presented a pleasing program consisting
of music and recitations. The produc

well rendered throughout. The fact
that all the parts were well taken ren

rule.? have been made, and in what cases
and for what reasons.

Washington, July 29. About 85 per
cent, of the populations for the entire
country have been received at the cen
sus bureau, and Superintendent Porter
hopes, with the present rate of counting,
to have the rough estimate of the popu
lation of the country ready in a tew
weeks. While the energies of the of
fice are being pushed toward securing
the result of the count of the people,
other mauines connected with the cen
sus are also being pushed forward, and
Superintendent Porter hopes witnin a
week to begin the publication of bulle
tins giving the results of these special
inquiniis. To show how well m hand
the census work is, compared with ten
years ago. Superintendent Porter states
that about tnis time ten years ao, as
chief of the division of wealth, debt
and taxation, he was just putting out
the schedules: while now the office is
getting ready to announce the results of
this inquiry. Bulletins will also soon
be issued giving the bonded indebted
ness of 858 cities now and in 1880; and
statistics of state production, of insur
ance and on street railroads.

Washington, July 29. Miss Lillie
B. Porter, daughter of Wm. D. Porter,
and grand neice of Admiral Porter, of
the United States navy, disappeared
from home, 106 Sixth street northeast,
last Saturday morning. In the even
ing her parents received a note from
her saying she was married and that
she had gone to Chicago with her hus

she was married in June secretly to a
young man named O'Brien, at one time
clerk in a hotel here. In her note to
her parents Miss Porter did not mention
her husband's name.
Washington, July 9. It is under
stood that Speaker Reed has determined,
as soon as the minority show a disposi
tion to obstruct legislation or demand a
quorum for transaction of business, to
summon all the members to their seats
and grant no leave of absence except on
account of sickness. Such action would
bo very hard on Republicans and Demo
crats alike, as there are many members
of each side absent.

Au I'nsllth Champion Itutlly rtiiiiiiieled
by mi A Itlrl 1 i'lif
New York, Julv 21). The fifteen
round go between Charley Smith, who
claims the featherweight fhampion.ship
of England, and Sim Collins of New
York, which has been a good deal ad
vertised during the hist three weeks,
was begun at Odd Fellows hall, IIo
boken, in the presence of a house full
of spectators. The men wore gloves
that weighed something less than tour
ounces. They bad trained systematic
ally for the l out, and were both in i;ood
form. Jimmy Carroll, the Brooklyn
middleweight, was one of Smith s sec
onds, and George Reynolds, the New
York liirhtweiirht. was anions those in
Collins' corner. Morris Lee was ref
eree. A large proportion of the crowd
was made up of Hebrews, who cheered
Smith at every opportunity. Ihe stakes
were f '250 a side, and the winner was to
receive Co per cent, of the Kate receipts,
The Enslihman had a idiade the
best of the first and second rounds,
but after that was scarcely in
it, except in one or two rallies,
He succeeded in knocking Collins down
twice with blows on the breast, but on
both occasions Collins, who is not a
clever sparrer, was caught with his feet
together. Collins assumed the aggres
sive nearly all the way through, and by
superior strengtn ana rusning tacuct
planted many severe blows on Smith 8
face and stomach. His upper-cuts
were particularly vicious, and in the
third, fourth and fifth rounds Smith
was saved from a knock-out only by the
call of time. It was hard fighting on
Collins part and a game showing by
Smith, who began his movements in
fancy style, but soon dropped all style
and got down to business in trying to
avoid the New Yorker's rushes. In the
middle of the eighth round, which was
not so severe as any of its iedecessors,
iust after Smith had landed a solid left
hander on Collins' breast, the police
lumped on the platform and forbade
the affair to continue. There had been
pretty good order in the nouse and the
action of the authorities was a com
plete surprise. The referee called the
match a draw.
The New Zealitnder Win.
New Orleans, July Arthur Up-

Fitzsimmons hd Upham at his mercy,
and the fight was a tame one. Upham
was game, but no match for t ltzsim-

the second round, but this Upham re

on the chin sent him to the floor and he

Twelve pi r.-oiis have boe.i taken to th

Ju.-.t how many people went over i:iti

witnesses of the disaster say that a
fjreat number of people men, women
and children were sitting on the star
board Bide when the crash occurred,
and immediately disappeared.
Not sinco the Tivoli disaster has such
a thing happened near this city. All
sorts of rumors aro afloat as to the num

thronged with anxious relatives and
friends of those reported missing. Just
who is to blame for the accident is not
known. Naturally the pilots of both
boats deny negligence.

Virginia, struck the starboard quarter
of the Louise about the after-gangway.
Ihe col ision nearly turned the Virginia
around, so great was the force. There
was no great excitement aboard our

When the collision occurred the people

the Virginia struck. I do not want to
cast any reflection on the captain of the
Louise, but I believe he wn wrong."
