To the Gallows Used' for Hanging*
-Ermiseli and *\Yoni*-;keit.
Sheriff De Frate, of Alexandria, is a
rival claimant for the trap and stakes
on which the Barrett boys met their
doom, which are now packed away in
the Ramsey county jail. He says that
- in ISS9 he had the gallows, trap, stakes
and. other necessary paraphernalia
made.to order for the execution of John
Lee, which took place in Alexandria
Feb.. 15, ISS9. The trap and stakes
were then loaned to Sheriff Ege, and
were.- set up for the hanging of the
Barrett boys by Christ Sperl, their
maker. They were returend again to
Alexandria, from whence . they were
afterward taken to Redwood county
for the Rose execution, and last win-
ter loaned to Charles E. Chapel, of
Ramsey county, for the hanging of
Ermisch and Wonigkeit.
In.. all events where it has officiated
the trap has worked without a hitch,
and can, therefore, be depended on to
do Us duty toward Harry Hayward.
But Sheriff De Frate insists that it can-
not be used here without his full con-
sent, which-, will * probably, be forth-
coming when the occasion arises.
X P. Clarke's Creditors Will Take
."it Cents on the Dollar.
It is stated on good authority that
the creditors of N. P. Clarke & Co.
have at last agreed upon a basis of
settlement, and that tlie settlement will
be effected -dime ' time this week. A
number of meetings have been held
lately which developed considerable
opposition to Mr. Clarke's proposition
to settle for GO cents on the dollar, the
Northwestern National bank being par-
ticularly opposed to a compromise.
The bank, it is now said, will agree to
a settlement on the basis of 50 cent*?
on the dollar subject to the following
arrangement: The payment of 30 cents
on the dollar within sixty or ninety
days, the same to be guaranteed by
two responsible men, N. P. Clarke to
give his notes running for one, two
and three years for the remainder. ,
Wilbur's Opera and "Piethres.!''
The Wilbur opera company will be-
gin its farewell week at the Grand to-
morrrow evening with a production of
"Dorothy," which has seldom been pre-"
sented in this city at popular prices.
The Wilburs played to a phenomenally
large business last week, and won gen-*
era! approval for the satisfactory man-
ncr in which the several changes of
bill -were rendered. Perhaps the great-
est _ feature was the "Living Pictures,"
which made a hit of greater propor
tions than anything shown on the lo
cal stage in years. For the coming
week there will be an entire new edition
of pictures. There will be the usual 25
- matinees Tuesday, Thursday and
Saturday, with the complete picture
production at each.

First ward taxpayers are ang:y, and
First ward taxpayers are angry,* and
as usual with East sideis when they
have a grievance, they held a meet-
ing* last night to discuss ways and
means for righting their wrongs. .-The
meeting was- held at St. Anthony of
Padua hall, and was attended by a
considerable contingent of property
owners from the section between
Fourth street northeast and the river.
The trouble is all over that assess-
ment for the grade crossings on Main
street and Second avenue northeast.
The same thing was up last fall, and
the commission was then instructed
by the council on street grades and
additions to revise the list in more
equitable shape. They have been at
it all winter, and the revised list,
which has just been published, is the
fruit of their labors. But it doesn't
suit the gentlemen who met last night
at all. In fact, they say it is no bet-
ter than the first one, and now they
propose to throw it out entirely, which
will probably cause the entire damage
to be drawn from the general fund,
instead of being raised on assessments
on East side lots.
The meeting was called by John T.
McGowan, the well-known ex-alder-
man and East side real estate man.
who appointed a committee of five,
consisting of John T. McGowan, John
Mahoney, Patrick Daly and William
Hoy. This committee will : consult
Monday with attorneys as to the legal
status of the case, and the best plan
for action, and will report at .another
meeting to be held Monday night at
the same place, which will take some
definite action. The assessment comes
before the council next Friday night
for confirmation, and every effort will
be made to have it rejected. If this
fails, the matter will probably be car-
ried into the courts and fought. on the
ground that the assessment is contrary

of America. The platform and parts
of the adjoining galleries were occu-
pied by the members of the- grand
chorus, 300 in number. The ladies, most
of them dressed in white, were placed
in front, thus forming a most pleasing
picture. The auditorium 'was a sea of
human faces. There' were at least
2,400 persons present.
Musically, as well as in all other re-
spects, the concert was a success. The
enthusiasm of the audience proved it
better than anything else. According
to the puritan ideas of" the members
of the church body under whose aus-
pices the concert was given, it was
hardly proper to applaud in a church.
During the whole first part
of the programme only the rust-
ling of the thousand fans dis
turbed the quiet reigning be-
tween the numbers. But as the con-
cert went on it became more and more
difficult to keep back the growing en-
thusiasm. And after Prof. Lindbergh
rendening of Liszt's "La Campanella"
• it could not be kept back any longer,
a storm of irresistible applause start-
ling the vast audience.

John V. (rum and Hit) Great 'Work
Against the Eastern College
'"i^ Cracks."/ -y '..•!'. -' ■■-'■' '; y-'-'** \-y y -
. When | John V. Crum, of the Uni
versity 'of lowa, announced his inten
tion of competing at the annual inter-
collegiate championships \ near New
York with the idea of winning the 100
; and 220 yard dashes, derisive . smiles
« played about the features of the crack
Eastern college sprinters.' They are
not smiling derisively now, - however,
for Crum captured both events in fast
-time and is the hero of the. hour. Crum
won the 100-yard dash with' ease in 10
seconds, with W. W. Richards, Yale,
second, E. S. Ramsdell, University
of Pennsylvania, third. The winner's
time equals the intercollegiate record,
held jointy by Luther Cary, of Prince-
ton, and E. .S. Ramsdell, of the Uni
versity of Pennsylvania, and the col-
legiate record, held jointy by E. J.
Wendell, C. H. Sherrill, Wendell Ba
: ker, L. H. Cary and E. S. Ramsdell.
It is also only one-fifth of a second
behind the world's record, held by
John Owens, of Detroit. .'•.''
! The 220 was captured with the same
ease. Crum defeated Richards by six
feet ' and Ramsdell by. nine feet in 22
seconds, but the watch held . by Bob
Stoll, the veteran timer, credited Crum
"with 213-5 seconds, and the fact that
the third timer failed to get his watch
going probably robbed the young
lowan of a new world's record. As it
- :;:..- ' -:-:>
was, ne equaled the best college rec
ord for the distance.
Crum is not embarrassed by the pro
test that has been filed against him,
and feels that it will easily be lifted.
The protest is on the alleged ground
that he is not attending school, and
that he is a professional. Crum gradu
ates from the law department of lowa
university .this year. He is a member
of the Chicago Athletic association and
is on the executive committe for the
Western intercollegiate meet. He is
neither too light nor too stout. His.
height is five feet eight and three-quar
ters inches, and he has trained down
this spring from 180 ton 165 pounds.
He seams to be a natural born sprin
ter, and even when winning from such
famous men as Richards and Rams
dell, he gave the impression that in
every fininsh he still had "something
up his sleeve."
In speaking of the protest lodged
against Crum, the New York Press re
marks editorially: "We are sure that
if the proper committer had done its
duty and found out who Crum was,"
this never, never would have happened.
Some good reason would have been
found to keep Crum out, just as, nearly
twenty years ago, good reasons were
found to break up the intercollegiate
regatta when upstart Cornell and little
Wesleyan had developed such impu
dent speed. What are college lawyers
for except to keep Crums out of such
contests to save the public and post
graduate mind the shock of seeing
first prizes going anywhere except
where -they belong— is to say, to
Yale, Harvard, Princeton and occa.
sionally the University of Pennsylva
nia?" - ___________ . *
Hamilton Sets a Terrific Pace and
Is an Aftmitic "Wonder.
One of the great oarsmen in the crew
that Cornell has sent across the big
pond to compete against the best
oarsmen of Europe in the Henley re
gatta is Ralph B. Hamilton, who oc
cupies seat No. 8 in the shell and sets
the stroke for his fellow oarsmen.
The Cornell stroke, or the Courtney
stroke, as it is sometimes called, in
honor of Charles Courtney, the vet
eran coach of the college, is a short,
quick one, with very little slide. Ham
ilton has thoroughly learned this
stroke and possesses such quickness
and strength that it is said he is able
to make the crew peg along for fully
a mile rowing at the enormous rate
of forty-eight strokes per minute.
Forty-eight, however, is by no means
Hamilton's limit, for at times 'he car
ries the crew along at fifty-two
strokes per minute. If the Cornell
crew can row the mile and 500 yards
a.gainst the sluggish Thames at such
a pace, they will be difficult men to
beat when they battle for the grand
challenge cup in July. .-:-y ,' >
Hamilton is a resident of Saginaw,
Mich. .. He is ..twenty years of age,
weighs '165 "pounds "and is 5 feet Sy2'
inches tall. He is a junior in mechani
cal engineering at Cornell and has had
considerable experience as an oars-
man. He* stroked his freshman crew
and was also one of the crack men in
last year's varsity - crew. He is a
graduate of the Saginaw high school
and is a member of the class of '96 at
; Hamilton has rowed in so many ex
citing races and is such a sturdy, po\v*4
erful oarsman that it is hardly likely
he will go to pieces the way the Cor
nell stroke did when the college was
represented abroad by a four-oared
crew in 1881. This crew was beaten
in the Henley regatta by the crew
of the London Rowing club by the
narrow margin of half a boat's
length. The Cornellians then went to
Vienna and rowed over a three-mile
course against the Vienna crew. The
Americans made a runaway race of it
and were turning the stake boat a
quarter of a mile ahead when the
stroke man fainted, and Cornell thus
lost the race. '. . " '- - -

Many aristocratic I parties have al-
ready been made up for the racing at
Ascot Heath, which will begin on
Tuesday next and last until Friday,
inclusive. There will be assembled
Britain's noblest and richest, and
small fortunes will change hands daily
in the wholesale betting which will
take place almost within sight of*
Windsor castle. All will be out in
force, and no doubt Nazrulla Khan,*
the Afghan prince who has been feted
and petted until the very mention of
his name to the sober-minded citizen
is almost nauseating, will be there
in all his half-savage glory. There is.
.the usual row about tickets of admis
sion to the royal enclosure. The Con-.'
servatives assert that Ascot .suffers-
terribly in its former, exelusiveness on-
account of the Liberals being in pow
er, as the master of the buckhounds,-
Lord Ribblesdale, who has charge of-
such matters, is obliged, it is claimed;"*:
to admit the wives and families of his
Radical supporters. , These conditions
on which a ticket 'of- admission into

Heath contains the following clause:.
"If the holder is defauted in respect to*
the stakes, forfeit or bets on horse,
racing or has been guilty of any fraud-
ulent practice on the turf, or any mat-**
ters connected with it, or shall display-*!
or make use 'of any stool, color, pay
or number, badge or other' device for
the purpose of betting or taking mo*v*jy *
in advance, or make bets "past !£&;
post," his ticket will 'be forfeited and
he will be expelled from the stand and
enclosure/without having any claim to
the return of the money' paid for nYs''
ticket." But there are people- who do
not look upon j: *-'*'
as a great honor. Vanity Fair, . fo**c .

to be one of such a mixed and

has made the greatest impression on
the shah zada's mind. He was most
cordially received by the queen, occu
pied a seat at her side in the pres
ence of the chamber, and won golden
opinions by his behavior and princely
bearing. He gave her majesty a mess-
age from the ameer, expressing the
sincere hope that the good relations
-between the two governments would
be consolidated, and then addressed
similar expressions of his own feeling
which the queen, in the course of a
few words, reciprocated.
' The honor which has been conferred
upon Sir Henry Irving by his knight-
hood has drawn much comment from
all classes of people. The general
feeling is one of satisfaction.

A heavy consignment of American and
Canadian horses was sold here yester-
day. They were much admired, arid
found many buyers. Twenty-sTx
Canadian horses averaged 30 guineas
apiece and twenty-four Canadian
horses, which, were landed from the
steamer Carlisle City a -few days ago,
were sold at the same average price.
Nineteen American horses exported by
W. H. Forrester, of lowa, brought an
'average of 28 guineas "each. .:-.'.:■

Like Richard cf old, Mike Dirnberger
sents to be himself again. In fact, he
seems a little more than himself, for
'"the reason that he recently rode one
and two miles in much better time than
he was capable of in 1893 when he and
little J. P. Bliss, of Chicago, sue-
ceeded in establishing numerous new
r records between 100 yards and two
miles. In that year Dirnberger, paced
by a running horse, rode a flying mile
(n one minute fifty-one seconds, which
'was then the fastest mile ever ridden
en a wheel.. He . also,' held several
> world's records for shorter distances,
and during year demonstrated that
,he was one of the best competition
', riders in America by defeating Bald,
Johnson and nearly every other racing
man of note in America, Zimmerman
excepted. ■
At Fountain Ferry track, Louisville,
very recently Dirnberger rode a flying
.mile in erne minute forty-five seconds,
.Which is Fix seconds better, than- his
first record breaking performance and

two and two-fifths seconds better than
.the new world's record made by John
S. Johnson in Louisville Nov. 21. 1894,
■As Dirnberger was paced by a quad-
ruplet and the time was taken by ex-
perienced handlers of stop watches the
record will doubtless be allowed. The
following day Dirnberger covered two
miles in three minutes fifty-one and
four-fifths seconds, thus clipping near-
ly three seconds from the world's
record of three minutes fifty-four and
three-quarters seconds made by John-
son in Louisville Nov. 24, 1894.
-''Dirnberger is described by an ad-
mirer as "a strawberry blond of great
good nature, combined with fighting
finalities." He is about twenty, years
of age, is five feet eight inches tall,*
weighs 166 pounds and does not smoke
: i p i* drink. Over a year ago he pre-
dieted that a mile in one minute forty-
five seconds was possible with proper
pacing, and a speed of one minute
forty seconds might be reached this

John L. and Dempsey Indulge in
a, Bout to Complete- the En- •
. NEW YORK, June 8. — The big
amphitheater in the Madison Square |
Garden building* was thronged tonight
by thousands of well-wishers and ad-
mirers of the ex-Nonpareil, Jack
Dempsey. Among the spectators were
some of the most noted sporting men
in the United States, while among
the pugilists who took part in the
evening's entertainment were Jim Cor-
bett, Bob Fitzsimmons, J. L. Sullivan,
Peter Maher, George Dixon, Joe
Choynski, Joe O'Donnell, Tommy
Ryan, Jack McAuliffe, Kid Lavigne,
Yung Corbett. Charley and Jerry.
Barnett, of New York, gave a spar-
ring exhibition of three rounds." "Jar-
row," the German strong boy, who is
only eighteen years old and 138 pounds
in weight, performed some startling
feats of strength. After juggling with
a barrel of water weighing 125 pounds,
he" lifted a man weighing 250 pounds
seated on a chair, and then tore two
packs of cards in half. . George Dixon,
of Boston, and Jack Lynch, of Phil-
adelphia, next came into the ring, and
the colored boxer, after making it
very interesting for the Quaker, dur-
ing a three-round exhibition, was
loudly applauded. Joe Choyniski, of
San Francisco, and Bob Armstrong,
colored, of Washington, 10., were the
next to don the gloves for a three-
round exhibition. Jim Hall and Mick
Dunn, both of Australia, were then
introduced and sparred for three
rounds in a lively .manner. * Han'y
Pidgeon, of Chicago, and Kid McCoy,
of Boston, followed in a three-round
exhibition of boxing.
Peter Maher, the Irish champion,
and Pete Burns, of Harlem, were an- \
nounced. They boxed three, friendly (
rounds at a rapid rate.
* Jimmy Young, of Brooklyn, and -
Jack Keefe, of Denver, Col., were the
next pair to exhibit their sparring
abilities, and they were followed by
August W. Johnson, of Brooklyn, and
H. Jalmer Lundin, of Chicago. These
two are well-known "strong men,''
and they toyed with huge dumbbells
and heavy barrels for tea, minutes.
James J. Corbett then made his ap
pearance and was greeted with a
thunder of applause. He sparred
three rounds with John McVey, of
Philadelphia. His every movement
was watched with the keenest inter-
est by the sports, as he has begun
training at Asbury Park, N. J., for
-his coming fight with Bob Fitzsim-
mons. * ....*. .-• - * ..'*'. '.*"" '•-:,
Fitzsimmons was the next, one to
appear in the ring, and his recep
tion was just as hearty as that given
to Corbett. Fitzsimmons sparre*u
j three rounds with Frank Bosworth,
and he left no doubt in the minds of
those who saw' his quick work in the
ring tonight that he had not gone back
anything and will render a good ac-
count of himself when he meets the
The last bout of the evening was
between John L. Sullivan and Jack
Dempsey. When the ex-champion
appeared in the ring the crowd cheered
for several minutes, and there were
cries of "Speech! Speech." John L.
made a short speech, in which he
thanked the audience for their recep
tion, and said he was glad to favor
his old friend Dempsey. He was
sorry the house was not twice the
size, so that a greater number could.
have come to swell the fund for Demp-
sey. Concluding, he said:
"Mr. Dempsey and myself will now
give an exhibition, and we will do the
best we can, although we are two
'has beens.' "
All Doubts of the Big Fight Com-
ing Off Are Removed.
NEW YORK, June B.— Dan Stewart,
of Dallas, Tex., when scan at the Demp-
sey benefit in Madison Square Garden
tonight,, said:
The guarantee money for the ap
pearance of Corbett and Fitzsimmons
in the ring at Dallas next October was
posted this evening, and this removes
all possible doubts of the fight coming
off. I will probably go back to Texas
tomorrow or Monday, and am more
than satisfied with the success I have
met in securing the big event for the
syndicate I represent.
Creedon and Hennessy Matched.
BOSTON, Mass., June B.— Dan Crea-
don, the Australian middleweight, and
Billy Hennessey, of Clinton, 10., were
matched today to meet, at the Suffolk
. club on June 17. The men signed to
fight twenty rounds at 138 pounds.

sary to recall a fact which throws a !
; characteristic light upon the intense I
j parsimony for which the house of Or- j
leans is so justly celebrated. j
It seems that at the funeral of the !
Comte de Paris, when not only the '
princes of the reigning house of Eng- •

house of Europe were assembled to do '
honor to the pretender, as well as ad- '
herents of the Royalist party from j

! had crossed the channel and come long i
distances at their own expense for the [
purpose of paying a tribute of regard j
to the dead man— full restaurant prices i
' were charged to all the guests for the |
luncheon spread out in the dining room j
of the Stowe palace.
Thrift could go no further than this, ;

would be so blind to the laws of
hospitality as to make a money charge I
for food and drink consumed to thotre |

French royalists have good reason j
to fear that in the event of the mar- i
riage festivities taking place at Stowe, j
as the Comtesse de Paris seem? to de- '
sire, they may be called upon to pay
"so much a plate for their presence at !
the wedding breakfast, this in addi

That Is Much More Expensive]
Than Champagne.
Washington Po'rst.
The most expensive wine manufac
tured is not champagne,. as most peo
ple imagine. A "Post reporter, while
dining at one of . the leading restau
, rants in the city, In looking over the
wine list discovered a species which is
j seldom quoted* on a bill ot fare. Ii Is
I a Rhine wine from the "private vine-
yard of Prince Metternleh, and sella
for $S a quart. A wl:u- expert present
said the vineyard is Dn-the' side of a
i hill overlooking the ' Rhine, Which la
not accessible except, to , human' -feet.
As a result all the* work lias to he
i done by hand. The, grapefv have to
be carried down the hill on the shoul
ders of men, and In a like manner
fertilizer has to be transported up the
declivity. The sun . shines on the
vineyard only at certain hours of the
day, and in this way . the grape re-
ceives a flavor that distinguishes the
wine from that of any other Rhine
"Bring us a bottle of Metternich,"
said the wine expert to the waiter.
"Don't be alarmed," he added, In an-
swer to the protest of his friends aa
the waiter disappeared, "there is not
a restaurant in Washington that can
fill the order, I'll guarantee."
The waiter soon returned and whis
pered something into his ear.
"He says he's got some fine Rhine
wine at $1.75 a Quart, but they're just
out of the Metternich brand." said
the wine expert, with a faint smile
"I thought so. Bring us a bottle <>■
