THE WORLD'S RECORD BROKEN
BY JOHN R. GENTRY AND
BETTERED BY OWE SECOND.
TWO TRIALS NEEDED TO ESTAB
LISH THE NEW FIGURES
LAST QUARTER IN SPEEDY TIME.
But for a Heavy Wind Better Work
Might Have Been Done by
GLENS FALLS, N. V., Oct. B— At
the mile-track of the Northern Horse
Breeders' association here today John
R. Gentry and Robert J broke the pac
ing team record, going the mile in
2:08. This was done after the pair had
been sent away in 2:11, and before the
close of the day's sport Gentry, with
a running mate, paced a mile in 2:03%.
Three thousand persons filled the
6tands. Robert J was given a warming
up heat in 2:12, and Gentry was senc
a mile in 2:09^. The two great pacers
then made ready for their effort
against the world's record of 2:09 for
double teams. After a short spin they
faced the flag and received the word.
They turned the first quarter In 32
seconds going steady, and the half in
1:04% was hung out; the three-quar
ters was turned off in 1:37%,, and the
mile in 2:11. This, of course, was a
In the second trial the team got away
on the third score, Robert J having
broken on the first turn in the two
iiist attempts. The first quarter was
a repetition of the first trial, in 32 sec
onds, but the half mile was a quarter
of a second slower. They reached the
three-quarter pole in 1:37% again. As
they straightened out for home, Driver
Bowne shook them up a bit, and they
came down the stretch in a tremendous
burst of speed, passing under the wire
in the marvelous time of :30% for the
last quarter and making the mile in
2:08. The crowd went wild with en
Shortly afterward Gentry was
brought out for his trial with a run
ning mate to break the track record of
2:01%, made by himself in 1896. He
■went the distance with clock-like reg-
ularity in 2:03%, finishing fresh, which,
, considering the work he had done pre
vious to this, was a great performance.
Robert J was then sent along. He
turned the first quarter in 30 seconds,
the half in 1 minute, the three-quarters
in 1:33, and the mile in 2:04%. The wind
interfered greatly in the trials, and
but for this interference the record
would undoubtedly have gone much
Gentry and Robert J will be shipped
tomorrow to Hagerstown, Md., where
they will appear at the state fair. They,
will go from there to Nashville, Term.
Two Additional Heats and the Race
Taken by It lima.
LE.^XGTON, Ky., Oct. B.— A perfect day

trotters, was a split heat affair, in which
sixteen horses started. Robert R won the
first and third heats, Zylpha the second and
Direetlne the fourth heat. In the fifth heat

their members, who made a good appearance
in this line, getting arountf the ends in fine
form. The teams lined up as follows:
St. Paul Minneapolis.
Delarnere C Bastard
Molander R. G McQuade
Squires L. G Bidlake
Benton R. T Boardman
Rogers, captain L. T Wagner
Warner R. E Janney
Finch L. E Van Bergen
O'Brien R. H McKey
Weed L. H Weston
McDonald F. B Acomb, captain
Hasenwink'.e Q. B Grey
It was decided to play two twenty-minute
halves. The game opened with a ktck-on* by
McDonald to the thirty-yard line, wh«re Capt.
Aeomb, of the Millers, getting the ball, gained
ten yards. McQuade took the ball fifteen
yards around to the center of the fle-'.d where
Minneapolis lost it on downs. St. Paul,
however, failed to gain the essential five
yards, and the Millers soon had the pigskin
again, and with a series of effective center
plays, gained St. Paul's twenty-five yard line.
McKey got around the end for fifteen yards,
but the Saintly City boys then bracad them
seh-es and got the ball again on downs, only
to lose it forthwith, as before. McKey made
five yards around the end and Weston bucked
the center of the St. Paul line, making the
first touch-down in eleven minutes. Janney
kicked goal and the score was 6-0.
McDonald kicked to Minneapolis' twenty
five yard line, but Minneapolis was forced to
kick. McDonald muffed the ball, Minneapolis
getting it at the center of the field, where Mc-
Key took it around the right end for fifteen
yards. Then the up-river lads gained another
fifteen on off side play, but St. Paul got the
ball on a fumble on the ten yard line, and
gained fifteen. Off-s:de play again got the
Millers the baH. and Mackey making another
fine run around the St. Paul end got a touch
down, but Janney missed goal. The score
was 10 to 0. McDonald kicked to Acomb, who
was downed in his tracks. St. Paul got the
baM on a fumble, and advanced it to Minne
apolis' thirty yard line, but time was called.
The second half opened with Acomb's kick
to Rogers, who failed to gain any ground.
Van Be-rgen got the ball on a fumble, and
made thirty yards for a touchdown, the quick
est or the game, the time being but 55 sec
onds. Janney kicked goal, making it 16 to 0.
McDonald again kicked off to Acomb, who ad
vanced 1 the ball to the center of the field, but
the Millers lost the ball on off-side play.
St. Paul being forced to kick, Acomb muffed
the ball, and it rolled behind the goal, Rogers
falling on it, making St. Paul's first touch
down, in twelve minutes. St. Paul punted out
for position, but McDonald failed to kick goal.
The score was 16 to 4. Acomb kicked to Ha
senwinkle, who advanced the ball ten yards,
when St. Paul lost it in the center of the field
on a fumble. Van Bergen's long run around
the end was fruitless, as he went out of
bounds. St. Paul regaining the ball on off-side
play, McDonald went around tihe left end for
a gain of twenty-five yards to the center of
the field, but the Saints were again forced to
kick. The baM was locked, and, Van Bergen
getting it, gained forty yards for a touch
do.wn in 16% minutes. Janney failed 1 to kick
goal, and the score was 20 to 4.
McDonald kicked to Minneapolis' twenty
five yard line, and the Millers advanced the
ball to the center, but were forced to kick.
St. Paul tried to buck the center, but, failing,
were also forced to kick. Hasenwinkle sent
the ball thirty yards. McKey got around the
end for twenty yards, where Acomb kicked to
St. Paul's twenty yard line. The Saints, how
ever, regained ten yards, and the ball was on
the thirty yard line when time was called.
McDonald, Rogers and Hasenwinkle distin
guished themselves in the St. Paul team,
while Van Bergen, Janney and McKey were
the stars of the up-river team.
COACH STAGG DEMES.
Says He Has No Prejudice Against
CHICAGO. Oct. B.— Coach Stagg, of the Uni
versity of Chicago eleven, is inclined to ridi
cule the suggested formation of an associa
tion of colleges and amateur athletic clubs,
distinct from the Western Intercollegiate as
sociation, in which the University of Chicago
Should be ignored. This suggestion came
from William Hale Thompson, of the Chicago
Athletic association, and was published in
Minneapolis, together with some sarcastic re
marks concerning Mr. Stagg's refusal to ar
range dates with either the University of Min
nesota of the C. A. A.
When Mr. Stagg was asked about his rela
tion with the University of Minnesota he pro
tested his friendliness with the Northern
school, and that he had not endeavored nor
had any intention of endeavoring to push it
out of the Western Intercollegiate Athletic
association, as the letter seemed to hint. He
said, however, there were many reasons why
it was impossible for the University of Chi
cago to play Minnesota this year. The sched
ule for his school is filled. All the Western
colleges have limited their hard games this
year to a small number, and he did not feel
it would be fair for him to make his men
work harder than those of other schools. In
selecting the schools with which he would
play he was governed largely also by the
number of alumni they each had in the city,
and he was convinced that Chicago contains
fe»"er graduates from Minnesota than from
Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois and Northwest
ern, the four schools on the Chicago sched
NO OFFICIAL, AVERAGES.
Bane Ball Fans Will Have to Await
.loli n son'* Figrures.
A correspondent asks the Globe to print
the batting and fielding averages of the West
ern league. They have not yet been made
up. As soon as President Johnson com
pletes them the Globe will give them to
the public. The Globe gave the averages
of the St. Paul and Minneapolis teams from
week to week throughout the season, and
j occasionally printed those of Indianapolis as
given in the Indianapolis papers. A young
man connected with the Evening Wisconsin,
of Milwaukee, has prepared and sold to a lot
of newspapers which wouldn't know an ac
curate rporting item if they saw it a tabula
tion which he calls the Western league aver
ages. The Globe has these averages in
j its possession, but they are so full of glaring
I errors that It will not giive space to them.
( This young man has made these averages
apparently from score sheets as printed in
newspai>ers about the circuit, but, as every
body knows, half or more of these were not
made by official scorers, and do not approxi
mate correctness. He is, no doubt, nearer
the facts as to batting than fielding. He
makes Mcßride lead the whole league with
! the willow with an average of .382, Glass
cock is placed third at .373, Isbell seventeenth
at .345. George twentieth at .340 and Nyce
twenty-fourth at .338. However, the figures

NO FINISH FIGHTS.
Canadian Police "Will Not Permit
BUFFALO, N. V.. Oct. B.— lt is not prob
able that the McCoy-Creedon fight or any
other finish fight will be brought off at
Fort Erie or in any other section of Canada.
For some time a party of New Yorkers have
been endeavoring to secure in Montreal let
ters of patent for the formation of the
Canadian Athletic association, its object be
ing to give exhibitions of an athletic char
i acter, including boxing. Such letters were
i issued last week by the lieutenant governor
j in council, but before signing these papers
the clause relating to boxing exhibitions was
I stricken out. and any attempt to bring off a
' fight under this charter will be severely
I punished. There is a clause in the Canadian
laws permitting glove contests, but officers
of the law are always present at such af
fairs and stop the exhibition when the slight
est brutality is shown.

Douk'liim and Gray the Two Cup
NEW YORK, Oct. B.— The semi-flnals and
finals for the St. Andrew's cup and the
Holbrook consolidation trophy were playe.i
today over the St. Andrew's links. After six

liancy worthy of professionals, Finlay Doug
las, the young Scotchman, -who represents
the Fairfield County Golf club, won the St.
Andrew's cup, and" W. T. ray, of St. An

NEW YORK, Oct. B.— A live cat and
a dozen eggs made a trip in one of the
pneumatic carriers sent between the
postornce and the produce exchange
this afternoon. The cat was alive and
unharmed at the end of this strange
journey and the eggs were unbroken.
This furnished an illustration of the

marked. The Brble was wrapped in
the national flag, and the package also
contained a copy of President McKin

Small Wheat Shipments.
GRAND FORKS, N. D., Oct. B.— Shipments
of wheat from this part of the Red river
valley have dropped off considerably in the
past few days owing^ to the fail in prices.
It is expected that it will increase to the
former large proportions by the middle of the
month. Farmers owning threshing figs are
said to be responsible for many of the rigs
being housed until next fall. Most of those
doing threshing charged nine cents forl it,
hut that price was gradually reduced to\as
low as four cents and • a large number have
Quit. The most successful threshers claim
that It is impossible to do the work for that
money and pay wagea.
Collided on n Turntuble.
GRAND FORKS, N. D., Oct. B— C. J. Rag

jured in a collision at Crookston on Wednes*
day night. The collision was caused by the
switch being left set for the turn table, which
allowed the heavy through fre ght from the
switch to crash into a waiting engine. Both
engines were wrecked, one of them being
thrown almost across the street. Several
freight cars were smashed and their con
tents scattered. Rogers was the only person
hurt, and he was thrown from the top of a
furniture ear, injuring his ankle. He was
brought to Grand Forks for treatment.

"GOLF ARM" THE LATEST.
It Is an Aristocratic Aliment—lt e
snlt of the New Game.
NEW YORK, Oct. B.— "Golf arm" is
the latest discovery of local physicians
in the way of physical ailment. It
results, of course, from too arduous and
too steady indulgence in the royal and
ancient game of the brawny Scot.
The base ball player gave us "glass
arm," the scorcher introduced the
"bicycle face." But those are common
and plebeian ailments; the "golf arm"
is patrician and troubles only the aris
tocrat. In a general way, however, it
is said to originate from much the
same sort of exercise as that which
produces "glass arm." Persons of sour
disposition and ill disposed toward hon
orable sport have often insisted that
the last named disease came from the
too frequent crooking of the elbow
necessary to elevating a glass to the
lips — a practice attributed to ball play
ers — and have claimed that an X-ray
photograph of a "glass arm" would
show a jointed series of small whisky
tumblers where the bones of the arm
ought to be.
Of course, so far as "glass arm" re
sults from any such causes it bears no
relation to "golf arm." It is easy to
see. though, how - golfer, in trying to
"loft" his ball from behind a bad hum
mock, or drive it from its half-buried
position in a sand bunker, should so
wrench the muscles of his biceps and
shoulders as to produce that bound
and lame condition which really is "golf
. What will be the effect of the new
disease on the playing of the game,
which has become so popular of late
with Americans, is hard to predict.
There seems little doubt, however, that,
it will result in many "foozled ap
proaches" and other misplays that
work havoc with good scores.
This discovery of the new disease
teaches one thing, though, of which all
American golfers ought to feel proud,
and that is that they are nearer up to
date in the game than are the Scotch,
with whom it originated. Golf has
been played for centuries in Scotlani.
and there never was such a thing heard
of there as "golf arm." The game has
been played in America but a very few
years, and those who indulge in it have
developed this difficulty almost at the
start. Truly, those Scotch are a hardy

If Yon Really Want to v CHml> Theie

The terrible Jungfrau of Switzer
land is but 14,000 feet high, yet trav
elers from all over the world journey
to Interlaken to climb it, or say they
have sat in the hotel and wished that
they might climb it. Mont Blanc,
in the same delightful little European
republic, is forever quilted with snow,
and for this reason is one of the most
seductive features of travel to the
neighborhood of Geneva.
Then, asks the Denver Times, why
should not every American who has
money to spare and the desire to make
a journey into Colorado strap a pair
of mountain boots on his legs, put a
spike on an ash staff and attempt
to climb Mount Blanca, in the south- >
crn part of the state? Mount Blanca
is over 14,000 feet high. Or, if he does
rot desire to take the risk of this
perilous ascent, why should not he
come up into the northern part of I
the state, place his field glasses in
hifl hands and gaze on the glacier and
the perpetual banks of snow that cov

SUICIDE ATTEMPTED BY A JAP
ANESE OFFICIAL. WHO WAS
NOW FLYS HAWAII'S FLAG.
CASE OF THE STEAMER CHINA
DECIDED BY THE ISLANDS'
MEETING ADDRESSED BY MORGAN.
Natives Enlightened on the Subject
of Annexation by the Senator
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. B.— The
steamship China arrived here today
from Hong Kong, via Honolulu, with
the following advices:
Councilor Aki Yama, of the Japan
ese foreign office, attempted suicide at
Yokohama on Sept. 20. At last ac
counts he was in a critical condition.
There were two severe wounds, one in
the throat and the other in the abdo
men. Aki Yama arrived in Honolulu on
the Japanese cruiser Naniwai last May
to assist Minister Shimamura in hand
ling the Japanese immigration matter.
He was ordered home in July, and the
impression got abroad at the time that
he failed to accomplish what was ex
pected of him by the government; that
he had gone home in disgrace, or at
any rate prior to his departure the
matter had been taken entirely out of
At 2 o'clock on the 20th he went away
from the foreign office saying that he
felt unwell, and on reaching home, he
complained of suffering and went to
lie down. About half an hour later a
member of the household entered his
room and found him bathed in blood.
A sword about three feet long was
grasped in his right hand and several
severe wounds were visible on his neck
and abdomen. He was almost un
conscious, but owing to the difficulty of
using a weapon of such length for sui
cidal purposes, according to the ortho
dox Japanese fashion, he failed to in
flict mortal injury. It would seem that
when he plunged the sword into his
stomach and attempted to draw it
across, the impossibility of guiding it
correctly resulted in its glancing up
ward against the ribs on the left side,
and although an effort was made to
chcnge the direction to the right, the
enfeebling effect of the first rendered
the second inocuous. The same diffi
culty saved the jugular vein when the
sword was directed against the throat.
When his mother raised his head, she
asked him what had induced him to
take such a course, but he made no
answer, although he managed to let At
be understood that he d.d not wish to
have medical aid. A physician was
soon on the spot, and the wounds were
treated, that in the stomach requiring
fifty stitches. It is understood to be the
doctor's opinion that if no complica
tions ensue a fatal result need not be
arprehended. The almost invariable
custom with a Japanese who contem
plates suicide, is to leave a written
statement of his reasons for the act,
but nothing of this kind has been
found in this case, and it is. of course,
idle to speculate on the motives, by
which he was influenced. Possibly the
simple explanation is mental derange
ment, but naturally there is a disposi
tion to infer that some feature of the
Hawaiian affair had depressed him be
The supreme court of Hawaii has af
firmed the decision of the low'ir court
in the case of the steamship China,
and at a late hour yesterday G. W.
McFarlane secured a register for the
big vessel. It was feared that the gov
ernment might ask for a rehearing of
the case before the supreme court, but
no further objection was offersd, and as
soon as possible after Judge Perry had
issued the writ against the collector of
customs it was presented at the uus
tom house and the formal papers
drawn up, giving the China the right
to fly the Hawaiian flag. Now that
the China case is disposed of, the Pa
cific Mail company will send the Bar
acouta, now* plying between Central
American ports, and will make appli
cation for Hawaiian register for her.
There ia no doubt that the Baracouta
will get her register. MacFarlane,
who is her flag owner, says she will
come here next month.
Dr. Jarrard K. Smith, a brother of
Attorney General Smith, was murdered
at Koloa, on the island of Kauai, on
the night of Sept. 24. A native named
Kapea committed the deed. His
brother, an accomplice, turned state's
evidence, and the arrest of the mur
derer followed. The crime was a most
cold-blooded one. Mr. Smith was at
his desk engaged in writing; a knock
called him to the door, and as he
stepped on the veranda the native shot
him and then drove off. His victim
lived for a few moments. The mur
der was committed because Smith had
ordered his mistress to Honolulu to re
port as a leper suspect. This action
incensed the native and he took the
physician's life. Dr. Smith was to be
married shortly to Miss Mary Brewer,
now in San Francisco.

BADGER STATE TO CELEBRATE.
Semi-Centennial of Wisconsin t«: Be
Marked by a Great Carnival.
MILWAUKEE, Wis., Oct. B.— A com
mittee of the leading business men of
the city have determined to celebrate
the semi-centennial of the admission
of Wisconsin to the sisterhood of states
by a grand pageant and a week's car
nival during the summer of 1898. It
was decided to recommend to a finance
committee to raise a fund of $125,000
to meet the expenses of the carnival.
It is proposed to get up a celebration
which will rival the pageants of the
veiled prophets at St. Louis and the
New Orleans mardi gras and to make
it an annual event in the life of this
city. It is proposed to have a pageant
next year, with numerous magnificent
floats representing the principal events
in the history of the development of
Wisconsin and the Northwest territory.
Besides this it is proposed to arrange
a number of sham battles, in which the
national guard and United States reg
ulars will participate, and to have the
greatest water carnival which has ever
been witnessed on the lakes. The
meeting recommended Alvin Kletzsch
be made the chairman of the commit
tee, which will finance and have the
management of the project.
