" Howe, of CleTelsnd, Talks Plainly About
the Brotherhood's Outlook.
GENEBiL BPOETIKG HEWS OP TBE DAI
A well-known authority on trotting races
talks interestingly about the prospects of
that sport. He thinks it will becotne more
popular than running races. Tommy Dan
forth writes from San Francisco issuing a
plain challenge to Delaney. A Youngs
town ball player does a noble act Interest
ing opinions about the Brotherhood's plans
are still current Frank G. Belee has been
signed to manage the Boston club.
A -well-known and jovial authority on
trotting and pacing matters, who locates in
this city occasionally, arrived here from
Ohio yesterday. He talked very enthusi
astically about his favorite snort and made
a few interesting statements. In his opin
ion there is a very great future for trotters
and pacers in this country, and he does not
hesitate to say that that class of racing will
eventually be more popular tban running races
can ever be. During bis conversation he said:
'During my travels last week 1 met W. H.
Crawford, and he tells me that he will leave for
California. Some nine ago, as jon know, Mr.
Crawfoid wanted to buy Stamboul, the Califor
nia stallion. The price asked was too high.and
after some discussion about the merits of the
horse he bet the owners of the horse $5,000 that
the'latter would not make a record of 2:12 be
fore next January. So far Stamboul has failed
to get below 2:16, and as next January 1 is fast
approaching Mr. Crawford thinks he has the
bet won. I don't think the horse will get down
to 2:12 this year, whatever he may do next
MAT TACKLE THE EECOED.
'It may be that Mr. Crawford will take his
120,000 2-jear-old stallion Constantino to Cali
fornia to try and beat the 2-year-old record of
AxtelL Budd Doble intends to take his entire
string of horses, except Axtell, to California
this winter, so that there will be plenty of
profitable racing there."
"I am thoroughly convinced," continued the
speaker, "that trotting races are, superseding
everything else in the racing line. The extra
ordinary snecess of the past season proves this.
For example, take the recent trotting meeting
at Lexington. What a tremendous success it
was, and what a comparative failure the run
' ning was at the same place. The truth is there
is more money being invested In trotters and
pacers than the public is aware of. These large
investments are most assuredly popularizing
the sport The enormous prices that are every
now and again being paid for trotting hones
make the public curious, and everybody rushes
to the tracks to see the costly wonders. An
other feature that is adding to the popularity
of the sport is the greit number of
stake races that take place every year, and
this class of races is Increasing every year.
They yield the winner just as much on an aver
age as the running races, while the expenses
are much lighter. The big investments that
have recently been made in trotting stock nave
brought a very wealthy ana educated class of
people into the business, and this will undoubt
edly contribute greatly to its success.
POPULAR DOWN SOUTH.
"A short time ago I had a. tour down South,
andj was soon convinced that everybody was
becoming fascinated with trotting races down
there. It is safe to say that in a short time
Nashville will become a great trotting center.
I understand that efforts are being made to
establish a big circuit in that section of the
country, and if that is done it will be jnst as
important a circuit as we have here in
the ast By forming a circuit in the
South we will then have a consummation
for which hundreds of ns devoutly wish. We
will then have trotting meetings almost all the
year tbrooEh. The Southern circuit can start
operations in early spring, and close just as our
grand circuit opens. Oh, yes! first-class trot
ting races will get back to Wttsburg. I am
confident of that We may not be able to have
them next year, but I venture to say that we
will have big meetings herein 1891. When I
was at the Lexington meeting almost all the
prominent owners and winners were asking me
about Pittsburg. They all like to come here,
and they regret extremely the course which
events have taken in this city. However, as
soon as the course is clear for big meetings
here, there will be plenty of outside help to
make them a big success."
He Think the League Flayer Will Remain
Where They Are.
Philapelphia, October 27. When ques
tioned regarding the story sent out from the
West, in which it was stated that the National
League, and American Association would con
solidate, and the minor players be purchased
and classified, Al Reach said to-night:
'There is nothing whatever in the story. It
is manufactured entirely out of the whole cloth.
There is no likelihood bf an amalgamation of
the League and Association, nor of the minor
league players being purchased as a whole by
anybody. Right here 1 would venture to. pre
dict that the League players will be found
playing with League clubs next season. Not
that I do not bslieve that an attempt will be
made to organize a Brotherhood league, for I
think the leaders in that move are in earnest,
and will do their best to cany the project
through; but the more I hear of the matter the
more I become convinced that the cool-headed
players will decide to hold on where tbey arc,
on the principle that 'a bird in the baud is
worth two in the bush.' "
The following players have signed' with the
Athletic club up to this evening: Welch, Sew
ard, Robinson, Lyons. Bausewine and Charles
Esjer, a new pitcher from the Royal Smyrna
club, a team composed of carpet rug weavers.
He is said to be a good one.

President Spnldlfis Undecided About the
Chicago, October 27. Concerning the visit
of Von der Abe. President Spalding says:
"Von der Abe w In Chicago upon business
of a personal nature, and did not say enough
upon the snbject of consolidation to warrant
the belief that he had formulated any plans or
had come to Chicago to discuss them."
"He did broach the subject, then T"
"Yes, in a general way, but the idea is not a
new one. It has been talked of for several
years to my knowledge."
"Will consolidation be the result of the
"I cannot say. The Chicago club has done
nothing in the direction of consolidation or
any other plan for next season. With the ex
ception of a telegram from Colonel Rogers,
who wanted to know what truth there was in
the report printed in the' Philadelphia papers
to the effect that I would get out an injunction
against my players if they did not 3ign by Sat
urday night, I have not received a communica
tion from any League official for two weeks
and over. Our lawyers have assured us that
we can enjoin our reserved players, but I am
by no means certain that we shall apply for.
one. We may decide to let such of our re
served players as may refuse to sien, play their
string ont as they Bee fit I don't say we will
enjoin them and I don't say we will not. At
any rate, such action would not be taken be
fore next spring."
"All that anyone knows of the Brotherhood's
intentions has been learned from the newspa
pers. There is nothing of a sufficiently authen
tic nature to warrant action upon our part. The
Brotherhood some time ago asked for a confer
ence looking toward adjusting certain clauses
in the existing contract objectionable to the
players. The League has expressed its willing
ness to enter into such a conference, and so the
"Suppose the Brotherhood takes no action
unon the League's communication!"
"Well, in that case the League will let the
matter rest as it is. It will not notify the
Brotherhood a second time. As to the rumored
troubles, they will be dealt with when we know
what we have got to face probably at the an
nual meeting of the League in November; pro
vided, of course, the rumored revolt is verified
by action of the players' organization. At
present however.! am by no means .sure there
will be a revolt The players of the Chicago
club have each been paid off In full for last
season and have gone to their respective
homes. If any one of them bad a grievance he
said nothing about it to me. On the contrary,
all expressed themselves as well satisfied.
"But all refused to sign contracts for 1890, did
"That is true, and their reasons for refusing,
I have no donor, have been told definitely.
Thev are simply deferring a renewal of their
present contracts in the hope that existing
objectionable features may be eliminated at
the League meeting. Matters can probably be
adjusted, provided the players are not un
reasonable in their requests. If, on the other
hand, they have refused to sign because tbey
propose violating the reserve clause of their
contracts, that is a different matter. In neither
event however, can Isayat present wbataction
the Chicago club will take. I am sure, how
ever, that it has taken no action whatever up
to the present time. I am equally sure, also,
that whatever action our reserved players take,
the Chicago club will have a team In the field
that will put up just as skillful and just as at
tractive a game of ball as any of its teams of
past seasons have done.'' .
HOWE'S PLAIN TALK.
He Expresses Hls.OpIuion About the Broth
Treasurer Howe, of the Cleveland club, is a
very frank and plain-speaking gentleman.
During an interview with a Cincinnati Com-merctal-Gazette
reporter on Saturday he said:
"The action of the League players has
thrown a wet blanket over baseball, and I
think (no matter what may be the outcome of
the trouble) will tend to injure the national
game. The men who have their money in
vested now heartily wish they were out of it,
as I for tne would sell what stock I have in the
Cleveland club at a great sacrifice. Before the
Brotherhood scheme developed the manage
ment of our club had made arrangements to
build up the team for next season, and we bad
our lines out for two or three good men. Ne
gotiations ceased as soon as the Brotherhood
plot came to light, for we did not care about
sinking anv more money in a business the
future of which is shrosded In so much uncer
tainty." "Then you really think the Brotherhood is
"It is evident that their plans are well laid,
and the players one and all are bound together
by a solemn oath to carry ont some prear
ranged plan. Jnst what they propose to do I
can't tell. In at least three cities of the League
they will be able to get strong financial back
ing, namely, New York, Boston Chicago, and
possibly Philadelphia. In Cleveland there can
not be found a man who wonld be willing to
take a nickel's worth of stockin the Brother
hood. Johnston, I understand, has agreed to
furnish the clnb in our city with a ball park,
but that is all the further he will go in the mat
ter, as be could never be induced to take any
stock in the Cleveland club. He will possibly
put up a fence for them and some cheap
stands. The plot of ground selected is on one
of his lines of street railroads. In Washington,
Indianapolis and Pittsburg the Brotherhood
would be unable to get any substantial back
ing. Five of the League clubs stand inde
Sendcnt They can better afford to fight the
rotherhood than concede too much to them.
Ward, Eeefe and Pfeffer are the disturbing
elements. John Montgomery is due to drop
out of the profession in about two more years
and appreciating this fact has planned the
Brotherhood scheme, which, If succcessful,
will insure him a position with a fat salary.
The same is about true of Keefe and Pfeffer."

Omaha, Neb., October 27. The All
America party has had a day without a
tiresome fear. The sky from sunrise to sun
set was without a fleck of cloud. At 11
o'clock the entire party mounted what
are here designated as Concord stages,
seating nine people on top. There were
six horses before each stage, and the
inactions of living were exhilarated
and gladdened by the ride in the sunshine.
The greatest smelting works in the world
were visited. The ore, with its gold and
silver ores, was watched in the process of
disclosing them, until at last a room was
reached where the silver and the gold lay
in bricks. Fifty-six bars of bright silver
bricks were piled, each worth 51,100. And
upon the top of the heap were three richly
yellow lumps of gold. Signor Calvo, of
Costa Eica. lifted one with some exertion,
although only S inches long, 2J inches
wide and 1 inches thick.
"Yon have in your hand $6,600 worth of
metal," remarked the superintendent who
stood near, and there was a curious expres
sion of interest upon the faces of the foreign
ers, as, one by one they weighed in their
hands the rich metal chunks. In one corner
of the assay, house was heaped five feet high,
a pile of granulated copper, before the gold
and silver had been separated. A scoop
shovel lay near. Using the shovel the guide
took np a few pounds which was examined.
"There's enough value in that heap to buy
the three best farms in Nebraska," remarked
the attendant, and again the visitors wore
expressions of wondering interest

was a lavish supply of California fruits and
wines brought on by Delegate Estee, and all
of which elicited the warmest commendation

Silver City, N. Mex., October 27.
The timber question bas .suddenly been
brought very forcibly before the people of
New Mexico. Special agents of the Gov
ernment are causing the arrest of lumber
men, lumber and logs are being seixed and
mills are being closed down. Min
ing companies bave been cautioned
not to use wood which has
been cut from Government lands, and a fuel
famine in interior points not reached by the
railroads is threatened. For years the spe
cial agents of the Government have har
assed the lumber men here, but never before
have such summary steps been taken to
paralyze the chief industries of the Terri
tory. Individuals have been sued for cut
ting timber on lahds belonging to the Gov
ernment and the lives of mill men bave
been made miserable by Government agents,
who appear to be determined that the resi
dents of New Mexico shall reap no benefit
from the timber which grows in the almost
inaccessible mountain ranges of the Terri
tory. Consumers are driven to purchase lum
ber in Texas or California for consumption,
in sight of the mountain forests of New
Mexico. If the present orders from "Wash
ington are not modified every industry of
New Mexico will be seriously crippled and
many pioneers, who have undergone untold
hardships in their endeavor to open up a
new country and provide homes for their
families, will be compelled to leave.

As showing what the heir to the richest
single fortune in America can write, when
he puts his pen to the page oi romance, an

forthcoming novel proves interesting.
COBBE8FONSSXCE Or TBI DISPATCH.!
New York, October 27. Mr. William
Waldorf Astor, heir actual or presumptive
to more millions than are at present pos
sessed by any American, is a literary man
of modest methods but decided ability.
During bis residence in Italy as American
Minister, he made a study of Italian life in
books of the past and people of the present.
Your correspondent is enabled to give an
unpublished poem by Mr. Aster, in which
he renders into English an old Milanese
Reclining low on a mossy bed, through the sum-
-mer'a dreamy ropose,
Blushing at noonday a deeper red, lay the luster
of earth a Rose:
As fair as a hope of to-morrow, as sweet as a
dream of to-day,
She knew not the autumn ot sorrow, nor the
freezing touch ot decay.
A Sunbeam parting the leaves above stole softly
through creeper and vine.
And whispering words of burning love cried,
"Rose, darling Bose, tbou art mine!"
But ending their fondest embraces, and quench
ing the thrill of delight,
Fell a veil that dispels and effaces with the
shadowy languors of night
As man reverts to thelbrilliant past, when the
day we call ''Life" is done,
So, as the Sunbeam faded at last,' the Bose
turned to the setting sun;
And the evening breeze idling near her caught
a murmur it echoes yet
That was partly a sob of rapture, and partly a
sigh of regret
Mr. Astor has written a novel, entitled
"Sforza," and it is in the hands of his pub
lishers. In it the quoted verses will appear.
The work is a semi-historical romance of
Italy in the fifteenth century, dealing witb
Hhe petty wars between the Italian king
doms of that period. One of the episodal
adventures is that of Hermes Sforza, a
nephew of the Grand Dnke of Milan, who
was sent on a perilous mission into Venice.
Sforza had for a companion Narvaez, a pro
fessional swordsman, and by birth a Span
iard. They went to deliver secretly a docu
ment to Barbarigo, the Doge of Venice.
They made their way disguised into Venice,
but were there separated and arrested. The
narrative runs in Mr. Astor's words as fol
lows: At the close of the fifteenth century the Re
public of Venice had attained its greatest de
velopment of genius and strength.
The administration of this redoubtable State
was absorbed by a Senate representing the
families inscribed upon the Libro d'Orno; since
the failure of Faliero's nlot to recover by blood
shed the prerogatives withdrawn piecemeal from
the Doge, tbe power of the nominal chief of the
State had been further reduced, till now little
remained but the exercises of high ceremonies,
and the chair of honor in the great Council.
But the Senate, in its turn, had suffered- an
equal encroachment from the Executive Coun
cil ot Ten, and from the famous Council of
Three, which beld absolute power over life and
property. It was before tbe second of these
that Hermes was now to appear.
The f encinc-master was led from the private
landing through the central court, with its
flights of sculptured stairs, and tbe domes and
pinnacles of St Mark's, and a profusion of
palm trees and odorous shrubs, in imitation of
tbe shaded and fragrant ceurts of Stamboul,
and thence to a secluded room, where sat Bar
barigo and his brother. At sight of them tbe
Spaniard rejoiced to know that they shared his
predicament, and wonld be glad as himself to
shorten it. Motioning him to approach, and
bidding his escort retire, Barbarigo addressed
him in the suppressed tone to which a deaf man
moderates his voice.
"Your companion," he began, "will presently
be brought before me. A charge of conspiracy
has been preferred against him. Tell me, had
he other documents beside the two you
"Yes," answered Narvaez, hoping that the
worse the case appeared, the sooner it would be
the Doge's desire to end it; "only yesterday
morning I saw him draw a roll ot papers from
"Have you knowledge of their import?" mut
tered Barbarigo, glancing nervously at bis
"There was a safe-conduct to pass tbe Vene
tian lines, some bills of exchange, and a map
with notes of the way."
"By whom was the safe-conduct signed?"
"It looked regular enough, but tbe signature
"And the bills of exchanger"
"To say truth, they were imaginary also, being
merely part of our equipment, so to speak, and
Intended, if we fell In with tbe Venetian troops,
to bear us out in our character of clerks, com
missioned with some banker's business."
'And when this nephew of Sforza is exam
ined, what story will be tell?"
"That we are entrusted with the sale of the
exchanges be bears."
"Entrusted with the sale of forged bills, and
treveling under a false safe-conduct! Those
damning papers found upon him, and so lame a
story on his tongue, will be put to the ques
tion." "Young man," quoth the Doge, with voice
subdued by emotion, and with every perception
intent "you stand before me in grievous peril.
I am heartily sorry for It, since imprudence is
less to be blamed upon you than npon my
brother of Milan. I wobld gladly set you free,
but it Is too late you will presently be required
from me by an authority superior to mine.
Profit by this moment then, to tell me the
words you bear from Sforza."
'Your Highness well knows," began Hermes
with earnestness, "tbe straits in which we ot
Milan stand through the double invasion we
havo to confront To so painful a pass are we
brought, that death were no worse than the
shame which must presently overwhelm us.
Our army can face the French, for, however
outnumbered, we have stout hearts and strong
walls, and time saves many a beleaguered armv.
But therein lies the limit of our resistance, if
the soldiers of Venice unite with those of
France, we shall utterly perish. Therefore, in
the name of Sforza. I beseech you refrain from
doirnr us so erievons a hurt. Suffer a acnerous
compassion at the calamities that beset, jidb J
wnom a year ago you caiiea inena, to move
vou, and give us that respite which brave man
accords to tbe antagonist be sees overborne;
bait your troops, delay their march for two
months, set them to plundering oar cities if yna
will; but as you honor the reputation of Italian
arms, grant that when we face tbo French It be
not as men who fight without hope."
These were straightforward words, and they
pierced to the sensibilities of both the brothers.
"Woe is me," answered the Doge, witblyerlt
able concern, "that I cannot do what you ask
and what my desire wonld accord. But you
know not Venice; the trouble of ber neighbors
has always been ber opportunity and is so
now. Tbe army bas crossed your frontier: tbe
proweditori watch tbe generals with jealous
vigilance; what then, can I, old, infirm, nnable
to leave this city, do to prevent their advance?"
"My uncle said, that which the righteous
man steadfastly wills, the devil shall not pre
vent;' moreovcr.he wrote a certain letter Nar
vaez, I gave it yon "
"Ay, truly," interposed the Doge; "it was
faithfully delivered me last night. ' Then, af
ter laboring with a spasm that took him as
often as that cipher letter was mentioned, be
went on to say: "You may tell tbe Duke of
Milan that as I am a Christian, I will seek to
halt tbe troops, even to tbe limit of risking my
life in the attempt No matter, all shall yet be
well, provided you leave everything implicitly
to my judgment" ""
Hermes was about to assent to this reassur
ing declaration, wben an imperative summons
wa heard. Barbarieo's eyes fell at the sound,
and bis fingers trembled as they toyed with a
long quill pen. men, wiiu aurupt resuiuuon,

And now tne voce, oeing leit aione wm as r

intention, leaving ajar -the door, so that an
officer and six halberdiers could be seen stand

The messenger yielded witn in grace, mutter

When the Doge turned from his colloquy, he
perceived by the change in the bright young
face, that the sacrifice about to be required
bad been guessed. Baroarigo rose from his
seat caughtNarvaez by tbe band, and whis
pered: "ITou must go; you musttake the place
of Hermes Sforza. It seems to you a fearful
thing, but so it must be. Bear a bold heart;
fear not bnt I will work to save von, as though
you were my own flesh and blood."
"Why must I take Hermes' place?" asked
Narvaez, whose lips quivered as bespoke.
"Because there is a terrible risk about that
which otherwise awaits him perhaps the
question, possibly worse see, I conceal noth
ing from you."
"But again I ask, why putme in bis place?"
"Because the devil's letter yon thrust in my
hand last night binds me to the Duke of Milan
by an obligation I shudder to recall. It were
an ill beginning, since lam to serve bim, to let
his nephew be done to death. You alone cart
take the risk; you can pass for Sforza, for you
will appear only before the Council and their
attendants1, not one of whom has seen him.
Make tbe best defense yon can, and trust to
me for your escape to-night"
"Shall be out of Venice before the sun
touches the horizon,"
Tbe young swordsman listened with a flush
of color that died suddenlyaway; then, with
an accent of determination beyond his years,
he resolutely answered: "Be it as you will, and
if I perish let it be said to Hermes that I met
this danger willingly to save him."
Meanwbile Hermes eagerly availed himself
of his opportunity to question tbe Doge's
brother upon tbe events of tbe previous night
and tbat personage was soon volubly discours
ing and gesticulating. Tbe minntes passed:
the hall door of tbe Dose's room was repeatedly
opened and closed; at length all was quiet.
Their desultory talk drew to an end; tbe secre
tary, still leaning against tbe door of commu
nication became silent
"Narvaez is again alone with the Doge," ob
served Hermes, after a listening pause; "let us
to him, our task Is accomplished; we would
haste from Venice."
Tbe Venetian yielded to this importunity; he
unbolted the door, and allowed Hermes to re
enter tbe study, where, to his astonishment, he

with an angry face, he stammered: "The yonth

hesitatingly answered. "The youth is gone.

the only recourse to spare you an examina

my suggestion he consented to take your

the ground with an oatb, his face became pur

he made as tbough be would have taken that
wortby by tbe throat
"Would to Heaven you had asked me!" he
ejaculated. "How quickly 1. should have re
fused It! But at least," he continued, smiting
his bands passionately together, "give me some
promise of his safety. Tell me what this ex
amination is to be, and when he will be re
leased!" Barbarigo wiped his face with a silk hand
kerchief; tbe midsummer sun was gaining
power, and his emotions rendered him an un
comfortable prince. He replied: "Your com
panion stands in no greater risk than I do in
this solemn bour. It was my first duty to the
Duke of Milan to rescue his nephew; it re
mained unavoidable that someone must take
his place before the council."
"But, In the fiend's name, why not blnrt the
truth and tell-bow trivial was our errand?"
"Trivial 1 Your purpose was a crime which
Venice punishes with death."

"If his life be forfeit through fault of yours,"
answered Hermes, "I will make public every

"Peace, poor fool," answered Barbarigo,

It was an ordinary circumstance for the mem
bers of the Conncil of Three to be snmmoned
from rest, or pleasure, or private affairs, to sit
either as the!Supreme Executive of the 8tate,or
as a court having the functions of judge, jury
and prosecutor. The news of a conspiracy had
been conveyed to each during the night, and,
upon first assembling, thev had passed an hour
in hearing read the record of the prisoner's ex
amination upon Ins arrest, and in listening to
tbe testimony of the boatmen. Tbey had now
finished with the report of the signori di notte:
and the boatmen, having told their story, bad
been discharged; Jt was not the practice of the
time, nor of that court, to put the prisoner in
presence of his accusers, or of witnesses.
If Narvaez had not at first comprehended
the imminence and extremity of the daczer he
accepted, be realized it now in standing before
a tribunal distinguished lor never leaning to
the side of mercy. He knew that to confess
-was to incnr immediate sentence of death,
with no hope beyond Barbarigo's frail promise
of rescue. To deny was to be ordered instantly
upon the rack. He looked atthe judges before
him in their scarlet robes, and readan unflinch
ing purpose upon the face of eacb; then he
glanced; at tbe Secretary, trimming his pens,
and at tbe slave still fingering bis metal gag;
then bis eye rested upon the rack, and at sight
of that appalling Instrument the anguish of
despair came over him in a. thought of con
vulsed lips, and starting eyes, and lacerated
flesh, and sobs and shrieks.
'Young man," began tbe elder and appar
ently the chief of the three, after a pause of
silent scrutiny, "you come before us charged
with the greatest offense known to the law of
Venice. We are here to determine your pun
ishment Do you acknowedge yourself to he
tbe person charted witb this plot?"
"Yes, I am Hermes Sforza, nephew to the
Duko of Milan."
"And do you confess yourself guilty of the
purpose to murder a harmless and defenseless
old man f" .
"What avails it to attempt a denial ?" re
plied the prisoner.
"A denial J" echoed the Venetian. "Nay, at
tpimit it not. Beware how vou tax our for.
bearance with denials. Only tbe full truth can
mitigate. In some slight degree, tbe measure of
your deserts. You admit, then, your guilt ?"
It was only tbe cboice between the immediate
mutilation of the rack and tbe supreme pen
alty, and Narvaez realized tnat he signed bis
own death warrant in answering "I do."
The three Venetians engaged m a hrief col
loquy, at the end of which the senior of them,
for tbo last time addressin&Nervaez, said:
"Hermes Sforza, you are convicted by the
evidence and by your admission ot a crime
whose punishment in every'lanil is death. Had
you been a Venetian,-we should have spared
the state the shame of knowing the baseness
of one of ber sons, and have caused your in
stant execution before us. But as warning
to loreign adventurers, oursentenco is tbat you
be returned to tbe cell whence yon were
brought, and tbat to-morrow, at the rising of
the sun, yon bo taken, gagged as a malefactor,
to tbe red pillars, and there strangled."
Upon leaving the Doge's presence, Hermes
was conducted to the Uppermost floor, where,
on tapping ata small entrance, there appeared
a clerical looking individual, who was evident
ly prepared for their coming. Tbe Secretary
paused but to address him in a hasty whis
per; and by the time Hermes bad glanced
about the door was closed and tbe Doge's
brother was gone.
In tbe evening the door opened, and. In the
obscurity, the Doge's brother entered. His
first words brought Infinite relief. Narvaez
had escaped the question, and was to be sub
stituted for another prisoner whose trivial
fault the Doge could condone.
"But if Barbarigo can substitute and pardon
whom he will, why not release Narvaez at
"Becaue your offense is beyond 'pardon; the
other prisoner, who is a youth of his own age,
is held upon a petty accusation ome private
vendetta which can be dismissed."
"How is it possible thathe can put one pris
oner in another's place?"
At this Innocent question tbe Secretary
laughed sardonically. "Have you never beard
of sucb things In Milan?" was bis only reply.
. "But you say Narvaez is condemned to
death?" . ;
"It is true." .' i
"Then this other youth will suffer -In his
piaee.; --. x- mp. t-EvTS
"Cosa vuolet what would you? Tbat is the
way ofthe world." ,
"Will be released in the early morning, wben
tbe prison watcb is changed, and conveyed in a
gondola to tbe steps behind St Mark's, within
which, for greater safety, you and this gentle
man will pass to-night; thence you will be taken
to Fuslna, where snitable papers will pass you
through tbe guards."
Some time after this comforting visit the
bells of the clock-tower rang out tbe hour, and
the Venetian rising, beckoned Hermes to
"Where Barbarigo's instructions summon to
pass tbe night in St Mark's."
"And why not pass it here?"
"Because we could not leave in tbe morning
without attracting notice, even if we got out
"How, then, are we to leave St Mark's?"
"After It is closed, at midnight, the keys are
hung in the sacristy. Fear not bnt we shall
find it a- trusty hiding place." ,
They reached the menials', stair, felt their
way down its winding and unlighted length,
and, after a descent that in tbe obscurity
seemed interminable, emerged beneatb the
arches and looked out over the piazza npon the
crowd that sat and strolled and talked along Its
brilliant extent Tbe distance to the vestibule
of tbe church was only 0 paces, but neither
dared risk tbe. scrutiny of tbe eyes that might
be watching. Tbey therefore turned into an
alley, and, crossing a bridge, walked guardedly
along a dim passage, lighted at the cornels by
candles flickering before saintly images, where
of not a few bad already burned to tbe end,
leaving saints and streets alike In tbe darkness.
Tbe night passed; tbe barking and bowling of
dogs on the piazza ceased, and a somber dav
dawned as Hermes raised himself, bruised and
stiff, from fitful snatches of sleep to an awaken
ing worse than tbe distorted visions of the
night Tbe day passed in dim, cold streaks
through lofty windows, and tbe first sound that
reached bim was tbe pattering of raindrops.
The mechanical figures on the clock-tower
hammered out tbe hour of five, and, in obedi
ence to a gesture from his companion, he
walked noiselessly to the main, entrance, in the
door of which was its great bronze key. They
passed the vestibule and looked across the
piazza to the two historic pillars; between
whoso shafts had been, for centuries, the place
of public execution. Already half a dozen men
from the prison stood there in the rain adjust
ing a rope.
Despite the nervous fatigue following npon
hunger, sleeplessness and anxiety, Hermes was
alert and keenly watchful. He believed that his
own deliverance was at band, at that the ap
pointed hour, Narvaez wonld be released. But,
tor a moment, a great excitement absorbed
and detained bim, for it was evident tbat an
innocent life was to be sacrificed.
He did not long remain in suspense; a file ot
halberdiers emerged from tbe palace, and with
them came a black-veiled executioner, and in
their midst walked the youth who was to pay
tneiorieit or narvaez's escape, ana, on eacn
side a religious brother ot tbe order whose
office it was to accompany the condemned to
execution. His arms were pinioned, bis ankles
chained, and across his month was a scarf
covering, tbe gag wherewith tbe Council stifled
his utterance. The figure was slender, like tbe
fencer's; the step, the hair, the very dress were
A violent tremor fell upon Hermes as tbe
escort passed to where the men were waiting
with silken cords. He understood it all now
but too late, the Doge deceived bim it was
Narvaez who stood there, and in his helpless
ness his lips quivered, bis eyes filled with tears,
his brain reeled, he dropped upon his
knees, and commenced an inarticulate recital
of prayers. The veiled headman's work was
dexterously finished: to the last the monks
muttered their supplications for the dying,
while, in accordance witb bis sentence, the
culprit was strangled between the pillars
which bear the emblems of ancient Venice,
and, after a hrief spasm, his inanimate body
rested against the post to which it bad been
bound. And at tbe instant tbe Venetian
touched Hermes on the shoulder, and together
tbey hastened to tbe bridge behind St Mark's,
and there lay a swift barge witb four rowers,
and hidden under tbe awning sat some one,
and Hermes sprang in with an oath "eloquent
of great joy, and the Venetian followed, and
the boatmen pnshed off witbout a word and
plunged into the obscurity of the canal.
And it was indeed Narvaez who sat beneath
the cover, pale and weary, but unbanned.
And Hermes, not knowing at the instant in
what words to pnt his feelings, cast his arms
about the fencer's nesk and kissed him, after
the Italian fashion, upon each cheek.

Bitter Straggle to Prevent a Crossing of tbe
Line Tho Superintendent of One
Company Arrested In In
Ceooksion, MnrK., October 27. The
bitter crossing fight between the Duluth,
Crookston and Northern and Manitoba
Kail ways, after two days of skirmish
ing ota both sides, was brought to a
focus this morning. At 12 o'clock
last night about 200 taen drove"
out from this city to the disputed crossing,
where they joined the D., C. & N. forces,
and operations toward perfecting the cross
ing were commenced. Although the ut
most secrecy had prevailed the Manitoba
people had evidently got wind that an at
tack would be made, and were fully pre
pared. Four heavy trains of cars, well equipped
with men, effectively blocked the track for
half "a mile above and below the proposed
crossing. There was only one weak point
in their arrangements to prevent the
crossing. About 50 feet east of the
proposed crossing was a town road which
crossed the Manitoba track. They were,
compelled by law to ieep this road open.
T,he Duluth, Crookston and Northern peo
ple, however, had obtained permission from
the town authorities to use it temporarily
as a crossing. When, therefore,
they found, that even with their large force,
they were unabied to get over at the original
point, they put men and teams to work and
by daylight had the new line laid within a
few feet of the Manitoba tracks. Then the
The Manitoba men had not previously In
terfered, but were then ordered by Superin
tendent James and were about to do so. He
was immediately arrested, and, notwith
standing a vigorous resistance was carried
off to jail An attempt to rescue him
failed, the Dnlntb, Crookston and Northern
forces being greatest. In obedience to or
ders from Superintendent James, Manitoba
engineers wrecked flat cars and engine on
the track and prevented their removal,
whereupon they also were arrested. After
a long argument of the case the JDnlutb,
Crookston and Northern officials decided to
await the decision on the injunction case to
morrow. CLOSE TO SAN FRANCISCO.

ScaAHTOif, October 27. Last Monday
Hiram Cobb, of ,Coolbaugh township, set a
steel bear-trapin a -thicket of scrub oaks
near Birch Bun, three miles west of Stauf

Cobb, the trapper's 17-yeawld son, told his
father he guessed he would take a stroll over
to Birch Bun andsee, whether a bear got
caught in the trap during the night, and
Mr. Cobb told. Gibson tbat if he intended to

The lad said He did not like to lug a gun
so far, and offhe started without it. telling
his father that he would stop at Charley
Holmes' on the tray -and borrow a gun.
Young Cobb changed his mind before he
had gone far, and 'instead of going past
Holmes' place he took a short cut up Nettle
Hill, and across 'the plateau to the spot
where the trap bad been set.

There was no-bear in tbe trap, and the
boy, after noticing; tha't the beef head, with
which the trap hadbeen baited, was just as
his father had placed it, started for home.
On tbe hillside' overlooking Birch Bun he
sat down on's'TOck to-rest and while he sat
there he saw a bear waddle ont of the
bushes, only- a jew yards from where the
trap was set. '

took a drink, and Young Cobb said he was

upon his haunches fortwo or three minutes,

beef head and made forthe thicket where
the trap-was concealed. The bear's move

own statement,' he felt so sure that the bear
would get caught" right away that he ran
down to the creek,' hid behind a log and lis

He hunted around for a big stone to throw
at the beat's head, but before he ran across

of the thicket with the trap fast to its left
Just then the drag in the trap caught in a
root and jerked the bear back, and the fear

the bear on the head. This made the brute
furious, and it made, a lunge for young
