THE RKFEHEE TUAB OF HIS CALL,
OX THE CHIEF EXECU
TIVE.
MADE THE LATTEK FEEL GOOD.
1 m-il to Do a Little noxlng
IliniMfll'. So He Hun So Pre
jire Against the
Game.
Prof. George Biler'a recent call on Gov.
Van Saint is deFeribed by him in the Chi
cago Tribune of yesterday em follows.:
Minnosotii, which has been dead, pugl
llsttcally speaking, for about ten years,
resurrern-.l Itself for a few days this
weok; Lhen crawled into its grave again.
It made its appearance on the pugilistic
earth a couple of weeks ago at Minne
apolis when Tommy Ryan knocked out
Frank Scott under the name of Judge.
That lK>ut was supposed to be powerful
tenough to keep the pugilistic corpse
alive. And I really belive it was if the
Y. M. ('. A. had not requested Gov. Van
Sant tn kilt it again.
Whik> the Ryan-Seott-Jiulfe contest
was pending several parties interested
In pugilism and the linanclal. end of the
sport matched Ole Olson and Young Mo
watt. Tom Cody and Harry Forbes and
Morris Elausch and Jack O"Keefe—they
had everything cut and dried—and In
formed the contestants and their manag
ers that the authorities-, from the gov
ernor down, were in favor of the sport
if handled with care. They secured the
Exposition building, billed the cities_ of
Minneapolis and St. Paul, and had every
thing iii apple-pie order. Unfortunately
there nap] ened to be a convention of the
V. M. </. A. at Mankato, a little town
outside of Minneapolis, and the promo
ters bin! noc interviewed them regarding
the contests.
Whetlu r that would have helped mat
ters any 1 am not at liberty to state.
At an} rate the Y. M. O. A. did not
want th. fair name of the state of Min
nesota defamed by pugilism, called Gov.
Van Sant's attention to the proposed
contests and requested him to prevent
them. The promoters had received a
permit from Mayor Ames, of Minneapo
lis, and naturally thought that was all
they required. The governor, however,
took the bull by the horns and notified
the mayor not to permit the contests.
This brought on a wordy tilt between
the governor and the mayor, and the lat
ter announced he -would stop all athletic
games where In life anl limb were in dan
ger. Jn liis manifesto fie included foot
ball baseball, basketball and bicycling,
and went so far as to instruct the chief
of police to prevent those games.
The Bports naturally took sides with
the m;iy":\ while the Y. M. C. A. and
the clergy patted the governor on the
back
I was sflected to referee the bouts, and
dropped into Minneapolis on the after
noon of the night the contests were to
3iave taken plane. Mayor Ames was
3>iqued and did not mince his words while
raking the governor over the coals. He
said the lovers of boxing were as much
entitled to their branch of sport as were
those who fancied football and other
games. Being so near the capital of the
state, I thought I would take a run down
to St. Paul and have a chat with the gov
ernor. 1 found him at the Aberdeen
hotel and had no difficulty in securing
an lnter\ iew. In fact, the governor was
extremely cordial and a little inclined to
ilattery. "Every man, woman and child
In the United States knows of you," he
declared, "so why should I not consider
It a pleasure to meet you?'
When I asked him -why he prevented
the boxing contests he said:
"To be ii;M'.k with you, £iier," he said,
"they are unlawful, and as the executive
officer of tbe state I must enforce the
law."
"Why did >ou not stop the Ryan-Judge,
contest?" 1 asked.
• "Because l knew nothing of 11 and had
not the Y. M. C. A. folks;, the ministers,
and others called my attention to the
prize tights that were to be held tonight
1 would have known nothing of them."
"There was no intention of pulling off
prize tights, governor; merely boxing
matches," l suggested.
"You maj term them boxing matches,
Siler, Imi scores of persons come to me
and say: "Governor, they are prize
lights, [f they were not there would be
no n< >c! for George Siler. You can de
pend upon ir, governor.' They say that
whenevt r George Silt-r appears upon the
bc< ac there will be a prlzr> fight.' "
1 tried in explain the difference between
a prize tight and a boxing contest anl
that I had been engaged to prevent bru
tality" "!ind knockouts; also that the boys
engaged to !>ox were featherweights and
well sci< UC4 d.
"That may be true, Sil. r, but boxing
ches, according to th^- law which was
amended in 1893, are unlawful, and there*
fore must be prohibted. I am a lover of
yo.<d boxing, and I assure you I would
not prevent these contests had my at
tention not been called to them. I am
not spying around the state looking for
prize tights, and I have so much othar
business to look after I do not find time
to read the sporting columns of tho
papers. Our laws against boxing may bo
bad, but nevertheless they must be en
forced, and by enforcing them the peo
ple can judge for themselves whether
they should or ought to i.■<> amended."
Gov. Van Sant talked intelligently ot
old time prize lighters, such as Tom
Hyer, Yankee Sullivan, John Morrissey.
and John C. Heeman, and the high
esteem in which he held them when he
was a youngster;
"I boxed some when I was a young fel.
low. and was considered pretty good, >f
J do say it myself, but 1 am too stout
to box now, c\en though 1 were so in
clined," he declared.
WIU. HELP GOOD HOADS.
Oifllcoi-N Klected by the League of
American Wheelmen.
An event which augurs much for the
E<.»od roads movement in this country
was the annual meeting of the League
of American Wheelmen at Philadelphia
last week. The progressive element in
the membership was victorious in the
election of officers, and an entirely new
administrative policy will now be in
•rder.
In the election of Senator Horatio S.
Earle-, of Michigan, to the presidency
the cause of good roads was immeasur
ably benefited. He is unquestionably the
foremost worker for highway improve
ment in th.' United States "today, and
with ampie ability and tho necessary re
sources at his command will place the
good roads movement upon a more pro
gressive basis than it haj been hereto
fore.
Mr. Earle is comparatively a new man
in L. A. W. official circles, but in his
two years service as chief consul of the
Michigan division he has been so aggres
sive and so practical that the results of
Ills work have been felt in all the di
vtsions and eventually landed him in the
president's chair.
First Vice President George C. Pen-
t hrouic Xa»al Catarrh jpoLsous
every breath that is drawn Into the lungs.
There is procurable from any druggist
the remedy for its cure. A small quanti
ty of Ely's Cream Balm psaced Into tha
nostrils spreads over an inflamed and an
gry surface, relieves Immediately ths
painful irflammatlon, cleanses, heals and
cures. Drying Inhalants, fumes, smokes
and snuffs simply develop dry catarrh;
they dry up the secretions which adhere
to the membrane and decompose, caus
ing a far more serioua trouble than tho
ordinary.form of catarrh. Avoid all dry
ing inhalants, use Ely'a Cream Balm. It
is reliable and will cure catarrh, cold in
the head and hay fever easily and pleas
antly. All druggists sell It at 50 cents, or
it will be mailed by Ely Brothers, 56 War
ren St., N. Y.
Nell, of New York, is one of the veterans
of the league. During his connection with
the organization he has held many state
and national offices, including his present
position of vice consul In the New York
division. He is numbered among the
" energetic members who have been chaf
ing under the ultra-conservatism which
has heretofore prevailed, and will make
a consistent co-worker with President
Karle, to whom he will be especially val
uable because of his long service. '
Second Vice President Howell, of Con
necticut, was one of the ablest chief con
suls in the service, of the league. He
was at the head of the Connecticut di
vision during the years when the L. A.
\Y. was securing wheelmen's rights and
privileges—when it was making its pow
er felt in all sections. For two years
he has been chairman of the national
membership committee, and to his ef
forts is largely due the respect in which
L. A. W". membership is now held.
Treasurer Tattersall, one of the most
competent officers the league has ever
had, and an able financier, enters upon
his fourth term with a unanimous re
election.
Secretary Bassett, who has spent twen
ty-one years in the service of the league,
will again be in charge of headquarters
at Boston. He is, perhaps, the best
known wheelman in the country, and his
retention Is an assurance that the office
of secretary will be competently admin
istered.
Since the election last week the new
officers have been busily engaged in ac
quainting themselves with the duties of
thoir officers and in the preparation of
plans for the year's work. They are
making no rash promises, saying noth
ing they cannot substantiate when neces
sary, but they are positively confident
that this year will witness many solid
and substantial gains in league work and
in membership. Some of the plans al
ready outlined are upon lines winch will
command the willing support or all
friends of good roads, and are consider
ed with a view to making them the first
moves in a campaign which will place
the question of highway improvement
sijuarely before the people of every state
as the greatest economic necessity of the
period.
NATIONAL, LEAGUE MEETING.
Some Important Mutters to Come Ip
for Consideration.
NEW YORK, Feb. 24. — The annual
schedule meeting of the National league
will commence tomorrow at the Fifth
Avenue hotel. The principal matter
which will be considered will be the sub
ject of the recognition of the players by
the magnates, which, it is thought, may
avert al! danger of a war._ At the last
meeting the league players were refused
a hearing. The schedule will probably be
adopted Wednesday.
Another interesting feature of the
meeting will be the possibility of numer
ous deals being consummated. New York
will probably see many new faces.
President Charles Zimmer, of the Pro
tective association arrived in town today,
and at the earliest possible moment will
present the players' claims to the mag
nates. Zimrner says he has received a
formal invitation to appear before the
league, and has", accepted it on behalf of
the players' organization.
President Young has prepared the play
ing schedule for the coming season, but
it is doubtful it" the document will be
given to the public until the American
league question has been thoroughly gone
over by the magnates.

DESCRIBES THE ROUT.
A correspondent of the Daily Mail,
with Hanniker's column, wiring Satur
day, says:
Gen. Dewet was routed yesterday by
Col. Plumer, with whom were Cols. Men
niker, Craddock, Jeffries and Grebb.
This success was preceded by a series of
desperate attempts on the part of the
Boers to escape from the water belt of
the Orange and the Brak rivers.
Gen. Dewet, after, unsuccessfully at
tempting to cross the Brak at Klip Drift
and the Orange at Reds Drift, moved
along the bank of the Orange with one
gun and one pompom and laagered oppo
site Kamiel Drift. At dawn Col. Plumer
left Welgevordon, twenty-two miles west
of the Boer camp, and moved north. At
Zuregat he attacked the enemy, taking
forty prisoners. The pursuit was con
tinued during the afternoon, the Boera
moving toward Hopetown. Toward even
i :g the leading troops sighted the ene
my, who had laagered beyond ■ range.
The column charged the spot where the
laager was, capturing the whole of it.
The Boers fled, leaving their horses,
ready saddled, and their cooking pots full.
According to the latest reports only 400
Boers recrossed to the north side of the
river. The Orange is greatly swollen.

SOL.DIF.KS' MnXIJIEXT TO BE DED
ICATED AT LAKKWOOD O.\
MEMOKIAI, DAY
PREST NORTHROP WILL SPEAK
Project to Erect v Memorial to
the Dead Soldiers Is One
of Long Stund
iiifi.
Memorial day ctlebration this year will
bo out of the usual order. Instead of
having a big parade down town and a
pjMic meeting at the Exposition build
ing, the exercises will be held at Lake
wood cemetery in the afternoon. The
orator of the day will be President
Northrop, of the state university, and his
address will be a dedicatory one, for on
May 30 a soldiers' monument will have
been erected on the Grand Army lot in
the cemetery.
The arrangements for the celebration
have not been definitely decided upon.
A. H. Runge, asistant chief of the fire
department, will be the grand marshal,
and numerous committees have been ap
pointed to take charge of different por
tions of the work.
The matter of the parade is a puzzle.
In former years the \eterans and the
civic bodies have usually formed on
Tenth street and Second avenue south
and marched down Nicollet avenue to the
Exposition building. But with the prin
cipal exercises at Lakewood it would ap
pear as if some other arrangements
would have to be made.
One plan that has been suggested is to
have the veterans form at Lake street
and Hcnnepin avenue and march to
Lakewood. Another suggestion Is that
the civic bodies and as many veterans
as can parade down tov/n in the morn
ing. Just what plan will be followed will
be determined later. Chairman Towler
and two other members of the general
comn.ittoe will confer with W. K. Hale
and the other membtrs of the monument
committee, and'the result of this confer
ence will probably indicate the plan to be
followed.
The following are the chairmen of the
subcommittees of the general Memorial
<\-.\y committee: Morning programme, N.
U. Beden; invitations, H. Long-staff; gen
eral observance of the day, E. S. Chase:
schools, J. F. Perry; transportation, \V.
F. Corbett; graves, L. L Locke; press,
31. A. Tierney; general programme, R. R.
Henderson; music, A. W. Force; flowers,
C. O. Pierce; decorations, G. W. Nash;
badges, F. J. Baldwin; auditing, J. F.
Perry.
The soldiers monument project has
been one of long standing. Some yean
ago the legislature appropriated $".,000 for
a monument to be erected on the Grand
Army lot at Lakewood, and the Minne
apolis school children raised $500 more.
But It was decided that it was not
enough and the legislature has been
asked to appropriate an additional $4,Qo<\
The monument will be twenty-four feet
high with a base twplve feet square. Op
this will be a Greek pedestal fourteen
feet" ln height. The figure will be of a
soldier in standard bronze ten feet high.
The soldier is to be in an easy "at rest'
position, with musket in front, the stock,
of the gun being down.
On the face of the monument, in letters
of the Greek style, will appear this de
feign:
• G. A. B. :
: 1861-18G3.
The model for the figure was made in
New York. The easting will be done by
the Ames bronze foundry of Chicopei,
Mass.

WAS IT A SLUSH FUND?
Michigan. Attorney Indicted for
Transfer of a Sum of Money.
CHICAGO, Feb. 24.—Lant K. Salisbury,
city attorney of Grand Rapids, Mich.,
who was indicted by the Cook county
grand jury last week, charged by Guy
C. Barton, an Omaha millionaire, with
confiscating $59,000 claimed by Barton
from a safety deposit vault in Chicago,
was in conference with Barton and other
interested parties today trying to com
promisu their differences.
Salisbury arrived in Chicago late last
night in the company of a party of law
yers and private detectives. Some time
after midnight they appeared at the
Grand Pacific hotel, and there they re
mained all day today behind closely
guarded doors, but up to a late hour to
night it was said they had be'en unable
to reach a satisfactory agreement..
The mysterious transactions of which
the indictment of the Grand Rapids city
attorney is an outcome, according to a
statement made by one of the attorneys
in the case, involves a $4,000,000 contract,
which it was proposed to let in connec
tion with a new system of water works
for Grand Rapids. Barton, It Is said,
was a bidder for the contract. According
to the statement of the lawyer the $50,
--000 in question was to be used by Salis
bury in furthering the interests of the
contractoi. Friends of the Grand Rapids
man state that he took the money out
of the original vault, where it had been
deposited in escro by Barton ana him
self, and deposited it in another vault
of his own selection "merely as a mat
ter of self-protection." The box in the
vault is said to have been rented in the
name of William Woods, and it was ow
ing to this fact that the indictment was
returned against "One Salisbury, alias
William Woods."
Lawyer W. S. Forest, who has been re
tained by Mr. Salisbury, stated tonight
that his client would stand trial under
the indictment, and that tomorrow he
would be ready to go into the criminal
court and give bond in any required sum
for his appearance for trial.

the case tonight, but intimated that the
$50,000 Involved was no longer in the pos
session of Salisbury.
The Record tomorrow will say:
Salisbury brought with him from Grani
Rapids $50,000 in bills which he borrowed
it is said, from several persons, after de.
tectives had told him the nature of theii
visit to the city. On his arrival hen
this money was shown-to the complain
ants in the case, but was retained in tin
possession of Salisbury.
The original $50,000 was deposited bj
Barton in a safety deposit vault in this
city.
The purpose of Salisbury borrowing
the money in Grand Rapids, after h<
knew he was to be brought back to Chi
cago, is said to have been to have th<
money to show or return if circumstances
None of tho parties to the case wouH
make a attttement of the results of tin
all-day conference. Attorney Forest
counsel for Salisbury, said:
"There is nothing to say about the casi
except that it is a whole lot of nothing.
Salisbury will go from this hotel. whore
he is practically in custody, straight tc
the office of the state's attorney in the
morning. As between the partly In
volved, there is nothing to settle"
Stat"'s Attorney Deneen said:
"There will be no quashing of the in
dictment against Salisbury. The £oui
witnesses who appeared before the grand
jury gave evidence sufficient, as 1
thought, to warrant the Indictment. The
case will be prosecuted regardless of any
agreement which may be reached by the
parties, and any adjustment out of court
is unwarranted."
