TO BEAT FIEEE. Straw Candidates Brought Out to Deceive the People. AJTTTHIHG TO BXAT KTXB IS THE WAB CBT 0? THE CTJXLOM FACTIOH, A Cunning1 Seneme Which Didn't Work Juare Clurk Keani to Work for the Nomination, and Get It It Ho Can Oresnamls Not In It, But Collins Is Foasible. 8PBIKOFIELD, Feb. 13. It Is an open secret at the present tlm that Oullom and Tanner and Sam Jones, wltti some others scattered here and there who wished to see Fifer removed, entered Into an arrangement whereby candidates were to crop up in various portions of the State for the purpose of not only disheartening Filer but with the avowed Intention of actually defeating him. The candidates were given to understand that they were only In the race as a blind, .and that when the proper hour came they were to withdraw and hand over the support of their adheronts to some particular one to be selected, but that particular one would certainly not be Gov. Flfer. A list of names was made out, and these were to be used one by one until exhausted, and then new names were to be added. Among these names were those of Attorney-General Hunt of Edgar, ex-State Senator Horace S. Clark of Coles, ex-Railroad and Warehouse Commissioner B. F. Marsh of McDonough, ex-Penl-tentlary Commissioner James S. Martin of Marlon, Chairman State Central Committee A. M. Jones of Jo Daviess, and State's Attorney Joel M. Longenecker of Chicago, Cook County. "Put up more candidates," was the cry, and agents and emissaries were sent hither and thither coaching new men In the all-important duties they had to perform, that of allowing their names to come before the people for the purpose of misleading them. But to the successful carrying out of this scheme there was an obstacle. It was readily conceded that Hunt and Jones were ready to withdraw at any time, but that the others were liable to stick and take their chances. CLARK WAS IN EARNEST. Judge Clark gave It out cold that he was In the race to stay and that he did not lend the use of his name for any kind of monkey business, but that he and his supporters would go before the convention and work like beavers for his nomination, and once the nomination was secured that such was equal to an election. He would listen to no plan. As to withdrawing for the purpose of letting some one else in It was simply absurd, and the proposition was an insult to his manhood and Intelligence. When this determination reached the ears of the managers they swore some pretty new coined oaths and said they might have known better than to approach such a fool as he was with 6uch an idea. There was no coaxing that would lead blm off the track. They told him how It was only done for a purpose, but he Informed them that he had a purpose of bis own and that he was going to adhere to It. So there he sticks and Is liable to stick, much the wires. Marsh and Longenecker might be lea away so as not to give any trouDie as they were not looked upon as oartlcularly strong anyway, but there stood Horace Clark as Immovable as Gibraltar. CALLING FOR GRESHAM. The man that was thought to be able to combine all the elements opposed to Flfer was Judge Collins of Chicago. Of late years the Judge by virtue of his position on the bench has left politics alone, except in a quiet, unobtrusive way, and when he was approached to lead the anti-Flfer hosts to victory he said he would think about It. He was not dissatisfied with the position of Judge and thought It quite as honorable as to be Governor, but still if the nomination came to him in an earnest supplicating way he did not know but that he would accept. But bustle, he would not. That was beneath him, ana that was nis ultimatum. Collins is not a novice In politics by any means. He has z o TY7 0 1 thA Sto to In Tha Toirlclattira anSI ma a fcpeaKer oi tne Mouse just Delore he was elected to the bench. He would not be reck oned with those who were supposed to with draw at me tap oi tne oeu. Judge Gresham of Chicago has also been spoken of, hut it Is not thought that he favorably considers it himself. Ex-Gov. tKlesby has also been mentioned, but "Uncle Dick" could not be Induced to enter the race. The A'etrs of this city came out the other day strongly advocating Oglesby as the presidential candidate from this State Instead of Senator Cullom, and the Idea has been received with much favor. Oglesby said the other day that he could not be induced to think of the governorship, but as tp the presidency why lightning is apt to ' 'strike almost anywhere, and he thinks it might hit a less shining mark than himself. For Lieutenant-Governor the candidates are Lyman B. Kay of Grundy, the present Incumbent; ex-Representative Joseph N.Carter of Adams and ex-State Senator William F. L. Had ley of Madison. For Auditor there are Charles W. Pavey of Jefferson, the present incumbent; Coroner H. L. Hertz of Cook and Representative Charles A. Allen of Vermilion. Pavey, while presenting a bold front. Is shaking In bis shoes, and, although he has made an excellent officer, Hertz Is after him. For Treasurer there are ex-State Treasurer John R. Tanner of Clay. State Senator M. M. Bassett of Peoria and ex-Auditor Charles P. Swlgertof Cook. In this race Tanner Is so far In the lead that the others would seem to have a very slender chance. For Attorney-General, Representative Geo. W. Prince of Knox and ex-Representative J. M. Trultt of Montgomery. For Secretary of State, Isaac N. Pearson of McDonough, the present Incumbent, and Mai. H. O. Pugh of Marshall. For Congressman at Large, State Senator Charles K. Fuller or Boone, Orvllle F. Berry of Hancock and Milton W. Mathews of Champaign, ex-State Senators John McNulta of McLean and Theodore S. Chapman of Jersey. For Railroad and Warehouse Commissioners, John I. Klnaker ot Macoupin, George E. Wlllett of Cook and Richard Yates of Morgan. Yates is the son of Dick Yates, the "war Governor. " EAST ST. LOUIS. A, Locomotive Struck film A. Boy Bun Over Other Items.

Bernhardt in a Bound of Her Strongest Roles The Second Week of the Me integer Engagement The Pauline Opera Co. -Coulisse Chat. Local play-goers will again come under the spell of that bundle of caprices, nerves, abilities and fascinations, 6arah Bernhardt. Not less enthralling than her art is the per sonality of this wonderful woman. Her na ture Is kaleidoscopic. "She is full of surprises. She does and says things which would be fatal to other women and yet ' which seen In her are merely piquant and interesting. Her life Is a romance which never loses its charm for the public. She Is painter, sculptor, au thor and actor and shows remarkable talent In all of these capacities. It Is on the stage, however, that her greatest triumphs have been won, and In her line of work she Is without a peer. Art and magnetism com bine to give her performance a charm which makes them full of enjoyment, even to those who cannot understand a word she says. Her engagement preceding this was a brll llant success, and the popular Interest In this week's engagement Indicates that It will be repeated in a large measure. She will ap pear In three Sardou dramas, In which the genius of the French dramatist has been ex erted to fit tbe genius of Bernhardt. They may be regarded as the climatic efforts of career. In "La Tosca," "Cleopatra" and "Fedora" ilme. Bernhardt shows her most brilliant capabilities. The brilliancy of her work In them Is familiar to St. Loulsans. They will be given at the Grand Opera-house In tbe order named, beginning Thursday evening. On Saturday evening Mme. Bern hardt will appear In "Leah, the Forsaken. This will be her first appearance -In this play here, and It will afford opportunity to compare her with tbe other actresses who have essayed It. The production In which the Melnlnger company appear aurlng the second week of their engagement at the Olympic Is the "Hermann Stacht." This drama Is founded upon a famous Incident in the wars of the Germans against tbe Romans and Its produc tion is classed among the most magnificent of the Melnlnger repertoire. The play was first produced for the opening of the Royal Dresden Theater, and for this purpose neither labor nor expense was spared to reproduce accurately the arms, costumes and scenes of the period. It Is a spectacular production and is therefore in the line of the Melnlnger's best efforts. The German subject also enables them to give perhaps a more characteristic performance than that of "Julius Caesar." Tbe original scenery and accessories are promised. Although It was the intention of the man agement to present the "Hermannslacht" this evening, upon request of several lodges and societies "Julius Caesar" will be given a final performance and Von Klelst's great drama will therefore be made known for the first time to-morrow night. The Pauline Hall Opera Co. begins an en gagement at the Hagan this evening in "Mme. Favart." one of the most popular of Offenbach's operas. The title role affords abundant opportunities for Miss Hall to dis play her charms and talents. Although not high In the ranks of singers. Miss Hall has a statuesque figure, a winning personality and cleverness enough to make a pleasing im pression. She - appears in this opera In seven different disguises. The story of the opera may be briefly told as follows: Mme. Favart, the wife of Charles Favart. is a very beautiful womab, whom a certain Government official has become enamored of. Through this official's scheming Mme. Favart is connnea in a couvent. sne escapes and meets her husband at the Golden Crown Inn. That Is the first scene of the opera. Her husband Is also hiding from this same official. To elude the vigilance of the police and spies, who are searching for her, Mme. Favart assumes a number of disguises. She Is seen at various times as a French peasant girl, a waitress, a court lady, a soubrette, an old countess, a Tyrolese peddler boy, and as Venus. Mme. Favart and her husband. Charles, are relieved from the persecution of those who have been harassing them by the King, who happens to see Mme. Favart during a performance in wnicn she takes part. The King confounds her enemies and makes Charles Favart the manager ot a theater, and Charles, of course, makes Mme. Favart, his wife, the prima uonna, and all ends happily. Musical Director Kustls has Offenbach's original orchestration for the opera, and this will be adhered to as closely as possible. Addle Cora Reed, who made many friends here during her engagement at the Cave last summer, and who is a charming singer, will be the Susanne of the cast. William Blals-dell. who Is a popular comedian, will have good opportunities as Marquis de Pont Sabla. and among other clever people In the company are George C. Boniface, Jr., John Brand, Arthur K. Miller, Clara Palmer and Helen Dunbar. On Monday and Saturday evenings and for tne h eanesaay matinee tne aouoie Dill, rm I l)V I ii t-v ' I ana "La Belle Helene," will JJ J be given. One of the novelties of the season which will be made known to St. Loulsans for the first time at Pope's this afternoon is "Tuxedo," in which George Thatcher's Minstrels and Rich & Harris Comedy Co. are Joined. It Is an effort to blend two popular forms of amusement, minstrelsy and farce, In a neat way and is credited with high success. Its name is derived from and its scenes laid at that well known fashionable society resort. Tuxedo Park, situated among the Orange Mountains of New Jersey, about twenty miles from New York. Act first deals with tne trials of a coterie of society amateurs, who are sojourning at Tuxedo Park, in their attempts to get up an entertainment. Their amateur efforts are not very successful, and they are about to fall, when they learn that George Thatcher's Minstrels are rehearsing in a neighboring town, and they conclude to seek their assistance. Thatcher Is sent for, and their troubles explained to him. He agrees to assist them by bringing his minstrels to Tuxedo. Act second shows the minstrels on the lawn in front of the Tuxedo Club-house, giving their first part. George Thatcher, Hughey Dougherty, Burt Shepard, John A. Coleman and George Lewis appear as end men. Ed Marble acts as Interlocutor, and R. J. Jose, Raymon Moore, H. W. Frlllman and Tbos. Lewis furnish the solo and quartette selections. The amaterXrs occupy booths on either side and act as the audience and to give brilliancy to the scene, ladles and children soattered over the lawn. Act third Is devoted to gathering together the threads of the plot as outlined in act first. Aside from the names already mentioned there are in the company Misses Ida Fltzhugfi. Mamie Gllroy, Blanche Hayden. Grace Hamilton, Louise Rice and Laura Mulick and Messrs. G. W. Dukelan, Harry Avery, the three Powers brothers and Thatcher's own orchestra. "The Police Patrol," a melodramatic production of the realistic type, will be offered as the attraction at Havlln's Theater, begln-ing with a matinee to-day. The play has been given in all the principal cities is said, a considerable amount of success. Prominently introduced in two acts are a team of handsome white horses. In the first they are) found quietly standing In their stalls with everything in readiness for tbe coming alarm. When tbe gong sounds its call for the patrol wagon the horses dash from their stalls to the wagon pole, are hitched and make off in a space of time said to be less tnan five seconds. In the next act they are shown on the street during the making of an arrest, thus completing the picture and Illustrating the flight of "The Patrol" from the sound of the alarm until the arrest is made. The play is founded upon incidents connected with the Anarchist riots in Chicago, and Is said to abound In thrilling episodes. . The plump young, women of more or less color who travel under tbe name of Sam T. Jack's Creoles, will return to the Standard this week. Mr. Jack has made a careful selection of specimens of the girl of the mixed and with tableaux In which they figure as types of dasky beauty he gives genuine negro minstrel entertainment In which some of tbe best known performers take part.

Preparation Made for Entertaining Comrades Cape Girardeau Wants the Southeast Mia a our i Keunion Camp Jackson Celebration. The leading topic In Grand Army circles Is the Department Encampment at Chllll-coth6 March 23 and 24. The Chllllcothe comrades have Issued a circular giving some details of arrangements made at that end of the line for the occasion. The Chlllicotheans announce that they are arranging as rapidly as possible to make the encampment creditable to the order as well as worthy of the good name of the residents of the town who are so generously aiding the committee. Among the features of the encampment will be a camp fire at the Opera-house, an "Old Vets " ball at Odd Fellows' Hall, and a "beans bake" at Young's Block. Besides the encampment proper there will be several "side-shows" in which soldiers will be Interested. H. B. Seeley hopes to get up a meeting of prisoners of war, and W. M. Sapp wants a chaplain's convention. Those desiring further Information should address S. TJmphalbaugh concerning transportation, H. B. Spence about accommodation, W. B. Leach regarding entertainment all at Chllllcothe, Mo. . The local committee embraces members of Tlndall Post, Chllllcothe, and of Gardner Post, Gen. Wadsworth Post, Avaton Post, Col. H. E. Gilbert Post and Servant Parker Post, In the neighborhood. Chllllcothe is expected to swarm with comrades from everywhere within fifty miles of the place. A GRAND ARMY REUNION. There Is talk of a great reunion of the G. A. R. Posts of Southeast Missouri, this year. Cape Girardeau Is reaching out for the honor of having the meeting there. HASSENDEUBEL F08T. This Post has had another funeral David P. Harvey, who served In Company I, 7th Missouri Infantry. He was outside guard. A meeting of Hassendeubel's delegates to the State encampment was held. A letter from Louis Grund was read, declining to run for Department Commander, an office for which his friends have been urging him. It transpires that this use of his name has been without authority from him. The delegates voted to present Quartermaster Becker for the Council of Administration and to support Fast Commander Hart man as delegate to the National Encampment. The "Camp Jackson" Committee have arranged for a two-days' celebration of the capture of that famous stronghold. On May 8 will occur the general festival, and on May 9 tnere will be a reunion of the surviving members of the regiments participating in the affair. This is the first time Hassendeubel Post has assigned two days to this festival. The reunion will, It is expected, be noteworthy from the presence of surviving army officers who were connected with the movement in Missouri ana the Southwest, in April and May, 1361. Comrade Hartman Is Chairman of the Committee; Scherer, Secretary, and Kammerer, Treasurer. Frank Sebastian Is looking after the music, Fred Suessdorf, Invitations; Henry Miller, entertainment, and Henry Schubert, decorations. On Thursday nitrht about fifty of the comrades serenaded Commander ZImmerer at nis residence, south Grand avenue. He was taken by surprise, but Mrs. ZImmerer found ways and means to set up a nice lunch, and the boys emptied many a glass In honor of the Commander and his wife. There were speeches by Hartman, Becker, Scherer, Phil Schneider ahd others, but the best was by ZImmerer himself to tbe effect that he was working to make the visit to Washington a success, and he wanted to see enough money raised to send all the comrades there. A right genuine companionable feeling characterized the gathering, which lasted until a late hour. Col. mecmann post. On Wednesday night this post mustered two recruits. The selection of Koerner's Garden to hold tbe Camp Jackson celebration on May 8 was approved. Among visitors present were Col. Nelson Cole and Comrades Gandolf and Hamel of Blair Post, Chaplain Haggerty of Ransom Post and several comrades from Hussendeu-bel Post. By request Col. Cole installed Jerry Young as adjutant and Comrade Helnemann as sergeant-major. Tne Colonel complimented Commander Bleger most warmly on the remarkable record which the post had made in one short year. Chaplain Haggerty spoke at length In a similar strain and Gan-dolfo and Hammei Joined in the praise. THE DEPARTMENT OFFICERS. Louis Grund, Senior Vice-Commander, who has been prominently talked for Department Commander by the German posts of St. Louis and who seemed to be naturally In tbe line of promotion, has Informed his Hassendeubel friends that, owing to his business, he Is not a candidate for the office mentioned. This seems to leave a clear field for Judge Burton of Nevada, who will go Into the Encampment with practically the St. Louis vote, besides that of most of the country posts. At least at this writing, no other candidate has been so widely mentioned. Kansas City might have a show, but it is understood that that town will have two candidates. In case Judge Burton is elected Commander, St. Louis will make a strike for Senior Vice -Commander, and the boys will put up Frank M. Sterrett (this year commander cf Blair Post) with the idea of booming him into a department Commander next year. There is a good deal of talk toward making Comrade Menaugh, the Blair Post Chaplain, Department Chaplain at the Chllllcothe meeting. BT.AIR POST. On Monday night Blair Post mustered two good recruits, and received two applications. "We gather them In!" is the commentary of Quarter-master Drelfus. Great satisfaction was expressed over favorable reports concerning the prospects of the Lincoln celebration. Blair Post mourns the death of Comrade Eeorge A. Kramer tbe first for 1892. RANSOM PO8T. The receipts from the Clara Morris night at the Olympic were very satisfactory, in fact, exceeded expectations. The Washington fund gets the benefit of it. On Monday afternoon Ransom Poet assisted in the last rites over the remains of tbe Rev. Dr. B. St. James Fry, The dead comrade was for three years Chaplain of the Sixty-third Ohio Volunteer Infantry, which, with the TwePty"8eventn Thirty-ninth and Forty-third, contltuted the famous "Ohio Brigade," whose deeds of valor are a part of the Imperishable records of the Army of tbe Mississippi. Last night Ransom Post initiated "saluting the flag" as recommended by Gen. Palmer, Commander-in-Chief. The ceremony greatly impressed the boys, and they wondered no one had thought of It before. There were several musters. A paper by Commodore Hodges was announced. It proved to be a poetical account ? r.tbe encounter of David and Goliath as re-latea by an Irishman and was a side-splitting performance, and Hodges was the idol of the evening. . SONS OF VBTERAN8.
