Annual Gathering of the XT. 0. Nelson Manufacturing Co. ner and who could lay claim to Lake Blackburn as a 2-year-old, arrived In town yesterday. Mr.

Williams sold bis entire stable and breeding establishment. one of the most elaborate in Kentucky, recently, and will in the future confine himself to starting on the big tracks, in the event, of course, that his services are desired. The object of Williams' visit to this city was to find out for certain Just what tne St. Louis Jockey Club has done about securing a starter for its annual meeting next year. "I saw President Wells." said Mr.

Williams, "and he informed that -'it was the intention of the St. Louis Jockey Club to secure Caldwell again If possible, It Caldwell is not secured, Mr. Wells promised to give my application due "The North Bergen meeting will not close until a day or two previous to the opening of the legitimate season in the East, which will take place with the opening of the Brooklyn Jockey Club. This will' occur as usual about the middle of May. Now the St.

Louis meeting will be inaugurated the latter part of April, so that even should Caldwell be secured, some other man win have to be signed to take his place until the close of the North Bergen meeting, providing, of course, Caldwell cannot make some arrangements with his winter employers that will permit bim to come west a week or two before the close of their meeting. Should he fall to succeed In this, the Fair Grounds managers will have to secure some other starter to officiate and Williams has put In an application for the place. THE FAIR GROUNDS MEETING. Interesting spectacle Is presented of the largest buyer receiving the biggest dividend, x- of the Self-Culture Olub. Mr.

Neustadt read a list of subjects debated at meetings of the club, and stated that a regular debating club had been organized and that a course of lectures had been arranged for this winter. Leciaire has a brass band lead by Mr. Thomas, and at this Juncture of the proceedings It was called upon for a selection. Before giving the music Mr. Thomas on behalf of the employes, offered the following resolutions: Whereas.

The corporation of which we are a part has been practicing profit-sharing longer than any other large concern in the United States; and hereas. There are daily evidences in the press that the system under which we operate is attracting the serious attention of business men who a few years ago gave it only a passing thought as a thing Utopian; be It Resolved, That we record eur Increased confidence In and appreciation of the business principle and business practice of co-operation. Resolved, That, since seven years of experience under the system has resulted not only in the prosperity and exceptional growth of our company, but in an actual distribution of the benefits among the men at the bench as well as among the capitalists, we commend the plan as a harmonlzer of the interests and views of both classes, and as a powerful agent for the solution of the old and stubborn problem presented by the antagonism between capitalists and laborers. Kesolved. That since it has brought, us to shorter working days, forthe standard day.

with the added benefit of an interest in the company's profits, at.d an opportunity not elsewhere enjoyed for investing our savings where there is a direct relation between the profits on our Investment, and the quantity and quality of the work we do, we observe with "pleasure the disposition of railroad men. and other large handlers of capital, to adopt the method that has so much of humanity and so much of common sense to commend THE PLAN INDORSED. The resolutions were unanimously adopted. Speeches were then made by Prof. Woodward, a stockholder; MaJ.

J. B. Merwln; J. B. Case, Secretary of the companyj Allen C.

Bush, the book-keeper, and ex-Senator Uadley. All these addresses were congratulatory upon the success of the undertaking and the solid basis upon which the co-operative institution now found Itself. Mr. Bush said the company reminded him of the Colossus of Rhodes. It had one foot in St.

Louis and the other away over in Illinois, and Mr. Hadley expressed a hope that the Colossus would pull its other foot over on the east side of the river very soon. In the course of his address Secretary Case said- "The year Just closed has given us a fair test. The first seven or eight months of our fiscal year found us facing a sluggish and declining market. Metal goods in our line were steadily shrinking in market value; dealers were loth to buy.

and at best buying only for actual wants. These conditions, as every merchant knows, bring severe competitions, and stocks previously made or provided must be sold on a lower line of prices than prevailed when the goods or raw materials were bought. We. in common with other manufacturers in our line of trade, suffered these shrinkages in the values of our stocks, until the market conditions changed and the recovery and activity commenced, say Aug. 1.

To every call upon the factory force for lower cost (or larger production at same fixed charges) we have met the hearty response, 'We will, or we will try, and to try In the American vocabulary means to do It. As a net result the hard lines of the earlier months of the year have provoked such new methods of economy in manufacture, such Increased efficiency In application of labor that we have closed the year just passed and entered upon the new year better equipped than ever before to meet the demand for our products. "Such sluggish periods In trade are valuable schoolmasters to everyone Interested In manufacturing. They teach the lesson that the best methods, latest appliances, least waste with no leaks, are the necessary conditions to success. The occasional -hard year' need not alarm us, but the man who learns nothing from the hard year has always a cause for alarm.

A smaller dividend may be much more than compensated for in an added experience, zeal and efficiency to meet the demands during the years to come. We both suggest andiclalm this for Leclaire as the dial of time marks the close of 1892. In the course of the proceedings the Leclaire quartet sang and the band played. A luncheon was spread In the bowling and billiard building, and the co-operative workmen elbowed the managers as they ate the delicacies that had been bountifully supplied. The excursionists returned to the city in the evening, arriving at 8 o'clock.

Many stories were told on the way of the enthusiasm of the workmen, who, though required to work only nine hours a day, willingly remain In the shops at night In order to finish work on time. Thus far the Nelson company, to all appearances, realizes the workingman's ideas of co-operation of labor and capital. The men get as good wages as are paid to any workmen for similar work in the city. They receive a dividend on their wages, sick benefits and general good treatment in the way of short hours, holidays and social enjoyments, and they seem contented and happy.

Williams, the noted Kentucky, turfman, whose stable last season Included Chief Justice, Jugurtha, Emma-, Primrose. Princess, Llmo and that old campaign Glock- Coffee Cake The Talent Oat of Form at the East ADBLSHHE AITS DYER THE ONLY FAVORITES THAT SCORES.

Jaok Murray, at 20 to 1, Beat Out a Good Held Res-alts at Guttenbarg, Gloucester. Koby, Hawthorne and New Orleans The Fair Grounds" Starter St- Louis Jockey Club's Stakes Racing News. Two favorites, a second and third choice and one outsider, Jack Murray, who closed at 20 to 1. were successful over magnificent going at the course across the river yesterday. The weather was cold and cheerless, nevertheless the usual contingent of Saturday regulars were on band to witness the sport, which was hardly above the ordinary." Adrienne was the only well-backed first choice that managed to pull through, and her victory did not cause the general public much rejoicing.

This was due to the fact that she opened and closed at a price that held back all but the lg players. Mattle Kinney's failure to win the opening scramble was the cause of a good portion of the public losing considerable and the same must be said of BlUy Boiler's failure to even show In the next race. Billy closed an equal first choice with Dyer In this event, pennyroyal at 6 to 6 and Mount McGregor at 8 to 5 were two more favorites that were bowled over and in consequence caused much rejoicing among the bookmakers. The betting was heavy from the start, and notwithstanding the fact that the ring was enlarged considerably recently, the Jam reminded one of an election night crowd around a newspaper office. The opening scramble was an eleven-sixteenths-mile affair for 2-year-olds, and in the opening betting Patience.

Ike S. and Mattle Kinney were quoted equal favorites at 2tol. Mattle Kinney, however, caught the fancy of the crowd. and In consequence closed first choice at 6 to 2. Ike S.

was next In demand at 3 to I. while Patience closed at 7 to 2. The rest of the field could be had at from 6 to 50 to 1. To a good start the youngsters got off. with the second choice.

Ike in front. Gorman sat right down at the start to ride Bertram's son. bat after showing the way to about the middle of the back stretch. Ike concluded he had enough, and retired in favor of Mattle Kinney. The latter, after leading around the turn, was nailed by Patience, who wheeled Into the stretch, like a wnirlwlnd.

She challenged Mattle Kinney at the head of the stretch and a beautiiui nnisn ensued, which ended at the wire with Patience in front by a short head. Credo ran third, a length off. Dyer, with Mike Berwen up, and Billy Roller opened and closed equal first choices, in the next event, a three-fourths of a mile dash, at 3 to 1. Clarion, who opened at 4, was not neglected, although the bookmakers did not seem to think much of Strobel's gelding, and as good as 5 to 1 could be had against him at the close. Mike Bergen was off last with Gay's old gelding at the start, but settled down on him Immediately and saon had the favorite well up.

Montclalr, Barney Schrleber's 3-year-old. led well Into the back stretch, where Dyer passed bim and assumed command of the procession. At the head of the stretch he was lapped by Montclalr, but he drew away towards the finish and won easily by one length. Montclalr was one-half a length in front of Jolly Tar at the Wire. Pennyroyal, another one of Barney Schrleber's color-bearers, was made the first choice at the start for the third race, a one-mile run, at 6 to 5.

The crowd, however, thought toetter of Fannie S. and backed her down lrom 4 to 2 to 1, at which price she closed an equal favorite with Pennyroyal, whose price had lengthened out. Avon d'Or, May Curl and Fannie S. were first to show, in the order named. The trio had matters all their own way, until well Into the backstretch, where old man Davis commenced to move up with Jack Murray, a 20 to 1 shot.

As the field wheeled Into the stretch for the final struggle, Jack was slightly in front of the favorite. Davis let his mount out. however, tcwards the finish and won, pulling up by at least three lengths. Pennyroyal was about the same distance In front of Avon d'Or. Mount McGregor was backed down from 2 to 1 to 8 to 5 to win the fourth event, a three-Iourth mile scramble.for all ages, leporine was the second choice, at 4 to 1.

while Midway closed at 9 to 2. Col. Wheatley and the favorite were In front when the flag Sashed, but the Colonel retired in favor of Wild Sunflower before the first quarter. The latter and the favorite then ran as- a team until the turn to the stretch, where Leporine moved up and made the first section, a triple combination. In the stretch Gorman drew away with Leporine and passed the wire an easy winner by one and one-halt lengths.

Mt. McGregor. Midway and; col. Wheatley were next to finish in the order namad. heads apart.

Tbe'big plungers could see nothing else but Adrienne in the closing race, an Owners' handicap at eleventh-sixteenths of a mile. She opened fir" choice at 4 to and closed at the same quotation. Liberty 'Bell and Servla were each backed down from 4 to 3 to 1. The rest could be had atf rom 15 to 100 to 1. Servla was leading at the first quarter, but was overhauled by the favorite in the back-stretch, who then came through and won hands down, by at least two lengths.

Servla defeated Bob Miller for the place, by about oue-half that. distance. The summary follows: First race, eleven-sixteenths of a mile Patience 103 (Mclntyre). 7 to 2, won: Mattle Kiimer 10a (J. AVeber), 5 to 2, second; Credo 108 (Uallas-her), 6 to 1, third.

Gray Minai ifS Voltaire lOOiUauui 100 James Still, a Negro, Has Fasted for Sixty-Four Days. HE 0AHH0T EAT, BUT IS BTJ8TAIHZD BT ANOINTING HIM8ELF WITH OH Food Makes Him Sick and He Doe Not Swallow Water Hie Only Nourishment the Application of Oil Twice Each Day Physicians Consider the Singular Case. Jamesburg. N. Dec.

17. In the reform school at this place there is a negro boy who can give Faster Jacques points and then beat him in a contest of abstention from food. The boy's name Is James Still. He Is 14 years old. He has taken no food of any consequence into bis stomach since his admission into the Institution, which was In August, 1893.

It is also attested by physicians that no food of any description passed the' boy's lips during the period of sixty-four days, beginning In September of this year. Strangely enough Still did not grow thin during this fast In fact, he gained in weight, adding fifteen pounds to his avoirdupois. He wanted to continue his fast, but the attending physicians refused to permit him to do so. His last fast was broken by given him milk, then with a specially prepared beef tea. and then with crackers soaked In warm water and sugar.

James said that they all tasted alike to ntm. Since then, however, he has taken meat in his mouth and chewed It, but has not swallowed any. He says that If he had any money he would be glad to back himself to the full extent of his pile against any professional or amateur faster In the world. When young Still was admitted Into the Institution he was put to work In the brush factory. He had frequent vomiting spells, however, and after six or seven days was transferred to the h6spital.

There he rejected food and begged constantly to be allowed to rub his body with grease, but this the officers, with due regard for clean sheets, pillows and clothing, refused to let him ido. The boy finally became so 111 that he could not walk. He bad to crawl around the hospital on his hands and knees. His body and limbs became greatly emaciated, though his face retained Its normal aspect, while his stomach became much swollen. Lumps the size of eggs formed upon his knees.

He still begged for oil and permission was finally given him to use it. The fast was undertaken, not wholly to gratify James' ambition, but because Dr. Zandt believed that if the boy went without for a time his stomach might become normal. The boy says he was taken to the colored orphan asylum at Camden when 2 years old. When big enough he was put out to domestic service in a physician's family, he says.

He ran away, but was arrested. He was sent to the Philadelphia Reformatory, and from there he was transferred to the orphanage two yearsbefore he was transferred to Jamesburg. While free James says he was 'Induced to enter a medical college in Philadelphia, where the students "put him to sleep." He points to a lot of scars and punctures on his body which he says are the result of their work. He begs for oil to anoint his body. A four-ounce bottle lasts him about a week.

He applies the oil twice every day as a general thing, and bis skin seems to absorb it at once and in a few minutes no race of the oil Still says that the oil was first applied by a doctor at the Camden orphanage as long ago as be can remember and that he has used it ever sIiicp. He prefers olive oil If he can get It, but lard or fat of any kind will do just as well, he says. He rinses his mouth with water, but seldom swallows any. Still was not weighed at the beginning of bis fast, but at the close he tipped the beam at ninety-one pounds, which Is about his present Still is five feet one Inch tall and well developed.

Ills flesh is firm and hard. He has resumed his work In the brush shop, but is allowed privileges which the other boys are not. He does about as much work as any of his companions, however. The doctors who are watching the peculiar case say the boy has either a benign tumor or a closure of the assophagus. They admit that the fact that the boy thrives without food is a mystery to them.

The medical society of New Tork will discuss the case at its next meeting, when a full report of the case will be submitted. STATE DEMOCEATIC MEETING. Workers Who Were Not Invited to the Banquet to Have Their Day. Secretary Sam B. Cook of Mexico, Mo.

has called a meeting of the Democratic State Committee to convene in St. Louis at the Laclede Hotel on Wednesday, Dec. 22. The object ot the meeting Is not stated In the call, but members of the committee state that the object of the meeting 18 for the sole purpose of transacting the unfinished business of the campaign. Owing to the death of Committeeman D.

J. Allen ot Piedmont, the election of a candidate to succeed the deceased member will also be discussed, and if an election to fill the vacancy is had, the new member of the committee will likely be Capt. Dick Collins of Wayne County. As the call for the meeting was not made until after the invitations had been Issued for the Stone banquet at the Mercantile Club on Thursday night, it is rumored that the real object of the meeting is to look after the Interests of the St. Louis ward workers and other friends of Gov.

Stone, who were not honored with invitations to the banquet on Thursday. This rumor is dented by several members of the committee, who claim that the friends of Gov. Stone who were not invited to the banquet cared less about It than those who re-ceivedi Invitations and were taxed $12 each for being In attendance. A full attendance of the committee will be held on the 22d, however, and It is known that quite a number of St. Louis politicians who were not honored 'on Thursday night will meet members of the committee at the Laclede, when the matter of political preference for appointees to office will be discussed in a much more thorough manner than it was at the banquet tendered Gov.

Stone at the Mercantile club Thursday night, even though the Governor-elect will not be in attendance. Candidates for State Offices. H. Martin Williams of t. Charles and Ex-Go v.

David A. Ball of Pike County have decided that they are satisfied with their present vocations and will ask nothing at the hands of the Incoming administration. Col. Ball has been favorably mentioned as a suit-able man for United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri, but last night at the Laclede the Pike County statesman an nounced that he wanted no office within the gift of the government. Mr.

Williams. It was thought, would again be made reading clerk of the House, but his name being mentioned in connection with the office ot consul-General to Melbourne, he concluded not to ask the next chief clerk of the House to be appointed to his old position. Since his former -declaration, he bas concluded not to press his claims for Consul -General, and will, consequently content himself with his t. Charles newspaper during the present winter. Candidates for appointive and elective offices are sprouting out all over the State and each day the list is Increasing.

For Ad Jutant-General, Frank Mitchell of Howard county, Gus Hawkins of St. Louts, If red Fleming of Kansas City and the present Incumbent are named. For warden ot the penitentiary John L. Morrison of Howard County, the present warden, will accept another term, while Frank P. Anderson of Vernon County, B.

P. Bailey of Callaway. James L. Pace of Bates, F. P.

A Dividend of Four Per Cent Paid Workmen on Their Wages Address of President Nelson The Company's Vil-lag'e and the Co-operative System A Plan Which Works Admirably. Three hundred operatives of the N. O. Nelson Manufacturing Co. yesterday unanimously declared the profit-sharing system of conducting mercantile and manufacturing enterprises a success, and a plan, which If properly carried out, Inures to the material benefit of the employe.

In the office of the company at Eighth and St. Charles streets, this notice has been posted for the past two or three days: A special train will lea th Union Depot at 1 o'clock sharp en Saturday, Dec. 17, for Leclaire, and will return about 6:30 o'clock. All employes are invited and those who go will receive full time. K.

O. Nelson. President. This was the form of the invitation of the company to the employes to attend the third annual excursion to Its co-operative town of Leclaire, just across the tracks of the St. L.

K. C. road from the town of Ed-wardsville. As everybody employed by the Nelson company has a direct Interest in the concern's affairs it is deemed proper to give them a yearly opportunity to Inspect its works at Leclaire as part proprietors. Profit-sharing, as the co-operative system Is very generally called, is upon trial in this country, and is claiming wide-spread attention among thoughtful people who would solve the problem of adjusting the Interests of capital and labor upon a basis satisfactory to all.

Yesterday's excursion threw considerable light upon this interesting subject. THE TEIP. When the special drew out of Union Depot there were about 200 operatives aboard and perhaps fifty outsiders, who had received special invitations. They were a well-dressed, prosperous-looking and Jolly set of workmen, upon a perfectly familiar footing with the officers of the company, and they manifested as much Interest in the expedition as the President himself. The company has its large plant at Leclaire, where 100 men are employed under the general superlntendency of J.

II. Neustadt. There are eight large shops for turning out the woodwork used In the manufacture of bath tubs, plumbing goods, etc. Some of the shops are for planlnsr, sawing, dressing and carving wood and others for preparing the copper lining and tinning the prepared copper sheets. In addition the company has a plan by which it enables its employes to secure homes on Its tract of land, and there are now about twenty neat, comfortable looking residences on the grounds, together with a club house, bowling and billiard resort, schoolhouse and other adjuncts to a new and thriving town.

The steam whistles of the shops were all ablast when the visitors from the establishments in the city Joined the resident workmen. The doors were wide open and the slfiht-seers were soon wandering about the extensive buildings watching the saws and the planes, the polishers and fancy woodwork machines that turn out beautiful embossed panels which until a few years ago had to ba executed by hand. During the afternoon a meeting was held in one of the shops, where the somewhat remarkable union of Interest between employer and employe. was displayed. Not only were the workmen but their families were there, interested listeners and participants in the proceedings.

After an address of welcome by Superin-tendant Xeustadt in which he pronounced pront-sharlng no longer a theory a tact. President Aelson read hts word of which was lost by his eager audience. The address, In relating what had been done. Is explanatory of the scheme upon which the institution Is carried on. Mr.

Nelson said: MR. NELSON'S ADDRESS. Gentikms.v This is our seventh annual profit-sharing meetinsr. and it is again my goed fortune to announce a dividend on wages. In 16W6 the dividend was 5 per cent; in 18OT, 10 per cent; lhbS, 8 per cent; In 1889, 10 per cent, in 1890, 10 percent; in 1891.

7 percent; and in 1892, just closed, 4 percent. I wish the dividend were larger; but one of the lessons you will learn as profit sharers and stockholders that business, like the crops of the field and the waters of the Mississippi, will not conform to any desired standard. There Is no roya( rod to profits any more than to learning, nor can effort always overcome the variations of demand and competition. When it is taken into account that during these seven years the sick have been fully cared for out of the Provident fund, which is assigned from the profits: that for four years your working day has been nine hours at standard ten-hour py and no deduction holidays, it may be a matter of satisfaction that the seven years have yielded you, in cash or stock, nearly two-thirds of a year's pay in addition to full wages. You have given the company faithful service, and it may well be assumed that to profit-sharing ts aue, in part, the comparative steadiness of the company's business, and its immunity from loss in any year during so lone a period.

Those of you who have invested your dividends or savings in the stock of the company will receive thereon a dividend of 8 per cent fer the rear just passed. The necessary reserve and the nrovident fund are provided for. The same terms will hold good for the coming year the lowest commercial rate of interest being charged for capital, and then 2 per cent on waves to 1 on capital. Alter enough money has been earned to pay you your wages, and pay capital its wages, then you come In for a double share. It rests with all of ns together, whether the wages dividends shall be nothing.

or4 per cent, or 10 or 12 per cent. It Is a point of honor, as well as self-interest, for each of us to do his best; the man who does less cheats himself as well as his fellows. To you, the home-makers and co-operators of Leclaire, we who planned It offer our gratitude and thanks for the Intelligence and zeal and enthusiasm with which you have carried out all that we had hoped for. That you have made the foundation Arm and secure for an intelligent and attractive and prosperous community, no one can doubt who knows as I know, how cordially you have joined each other and us, in whatever pointed to the common good. While the social status of Village Leciaire and its influence upon those who shall live within it, or those who from a distance maybe influenced by It, will In the main depend upon the course vou shape for it, yet you hare an Important ally in the fixed policy of the company to devote all its available resources to the development of Leciaire, Its works, its homes and its Institutions.

Oar guests to-day, as well as employes, will be interested to know that co-operation and profit-sharing are steadily advancing in this as in other countries. Since our last meeting an association for the promotion of profit-sharing in the United States has been formed, and a quarterly journal has been established. A considerable number of manufacturers have adopted, substantially, the plan in use here, and several of the important railroads of the counrry have decided to try it. Profit-sharing with the principal employes has long been in use by the most enterprising aud successful business men, and they are beginning to understand that to oroaden the system, so as to include all employes, is just as effective in making their business safe and protitabie. Co-Operation.

not simply between two or three partners, but between tne hundreds who work together, is being recognized as a better system than the competition which sets the whole world by the ears. OTHER REPORTS. Anderson of the Provident Committee of St. Louis read a report showing that S800 had been expended In carina for the sick employed In the t. Louis establishments.

He recommended that separate committees be appointed for Leclaire and Mound City, where the company also has a plant. A similar report was read by Mr. Rice of a self-constituted provident committee of Leclaire, showing that thn committee bad disbursed $316.10 among sixteen sick employes In Leclaire. Miss Callie D. colt, teacher of the school and Kindergarten of Leclaire, read a report showing that she had seven pupils In the school and sixteen little charges In the.

kindergarten. Perhaps the most striking feature of this strange community was made known to those not connected with the company when J. II. van Arsdale of the Leclaire Co operative Association told what had been accomplished by the Leclaire store. He said that on May 1892, nine members of the company nad agreed to donate 50 cents a untIl 50 should have been collected for the starting of a store.

They bought with this money a stock of miscellaneous goods at wholesale pnces and sold at ruling retail prices. They performed all the work connected with the store, and when the net gain amounted to 15 per cent on tne capital Invested they divided the profits among the purchasers. This was after deducting a reasonable Interest on the capital. Here tne STAKES TO BE COMPETED FOR THE COMING SPRING FORTY-EIGHT DAYS' RACING. The regular spring meeting of the St.
