round, of what was to havo boon a
twenty-round struggle, Huhllu wilted
and then surrendered to his peer to the
utter amazement and disgust of the as
sembled thousands. No one wns more
surprised at the outcome than Jeffries
himself, who asserted that while he
had delivered one telling blow in the
second round,did not expect to win the
victory so easily. lluhliu's sole expla
nation of the outcome of the fight is
that he received a chance blow which
utterly disabled him and that Jeffries
persisted in fighting him low.

The smallpox scare which certain
parties in the vicinity of Homer, Da

commissioner of Indian affairs believe
to be a serious matter, has lost some of
Its significance. Senator Dietrich,
upon tint lequest of Honierltes. pre

of the roving Ouialin and Winnebago
Indians, who were smallpox convales
cents or had become infected. The

a view to raising thn desired quaran

the Indian office counter petitions and
remonstrances. by mcrcluuitsof Homer,
stating that smallpox among the In

w est h Marvel In Western
With the dawn of W0') the Chicago,
Hock Island & Pacific will open Its new
line to Texas and the great South nud
This new line is tin extension of the
branch of the Hock Island, extending
to Liberal, in the southwest corner of
Knnsns. Tne extension from Liberal
runs in nn almost straight line to El
Paso, Texas, the terminus. The dis
tance from Liberal to El Pnso is 45'J
miles. A remarkable piece of railroad
construction is to be found on this ex
tension, being a perfectly straight
piece of track, without a curve, for the
distance of V-ii miles, thus becoming
tliclongCit plow of straight track In
With the completion of tills new ex
tension, the Hock Island will become a
greater and more potent factor in the
railroad world. It will not foly ndd
ninny miles to its already largo mile
age, but It will give to the Hock Island
the, "Short. Line," over its own tracks,
from Chicago to El Paso, Texas, nnd
with the connecting lines nt El Paso,
will become the "Short Line" between
Kansas City and the Pacific Coast, as
well as between Chicago and tunny
important points In Texas and Mexico.
At the present time two gangs, com
prising several hundred men and teams,
arc working with all posslblu speed to
ward each other from either end of the
route. Those on the north have about
seventy-five miles further to go before
reaching Santa Hosa, the meeting
' point; while those building northward
from El Paso arc nearer by some few
miles to the goal. It is expected that
they will meet each other during tho
latter part of December of this year,
and whnt time rcinnins of 1001 will bo
niployed In putting on thu finishing
touches to this imtnenso extension,
which will mnke the Great Hock Island

West and the South.
NEW GUN A FAILURE
Falls to Do What tho Intentor Claimed
The test of tho Gathmnnn gun nnd
shell took plnco November 15 at the
nrmy proving ground on Sandy Hook,
Now York, anil resulted in a failure.
The shell did no material damago to
tho target. Thu failuro of Inventor
Gathmnun's theory Is ascribed by him
to an imperfect detonation of the fuse
in the interior of the shell. The' army
officers, however, claim that they have
found convincing proof to the contrary
and say that everything in connection
with the test was ns perfect as it was
possible to make it in accordance with
tho inventor's ideas. Tho board has
decided to give a second trial ,to which
the inventor is entitled. Tho second
Gathman shell for the test will bo over
hauled in tho presence of Mr. Gath
man for the purpose of guarding
against imperfections. On tho other
hand tho test made later with tho reg
ulation gun was n complete success.
