Day for Sport on the
Gives an Exhibition of Fancy
Skating—Re.very of Como's
Never did Lake Como hold such a
crowd as that which gathered yesterday
to take advantage of the excellent ice
and watch with awe and admiration the
wonderful exhibition; of Miss Mable
Davidson. Every' one was there, from
the wee tot just learning to stand erect
on her skates to the staid business man,
who forgot his cares in the exhilarating
exercise. Young girls with happy,
laughing faces and bright gowns gave a
charming touch of color to the ever
moving throng, and every now and then
sat down with surprised little "(Jus,"
only to get up again and try it over.
Five thousand people were on the ice
duriug the afternoon, and each car that
arrived from the city brought a fresh
batch of pleasure-seekers, who were
soou whirling away on their keen blades,
and in a moment swallowed up in the
constantly moving throng that covered
the surface of the lake.
When Miss Davidson emerged from
her dressing room in her short red skat
teg habit and natty buff ltggins, set off
by a jaunty little wnite mortar-board
cap, and started for the western corner
of the lake, the vast throng was close at
her heels aud formed a large circle in
which the graceful little woman exe
cuted marvelous pirouettes, single and
double grapeviues, corkscrew whirls,
figure eights, flying threes, rolls and
footspins and numerous other intricate
figures. It was a splendid exhibition,
and satisfied every one that Miss Mabel
has v clear title to champion fancy skat
er of the world. At last, tired out, she
retired to her dressing room and took a
well-earned rest.
"It's a good thing, fmsh it along,"
said Charles Ross, of the Passing Show
company, as Gus Pixley fastened
on a pair of skates and
left the shore behind him.
1 he crowd thought so, too,
for they pushed it along and Gus sat
down. Willing hands helped him to
his feet, but it was no use, Gus was not
in a skating mood; in fact, he said he
was tired, so at every few stru*".-> he
sat down and rested. He was Mfcially
induced to give an exhibition » * the
backward roll, from which he was res
cued in the nick of time by Eddie Mur*
phy, who bore him to the shore and
deposited him in a limp condition on
the bench In the warming-room. Lucy
Daly and her band of pickaninnies were
there, and
Raced and Romped*
and tripped people up, and had a glori
ous time generally, and kept everybody
in a state of wild apprehension by their
numerous antics and xpirit of mischief.
Round and round, in and out between
the legs of the skaters they darted, mak
ing the ice ring with their screams of
laughter. Everybody enjoyed them
selves hugely, and did not mind a few
collisions and tumbles. As it grew dark
the crowd began to thin out, and when
6 o'clock came the thousands had
dwiudled away to hundreds, who looked
weird and uncanny eliding along in the
increasine dusk. Soon the ice was given
up to a score or more couples, who
elided over the smooth surface hand in
hand, seemingly oblivious of everything
and everybody, so wrapped up were
they in each other.
' But an old man with long gray fide
whiskers stood on the shore, with his
hands clasDed in riontof him. in deep
thought. Ever and anou his eyes would
scan the wide expanse of ice and then
return to the ground, from which he
had raised them. As the last couple
took off their skates and started city
ward, he was heard to murmur:
Ye who seek the shores of Como
VV'ben the winter wii.dt. are blowing,
Give a thought to him who fathered
This vast scheme—this wondrous projact.
Tell your children, when they aslt you
In the years beyond the gloaming.
What reward had beeu requested
By the man whoi-e mighty labors
Turned the dry land into water.
That ihc father of Lake Como
Stood and watched tbe merry skaters
As they glided o'er the surface
Ot the water he had placed there,
Aud was satisfied bis labors
Rich reward would surely brinß him
in the laud beyond the sunset.
In the laud of the hereafter.

A Calendar Worth Having.
.Almostevery one has use fora cal
endar, and, by the same token, they

A calendar that you have to study or
'•set" has little excuse forexistuuce.' -
The one we like best of all is that
published by N. W. Ayer & Son, the
Newspaper. Advertising Agents ot
Philadelphia. j
The handsome copy for 1895 carries
on its seal their famous motto, "'Keep
ing Everlastingly At it Brings Success,"
which will alone each day be worth to
all who use it far more than the price
of the calendar. The size la generous.,
and the work a beautiful specimen of
the printers' art. Each day, as is be
coming to such an important slice of
time, is printed large enough to be read
across a room. Then,too, the matter oil
the flaps deals with a subject in which
there is a growing general interest. '
That the demand for this calendar in
creases each year, we can easily under
stand, for we do not believe that any
one who has spent one year iv company
with it will be willing to spend another
without it.
The price is 25 cents, deliveied every

E. V. Sm alley Is Named —Nomina-
tions for Other Offices—Speech
by Dr. Cooway.
At a meeting: of the St. Paul Press
club, held in the club rooms yesterday,
the following nominations were made:
For president, Dr. Con way and E. V.
Smalley; for tirst vice president, Conde
Hamliu. Col. Listoe and John King;
for second vice president, John F.Baker
and Judge Klandrau; for financial sec
retary, C. P. Stove; for recording sec
retary, L. B. linot; for treasurer, A.M.

Listoe. H. A. Castle, U. W. vVack, Dr.
Conwav. C. F.Brisiey.Stephen Couday.
Dr. Conway withdrew his name from
the nominations for president, and in
doing m spoke substantially as follows:
Some one said that he believes in ro
tation of office. Sodol. Huxley be
lieved in the survival of the fittest. So
do I. Every man who ever hope to
achieve any good thinks tiiat he hlmelf
Is the fittest. lam do exception to this
rule. But as ray belief in the rotation
of office is stronger than any faith in
the survival of the fittest, 1 must ask
the gentlemen of the Press club to per
mit me to retire to private life.
The stale editorial association has a
rule to the effect that its president must
uot hold office during two successive
years. The rule works like a charm.
Anything which will work like a charm
for the Press Club of St. Paul should be
heartily welcomed by all of us. The
club has passed through a very difficult
year. When the present administra
tion came into office we were encum
bered with a heavy debt, not through
any fault of our predecessors, but be
onuse tbeir outlay was greater than
their income. Thanks to the admirable
ability of our executive committee this
debt has been wiped out; unnecessary
expenses have been curtailed, the club
has been put upon a self-sustaining
basis, aud new and elegaut club rooms
have been secured.
Notwithstanding the financial prob
lem which confronted us, the various
committees have found time to develop
the fraternal, the social, and the in
tellectual aspects of the club. The
way in which the St. Paul Press club
fraternities with that ot Minneapolis is
an example well worthy of imitation on
the part of other organizations in these
two cities. We all look back with
pleasure to the splendid banquet given
in the educational district ot this city,
and presided over with such graceful
dignity by the chaiunan of the commit
tee of conference with the Minneapolis
club. There were present on that occa
sion the members of the St. Paul and of
the Minneapolis Press clubs, the gov
ernor of Minnesota and his staff, tne
president of our state university, repre
sentatives of the various educational
institutions, and three hundred other
The social side of our club was pre
sented to viaw under very favorable
ausplcas at the commencement of the
year, when the club tendered a recep
tion to Henry Waterson, of the Louis
vile Courier-Journal.
During the ye*r we have had many
"literary evenings" which were highly
appreciated by the iuvited tuests, as
well as by the members of the club.
"The last time I was over in Europe 1
was asked what Benjamin Harrison aid
when ha retired from the White house
and what (irover Cleveland did on re
tiring from office. My querists were
surprised and delighted when 1 told
them that Mr. Harrison gave law lect
ures in the Lelaud Stanford university,
and that Mr. Cleveland opened a law
office in New York. They could hardly
realize Mutt the presidents of the great
est republic in the world could, when
their terms of office had expired, under
take the honorable duties of private
citizens. I beg leave to follow in the
distance the example set by the heads
of the nation. 1 hnve tried to serve the
club in the capacity of president: 1
beg leave no»v to be permitted to show
that 1 can serve It as a private member.
Thanking you again for your courtesy,
you will permit me to withdraw my
name as candidate' for the presidency.

For Half of the Two Per Cent

'vesh vIhbSV cies. : M
Blue Coats Are Coming to
Take Part in the War
This afternoon the coppers will con
vene at Arion hall and proceed to per
fect a state organization of the paid
police for the purpose of .securing the
passage of a bill by the legislature cre
ating an insurance fund for their bene
fit. The fund to which the policeman
insist that they are entitled is uuc-half
of the 2 per cent tax levied by the state
on all foreign insurance companies do
ing business in Minnesota. As before
stated, the paid tire departments all
over the state have for several years re
ceived one-half of this 2 per cent
tax. The policemen believe they are
equally entitled to a similar provision
They point to the nature of their du
ties in support of their claim. As a rule
they give the first alarms of fire, aud
frequently extinguish flames before the
fire department appears on the scene,
and in any event they render the tire
department indispensable assistance at
the most critical times.
At present tue policemen are not ade
quately protected iv case of sickness or
disaoility, nor are their widows and
children sufficiently provided tor in case
of death. In this city the pension fuml,
as regulated by the charter.
Itt Not Adequate.
In case of the death of an officer his
widow's pension does not exceed $400 a
year, aud after an oflicer is retired he
oannot draw over halt»pay.
What the coppers waut is a fund suf
ficiently large to iusure their lives in a
reasonable sum. and also to provide
them with a satisfactory indemnity
when sick or disabled.
As outlined in yesterday's Globe,
considerable opposition to the move
ment is expected. It is thought that
the fire department of this city will fight
it, though there seems to be no good
reason for opposition from that quarter,
as the St. Paul department's insurance
fund already amounts to about $80,000.
Th« Minneapolis tire department has
promised to lend its assistance to the
police of that, city in their efforts to se
cure the enactment of the proposed law..
The meeting this afternoon will prac
tically be a state convention. Besides
members of the Minneapolis and Hi.
Paul departments, there will be dele
gates present from Duluth, Winona,
Stillwater, Mankato, St. Cloud, ' Red
Wing and Fereus Falls. Minneapolis
will be ' represented by Chief Smith,
Captains BuferdiiiK and Ness and Of
ficer Kerr. Duluth will probably send
Chief Armstrong, Detective Hayden,
ana other leading officers, and Chief
Smith, of Stillwater, and Chief Beaudet,
of Winona, are expected to attend th*»
meeting. Sergeant Zirkelbach, Lieut.
Walsh, Lieut. Budy and a number! of
other officers, will represent the St.
Paul police department.
The meeting will .undoubtedly prove
lively and interesting. The by-laws,
part of which were framed Saturday
afternoon, will be completed and a def
inite plan of procedure decided upon
and put into execution.
But, whatever methods of suasion the
coppers will employ to Influence legis
lation, it is certain that the St. Paul
coppers will not attempt to bribe legis
lators with any portion of their Novem
ber salaries.
Chief Jackson, of the fire department
when seen last eveniug, declined to say
anything for publication. From the
ttsnor of the chief's remarks, however,
it would not appear trial the tiremen are
at all concerned about the matter one
way or another, so long as no attempt is
made to interfere with their share of
the tax.

Or. White Discusses the Catholic
Nashville. Term., Dec. 30.—Dr. C.
R. White, supreme keeper of records
and seals, Knights of Pythias, in an in
terview concerning the order and the
recent papal edict, s«ys: "It seems
that it is a matter in which each in
dividual must settle for himself, and 1
take it that each Catholic Knight of
Pythias will have to settle with himself
the comparative ties binding him to tho
absolute obeyance of the temporal de
crees of the pope or the tics that bind
Ifnn to his fraternity. I presume the
effect may be different in various local
ities. The devout Catholic, who thinks,
that every wish of the pnpe must be
sacredly observed, will feel he must
withdraw. Conversely, the man who
consider! himself his own master; in.,
worldly atiairs will remain in the order
if lie is devoted to its uriuciples. 1 have.
talked with several local Catholic:
Kniiihts of Pythias concerning Hie
question, and th«y all say they intend,
to remain in the order. '1 his pronounce
ment of the pope against the Knlghtd of
Pythias comes, 1 believe, from the ad
vanced and pronounced requirements of
our order. The supreme lodge has de
creed that each member must be loyal
to the government under which he lives
in preference to all oilier allegiance.
You can see where that would fail to
please the pope."
