The above conversation took place at the

THE BAOE ITSELF.
Teemer' Spurt for iho Lead ot Little Avail
A Very Pretty Contest at tho Mile-
niul-IInlr The Tame Finish.
About 5 o'clock the referee's boat moved
from the wharf and proceeded to the start
ing point. During the trip down betting
was somewhat brisk at 2 to 1 on Teemer.
Many bets, such as $60 to $30 and $100 to
J50, were made.
The water was tolerably fair. At places
it was a little lumpy, but, taking it all
through, the coarse was good.
Mr. St John, judge for Gaudaur, and
Mr. W. A. McPherson, of Boston, judge
for Teemer, tossed for choice of water, and
St. John won. He chose the inside, or
south side of the river. The stakeboats
were dispensed with, because of the crowd
of steamers, and the rowers agreed to get
into line by mutual consent

They had rested about three hours at the
Barnard cottage, near the starting point,
Saltsbnrg, and about 5:45 o'clock they were
at the mart. The referee soon had them in
line, and the word "go" was given before
they had been at the mark two minutes.
Teemer got the best hold of the water,
and, with a vigorous stroke, ho dashed off
with a good half length's lead. Gandaur
made a short stroke or two at the start, and
this enabled Teemer to increase his lead to
almost a length before 200 yards had r-een
covered. Teemer began at a 33 rate, that is,
he settled down to that after a few yards had
been rowed. Gaudaur's stroke was a little

until this afternoon, some time after 3
There has undoubtedly been considerable
anxiety about the race during the last few
days, and, to make a long story short, in the
way of introduction to the account of the
contest, it ma" be stated that Hamm and
Gandanr visited The Dispatch ofiice yes
terday and made a request that the race be
postponed, because they had been drugged
or poisoned on Thursday night at McKees
port IT WAS SIMPLY ASTOUNDIN G.
The'statement was more than surprising,
it was astounding. The two rowers, or at
least the trainer and the contestant in the
race could not see the referee (that is the
sporting editor of The DisrATcn), but
Mr. Hamm not only wired that gentleman
to see him about important business, but
leit the following significant letter in The
Dzae Sib Mr. Gandaur and I have been
hunting you all morning. We had a dose of
poison last night, and Gaudaur can row ro race
to-day. You will understand that we have the
right to object to the water, and we want a
postponement until Tuesday. Gaudaur will be
unable to row until then. Wo are Eoing to

Of course you will understand this is a private
communication, and, if you can grant us the
favor, I think it is due us from you.
Hamm asd Gaudaub.
After our consultation with St Jonn, we may
drop the race; so pay nothing in the way of
stakes away until you bear from us.
This letter was so startling in its story
that the referee soon saw St John. The
latter had in the meantime taken Gaudaur
to a prominent physician in this city, whose
name St John withholds for the present St
John, however, said that there was no doubt
whatever about an attempt being made to
drug or poison Gau-Isur.
WHAT ST. JOHN SAID OP IT.
St John was evidently much affected.and
during a private conversation with the
writer he said: "It is an absolute certainty
that Gaudaur has been tampered with, and
he tells me a story of how it was done that
is startling in the extreme. The physician
I have had examining him says he has swal
lowed a big dose of lobelia. Gaudaur is
sick, very sick at the stomach, and has

The writer reasoned with St John, with
the object of having Gaudaur row if possi-
' ble, because of the tremendous crowds going
to the race. After an exchange of opinions
St John said:

AT A KILLING BATE,
and he gradually left the St Louis man
inch by inch. Both were rowing a clean
stroke at the half mile; but Gaudaur was
certainly rowing with more ease than
Teemer. The latter was striking the water
a little deep, and pulling his scull through
the water with all the power that he pos
sessed. It was apparent that neitherTeemer
nor any man living could keep up the exer
tion he was under very long. Not even Ben
forth in his best day could do it
Teemer, to the uninitiated eye, looked
every inch an easy winner. It seemed as if
he was going to "walk" leisurely away from
Gaudaur, but the latter got settled down to
a powerful and most effective swing of about
31 to the minute, and when the mile had
been covered Gaudaur had, apparently,
Tcemer's measure. The latter was working
away with his vigorous and powerful stroke,
but Gaudaur, though stiiking slower, was
jnst beginning to get a little more speed on
his boat than the McKeesporter.
TEEMEK'S OVW TACTICS.
During this time Teemer had been press
ing Gaudaur dangerously near the shore, so
much so that several times it looked as if
the St Louis sculler would be stranded.
Had he fouled Teemer then the race would
certainly have been his (Gaudaur's). How
ever, Tecmer's pace began to wane at a
mile and ahalf. Gaudaur began to creep
up, and at this point the race was as pretty
and exciting as anybody would wish to see.
Teemer saw'Goudaur closing on him, and a
desperate struggle ensued. They both
rowed like demons, Teemer still forcing
Gaudaur close to the shore. A tugboat lay
ahead and Teemer rowed outside and Gau
daur inside. Neither lost an inch by it, and
when they were clear Gaudaur had gotten
very near to Teemer.
Al. Hamm now figured on the course.
He was apparently ahead of both rowers far
enough to be out of their way, and nearing
the two-mile noint, or what was supposed to
be the two-tnile point, he rowed lrom the
snore into mid stream ahead or both rowers.
Just at this stage Teemer, who had been
rowing too iar in-shore, made an abrupt
deviation for mid stream.
AVOIDING TnE JETTT.
There was a jetty ahead of the rowers,
projecting from the south shore, and it was
necessary that Teemer should strike very
rapidly into mid stream to get clear of it lar
enough to allow Gaudaur to clear it It
really seemed as if Teemer got too near the
jetty fu Gaudaur's water, and was fearfnl
of the consequences of forcing Gaudaur
into it However, Teemer made a remark
able course from the shore, his boat going
nlmcst athwart the stream. Gaudaur fol
lowed him a certain distance, and then
struck a straight course for home. Hamm
was now certainly well out of the way of
"When the rowers trot fairly straightened
for home Gaudaur was safely in front, and
rowing well. His stroke was as powerful as
ever, and his boat was movine swiftlv on an
even keel. Teemer was not displaying, by
far, the same vigor that he did during the
first mile or the mile and a half. Without
any extra effort Gaudaur, with an effective
drag of about 27 per minute, gradually left

(SPECIAL TXLEORAK TO TIM DISrATCH.l
Habeisbueo, September 13. The State
Floods Belief Commission shut itself up in
the consulting room of the Supreme Court
Judges this afternoon, and for three hours,
in the absence of any reporters, who were re
fused admittance, listened to statements ot
a committee which represented claimants
from what is known as the Jersey shore
district, covering ten townshiDS and two
boroughs, and discussed various suggestions
looking to a final distribution of the fund on
hand for the relief of the sufferers by the
floods, estimated by Secretary Kremer to
aggregate about 81,500,000. All the mem
bers were present except Mayor Filler, of
Philadelphia, and Mr. Marvin, of Pitts
burg. JERSEY SHOBE CLAIMS.
Captain P. D. Bricker, of Jersey Shore,
and Bev. J. A. Patton, of Waterville,
Lycoming county, made sturdy claims for a
big slice of the relief fund for their suffering
constituents, whose losses, according to
sworn statements submitted, amounted to
$498,000. The commission agreed to allow
$30,000, in addition to 7,500 previously dis
tributed for the relief of these flood suffer
ers, and $100,000 to the Wiiliamsport dis
trict The main nuroose of the meeting was to
arrive at a basis for the final distribution of
the amount of the contributions to which
the people of Johnstown and vicinity were
entitled. FoH examination was made of
various claims presented from different sec
tions of the State. It was ascertained that
in several counties the final distribution
has been made, and that in others payments
are in progress, while some districts have
failed to completo their schedules.
A PLAN FOB JOHNSTOWN.
The question as to how to make the dis
tribution of the main fund in the Cone
maugh Valley, as to these people the
large bulk of the money will go, was
earnestly discussed. A sub-committee, con
sisting of Messrs. Ogden and Beeves, of
Philadelphia, and Miller, of Pittsburg,
submitted plans of distribution for consid
eration as gathered from statements sub
mitted to the commission, which was un
able to come to a conclusion at the first con
ference, and adiourned to meet at the
Grand Hotel in the hope of reaching an
agreement looking to the immediate dis
tribution of the available relief fund.
After the commission had partaken of a
substantial supper ex-Bepresentative Hanna
and J. H. Brown, of Johnstown, members
ot the committee of inquiry appointed to
ascertain the losses of about G,000 people,
were called before it
THE SWOBN LOSSES.
This committee had sworn statements to
show that the losses in the Conemaugh Val
ley, without counting those of the Pennsyl
vania Bail road Company, the Cambria Iron
Works and other corporations, aggregated
about 8,000,000. The committee also showed
that $565,000 had been distributed among
the sufferers, that the losses ranged from ?5
to $165,000, and that 190 people had suffered
to the extent of $10,000 and over by the
bursting of the South Fork reservoir.
The commission adjourned three-quarters
of an hour after midnight, after having de
cided to distribute $1,600,000 among the
flood sufferers of Conemaugh Valley, in ad
dition to the sums received by them. It
will go to over 4,000 claimants, under tho
supervision of Secretary Kremer, of the
Flood Commission, in conjunction with the
Johnstown Committee of Inquiry. Proba
bly two weeks time will be required to com
plete the work of distribution.

declared further that one of the guilty men

New xobk, September 13. Policeman
David Fenton, of Hoboken, says he heard
someone calling "Help! Help!" out on the
meadows, near Jackson street, early this
morning. He saw Charles Kressler in his
shirt sleeves waving a red flag made of a
red bandanna handkerchief tied to a broom
stick from the second-story window of a
house 300 feet back from the street. The
water in the meadows was three feet deep,
and it was up to the window on the firsr
floor of the house. Kressler was evidently
in distress. A pile offlumber stood in front
of a new building a block away, and Fenton
made the man in distress understand that
he would come to him. Then he got enough
of the lumber to make a raft and lashed it
together with ropes.
While he was at work three women came
to the window where Kressler was standing,
and watched him at work. They were
Krcssler's wife and two daughters. The
officer pushed the raft to the house with a
pole, "when he climbed in the second story

and, by many, regarded as his best official

in Pittsburg are delighted with this fresh
proof of the occipital length pertaining to
the junior Senator from Pennsylvania.

friend of Senator Quay states that the ex
perience of the last campaign in the im
mense task of securing money for the enor
mous lesitimate expenses incurred by the
dissemination of campaign literature and
other essentials, caused the Beaver
statesman to don his thinking
cap. There were many disadvantages
implied in the raising of campaign funds
upon the SDur of the moment Firstly, the
valuable time of influential gentlemen has
had to be employed, in many instances, in
drumming up contributions. Secondly, it
would be exhibiting a faith that was at once
childlike and bland
to imagine that all contributions made to
the National Committee reached that body
intact; and lastly, that in no campaign in
the past hud the National Committee been
able to exactly compute what it would have
to so upon. This last consideration was
one of crave import when, in a national
campaign, so much territory had to be cov
ered, and an erroneous calculation of ways
and means might result in the loss of a
close State from the Bepublican column.
It is emphasized that no secrecy in the
mat'er is implied or intended in the careful
corking up of the details of the new scheme,
so far as the newspapers were concerned, up
to the present time. It has been merely de
sired to ascertain whether or no the "reserve
fund" idea would strike a popular chord.
The Dispatch violates no confidence in
statin c that this plan is simply an impor
tant adjunct to a most systematic plan ot
campaign for thefuture behoof of the Bepub
lican party. The idea is to have annual
direct contributions to the Bepublican Na
tional Committee, maturing by the terms of
the certificate receipt, on the 1st day of Sep
tember of each year. )
The certificates will be placed in the Be
publican ranks from Maine to California,
and will be registered in the books of the
National Committee. That august body
will be able to tell to a dot just how much
money can be depended upon, without re
sorting to contributors used to giving
larger amounts, but much more difficult to
approach and enlist. Its very character of
a "popular" subscription is depended upon
as an offset to the archaic opposition howls
about monopolists and millionaires.
The following hurried resume of the polit
ical situation is given by one ot Senator
Quay's adherents, who says:
"No time will be lost in getting the first
annual payment in, as there are several
campaigns now in progress, and the Na
tional Committee hears the Macedonian cry

elections arc pending iu Virginia and Ohio,
and the first elections under the new con
stitutions are in progress in North Dakota,
Washington, Montana and South Dakota.

"In Virginia, the armed truce existing

ISrXCIAI. TELEGRAM TO THE DISFATCH.1
Washington, September 13. It was a
wet and cheerless throng of Ohio Bepubli
can office-holders that met at Senator Sher
man's residence to-night to welcome the
Senator home from Europe. The Senator's
speech did not warm them up, at all. He
never mentioned Foraker's name, saying
simply: "As for Ohio, she always comes
right side up." His old friend and cham
pion, Mahone, the Senator lauded to the
skies, but he had not one word for Foraker.
The coldest stab of all was given President

:fnd expect that he will be sustained and
encouraged by a Bepublican Congress."
The Bepublicans who heard this remarka

it means. As soon as ex-Speaker Keifer

Ford. On his return with the doctor the
woman was dead. Dr. Ford refused to give
a death certificate.
Coroner Booney asked Mr. Olsen if he,
would wait for the intervention of Divine
Providence if he saw a man drowning, and it
was in his power to save him.
Mr. Olsen said: "I have no faith in physi
cians mvself. This young woman had none
and I did not care to interfere. I put no
obstacle in her way to have a physician,
and I actually summoned Dr. Ford." The
Coroner instructed County Physician Shep
ard to make anautopsy. -
Mr. Olsen said to-day: "I and all the
members of my family have no faith in the
Eower of physicians to euro bodily ills. We
elieve that when our time comes we must
die and that
no eabthlt help
will avail. This girl knew she was going to
die and was perfectly resigned to her fate. I
would not attempt to save a life that was
claimed by its Maker."
Olsen is a 'longshoreman, 35 years old,
and he bas not, it is said, been sick a day in
his life. He is spoken of by his neighbors
as a sober and industrious man. Four or
five months ago, it is said, he allowed one of
his children to die without calling in a '
physician. He has been a regular attend
ant at some faith cure meetings recently
held in Temperance Hall, in Hamilton
Dr. Ford thinks that Miss Olsen's life
might have been saved if the proper reme
dies had been applied. He said: "As soon
as I saw the girl on Monday I concluded
that she had typhoid fever, but the symp
toms were not especially alarming. I left a
prescription to have put up and also di
rected how the medicine was to be used.
FOUND HEB DEAD.
"The next X heard of the case was last
night, when I was hurriedly called to the
house. . I fonnd the girl dead. I was sur
prised to learn they had not only not given
the medicine I had ordered, bat had not
even had the prescription pat up. The girl,
I think, died of their neglect There is no
doubt about it The only thing these people
did was to nurse her and perform their
incantations over her, waving their
hands over her, patting her on the body,and
praying for her recovery. These people
should be taken charge of and a stop put to
their outrageous ceremonies."
This afternoon Dr. Ford made a formal
complaint to Coroner Booney against Carl
Olsen, especially for neglecting to cany out
bis instructions about the prescription, and
the Coroner issued a warrant for Olsen's ar
rest. Olsen was arrested.
