MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. s.— The Univer sity of Minnesota eleven was defeated today by the ex-collegiates by a Bcore of 5 to 0 at the old base ixUl i>ark. It Avas a case of veterans aguinst ama teurs, and individual technical knowl edge of the same on the one hand against raw and untried material for the most part on the other. There were two distinct systems of play upon the field. Minnesota used the Pennsylvania tactics, while the opposition played the lale game. Of the latter the ex-Mln a players had quite a knowledge, and they also were well versed in Minnesota's manner of play. Thus they had a two-fold advantage over a green and practically untried team. With the lo*s of Parry, Shepley and Bernhagen from the game Minnesota lost, also th.c individual as well as team work that that trie of players would naturally have put Into the game. Min nesota's work behind the line was very poor at time*. Her team was slow to take advantage of the misplays of the opposition, and slow also in getting away and passing the ball at most op portune times. But the slow work of the varsity eleven was no doubt due to the absence of the fast trio. The fact that on three or four oc casions the alumni were held for downs ir.side the five-yard line answers for what the 'varsity defense will be later in the season. It was an experience that was timely and effectual, and when Minnesota goes against Rush Medical next Saturday, their playing should show 50 per cent improvement. It is said that Minnesota rather looked for defeat, and while the student bod> ■was somewhat disappointed, as much cannot be said for the managers ana players. "Jack" Minds seemed cheer ful, although no doubt he would have been better satisfied had his system been successful. BELDEN KICKED OFF. Belden kicked off and Cole brought the ball back to ninety yards. Minnesota held it for no gains. Adams made a gain of five yards and Alumni took the ball. Minnesota got the ball on downs and punted for lifteen yards. Belden got the bail, but was immediately downed in his tracks. .Minnesota rushed the the field for twenty, and "Sport" Leary went ihiougli their line for a like gain. The Alumni pushed the ball to the ten -yard line and .Minnesota held It for downs. Nelson made a gain for three ya-ds Erickaon punted. Belden rained a like amount and "Hiikey" Harris went arouad the end for fifteen yards. The ex-col'egiates again niMud the ball within five yards of 'a goal, but Minnesota got the bail ou downs. Now Minnesota was just begin ning to get into the game. Minnesota could not gain on two downs and Ericksou punted for a gain of fifteen yards. i again got the ball on downs and s rt:;shed around the end for a gain of i yards. 'Varsity tried to punt on the third down, but Erickson fua,bkd the ball and Alumni got it lor a loss.

Minnesota got the ball on downs. Nelson fumbled in next play and Harrison captured the bail. That play of Nelson's was where Minnesota's chances weni glimmering. On the third down, Larson made ten jards, Harding fif teen, but Madigan failed to gain and the first half of twenty minutes was over. SECOND HALF. The second half opened with Erickson kick ing off for a touchbaek. Smith punted the ball out of bounds and Captain Cole returned it. It was Alumni's ball on the forty-flve-yard line.

Erickson punted on the third down Leary got the ball on the twenty-five-yard line, the whistle blew and the game was over. In individual work, Cole, Rogers, Otto and Irett showed up well. Among the ex ccllegiaUs it was all individual work, and while the weight of their men was a big factor in the battle they showed excellent work for men that have not played together for so long.

CHICAGO, Oct. s.— The University of Chi cago football eleven oas'ly defeated the team from the college of physicians and sur geons this afternoon by a score of 22 to 0. For so early in the season Chicago put up a surprisingly strong game, the line men, with one or two exceptions, holding well, and the backs ruuning low and following the quickly formed interference well. Two toujh-downs were made in each half, goal being kicked from two. Herschberger, of Chicago, made the star play of the game, catching a high punt, and, aided by good interference, run ning nearly eighty yards for a touch-down. Hamill, of Chicago, a 'so made a touch-down after a run of about seventy yards. For P. and S. left tackle Lockwood, lelt half F!ip pen and left ei:d Dean did pretty work.

The Easton boys put up a stiff game, but lacked consid erably in team work. Matthews' continual gains through center and around the ends and Weltic'a forty-yard run for a touch-down were the features. The ball was in Lafay ette's possession for only short seasons. The halves were 25 and 30 minutes. Officials, Crombie Allen, referee; Charles Aul, umpire. - TIGERS IMPROVING. PRINCETON, N. J., Oct. s.— Princeton de feated Stephens institute today, 44 to 0.

MILWAUKEE, Oct. s.— Chauncey Fisher, the "mainstay of the St. Joe and Omaha teams this year, may be a member of the Milwaukeea next season, negotiations having been begun to ac quire his services by purchase. Presi dent Kiiiilea and Manager Mack both entertain the idea that Fisher will ably fit in "Jack" Taylor's shoes, as he won twenty-two and lost twenty-three games this year with that weak-kneed aggregation known as the St. Joes to give him support. To be able to pitch in forty-five games during the season is a record no other pitcher in the Western league equaled in this year's championship race, and that his string of victories so nearly approximates his defeats with such miserable support as he received speaks volumes in his favor. Fisher has control at hia command probably to a greater extent than any pitcher in the Western league, and with the Brewers to back him up he should, pro viding his skill does not desert' him be one of the leading pitchers in the league next season. As manager of thp St. Joe and Omaha clubs this year, Fisher had a hard row to hoe, and to ward the end of the season he became discouraged. He was subsequently fined and then suspended by the St. Jot- club, and did not pitch in the last games the tail-enders played here at the close of the season. It was reported yesterday that the* Cleveland club had drafted Third Base man I.urko. of the Milwaukee club, but President Kiiiilea maintained last night that he had received no official infor mation that Burke had been taken, and President Johnson, of the Western league, had not received any notifica tion, either. VO\ I)ER AHH ULIFIANT. Sujh itHNi Bvuh and Rul>lmoii Are >lukiMK° « HIiiIT. BT. LOUIS, Oct. s.— "The present Cleveland team' will play in St. Louis next year," said President Muckenfuss, Of the St. Louis Browns, today. Fur ther than this he refused to talk. In the course of an interview on the same subject, Chris Yon der Ahe, who la still connected with the St. Louis Browns, snid: "Robison and Brush are bluffing when they say they will put the Cleveland team in here whether I like it or not. I am willing the Cleve lards should come in here and make Sportman's park their home, but when they come it must be on equal sharing terms or not at all. We are perfectly willing to divide the earnings of the Club and plant with the owners of the Cleveland club, but we are not willing to let them come here and run things as they please." HUNTERS FROM mill HUE. A Party of Twenty-Six Bound for l!in lanme Country.

Parson DavloK Decline* to Mnnng-e the Coroett-Met'oy Fight. ST. LOUIS, Oct. 5.— A special from New Orleans says: "Parson Davies, who is now managing two theaters here for John D. Hopkins, has just re ceived an offer by telegraph from the President, of the Hawthorne club, Buf falo, asking him to manage the coming Corbett-McCoy fight. The parson im mediately telegraphed his refusal. NOW IT IS SYRACUSE. Hawthorne C'lnh Secretary Says Bis Fight Will Occur There. BUFFALO, Oct. 5.— C. M. Wilson, secretary of the Hawthorne club, in an interview to day, said: '"You can say for me, as secretary of the Hawthorne club, that the Corbett-McCoy fight will take place in Syracuse." Mr. Wilson said later that the fight would take place Oct. 15, on the state fair grounds, just outside Syracuse. The grounds are very large and the Bite will accommodate thousands. PATCHES!! WON. Grejit Pacing Event in Which Jobn R. Gentry Was Worsted. ST. LOUIS, Mo., Oct. s.— The star feature at the fair grounds today was the pacing be tween Joe Patohen and John B. Gentry, Patchen winning in two straight heats, taking the first by a nose, iv 2:07, and the second by a length and a quarter, in 2:07V2. The first heat was very close and exciting. Patchen led all the way in each heat. In both heats they scored twice, getting away in the second break each time and in perfect order. There was no betting. Patchen had the pole, which he won by a nose, and it was only that ad vantage which enabled him to win the first he-at, as Gentry closed with a remarkable burst of speed, making up about % of a length in the last sixteenth of a mile. Patchen was much the stronger in the second heat. The two ran lapped the first three eighths of a mile, when Patchen drew away and showed daylight between the wheels of his sulky and Gentry's nose for one-quarter of a mile. Then Gentry began to close up, and a furlong from the finish had his nose almost to Patchen's withers, but when Marks called on the black horse he came' away in grand style, and won a very impressive vic tory. The track was a seeord slow; weather cloudy and cold. Summary: Joe Patchen, b. h., by Patchen Wilkea (Marks) 1 1; John R. Gentry, blk., h., by Ashland Wilkcs, (Andrews) 2 2.

BEAR ISLAND BATTLE Contlnneil from First Page. surprise, and when a volley w«a fired by the Indiana from their points of advantage the company for a minute was panic-stricken. 1 It was only for a moment, however, and then the voice of Gen. Bacon was heard cautioning the men to be cool and steady. MaJ. Wilkinson xepeated the remark and the BOldiera sought shelter at every spot. Volley after voHey was Bred by the Indians, whose location could only be determined by the smoke from their rifles. The company, at the command of Maj. Wilkinson, deployed as skir mishers and poured volley after volley into the brush from their Jorgensons." For th>> first five minutes the Indians Bred with much regularity, but after that only when there was a chance to do execution when a soldier showed himself. At 12 o'clock the Indies turned th<**r attention to the two .steamers and took particular pains to practice on the pilots. They were very skillful, and Marshal O'Connor, who was on the steamer Flora, gave orders to back away out of range. in the lake and head for Walker. This was done, and the last seen of the sol diers and deputy marshals they were crouched under the shelter of the bank of the lake, which afforded protection from the fire of the Indians. As the Flora steamed out into the lake a rifle bullet passed through the side of the pilothouse and struck Edward Harris in the left arm, shattering that member and making amputation necessary. Bullets flew thick and fast, but no oth er person was hit, although the sides and deck of the steamer were perforat ed with many bullet holes. The steamer Chief followed the course of the Flora immediately after Indian Inspector Tinker, the only passenger on board, had been shot in the left forearm and right leg. Marshal O'Connor proceeded by boat to the old Indian agency and, driving to the new agency building, notified Lieut. Humphrey of the attack. From the agency building Walker is about nine miles. Half of this was driven by Marshal O'Connor with a team and the remaining distance made on a run. The marshal was quite disappointed at the refusal of Lieut. Humphrey to go to the rescue of Gen. Bacon, but could do nothing. The steamer Flora was stocked with supplies, ammunition and rations, and started back for the scene of the battle at 5 o'clock. DULUTH'S VERSION BLOODY. Wild West Story of a General Mns. snere Received at the Zenith City. DUIiUTH, Minn., Oct. s.— (Special.)— A dispatch was received here tonight from Brainerd stating that a message had been received there to the effect that Gen. Bacon and his entire com mand, along with two newspaper cor respondents, had been massacred by the Indians at Bear Island. It is be lieved that while a detail of the troops were after reinforcements Gen. Bacon attempted to entrench himself, and while at this work was surprised by the Indians in an overwhelming body and slaughtered. Settlers are fleeing from their homes, as a general uprising is expected. If this occurs 3,000 fighting braves.will be in the field. The message that reached Brainerd asked that Washington be wired for 5,000 reinforcements, as a general upris ing is imminent. The Duluth companies have passed the word around to all the soldiers in the city to hold themselves in readiness to be called on ; APPEAL FOR AID. Rifles, Ammunition and Men Sent by Special to Walker. BRAIN ERD, Minn., Oct. s.— (Special.) —The authorities at Walker tonight wired Mayor Nevers, of this city, ask ing for 100 rifles and 100 rounds of am munition for each weapon. The rifles and ammunition were sent on a special train at 10 o'clock tonight. About thirty citizens, armed with Winchesters, went to Walker on the special also, besides several doctors, to assist in caring for the wounded. NO NEWS AT THE FORT. The Officers There Without Advices Direct From the Front. While no official advices of the fight were received at the fort yesterday or last night, an order was Issued by Lieut. Col. Harbach In the afternoon directing the quartermaster's depart ment to issue overcoats to the First battalion. Every man In Companies A, D and F was given an overcoat shortly after 6. Capt. Kennedy, officer of the day, also issued instructions that no one should be allowed to leave the reserva tion without a pass. The First battalion, comprising Com panies A, D and F, will probably leave today for Leech lake, in command of Capt. Kennedy and Capt. Gerlach. The troops are in readiness to move on very short notice. Then men have received entirely new outfits from Washington and many of the men who have an swered sick call since the return of the regiment from Cuba have ag-ain report ed for duty. * Considerable anxiety' was expressed for the safety of the men at the s<cene of trouble. The telegraph operator was on duty, but at the time of going to press nothing- had been heard from Gen. Bacon. At the headquarters building- nothing waa learned, and! the ;onlcers at the fort were in the dark, except as they heard the current rumors. All necessary preparations were made last nig-ht for the immediate departure of the First battalion this morning-, if needed by Gen. Bacon. Haversacks were packed and rumors were current that the whole regiment had been or dered North, but these couM not be verified by those in command. 001. Harbach stated yesterday after noon that his men would be in read iness to respond to a call for help on short notice. The men at the fort will turn out this morning- at 6 o'cl&cK and ration* for ten day» will be issued three com- panles. The battalion will doubtless leave on a special train. OFFICIAL INFORMATION. WnHliiiigrton Alarmed by the Serious Nature of the Indian l'prlNlu K . WASHINGTON, Oct. s.— Official dis patches received here tonight brought to the authorities the sudden realiza tion of an Indian uprising of more than ordinary dimensions. The dispatches began coming about 6 p. m., two of them coming: to Secretary Bliss, who, as head of the interior department, has charge of Indian affairs, and a third to Attorney General Griggs, from one of the United States marshals at the seat of the trouble. The first dispatch to Secretary Bliss was as follows: * Walker, Minn., Oct. s.— The Indians twenty. five miles from h^re on Bear Island opened flro on the troops under command of* Gen. Bacon without warning this morning at 11:30. I fenr the army in the field i* not strong enough to subdue the Bear Island Indians. How many are hurt on their side we cannot tell. A large force should be sent here at onre. It is now war, and the government must protect the people. I have a slight scratch on my arm and left leg. Please wire me In structions. -Tinker. Inspector. Another dispatch from Inspector Tin ker followed soon after as follow*: Troublo was caused by Indians firing u D on troops first; situation as bad as can be- feel- Ing among Indians hostile, and mean to fight to the end. More troops are needed They cannot get here too quick. —Tinker. Immediately on receipt of these dis patches Secretary Bliss went to the residence of Secretary Alger and had a talk with the head of the war depart ment as to the military steps which should be taken. While they were to gether a representative of the Asso ciated Pre^s called and handed them the press dispatch, giving: more extend ed details of the engagement between the troops and the Indians this noon Secretary Alger read the dispatch aloud and the tv/o secretaries agreed that the situation had reached a stage when energetic steps were needed. Turning to his military aide, Maj. Hopkins, Secretary Alger said: "Take those dispatches to Adjt. Gen. Corbin and tell him to have ample reinforce ments sent immediately. If need be have a special train secured and the reinforcements sent forward without delay. If it seems to be desirable to send along a gatling gun let that be done also." MESSAGE FROM MARSHAL. Maj. Hopkins went to the war de partment and delivered the message to the adjutant general. The latter in the meantime had received from the attorney general a dispatch received from the United States marshal as fol lows: Walker, Minn., Oct. s.— To the Attorney General: Have more troops sent here imme diately. Battle begun at Bear Island. Look for general uprising of Indians. Gen. Bacon in the field. —O'Connor. Marshal. The war department had received no dispatches from Gen. Bacon or from any of the military authorities in the department where the upris-ing had oc curred. This caused some surprise and doubt, and it left entirely open the question as to our list of casualties. It was noted that none of thj official dis patches had mentioned the casualties on our side, the only reference to this important point being in the press dis patch. Gen. Corbin was inclined to be lieve that the reports were magnified. Speaking as an old Indian fighter, he said Indian fights were apt to grow considerably after they had occurred. Moreover, Gen. Corbin felt that there was no need for apprehension, in view of the large number of troops within easy reach of Gen. Bacon, and immedi ately under his command. Gen. Bacon is the commanding offi cer of the department of Dakota, with headquarters at St. Paul, and the Third infantry Is stationed at Fort Snelling, just outside of St. Paul, so thaMf need be this large force could be called to Gen. Bacon's assistance. As command ing officer of the department, it was pointed out, there was no need of au thorizing Gen. Bacon to call for fur ther troops for his reinforcement, as he has the authority to move all the forces within his department if he deems such action necessary to meet the emergency. Aside from the Third infantry there are cavalry troops within easy reach of St. Paul and the seat of the trouble, although It was the view at the war department late tonight that Gen. Ba con would not have any need for any cavalry, if, indeed, he needed any in fantry beyond the hundred men now at the front. Gen. Corbln inclined to the view that 10U regulars were more than a match for all the Indiana which could be as sembled at the place of the present trouble. Gen. Bacon will be given a free hand, however, and every facility afforded him by the authorities here if he feels in need of reinforcements. INDIANS INVOLVED. Indian Commissioner Jones read the press reports of the conflict with great interest, but up to a late hour tonight had not received any advices from In dian Agent Sullivan, in charge of the White Earth agency, where the upris ing occurred. Mr. Jones had not ap prehended any serious trouble, as all recent official reports from White Earth had minimized the difficulties, and had rather discounted the apprehensions ex pressed in press advices. Word came yesterday that the In dians were about to hold a big council on the banks of Bear Lake, but said a raging storm prevented the Indians on one side of the lake getting across to the council grounds, so the meeting was put off until today. This council would, it was s>add, bring a satisfactory adjustment of the trouble. A dispatch was sent to the agent this morning, but the operator at White Earth re ported the agent had gone to Walker, near which point todays fight took pJace. "WORTH ITS WEIGHT IN GOLD." HOXBAN, I.

The trouble with the Bear island In dians, which has culrumated in blood shed, dates back almost two years. The details of the trouble have been fol lowed very closely by Chief Deputy United States Marshal Henry and from him was learned the story. About two years ago th^re was a shooting scrape near the Leech lake agency and Chief Bu^h Ear was want ed as a witness. Deputy Marshal War ren was sent to serve a summons o« him, and the old chief, after receiving the paper, burned it before the deputy's eyes and coolly informed him that he would decline to act in the capacity of a witness. A few days later a warranl was sworn out for Bush Ear, and he was arrested by Deputy Marshals War ren and To 1 man, but just as they were making ready to take him away from hLs tepee, fifteen of his tribesmen came to his rescue. The deputies were una ble to make a stand before so formida- I ble a force and withdrew without their ■ prisoner. Later warrants were sworn out for all of the fifteen Indians that had interferred, but they could never I be located, although a watch was kept i for them. About a year ago the Indians sent i word to Marshal O'Connor that they j wanted to hold a council with him. He j went to Leech lake and was informed j that if he would not molest the Indians for whom warrants had been issued un- j til April of the present year, that they j would come in and give themselves up ! at that time. Marshal O'Connor agreed to this and nothing was done until April, and at that time eleven of the ' fifteen Indians wanted appeared at the agency. They were placed under ar- : rest, tried and convicted, on charges of interfering with the officers, and were sentenced to thirty days each in the reservation jail at White Earth. During the time that they were con fined they were apparently in a most peaceful state of mind, except for the fact that they wanted to see Chief ; Bush Ear punished. They said that it ! was through him that they had gotten . in trouble and they thought tnat it was no more than fair that he should suffer the consequences as well as they. At | that time they were promised that if , the other men wanted could be found that they would be arrested and pun- ; ished, and efforts in that direction were made, but without success, unlil three weeks ago, when the payment | was made. Up to that time the men i wanted could not be found, but when they came to the agency to get their money they were placed under arrest by the Indian police and were turned over to the United States marshals, j Before the transfer could be made- the j fact that the Indians had be£-n arrested became generally known, and after 'they had been taken in charge by \he i marshals they were aga'.'n rescued, this ! time by about three hundred of their ' followers. It waft thf-n that it was de- 4 termined that the Indians must be giv- j en to understand that such acts would j not be tolerated. Chief Deputy Henry says that thi? band of Indiar.s has always been a hard lot to get along with. He was somewhat surprised to learn that three or four of the Ind.ans nad been anx ious to see Chief Bush Ear captured and punished were engaged with the rest in again rescuing him from the United States au:horities.
