United ' States infantry, and the Twenty-seventh battery are still ignorant of the date of their departure for New Orleans.

General McKee «bjected and Mustering Officer May- aided with Studebaker. He telegraphed the situation to Secretary of War Alger and so informed Governor Mount. The latter supported McKee. Governor Mount discussed the misunderstanding over affairs with Lieutenant Colonel May. The conference was by telephone, imd the governor suggested that the lieutenant colonel make denials of statements attributed to him in The Journal, which, it was declared, were misstate- Hients. Frtt Better After the Talk. The governor also 1 suggested that the lieutenant colonel explain his position relative to the installation of Colonel Studebaker as commanding officer of the camp. The order in which the regiments had been mustered in at the camp was the subject also of some inquiries. It is represented that better feeling prevailed after the conference than before, but the governor decided to withhold Lieutenant Colonel Mays commission until explanations were heard and it was rumored in camp that the lieutenant colonel might remain a captain in the regular army so far as the governor of Indiana is concerned. 1AED ON HIS OI.T> TARTNKR.

[From Our Special Correspondent.] LAKH BF.NNF.TT, Alaska, March 29. Since we started inland we have had several meals that might aptly be termed frugal, bat perhaps tbe most unpre- s it were, of all was taken tbe teutious, as aiorniijg after oar arrival at Lake Bennett. We came ahead with part of our goods loaded upon a haud sled— they call it a sleigh in this country. We took a tent, a stove, blankets, sleeping bays and enough pilot bread and block chocolate to answer the requirements of a meal in case of need, supposing that the balance of our goods would follow by dog team before night. A blizzard was raging, but as it blew upon our backs it was not seriously uncomfortable save •that the snow filled up and blotted out the trail iu some places. It was almost EG criticises me newspapers se« ; verely for what be terms their sensational reports of great gold discoveries. In almost every case, he says, where hundreds of dollars have been taken out they have been magnified to thousands. Yet he is on his way back, chough not as an argonaut He takes in a large amount of provisions, which he hopes to sell at a good profit. Another man who is just returning from Dawson City tells rue that 2,000 men were ont of work there all winter. On the other band, I have equally reliable authority to the effect that the richness of tha gold diggings is simply marvelous. It is my duty to get facts, so 1 shall only mention these reports incidentally iu passing. The truth may lie midway between the two extremes or it may be far upon one side or the other. Whether the country is all that it is represented to be or the reverse, the } struggles and privations that many are making to reach it are astonishing and in some cases extremely melancholy, yesterday I was sent for to call upon a TENNIS RULES. to the Kul«« Governing Foot Fa»lta, The time is rapidly approaching for the appearance of the rules, although tennis revised tennis is one of the XC4T ACKOWLEDGE IT.

The site chosen was a, somewhat isolated one andiiot quite according to our liking, but as it was the one previously agreed upon we did not feel like changing it, lest the party who was to bring the balance of onr outfit should be unable to find us. Until about S o'clock in the evening we had hopes that onr goods would soon arrive, but we then concluded the weather was so bad that the man did not dare to start from our old encampment. Twenty Degrees Below Zero. So we had to make the best of it. After we had got the tent up we were weary enough to retire without making a tire but we first finished up the pilot bread and nearly all of the chocolaie. This answered very well, for onr midday meal, taken at a bunkhouse some five miles back and costing $1.50 each had been a substantial oue. The next morning "gaunt hunger," as the uove writer expresses it, stared us m the face with impunity. But that was not the in, our eyes fell upon about as cheerless pud pitiful a place as,you could imagine. There -was no fire, the snow had blown in until quite a pile had accumulated, che raau : fi outfit was thrown in one corner in confusion, and tbe poor fellow himseU' lay stretched between blankets, tie picture of desolation and despair.

He broke me up in business and ruined my family " Marshal Singleton found him lying" on his back with a revolver clasped in his hand, a single empty shell in « the remaining live shells never havingbeenloaded. Five cart ridgi-s were found in Weidner's vest pocket, similar to the one fired from the revolver. These facts tend to disprove any implication of Dove. Mrs. Wiedner is a relative of Mrs. Lee Dove He was accepted as a partner by Lee Pove & Co.. as the firm was formerly known, and put In charge of a *tore owned by the fivm at Bloomington. This venture proved to be a failure after he took charge, and the partnership was closed. NYeidner buying the Interest held by his partner, payinspart cash and part in notes, with his mother as surety. Then he moved the stork from Bloomington to Seymour, where it went into the hands cf a receiver. Dove and his partner put in their claim, and received such payment as was made. and then brought suit against the surety. An effort was then made to settle out of court, and Wiedner came here for a conference with Dove. They had h talk in the carpet room of the store. After the establishment had closed at 6 p. m. and all the clerks bad gone, with the exception of G. T. Allen, head clerk. Wiedner mot Dove in his ofhre and began quarreling with him. HP attempted to draw a revolver, but Allen interposed and then TViedner walked to the rear of the store, while Dove passed to the from.

Our Peary kerosene stove— by the way, if you would a camping out go don't take one—was back with the rest of onr outfit and there was no wood of any consequence less than two miles away". I had nothing but a hunting hatchet with which to cut it either. So, although we had arisen early, it was nearly 11 o'clock before I had enough to last the day. Then it had to be hauled back ou the haud slad to the teut. It was the coldest morning wa have seen since we came bere, the mercury registering 20 degrees below aero at the tent door at 6:80 o'clock. I have been more uncomfortable from cold, however, with the mercury 40 above. Three Coarsen of Pudding;. But the breakfast? Well, my wife had some oornmeal, some butter and some sugar, a shallow baking dish, brought along by mistake, and a drink ing cup. After we bad started tbe fire we melted some scow, and, I judge, it takes about a bushel of snow to make a put a mustard plaster oil his back. A fire was also kindled in his stove, and others attended to bis wants later in the day. This morning I. saw him moving down the trail. The chances are, however, that he will never reach Dawson City or even the Yukou river. Not far from our tent a young man lies critically ill of typhoid fever. He is more fortunate than many, however, for he has comparatively good care, andbisfather, who is a physician iu Tacoma, has arrived to attend him. Doubtless the disease was contracted farther back on the trail, where iu some localities water is unfit to drink until . after it has been boiled. This being the casa now, who can prophesy what the condition of the trail will be later on when the thaw oomes and tbe melted snow exposes the carcasses of innumerable dead horses and dogs as well as the other plagues of a total indifference to sanitary laws.

Then we whittled out some sticks, making one answer for knife, fork and spoon, and sat down to breakfast Our first course was just tbe plain padding without any frills. It was naturally rather light, as the first course should always be. The second wa? pudding with batter and for tbe third we had pudding with butter and sugar. This last was the piece de resistance of the banquet, and I can assure you it tasted mighty good. We likewise had just a bit of chocolate left over from the night before which served to put the finishing touch ou this unique meal. But asks the reader, why are you at Lake Bennett? Why not hasten down the Yukon as soon as possible? We are I here simply because there is not the slightest gain in proceeding more rapidly. Caribou Crossing, at tbe foot of this lake where the current is extremely swift, is already breaking up and Thirty Mile river beyond is open for ten miles down. Several people have already capsized in trying to get through, and it is safe to say that no one with a full outfit will reach Dawson City this year before the Yukon river breaks up. A few have come out over the ice, bat it is one thing to travel with a load of 100 pounds and quite another to take aloug 1,200 pounds. Major Walsh, who is now at Lak« Benneitt, says there is every indication that the ice will break up this year in tbe streams a month earlier than usual. However this may be, spring has not come here yet by a long shot, although the days are i^easinp in length about sis minutes every 24 hours. Bnndredi Magnified to Thousands. here is tbe utter unconcern for Sunday. So far as I can observe, one day is about tbe same as another, and those who have always regarded Sunday as a day of rest in the east seem to lose sight of tbe day's observance utterly when they are on the trail. In some cases there 'may be an excuse for this. It is not often that a day dawns that is in every way suitable for travel toward the Yukon. One day may be bright and pleasant enough, but the storm of the preceding oiie may have obliterated all traces of tbe trail. Another may be all that could be desired save for the wind which blows from ahead instead of from the rear. Again, it may be so cold that none but the most hardy venture out. Thus when the wind and the trail and the temperature are right the average argonaut feels that he must take advantage of ench conditions, even though it be the usual day of rest. Tomorrow I expect to go ptarmigan shooting and to have my first experience with snowshoes. I will give you the outcome in a subsequent letter, as I will also my career as a boatbuilder, for every one who goes down the Yukou must either buy a boat or build one. Just at present a suitable craft of this kind costs from $800 to $400 each. With a little assistance and instruction I think I can earn the price of a boat and yet not be accused of leaving the field of economy and wandering over into that of parsi- A. A.

Bull of Newport has gona to New York to fill an important engagement at West Point and New Haven in the football line. The Army Officers' Athletic association, which bandies cadet athletics at the Military academy on the Hudson, believes that the game of football is now at such an advanced stage of development among the cadets that the right sort of spring practice in drop kicking and punting is all that is necessary to bring about "the best season yet" the coming fall. Last year the cadets played Tale a 6—4 game, and this year it is evident they mean to do all in their power to finally realize their dearest ambition, I to defuat-a big college eleven. At New Haven Mr. Bull will continue to direct tbe kicking practice, of which he has had charge ever since he graduated in 1888. Mr. Bull's reputation as the championship iu cept he be able to raise weighing 100 kilograms. The struggle for the world s championship in holding up dumbbells will be arranged as follows: Lifting the greatest weight from the ground with either hand and standing at attention, lifting the heaviest dumbbells above tha head with either hand, the same when standing at ease, holding a 50 kilogram dumbbell with either hand for tbe longest time, lifting the two greatest weights at once, and finally holding for the longest time with both bands a dumbbell weighing 100 kilograms. The victor is to receive a prize worth oOO florins and Che title of world's champion iu weight holding and the large world'g championship medal. There will be four minor cash prizes, Tbe struggle for the European championship in wrestling will be in the Qreco-Boman style, with a championship belt, 1,400 florins and a title as the^prizes---Excbange.
