know, that isn't much shared by the rest of the musical world." •Tin in a dreadful hurry, and I'll lave to catch this car; but." added F.mil Straka, "I did near Rubenstein when 1 was a student at the conserva tory in Prague, and 1 was perfectly de lighted with his extraordinary expres sion and iiis easy technique. Ilia or chestral compositions have always been tavorites ot mine." O'"It was at Chicago, in 1872, that 1 card Rubeustein play, with violin ac hompauiment, the great march from the 'Ruins of Athens,' by Beethoven, slated Prof. Titcoiub.
