BASE BALL BEIEFS.
Manager Anson must have rescinded the or
d> t i' leasing Wiimot. Walter baited for Do
bi ny in the ninth inning of the New York-
Brooklyn game on Tuesday.
It was noticed that Charlie Frisbee gave his
bat an unusually juicy smack before h« lined
out his doubie yesterday. Krisbee never fails
to l;isa the end of his stick before batting. —
Kansas City Journal.
And Kansas City has disease microbes to
burn.
•Knock the cover off the ball," has long
been a favorite exhortation of bleachers.
Nil .M came near doing that very trick ye*
f»rday. He was the first man at the bat. and
■when Merideth pitched the third ball of the
game Nlool swung on it with all his strength.
He caught the ball on the edge of his bat,
and it went sailing over the bench of the
visiting players. As the ball went through
the air it made a noise like a buzz-saw and
v.hen it was picked up it was found that
nearly half the cover had been torn off by
the force of the blow. — Kansas City Times.
Pitcher Wacs worth, of the Omaha team, is
laid ip with an injured shoulder, and will be
out of the game at least ten days.
Earl Wagr.er lias received a telegram from
Dud Clarke asking to be given a trial. It U
not likely that Dad will don a Senatorial uni
form-, as tho Washington management is w^ll
off in the pitching department jus: now.
Witli Hus!e and Meekin suffering frcm lack
of spetd the club is in a bad way. It is re
ported that the management is trying to se-
CUre Castro, of Manhattan college, and Di.-k
--■on, i.f the University of Pennsylvania.— New
York Sun.
In a recent game at Boston Mcßride put the
s roiia ball pit'-hed over the right field fence,
but it was a foul. Nichols ran up and l:oked
st-rutinizingly at the bat. Ho called Umpre
Cnafaauui'a attrition to a lLtle flatness on^its
surface, and Mcßride had to get a new bat.
President Muckenfuss stated the other day
that Jack Crooks and Kilpatrick would be
traded off to Columbus. 0.. to make room for
Strnzel and Quinn. Crooks made quite a hit
at second bag this year and up to date he
leads the league in fleldiug, but somehow cr
other he could not land on the ball.
Mike Griffin has resigned tbe management
of the Brooklyn club. He gave as his reason
that he had uo ambition to be a manager
while lie was able to play ball, and uiat
% managerial cares handicap players. Presi
dent Ebbetts will manage the team and
Griffin Will act as captain, with control of the
men while on the field.
Indianapolis still continues to have a gO3d
lead in the Western League racs. With
ordinary luck ihe Hoosiers should be able
to keep the lead throughout the rest of the
trip. Detroit managed to pull the Saints down
a pig yesterday, and Columbus will make it
interesting for Comifkoy's men the latter
part of the wet-k.— lndianapolis News.
It ia stated that a rule 13 about to be
adapted by the National league requiring that
each :!ub shall cut its number of men to
fourteen. Cincinnati is speculating as 10
which men of the teani will be let go. It
is fiaid two of them will be Goar and Wood,
last year with Indianapolis. The Enquirer
thinks- the other two may be Holliday ana
Mcßride.
Dowd, tlis crack pitcher of th« Harvard
University team, has been offered ?2,600 by
the- Brooklyn club for four months' work.
Dowd will not accept the offer.
It is the o-pinion of those who have wit
nessed the work of tho Indidnapoli* men that
it is the strongest team that lias yet visited
Omaha.— Omaha Bee.
Dan Brouthers has another lease on life.
He has signed with Toronto.
"Uube" Wadth'll and Van Derbeck do not
speak now. and Waddeil says he will not
play for the Detroit club again. '"Will I
pluy with Detroit again? No, tir! My name
way be Reuben, but I am no Rube to be
conned by a man like Van Derbeek. If it
cornea to a pinch and Van Derbeek wants
BM to help him out of a hole I might pitch
a game or two for him, but I will never
work for him regularly again. Van and I
are out for keeps."
It begins to look very much as If the rest
of the Western league teams would have to
look out for Kansas, City.
After the Kansas City series Indianapolis
will play two games at home with Detroit and
three with Milwaukee, going tn< n to Mil
waukee for four and to Detroit for three.
KAI CI.AIKIO HORSE WON.
Addle II I>efeut» Minn Sidney in
Three Straight.
The match race between the horses
Addie B and Miss Sidney, which came
efT yesterday afternoon at the fair
I grounds race track, was won by Addie
X in three straight heats. The time
given by the judges was 2:23%, 2:23»i
and 2:23%, but unofficial watches made
it 2:15*4, 2:16^ and 2:18%, respectively.
The race was witnesstnl by a large
crowd of horsemen and many women
interested in such events. Among the
spectators were a number of visitors
from Wisconsin, where both horses are
owned.
Addie B is owned by George Thomas,
of Kau Claire, and was driven by Wil
liam Catura. Miss Sidney is owned by
C. W. McCann and was driven by
Charles De Ryder. The judges were
Dr. R. M. Dodds, of Mankato; D. B.
Chamberlain, of Menomonie. and Wil
liam Wilson, of Menomonie.
The race was started at 1:30 p. in.
The first heat was so clcse that at the
finish it was difficult to decide which
I horse was ahead. It was a neck and
I neck race all around the track, and
the excitement of the spectators was
intense. But Addie B passed under
the wire slightly ahead of Miss Sidney
and was awarded the heat.
The second heat was also close, but
was won by Addie B.
Miss Sidney seemed a winner in the
third heat until Addie B on the home
stretch forged to the front and won
it by half a head.
At the end of the race the owners
of the rival horses met In the judges'
stand and shook hands over the re
sult. Mr. Thomas was awarded the
$1,000 purse for his horse's victory.
Between the heats in the principal
event a mile dash road race was pull
ed off between five crack trotters and j
pacers. The entries were the chestnut j
gelding Hairy Nevins. owned by J. D.
Douglass, of Merriam Park; the chest- j
nut gelding Roudy, owned by Game j
Commissioner Fullorton; the chestnut j
gelding Rakush, owned by C. B. Bron- j
son; the bay mare Fannie H, owned ;
by Abe Eschelman, and the black j
gelding Black Cherry, owned by J. Mil- {
ler.
The race was won by Harry Nevins
by five lengths. The other horses fin
ished in a bunch. Time, 2:32.
WISCONSIN ISIVERSITY CREW.
The Bndjfer Men Will Make an Ef- {
fort to Win.
MADISON. Wls.. June 13.— A last great vie- j
tcry to close a most successful year in ath- ;
letics is hoped for by Wisconsin in the shell i
race with Cornell. Columbia and Penneylvani ;
which takes place en Lake Saratoga, July 1. i
The colleges with which Wisconsin will com- j
pete have the advantage of abundant equip- !
ment and plenty of financial backing, besides :
a long line of victories to spur them on. The ,
Badger eight wi.l. however, make a desperate j
effort to win, for they feel that upon this |
race depends their standing in Eastern j
aquatics.
The lack of a coaching launch and no shore •
line to enable the coach to direct the men
from the bank somewhat handicaps the Wis- ;
censin crew, but Coach ODea looks after the
men the best he can in a sculling boa*. Not
withstanding these drawbacks Wisconsin has !
turned out some crews that will compare !
favorably with Eastern crews, and this year i
the men are doing better work than in any
previous season.
The matter of securing funds to pay the i
expense of the crew is still a source of trou- \
ble to the boating enthusiasms, but there is no
doubt that before the end of the month suf
ficient money will be raised for the trip. If
it were possible the freshmen crew would
also be s?nt East to keep the regular men |
i pitched to the right form for winning work,
but under the circumstances the students will j
be satisfied to see the regular crew go.
The men are at present rowing in fair body j
form, but their blade work is not as good as
in the freshmen eight, although the time I
made thus far Is quite satisfactory. It is j
be'.ieved this year's Wisconsin crew is the j
fastest she has ever turned out, and if she !
| keeps up her present form will make an j
. celent showing in the East.
The crew expects to start for Saratoga Mon
\ day, June 27. arriving there Tuesday evening,
giving them a little time for practice there j
before thp big race. The positions in the boat
have not yet been definitely settled upon, but j
j as they are rowing now the men and weights j
I are: Bow, Logemann, 15T>; 2. WHliams. 153; 8, j
i Crosby, 163; 4. Olson. 166: 5, Chamberlain,
I 166: 6. McConville. 158; 7, Anderson, 176;
j stroke, Sutherland, 159; coxswain, Dillon, li>6;
sub-stroke. Seymour. 156; sub-coxswain Til- I
: den, 116; Lowell, 112.
CRITICISM OF YAI.E.
Official Statement of the Crew's
Point* of Wenkneits.
NEW HAVEN, Conn., June 15.— The last
' official criticism of the Yale crew was given
i out last night. The 'varsity crew is spoken
] of as follows: "Capt. Whitney, at bow, clips
his strokes and finishes with too short a
1 stroke. Wiekes, No. 2, is stiff in the arms and
: wrists, which interferes with his blade work.
; Brock, No. 3, is too high off the water at j
; the beginning of the stroke and lacks snap
■ and does not go far enough back. Flint, No 4,
j lacks life. His form is good. Niedecken, No.
! 5, meets his oar and doe 3 not finish high
enough. Allen, No. G, is strong. He clips his
! stroke and does not pull his o-ar through to a
! finish. Greenleaf, No. 7, is apt to be behind
j Williams. WllliamE, stroke, is rowing a
strong oar, but is clipping badly."
Following is a criticism of the entire fresh
; man squad:
"Brown, captain, slow on the catch and in
! applying his power. Shivers out on the fln
! ish. Auchincioss has shown improvement.
; Still drops over on the catch. Not steady in
i applying power. Keppelman is too high off
j the water in the catch and pulls out at the
■ finish. Patterson pays too much attention to
1 body form. Applies his power in an irregular
! manner: too stiff. Ireland does not pull the
I stroke straight through. He is apt to let up
I toward the end of his strike. Gillette is slow
! in applying power and gets caught on finish.
! Wheeler dips too deep. He does not carry the
: back swing through far enough. Cameron.
! too high out of water on the catch. Too stiff
and mechanical in his movements. Waterman
j dips a little too deep and Is a little too short
1 of his reach. Mitchell pulls out at the finish.
| He is not always regular. Atkinson gets in
I behind the rest of the crew and is high in the I
catch. Olcott is slow with his hands and is
apt to rull with his arms. He also pulls out
at the finish. Stillman is slow in applying his
power and gets caught badly In the finish."
TRAINING OP CORSELL
Ik Finished, and I lie Cr.-w la ;S.-,i-*y
for Its Work,
ITHACA, N. T., June 15.— The training of
the Cornell crews is finished for the season
of I*9B. They are now patiently waiting for
the coming struggle at New London, which
shall decide which college may claim th«
rowing championship for this year. It is
safe to say that Cornell has a 'varsity crew
this year on whose prowess she may safely
rest her laurels. The two crews, with sub
stitutes, left Ithaca with boats and baggage
at C:4O this morning, and a large delegation
of students were at hand to give them a
royal send-off.

NEW YORK, June 15.— The trotting
season opens in New England this w. eic
at Combination park, Boston. The
purses, considering that the season is
backward, have filled W«IL The 2:13
pace has in seven, including George
X., Annie Shedd, and Fieldmont. No
less than fifteen are named in the 2:30
trotting class, which is thus secure of
a big field. • The 2:25 pace has secured
eleven nomlnaitions. while ten are en
tered in the 2:35 class. The 2:19 class
has six, the 2:22 class, nine, and the
free-for-all, eiglit entries. Combination
park by the record is the fastest half
m!U- track on the continent.
The Parkway Driving Club of Brook
lyn will hold a three days' meeting on
June 22, 23 and 24, the entry Hat cosing
on June 7. In tpite of a backward
season, all the purses have filled reas
onably well. On the opening day the
2:17 pace has six entries, while the 2:50
and 2:24 trotting classes have twelve
each. On Thursday the 2:29 and 2:20
trotting class, s have secured seven and
ten entries respectively, and the 3:00
pace has also got half a score. On
the third day of the meeting the 2:3)
P&ce has twelve, the free-for-all trot
or pace eight, and the 2:40 trot ten en
tries. These returns promise three gool
days' sport at this pretty track. This
is the opening meeting of the local sea
son.
The meetings at Philadelphia and Al
bany which closed last week, are well
vorth noting, and though the purses
were small, the performances were
good. At Philadelphia in the 2:10 class
trot or pace, the winner, Hans Mc-
Gregor, trotted the fastest heat of the
year to date, doing it in 2:llV*. He is
by Black Hawk McGregor, and his pre
vious record was 2:12%. His time was
2:12%, 2:12*4, ar.d 2:11V4. The bay mare
Valeo won the 2:40 class in straight
heats, her best time being 2:21V2, and
£.gain the question arises as to what is
her speed limit. At Belmont park, the
week previous, she won both races she
Started in, and took a record of 2:lBVi-
It is quite clear that she will have to
get into Grand circuit company before
her speed limit is known. The bay
horse Plymouth ML, a giar.dson of Elec
tioneer, captured the 2:27 class in go, d
style in 2:20*4. and Jack, a speedy geld
ing by Mambr-no Boy, won the 2:30 trot
In an average of 2:18%. The 2:25 trot
brought a new mare to the front in
Lady, by Vatican (a rank outsider),
who put her mark down to 2:2OVi, while
in the 2:22 pace the "bay grelding Ains
worth. who has won four races in two
weeks, landed again in a battle of three
heats, in 2:16^2. 2:17, and 2:17.
There were also notable reductions of
records at Albany. In the 2:45 trotting
class the roan gelding. Kentucky Prank,
put his mark down to 2:25 Vi in the fifth
heat, while Senator L, his principal
competitor, took the third heat in 2.22Vg.
Three speedy mares appeared in the
2:35 class, and they could not have
trotted a more desperate race if they
had been competing for a $10,000 stake
instead of a $500 purse. The black
mare, Belle G., won the first and sec
ond heats In 2:23*4 and 2:19*4. The
chestnut mare, Addie D., won the
fourth in 2:19*4, but the race went to
the bay mare, Lottie P., whose best
time was 2:25%. In the 2:19 class that
New York favorite, Ed Lock, owned by
ex-Alderman Hughes, won in good
style, in an average of 2:19, and in the
2:25 pace the bay gelding, Merritt
mark to 2:17%.
One of the best tracks in the conti
nent has Just been completed at
Bridgeport, Conn., and the association
will hold its inaugural meeting on June
28 to July 1, inclusive, and the card is
well worthy of the attention of horse
men. On the opening day the pro
gramme includes the 2:15 and 2:25 pac
ing classes and the 2:21 trotting class.
The second day is devoted to the 2:35
and 2:18 trotting classes and the 2:29
trot and pace. The 2:26 trotting
class, the 2:25 pace, and a free-for-all
trot and pace fill the third day's card,
while the fourth day is devoted to a
$300 purse for four-year-olds or under,
trot or pace, and a 2:40 class for the
same amount for trotters and pacers,
open only to horses owned in the coun
ty. The other purses are $500 each,
except the free-for-all, which is for
$700.

Win.
WATERTOWN, Wis., Juno 15.— Jame3
Davis, of Racine, and Dan Fitzgerald, of
Freeport, 111., engaged in a finish prize fight
in this city at an early hour this morning,
Fitzgerald being knocked out in the sixteenth
round.
Fitzgerald had the advantage in height and
weight, but had not properly trained.
In the tenth round Davis almost had hi 3
maa out, after delivering a terrific upper
cut. Fitzgerald, however, rallied sufficiently
to come to the scratch on the call of time, and
stayed with his man until the sixteenth round,
when Davis landed a hard blow on the jaw
knocking him down and out.
The men are of the middle-weight class.

A rate of fare for the round trip of one
and one-third times a single fare to Boston
(provided it be more than 75 cents) has been
granted by the New England. Trunk Line,
Central. Southeastern and Western Passen
ger associations, which cover practically all
the railways of the country operating east
of an irregular north and south line bet-ween
the Rocky and Sierra Nevada mountains.
This rate is contingent * upon a hundred
or more tickets being sold to members at
tending the eighth congress.
No concession was obtained from the Pa
cine association. Those coming from such
district should buy tickets to the nearest
point in the Western Passenger association
territory, from which point they may obtain
the reduced rate.
Any one who desires to avail himself of
this rate should state to the ticket-seller that
he is to attend the eighth American whist
congress, and desires a single trip ticket to
Boston, with a certificate to enable him to
procure a return ticket at the reduced rate.
Upon payment of a single full fare, the
ticket, with a certificate, will be given.
Tickets should be called for at least thirty
minutes before train-leaving time to enable
ths seller to prepare the necessary blanks.
The ticket will be taken up in transit by
the railway companies; the certificate should
b? retained and presented at the bureau of j
administration at the congress, where on J
Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, July 12. 13, I

then be called for by the person presenting
it. Such person, upon handing It to the tick
et seller in Boston, will be given a return
ticket over the same route by which he came
upon payment of one-third the regular fare.
Persons residing at stations at which the
ticket office is not provided with the blank
certificates should buy a ticket to the nearest
large statiaa. as will be indicated by the
agent, where the desired rate will be arrang- I
ed for in the above manner. It is quite es
sential, thererore. that at such small stations
the ticket seller be notified several days in
advance of the time cf the proposed depart
ure that a call will be made fcr such a ticket
so that he may. If possible, be prepar d.
It is absolutely necessary that the certi

be presented at the bureau cf administration
Unless such a certificate, properly counter

association In Boston. i 3 held, no return
ticket at the reduced rate can be obtained.
These tickets, with certificates, can be ob
tained only between July 7 and July 13 three
days before and three days after the opening
of the congress. Sunday not included If
however, it requires more than three days to
reach Boston from any point. additHr.al time
■ma be allowed, as per ru!es with which the
ticket agent is provided. The extent of such
additional time may be determined by con

The certificates are not transferable. Any

"AH Americans
Do not not drink ice water,"
gravely writes an observant
Frenchman. No, indeed; many
Americans have learned from
painful experience what a dan
gerous drink ice water is. They
would almost as soon think of
swallowing- carbolic acid. They
drink cool water, into which
they pour a little of
Duffy's Pure
Malt Whiskey,
which is a wholesome stimulant,
and neutralizes the power of
disease-breeding 1 g-erms so often
present in drinking-water. This
whiskey prevents the painful in
testinal troubles that are trace
able directly to impure drinking
water.
Be sure your druggist or grocer
gives you the genuine Duffy's.
WHERE THE GOLD GOES
ALASKA'S RICHES I'Ol ltl\(. IXTO
THE I. S. MUST
Uncle Sam Buys All the tioUl Ottered
and Nearly All i inn is Mined
Eventually RenclieM His Crucible
What He Dock With the Yellow
Metal.
Washington Cor. St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Ever so much has been written about
the gold that comes from the Klondike,
but nobody seems to have thought of
inquiring as to what becomes of it after
it has left the placer mines and the
Yukon range.
If you are a miner just return,
ed from the Klondike with a bag of
geld, you may convert it into every
day money at very short notice. The
treasury check returned to you through
the bank is for only 98 per cent of the
estimated value of the dust and nug
gets. That you get without any delay
at all beyond the time required for ex
pressing the stuff to Helena and for
the return of the check by mail. The
balance due to you comes as soon as
your gold has been subjected to the
necessary assay. You have a right,
under the law, to receive gold coin for
your check if you choose to ask for it.
If you make no such demand, the treas
ury will give you paper money; but
the check is really payable in gold if
you want it. The idea back of this is
that any man has a right to offer raw
gold to the United States government
and to receive gold coin in return.
This legal obligation is fulfilled at
considerable cost by the government.
Every gold coin contains its full face
value in that metal, plus a percentage
of copper added to harden it. The
minting of it costs something, and for
this nothing is charged. In other
words. Uncle Sam gives the manufac
tured article cf money in return for
raw material. Furthermore, it must be
considered that gold pieces suffer ap
preciable loss by abrasion while in cir
culation. Even gold coins in bags at
the treasury lose something of their
value by being jostled about. This is
a dead loss to the government, which
only protects itself by fixing a "limit
of tolerance," as it Is called. When more
than a certain fraction of a gold piece
has been lost by abrasion, it is accept
ed only by weight.
It is a rather interesting fact that a
good deal of gold from Australia is
now coming into this country by way
of San Fracisco. It gones directly to
the mint in that city, and is there con
verted into coin. But, whatsoever the
source of the raw gold, the treatment
it receives on reaching the mint or as
say office is the same. Each lot of
Klondike dust, with its sprinkling of
tiny nuggets, is put into a close vessel
called a crucible. The crucible is placed
in a furnace, and when the metal is
melted it is poured into a mold, which
forms it into a brick, called a "bar."
"While in the crucible, the molten yel
low stuff is stirred costantly and thor
oughly, so that all the materials it con
tains may be distributed equally
through the bar. For, of course, the
raw gold is apt to be combined with
more or less of silver, copper and even
lead.
The bar, when cool, is sent to the
■weighing room, where the assayer
chips from it a very small scrap, and
this scrap is -put through an elabortc
process, for the purpose of determin
ing exactly how much gold it contains.
Eventually it is reduced to a bit of ab
solutely pure gold, and the weight of
this bit gives to the assayer his data
for reckoning the exact value of the
bar. On this reckoning the payment
check is made out. The gold brick, be
ing now the property of Uncle Sam,
is subjected to a chemical treatment,
by which the silver and other impuri
ties are separated from it, and the yel
low metal is obtained in a perfectly
pure state. In this state it looks more
like red gravel than anything else, and
nobody would think of stopping by the
wayside to pick up a handful of such
stuff.
The "red gravel" is pressed by hy
draulic power into big cakes, resem
bling angel-food cake in shape but
much bigger. These cakes are worth
about $80,000 apiece. Xext. the mate
rial of which the oakes are made Is
melted again in crucibles, with the ad
dition of 10 per cent of copper, and the
stuff is cast in bars for coining. Each
bar is sliced by machine into several !
strips, which are put under a powerful
roller and squeezed to just the required
thickness for the coins. Then the st'ips
are passed beneath a punch, which
cuts out of them the blanks for the
gold pieces that are to be. Various me
chanical processes, requiring nr> detail
ed description here, are gone through
incidentally, but at length the coin
blanks are put one by one in a stamp
ing machine, which gives to them the
beautiful designs that make the gold
pieces of the United States current at
face value all over the world.
In the Snako River, Idaho, regular
mining is done for "flour gold" — so call
ed because it occurs as a very fine pow
der mixed with the sands at the bot
tom of the stream. These sands are at
tacked by stern-wheel flatboats. which
are floating dredges propel h-d by steam.
The flatboat anchors in a suitable
place, and the gravel is hauled aboard
with buckets attached to an endless
chain. The gold is caught on copper
plates with the ssd of quicksilver, and
the refuse is carried overboard by a
stream of water.
The beach sands of the Oregon sea
coast are quite rich in gold, which is
very pure, though finely divided. Ther^
has been a good deal said lately about
the gold in ordinary sea water, which
actually does amount to about l^c per
ton. But the water of the Caspian sea,
which is very salty, contains from 16c
to 18c worth of gold per ton, and it is
there that the proposed works should
be set up for the purpose of separat
ing tho yellow metai from its salino
solution by electrolysis. Unfortunate
ly, separating by this process is ex
pensive, a powerful current being re
quired.
