Association. Magnates in a
I ' Deadlock.
Marinates Resolve to Grant Sutcliffe's
W? f!liim of S2n0.
teler Jackson Hakes a Spicj Eeply to
John L Sullivan.
The baseball magnates are making matters
quite interesting at if ew York. There is a
deadlock in the American Association. The
' ILeajrue resolved to grant Sutcliffe's claim of
f "$250, it being the only case submitted by the
f Brotherhood. Peter Jackson replies to Sul-
kli van's challenge and so does Dominick Mc
. Caffrey.
i Xew Yoke, November 13. The third
f .day of the great week of baseball meetings
i resulted in very little being done. Both
jj"the National Iieacne and American Asso
$ciation seem to be taking things easy, and
k are spending most of the time in watching
Keach other. The League directors had a
E.rmeeting this morning, and then the regular
- meeting of the League began. In the mean
Ntime the regnlar meeting of the Association
was being held. Everything was lovely
j-'tintil it came to the election of President,
'"and dben the fun began. Phelps, of Louis-
Hille, and Krauthoff, of Kansas City, were
the candidates, and each man bad lour clubs
'to back him up. The consequence was that a
i'deadlock'took place, and it seemed for a time
ito be war to the knife. There were several
Brotherhood players about the hotel, and It
t was reported that some 10 to 30 of them had
DEigned League contracts.
$; It was 11 o'clock when the meeting of the
Association was called to order in Parlor A
fe!The delegates present were: President
i-WTieeler Wikoff: Athletics, H. a Penny
tjpacker, W. H. Whittaker and William 6har
&Blsr, Brooklyn, J. J. Doyle, F. A. Abell, Charles
i"A. Byrne; Cincinnati, Aaron S. Stern. Harry
Stern: Columbus, Conrad Born, R. Lazarus;
Baltimore. J. IV. Wall. W. Barnie; Kansas
. City, L. C Krauthoff, J. W. Spear, F. K. llar--:tln;
Louisville, L. C Parsons; St. Louis, Chris
f Von derA.be, J.J. 0NeiL, Judge Scott The
. report of the joint Bules Committee and the
"Board of Directors were adopted. Then came
- the election of officers. There were two candi
1 dates named L. C. Krauthoff, of Kansas City,
, and Zach Phelps, of Louisville. The battle
.'between 'The Combine" composed of St. Louis,
' Columbus, Louisville and the Athletics, and the
, balance of the clubs now began in earnest,
, and when the first ballot was recorded each
- candidate had received four votes. The dele
Kates, after balloting 3 times, took an adjourn-
ment at 620 o'clock until 10 o'clock in the
. morning.
Both "the combine" and its opponents show
'.a determination to stick, and no one can pos-
sibly predict tbe outcome with any decree of
certainty. A compromise candidate Is talked
of, but each side claims that it must be either
f Krauthoff or Phelps.
The annual meeting of the National League
was called tu order by President Young in
'parlor F at 1 o'clock to-dar. Reports ol the
, Board of Directors' Committee on Playing
Bules and the Board of Arbitration were sub-,
znitted and accepted. Then the constitution
was taken up, but before any material changes
jrerc made a recess was taken until S o'clock.
After tbe recets the deliberation upon tbe con-
' stitution was dropped, and tbo report of the
League committee appointed to confer with
the Brotherhood committee was taken up. The
report was accepted, their action indorsed and
the committee discharged. Mr. bpalding
stated "that although tbe Brotherhood com
mittee bad refused further conference with
the League, and, therefore, bave not substan
tiated by proofs the charges against Cleveland
in the Sntcliffe case, yet he moved that the
League itself would investigate said charges
t ortnn lth. After a statement of facts, the fol
lowing resolution was adopted:
Whereas, it bas been brought to the notice
of this League that E. E. Sutcliff e, a player of
the Cleveland club, claims that he is entitled to
payment by that club to him of tbe sum of $250
as being the amount paid him for the season of
18S9. less than he received in the Detroit club
tor the season of 18SS, and
Whereas, such claim is made pursuant with
the understanding had with the Brotherhood
of players whereby a player consented to serve
his club for the season next ensuing the ex
piration of his contract provided he should
suffer no reduction in salary, and
Whereas, snch was tbe spirit of the under
standing ol the Brotherhood Committee, and it
was so expressed in the form of contract there
agreed upon: therefore
Kesolved. That although as a matter of fact
Sutcllffe did not sign a contract containing a
perpetuating salary clause for the season of
'tis, be having signed a contract with the De
troit club under date of October 24, 'ST. prior
to the agreement of the Brotherhood com
mittee; and although there is some doubt as to
whether Sutcllffe did or did not voluntarily
consent to play for the Cleveland club for a less
amount than was named in his contract with
tbe Detroit club the year preceding.
Yet as it was tbe plain intention of both par
ties at the time the Brotherhood contract was
agreed upon that the players, hen thereafter
reserved for an ensuing season, should receive
not less than tbe same salary specified in the
contract for the current season, and as this is
tbe only case that has been brought to tbe no
tice of tbe League involving a claim of the
Character indicated, it is hereby ordered that
.the Secretary of tbe League pav to the said E.
. Sutcllffe the sum of 1250, ue'ing the differ
ence between tbe amount paid bim for his ser
vices by tbe Detroit club lor the season of '83
and tbe amount thus far paid him by the
Cleveland club for the season ol '89. After tbe
passage of this resolution the meeting ad
journed. Tbe Board of Directors of the League met at
t rfrfock in parlor F, and was in session just
ur. Kick Young was again compliment
.h an unanimous re-election. Secretary
r presented petitions from Umpires Lynch
irry, asking that fines amounting to $iS
mposed by injuries, be retunded. The
allowed it. Umpire JdcQuaid, however,
cotfare so well. He presented a petition
iing that something like $200 be remitted on
xcount of absence tbrough illness but while in
the line of duty. This was disallowed, because
tbe board thought it would be establishing a
bad precedent.
During the meeting the report of the com
mittee appointed to meet the Brotherhood was
listened to with great interest. It contained
copies of the official correspondence between
Spalding and John M. Ward, President of the
Brotherhood. Ward's first letter, dated May
31, 1SS9. stated tbe grievances of the players,
and asked that a committee be appointed to
.discuss them. In a letter to his lellow mem
bers. Mr. Spalding says tbe Brotherhood claim
'that classification rule violates the understand
ing had with tbe Brotherhood in 1SS7. The
only specific charge they make is in tbe case of
"Butcliffe, of the Cleveland club, who, they
claim, received his salary of $2,000 from tbe
.Detroit club in 1SS8. and bad signed with the
Cleveland club for 1889 at tbe classification
figure of $1,750. With this exception of Sut
cllffe, Mr. Ward does not claim that the League
"bas violated tbe letter of the Brotherhood con
tract, but the spirit thereof, claiming that
while it was not specially written in tbe con
tract, it was understood that the total amount
of salary paid a player, whether written in the
contract or not. was to be tbe basis of reserva
tion. Mr. Spalding denied that there was any
such understanding, bnt tbat clause 20 of tbe
League contract should be the basis of reserva
tion for the ensuing year.
Mr. Reach's View.
- Robert Beach, of the firm of Beach & Co,
Philadelphia, was in the city yesterday on busi
ness. He is well informed on baseball affairs,
and be states tbat a Brotherhood team will not
be a success in Philadelphia, He feels sure
that ail tbe good players of tbe old League
iuii will remain with it next year.
V '-
He Sayi There la Plenty of Ontalde Money
to Help Fliubnrjr.
Cleveland, O., November 13. Mr. Albort
L, Johnson, the promoter of the players
League, has returned from New York tilled
with enthusiasm. He says the new League
will be a go. In an interview he said to-day:
"In all the cities we have the best of financial
backing and the hearty co-operation or the play
ers. If Pittsburg capitalist did not care to take
stock in their club, there was plenty or money in
tbe East tbat was available. I place no confidence
in these stories of desertion, telegraphed to In
dianapolis at once after tbe story that Denny bad
rcrnsed to sign with the new League. We expect
to keep all the weak-kneed chaps In line. I have
a telegram In my pocket now from Glasscock. He
is all right. Hutchinson, Burns and Anson are
the only players in tbe League that are not in the
new deal.
"What do von think of the arrangement made
to carry on the business of the League?"
'Well, It leaves a chance for me to lose money.
The withdrawal or the co-operative feature does
not Insure the clubs In the smaller cities from
financial loss. I take the risk. If 1 lose moner.
or course there will be no share from Cleveland
for the players' pool, and that will, of necessity,
accumulate from the earnings of other clubs.
The Cleveland players would have a share of such
earnings, if any were made. Many of the players
have invested money in the enterprise,"
Ed Hanlon Thinks He Will Finish His Work
Bd Hanlon has not secured sufficient pur
chasers for tbe local Brotherhood club yet, but
to use bis own words, he is "on easy street."
Last evening he stated that during the day be
had met with cheering success. He expects to
have tbe entire stock disposed of to-dav, and if
be sneceeds in that, a meeting of the stock
holders will be called at once. One or two gen
tlemen took some stock yesterdav, but Mr.
Hanlon withholds their names for tbe present.
Mr. Hanlon states that everybody he asks to
bny stock seems to be afraid that some ot tbe
players might refuse to play with the Brother
hood. This fear prevents many from buying
stock. It is argued that if the players break
their promises and pledges in one instance,
tbey are liable to do it again. Mr. Hanlon,
however, is certain that everything will go
alsng all right.
Too BIcKeesporters Resolve to Have a
Salaried Team.
McKeespokt, Pa November 13. The Mc
Keesport Baseball Clnb held its annual meet
ing to-night and finished up its business of the
past year and decided to increase its stock to
$5,000, and also to put a good salaried club in
the field next year, providing admission to a
suitable league can be secured.
Any good sober Dlayers who want to play for
a moderate salary wonld do well to write to the
Secretary, Frank Torreyson. Any good man
ager, who is also a player, would do well to
Poor Horses to be Prohibited From Run
nine Races.
Chicago, November 13. There is a large
gathering oi horsemen from all parts of tbe
West in this city to-day in attendance on the
annual meeting of tbe American Turf Con
gress. An executive session was held, lasting
until after 1 o'clock this afternoon. Its pro
ceedings were not made public
'Before this congress adjourns," said Secre
tary Brewester. "it will be safe to say that
action will have been taken upon the growing
evil of allowing such awful numbers of poor
horses to enter the lists. What is wanted is a
nice track free from cheap selling horses,
many of which are unfit to bo classed as race
horses, and to do away with the poolrooms at
the race tracks."
Tbe most important change considered was
the alteration of clause A of rule 47. Tbe
clause read: "There shall be no race given for
horses 3 years old and upwards less than six
furlongs." The amendment rule is as follows:
"There shall be no dash race given for horses 3
years old and upwards less than one mile."
This was the only change that brought about a
division. The amendment was carried by a
vote of 6 to 2, the members voting against be
ing Judge Perkins, of Latonia and L EzekieL
of Birmingham. Section H, in the preamble
and by-laws, reading "tbe subscribing jockey
clnbs agree that no contract for betting privi
leges be made with any association of book
makers," was stricken out. The rule in regard
to foul ridirg and fraud was made to read "Any
one rnled off for a fraud shall stand ruled off
foy life." Rule 16 was changed to tbe follow
ing: "When two or more horses start in a race
in the same interest, or ownea wholly or in part
by tbe same persons, tbey shall be coupled and
sold as one horse in all pools, Paris mutuals and
book betting." A number of minor changes
were made. A few of the proposed changes
were referred to a committee with instructions
to report to-morrow morning.
The change indole 47 is regarded as signifi
cant, and made for the purpose of elevating
the standard. It was believed tbat too many
half and three-quarter-mile sprinters had been
produced by the old limit, and that nothing
less than one-mile races for 3-year-olds would
result in a better grade of horses.
Considerable discussion arose over a sugges
tion that a board of stewards similar to the
English Board ot Stewards be appointed for
tbe control and issuing of licenses to jockeys;
the body to be composed of representatives
from different associations, for tbe complete
control of jockeys, and from which board all
j ockeys must first obtain a license. The matter
was referred to a committee.

Some Excellent Contests In the Big Local
Despite the unfavorable weather yesterday
the shooting tournament promoted by Messes.
Richardson, Shaner, Crow and Davison was a
great success. The shooting took place in a
field adjoining the ground of the Squirrel Hill
Gun Club. The contestants were numerous
and the shooting excellent. Two huge tents
were erected, so that the spectators were shel
tered from the rain.
The were seven matches, the principal being
that at ten live birds, entrance fee 10 each.
There were 16 entries for this event, and tbe
winner turned up in Jim Crow, whoe share of
the stakes was J48. All the contests were close
and exciting, and some of tbe "shoot offs"
were only decided after 15 or 16 straight had
been killed. The shooting will be resumed
this morning. Everything is In readiness for a
start. The traps are all down, tbe tents up and
all tbe birds on the ground in charge ot two
men. There are 9,000 clay birds and about 1,000
live pigeons in readiness for to-day. There are
many of tbe leading shooters in the country
taking part in tbe contest. Following are the

Hntnrdny'i Foot Race.
Interest in the Priddr-McCIelland foot race,'
which takes placo on Saturday next at Exposi
tion Park, is increasing rapidly. Yesterday
McClelland and bis trainer were in the city,
but there was no opportunity for McClelland
to let his backers see him run. He Is looking
well, and Is confident' of victory. Priddy is in
excellent condition, and he is also extremely
confident of winning the race. He is running
well, and doubtless tbe race will be a good one.
The contestants must run, "rain or shine."

van's challenge to fight him for $20,000 seri
ously. Neither does Parson Davies, Jackson's
manager, who controls the black man abso
lutely. "When Sullivan pnts np tbe money," said
Davies, "we will consider the proposal, but we
will not change onr plans here on Sullivan's
account, or on that of anyone else. We have
already made engagements for two months
ahead, and aro concluding contracts for an ex
hibition in Paris. Sullivan has always kept
everybody waiting heretofore, and now he can
wait himself if he wants a go with Jackson. It
is much more likely that we shall make a
match with Kilraln before we do with Sulli
van, as Kilrain has sought the opportunity
first. I can scarcely believe that Sullivan
really wants to challenge Jackson, as the big
fellow has always said be would never fight a
nigger. He has drawn tbe color line so closely
before that I hardly believe he has chopped it
off now."
"And do you think if Sullivan were brought
up to the condition in which he met Kilraln
last July, Jackson could best himT" I asked.
"I think Jacks jn is the best man who ever
stood in the ring In ray time," said Davies.
'Look at the Smith fight. Smith's best chance
bas always been his ability to stand punish
ment, and yet Jackson knocked bim out in two
Jackson and Davies are receiving much at
tention from the sporting element of the
gentry and nobility. The pugilist begins a
series of exhibition matches with Jem Smith
at the Aquarium to-morrow night, and as it is
generally believed that Smith will take the op
portunity to obtain revenge for his defeat
Monday morning, all scats for the mill are

Revolvers Pointed at Steve Brodlo nt a
Livelx Battle.
New Yoke. November 13. A prize fl ght, with
variations, took place in "the Hook," a noto
rious East Side den, early this morning.
Charlie Judge, of Philadelphia, and Joe
Fowler, ex-champion feather-weight of En
gland, were the principals, and Steve Brodio
was the referee. There was no rope, so the ring
was formed by the spectators locking arms
around the contestants. From the first to the
sixth round Judge had it all his own way, to
the great delight of bis friends. In the sixth
round Fowler lauded a right-hander on the
lower jaw that maae Judge silly. Judge
claimed his jaw was broken, and, as he could
not close it, it looked likely until a doctor
snapped something into placo again. Then tbe
fighting went on. Fowler kept his good work
up, and Judge's friends saw that it was time to
take a hand themselves. Whenever Fowler
approached tbe ring they would punch him In
the back and ribs.
His seconds decided tbat he had not come
there to fight the crowd, and claimed the figbt
on a fouL Brodie was going to allow it, when
a gentleman in tbe crowd covered the bridge
jumper with a pistol. The situation was a try
ing one. Brodie knocked the gun out of the
excited owner's hand, and put it in bis own
pocket. He then refused to allow the fonl.
The crowd yelled, and the few friends of Fowler
shouted back. Their man was evidently going
to win, and they were jubilant. They made so
much noise that tbe referee thought it was
better to stop and let matters stand as tbey
were than to suffer from a raid. He gave it a
draw, and the purse was divided between the
two men.
The Cnlirornlnn Offers to Fight Kilraln or
Joo Lnnnon.
San Fbancisco, November 13. Jack Demp
sey, the "Nonpareil," will soon try to raise his
fallen colors. It will not be with La Blanche,
however. Young Mitchell and his friends have
been poking fight at Jack so long that at last
Dempsey has succumbed. Both fighters were
at the rooms of the California Athletic Club
last night Tbe directors offered a purse of
$3,000 for them.'to contest for March 29,J500it o go
to the loser. Dempsey wanted the match to
take place sooner, but Mitchell did not care
about fighting before March. Dempsey did not
feel anxious to meet Mitchell, who is an old
pupil of Jack's, but said that things had now
gone too far. Mitchell said he had no feeling
in the matter, but his friends insisted on him
issuing a challenge. So the two friends have
laid aside tbe friendship of a lifetime to fight
Tbe club directors gave.Doth men till Monday
to oecide when tbey would meet. Joe Mc
Auliffe,wbo was defeated 'by Peter Jackson,
has issued a challenge to Jake Kilrain or Joe
Lannon to fight for a purse of 2,500 and from
$1,000 to 10.000 a side. The Occidental Club
will offer the purse to-morrow night a chal
lenge having been telegraphed to Kilrain,
McAuliff e says he gave Jackson a hard fight,
and tbe latter toyed with Smith, who fought a
draw with Kilrain.
Dominick Means It
New Yoke, November 13. Dominick Mc
Caffrey, in a long letter to the Sun, declares
his willingness to meet Sullivan on falrand
reasonable terms for a substantial stake and
purse. McCaffrey reminds Sullivan tbat be did
not best him (McCaffrey) in their contest at
Cincinnati. Dominick inlsts that it is mere
bluff for Sullivan to decline to accept his, Mc
Caffrey's, challenge.

Formally Dedicated, With the Most
impressive Ceremonies.
Among the Distinguished Guests 'vTho Were
in Attendance.
As Plainly Set Forth in the Sermon Delirerea by
Bishop Gilmour.
The Catholio University at Washington
was dedicated yesterday. Bishop Gilmour
delivered the principal sermon. President
Harrison and Secretary Blaine made britf
speeches, which were well received. A
number of other gentlemen, lay and clerical,
responded to toasts.
WASHlifCJTOir, November 13. The great
event of the centennial year of Catholicism
in America occurred to-day, when the new
university, from which bo much is expected,
was dedicated. Unpleasant weather caused
a slight delay in the opening ceremonies and
materially affected the attendance. The
delegates who came over from Baltimore on
special trains preferred remaining down
town under shelter to venturing out in the
wet The opening ceremony was transferred
from the west front to the interior of the
buildinp, where, shortly after 10 o clock,
Cardinal Gibbons delivered a short address.
The dedicatory sermon was preached by
Bishop Gilmour, oi Cleveland, and is as
follows :
Knowledge and doctrine will be the objective
work of this institution. Civilization is limited
only by education, and it is a significant fact
that from the beginning religion and education
have been linked hand in hand. A higher mo
tive than to assist at tbe dedication of this
building to the mcro cultivation of the arts
and sciences, valuable though they are. has to
day brought the chief magistrate of this great
republic these high dignitaries of Church and
State, this distinguished audience of the laity.
The building bas just been blessed and forever
dedicated to the cultivation of tbe science of
sciences tbe knowledge of God.
It was well to have begun with the divinity
department If for nothing else than to teach
that-all true education must begin in God and
find its truth and direction in God. No more
can the State exist without religion than can
the body exist without the soul. The State.it
is true, is for the temporal, but bas its substan
tial strength in the moral, while religion is for
the spiritual, bnt in much must find its work
ing strength in the temporal. In this sense it
is a mistake to assume that religion is inde
pendent of the State, or the State independent
ot religion. As a matter of fact religion must
depend upon tbe State in temporals and vice
versa, tbe State must depend upon religion in
morals, and both should so act that their con
joint work will be the temporal and moral wel
fare of society.
In this country, wo have agreed that religion
and State shall exist separately, but this does
not mean their independence of each other.
No State can or should exist that does not rec
ognize God as the Supreme Authority. Ameri
can society has been strong because we are
and have been a religious people. Our colonies
were founded by men pre-eminently religious.
Our laws and constitutions are the outgrowth
of the Christian law. We are strong becanse
our faith in God Is strong, and we will live and
strengthen In proportion as we are guided by
His law.
Catholics have no contention with public
schools or State schools as such. They are
willing to accept them in America, as they
have done in Europe, on condition that the
child shall be taught religion and the laws of
morality. Our 650 colleges and academies,
3,100 parish schools, 27 seminaries for the train
ing of the clergy and 2 universities are a
glorious galaxy amid which to plant this
Catholic university. Her statesmen and
churchmen are to be prepared, and through
them the masses molded and society guided.
It was, therefore, wise to begin with the di
vinity building.
Let generosity mark the spirit of the house
of learning. Let it be filled with the best of
our youth, and let every effort be made to place
this university in the front ranks of modern in
stitutions of learning. But above all, let no
narrowness seek to make this the only Catholic
university of this country. We have broad
lands and eager hearts elsewhere, who in time
will need new centers. Let the great ambition
of this university be to lead in all that tends to
elevate our race, benefit our fellow citizens and
bless our country. Revelation is God's best
gift to man.tThe mission of this university is to
take up all that is good in human knowledge,
purify it in the alembic of God's revelation
and give it back to man blessed in the light of
God's truth, increasing in volume and intensi
fied In force, thus giving science its direction
and revelation its complement
Covers were laid for about 250 guests, and
the dining table and banquet ball were
handsomely decorated with flags and flow
ers. Cardinal Gibbons occupied the seat at
the head of the table, and on his right were
Cardinal Tascherean and Archbishops Sa
tolli and Fabrre. Cardinal Gibbons was
vis-a-vis Secretary Blaine, who was flanked
"by Archbishops Kyan, Williams and Du
Hamol on tbe left, and Secretaries Tracy,
Noble and Busk on the right Bishop
Keane acted as toastmaster. The first toast,
"His Holiness, Pope Leo XIII," was re
sponded to by the Most Bev. llonsignor
Satolli, the
who spoke in Latin. He said he was glad
to see so thoroughly a representative body,
for it means that all nations were working
with America tor Catholic evangelization.
He expressed the hope that the second cen
tury of the hierarchy in this country would
prove as productive ot good results as the
Secretary Blaine, in responding to the
toast, "Our Country and Her President,"
said: "I come to represent the United
States, not in any political sense, much less
in any partisan sense, nor in connection
with any church or sect, but to speak for
all and the great freedom which we enjoy.
I have made the statement in Protestant
assemblies and I am glad to make it in Cath
olic ones."
He referred to the administration as one
which had produced good results, and con
tinuing, said: "I am glad of every college
that is endowed, no matter who endows it
Every institution of learning increases cul
ture, which I believe will build up the
Government of this great country of ours,
under which all are iree and equal."
Mr. Blaine was cheered loudly dnring his
remarks, and the applause when he con
cluded lasted several minutes. Cardinal
Taschereau, of Canada, was responding to
the toast, "Our Sister Universities," when
the MarineBaud struck up, "flail to the
Chief," and President Harrison entered the
hall. The entire assemblage rose to their
feet and applauded until tbe President took
the seat reserved for him on the lett of
Cardinal Gibbons.
As soon as the President was seated
Bishop Keane proposed his health, which
was drunk standing. In response to urgent
calls for a speech the President said: "I
am thankful for the reception you have
given me. I have avoided speech-making
heretolore in occasions of this kind. It has
been my fortune often to have that covenant
broken by being compelled to make a
speech. I am sure yon will permit me to

tered the hall just as the President con
cluded, and were shown to seats near Car
dinal Gibbons.
"The hierarchy of the United States,"
was responded to by Cardinal Gibbons, who
thanked the President and other officers of
the Government for their presence. "In
this university," he said, "your children
will be educated to strengthen the country
by their number, enlighten it' by their wis
dom, and, if necessary, defend it with their
The speech making concluded with a
humorous address by Archbishop Byan,
and a response, by John Boyle Keilly, to
the toast, "The Press." The next ceremony
was tbe presentation of the bust of St
Thomas Aquinas, the. gift of the Catholics of
Great Britain and Ireland in Borne. Arch
bishop Satolli, in the name of the Gov
ernors, turned the bust over to the Board of
Directors of the university, and read an ad
dress prepared by those he represented, ex
pressing the deep interest felt by the Gov
ernors in the success of the university. The
privileges granted to the new university by
the Holy See, he said, are a fresh proof of
the paternal charity and wisdom of the sov
ereign pontiffs, who. in desiring tbe conver
sion of all men to the true faith, haVe en
deavored also to provide them with a solid
and enlightened education.
The day's celebration then closed with the
inaugural exercises, which took place in the
lecture room. Cardinal Gibbons opened the
meeting with prayer, the Kt Bev. M. J.
O'Farrell, Bishop of Trenton, delivered an
oration, and the very Bev. Mgr. Schroeder,
Professor of Dogmatic Theology in the Uni
versitv, read a Latin oration. The choir
sang, ""Oremus Pro Pontifice Nostro Leone,"

Consplcnona Elements in the North Dakota
Scautoriblp Contest.
BiSMAECir, November 12. The new
State of North Dakota will elect two Sena
tors next week, and there is a prospect of d
warm time. There are only 13 Democrats
in a total Legislative membership of 92.
The administration at Washington is prob
ably more interested in the issue in
North Dakota than in any other
of the new States. Harrison and his
private secretary are very friendly to ex
Governor Pierce, who came to Dakota in
1884 and served as Governor satisfactorily
and well. He is now a candidate for Sen
ator, backed by the administration, with a
fair chance of being nominated by acclama
tion in the Republican caucus. On tbe other
hand, another ex-Governor, Nehemiah G.
Ordway, well known in tbe lobby in Wash
ington, is a candidate for Senator, backed
by a barrel and the courage of a man who
does not know when he is beaten.
UOrdway's candidacy is unique. He came
to Dakota last spring, and initiated a can
vass for United States Senator. It was not
known that he claimed a residence in Da
kota, and his advent was a surprise; but he
has received more attention than all the
other candidates put together. The oppo
sition has painted him as the "bold bad
butcher from Washington." It is given
out that President Harrison is very hostile
to Ordway and that his election would bean
offense to the administration.

easier to be well than to be sick, for it is the natural,

theory: ;Jc
"For twentyight years said Mrs. Davy, "l-jy

a very sickwoman. I have been treated during that"
time by fifteen American doctors, each grvisjrsmy

hopeless outlook. As near as I could maVe out I had a
complication of rheumatism withewiale weak
ness. Sometimes my knees and legs were so
swollen and painful, or my abdomen so bloated that I
would be confined to my bed for weeks, covered with a
sour-smellingperspiratioii so profuse and continued as
to drench the bed clothing, and the stubborn irregu
larities of my ' changes,' with, the frightful attending
pains, made me Jong for death as a welcome relief. I
had been so salivated with pcnrerful'drugs that half of .
my teeth had dropped out, and one of my legs seemed
permanently twisted. I had been 1ustered,' 'cupped.'
'bled' and 'drugged 'all to no purpose. God knows
I gave those doctors every opportunity to effect a core, ''
and paid thenv hundreds of dollars while they experi
mented. But when Gun Wa, the famous ,
Chinese physician', came here I went to see '"
him, as it promised something new. My lecuitiy
dates from that day. He kindly and quietly looked
me over and furnished me a two-weeks' treatment of -
herbs (which 1 prepared myself, an internal remedy
and a wasn, ratner pleasant to caxe, ana oave(cond
tinned them with slight changes -ataceT -The result iijl
digestion better than I had ever known, bowels and
other functions greatly improved, and my general
health such as I had never dared hope for. Th
