A Small but Appreciative Au
dience Greet the Far
Famed Sluggers.
Contrary to the expectation of a
majority of the Omaha sports , the
celebrated sluggers , Mace and Slado ,
came in over the Union Pacific yester
day afternoon and wont immediately
to the Paxton. Of eonrso every one
knows that Mace is an old rounder ,
ho having been the "world's cham
pion" Bomo ten or twelve years ago ,
Ho went to Australia about eight
years ago , since which time hia name
has bnoti comparatively unknown in
pugilistic circles in this country.
The reoont enconntor between Snl
llvan and Paddy Ryan has given an
opportunity for all the ox-charapiont
cf the world tocomoout of their hold
and contest cither by word of mouth
or by hlppodromatio subterfuges the
world-widu ruputation of the now
world-known Sullivan.
The citizens of Omaha were ap >

streets in a wogon drawn by eight
The public , or at lcnt that portion
of it which ventured upon the atroot ,
were thua apprised that the slugger ; ,
after a tedious and weary delay ol
watching and willing by the peoploj
were in our midst.
The performance drew n largo and
enthusiastic audience to the Acadcraj
of Music and rather early iu the evening
ing a curious as well as intorcntoi
assemblage wan gathered together.
Shortly after ! ) o'clock a nowspapoi
man waa Been entering the ailoor
under the Academy with a rathoi
heavy and largo man , "That's Blade , '
said a by-stander , and upon Inquirj
it waa found tint It tua he. The re
porter followed him up the otaira intt
tbo show room. "I cun't nndcratam
this bloody country , " oaid Mr. Slado
with a atrong cockney accent , aa hi
ascended the atairway ; "it acorns t <
mo that everything is turned about. '
The variety show which precedet
the Hparring exhibition waa of tin
usual kind. A young lady well pow
dorcd up and with an artificially da
volopcd form came out and aan |
"When ohe H laid in the cold , colt

by singing uomo similar ballad. Dor
ing ttna entertaining performance th
reporter eought n private box whori
Mr. Mnco was found comfortably on
scntiBed bntwocn novoral of the per
formers , and other ladiea who ha <
added lustra to the occasion. MHO
la rather heavily built , about iivo fee
eleven inches tall , and weighing abou
200 p und ] . Ho ia 51 years old , am
until ho went out of the arena , stun
eight years ago , waa considered th
most scientific boxer , and the hardea
hlttor , in tht < United States or in th
world. Ho had Buvorul battles in thi
country and England , and came ou
victorious iu every ono of them , an
earned the championship of the worlc
Ho is bald on top of his head , and
heavy mnstaoha which shadows hi

which gives MACO the usual appeal

Herbert Slade , the alleged Auatn

"cocknoy" Englishman , imported fc
the purpose of putting money in hi
own and Maco'o pocket , la u wol
built man between 30 and 35 years <
ago. Ho stands about two inches ovc
BIX foot and weighs nearly 225 pound
Ho came in the box where Mace wi
and immediately entered into an an
mated conversation with ono of tt
female occupants of the box.
"How is it. Mr. Mace , that yc
have boon BO long on your way b
tweon San Fruiclaco and Ohicag
where yon were to moot yonr friom
Richard K Fox , and Sullivan ,
arrange for the fight between Slac

piled , "If 1 remember rightly It w
to-day. "
"Well , BB you are not there to-da
when do you expect to got there ? "
"Day after tomorrow at the d
thest. I shall not atop at any mo
placaa on the way. "
The reporter asked Mace about tl
encounter himself and Slado had h
in San Francisco and other place
During their itay in San Francis
they were thu guests of the Olynij
club , which ia uampouid of the pri
cipal sporting men of that city. Gt

Slade , and it waa aaid that the fc
mor was much too heavy for the i
ported fighter.
Mace said that ho thought Sla
waa much moro than a match for Rt
Insou , and he wes atitlsficd that to
impartial observer the fight , or ratl
the encounter , showed the forme
"Did you hoar that Tom Chandl
an ox-prizo tighter , said that SU
waa no good and never could be
match for Sullivan in a prize figb
asked the reporter.
Mace said ho had , but had placed
credit to the report.
Shortly before 12 o'clock an
tttcho of the ahow walked upon '
stage and aald : "Gentlemen , I hi
A. the pleasure of introducing to you I
Join Mace , who for 40 yearn has b
A.ho the chief tighter of the world ,
ho wears the champion gold belt of
lie world , " and hero the follow dangle
ins bell in his handa as if in corroborat
ire of what ho aaid , "and aho anot
m. worth 100. "
The two thumpers walked dainl
on the atago nnd after n fjw scionl
subterfuges commenced to pasta c
other about the head aud breasl
md royal stylo. Slado reached for M
first and got in a sounder on the
ter'a This seemed to
mug amuse
latter and ho plugged the Austral
with u solid ono in the loft bro
KS From all appearances Maoo got
wont of the fust rouud and time
ft- called.
The SLCond round developed c
Biddable moro ability on the part of
both aa adepts in the manly art and
they both sent in the blows hot and
fast. Time was again called and Mace
trotted back to hia seat and Slado
smiled as if ho kuuw ho had the better
of the conflict. The third and last
round was a repetition of the fust
and second although in the wind up
Slado put in some rib ticklers which
evidently were not relished by the
champion. After a akirmi h of two
or three minutes the Utter called ont ,
"I have got enough , " and it was all
ovor.Tho men will loavp to-day for
Chicago where they will meet Fox ,
Sullivan and the other men to
arrange the fight between Slado aud
the now champion of the country.
It will bo remembered that on bia
roc ! nt visit to Omaha , Paddy Rjan
secured the services of "Baby"
Barnes , u well known Omaha boy , to
travel with him in the east , and that
ho is making a aUr slugger of him

dinary ireik ot iiaturo , or what
ponrs to bo such , will take place
uvoniu < j ! at the Hash Medical cell
Some tlmo nqo u mulatto natned _
dcrvrood arrived hero from Michif
and it BOOH became known that
IE claimed to bo able to produce fUmi
h breathing upon combustible art !
This power , It was said , he had alv
possessed , and that the fact was
known to lib associates. A
Cromley , residing at 242 West
Bnren street , became interested
the man , and after satisfying bin
that ho could , to all seeming ,
do what was claimed , had
him examined by medical men
with the object of ascertaining whether
the 11 imo was , as Ondorwood himself
insisted , produced by the breath or
by artificial and cunningly coucnalod
means. So far as the teats nave ponu
they have failed to domocstrato that
any fraud Is practised. Although
carefully watched , and BO situated
that deception would appear Impassi
ble , Underwood produces fiaruo at
will , llow it is done , or toi what peculiar
culiar condition of his organization hia
extraordinary power is duo , has not
boon explained. The test that will
take pinto this evening is designed
to bo more elaborate than any that
have preceded It. Underwood will
bo prepared for It by the phyeicians ,
who will adopt measures to effectually
neutralize the til'jot of any artifice before
fore allowing him to produce the
On Friday evening last Mr. Oaom-
ley took Underwood to the residence
of Mr. Eageuo IIowo , at 1149 Woat
Taylor street , where ho exhibited hie
strange faculty In the presence of a
few of the friends of the last named
gentleman. This fact balug made
clnown to The Herald , a roportoi
called on Mr. Howe last evening tc
learn what transacted.
"Mr. Coomloy is my uncle , " said
Mr. Howe to the reporter , "and he
brought the nian hero in order that
ho might exhibit htn powers. "
"What is your opinion of the thing'
Is there any trick ? "
"No , I don't think there can be. '
"What does he do ? Doea he produce -
duce an cctual Ihmo or is it a slon
combintion of the article ho sets or
fire ? '
"It is a real flimo a blaza. "
Mrs. Howe wan present , and at thli
stage she loft the parlcr , returning
a moment liter with part of a hand
kerchief , in which there were twc
holes that could have been producoc
by nothing but ihtno. The edges ol
these holes were surrounded will
black , charred linen , while furthei
away the fabric was scorched browr
as tf by the heat of the burning part
"Will you explain how Underwood
did this ? "
"Certainly. When our friends a *
rived ho took the handkerchit f am
hold it to his mouth for a while , ant
then the flame appeared. "
"Was its appearance instantaneous ,
or did it require uomo time to prcduci
the effect ? "
"Ho hold the handkerchief to hii
month for ono minute and twenty sec
ondo before it canght fire. "
"Did it seem to yon that any tffjrt
was necceesary ! "
"Yes , something of the kind. H
vras very much exhausted when h
got through. Ho says that ho neve
does it mote than once or twice in an ;
ono day , because it exhausts him a
much. "
"D'eu ho aay anything of auy otho
cff c ? "
"Ho complainn of n , pain in th
chrnt hero , " ( putting hfo lund on th
lower part of the cheat.
"Ho has always been able to d
th'a ' ! "
' YfB. But nobody thought it wa
anything but a trick. As he najf
people used to s y , 'it was a prett
clover trick for a darkey to do. ' H
is oaunxiona as anyone to know who
causer the phenomenon. "
"la ho a largo , muscular man ? "
"No , ho in not. Ho is not punj
but ulendor "
Mrs. Howe explained to the reporl
cr that the handkerchief was folde
eoveral times , so that there were fo\
oral thicknesses burned through. Th
greater part of it was torn up aud dii
tribnted among persons who wer
present at the teat. It was also stal
ed that Underwood's pnlso wan time
before the test and found to bobealln
at the rate of eighty pulsations to th
t minute. After the test It was sovont
to the minute , or ton boats slowo :
Mr. Howe added , however , that tl :
pulsations were counted immediate !
after the test , perhaps a minute olap
ing before it was dono.
