A Snvngo Encounter.
For tlio pu t few days the topic of con
versation In sporting eireles 1ms boon tlio
Nugenl-Kolth light of a week ago. An-
otlicr pugilistic encounter has just laken
place which will ilonbtliyjs furnish u
theme equally interesting.
Early Sunday morning occurred onn
of the moat hotly contested , nlbolt
promptly wouiul uji , prl/.o lights over
neon In this city. The principals were
" /eke" Murdoch , a well-known gambler ,
recently arrived IUTU fioin Davenport ,
Jown , niul Hobert Poland , nliiiH "Windy
Hob , " an equally well-known "mini of
llio . ' " ' The nflair
town. was entirely tin-
proinptn , iintl grew out of n quarrel
'which both men had nt a saloon "open-
ing" on Kifteonlb Mrcet. A per
emptory elmllonge was issued by Mur
doch lo sol tie thu nfl'air in a
ring outside of the city , where police in
terference would be Impossible. 1'olund ,
who \ apll.v styled "Windy , " linully con
cluded to accept thochallenge , aiidnncks
wore engaged for the whole party , in
cluding some twelve or llfleen sporting
men who buppened to bo present. The
party was driven out on blierman ave
nue , beyond the city limits , where ti level
Btwt was selected and a ring marked out.
0. A , Smith , the pugilist , acted as "nuts-
tor of ceremonies" and referee , superm-
tending Ilia details of the arrangements.
Although the air was rather chilly , the
men htrippod to the waist and fiieou each
olhcr. Murdoch was much taller and a
trillo heavier than his opponent , and
these circumstances , added to that of his
being n 'scientific ' npnrrcr , gave him
n marked advantage over Poland.
When time was called both men
advanced and shook hands. The round
opened with a cautious sparring for the
first inomont or two. Then Murdoch
reached in and beating down the guard
of his opponent , commenced to rain in a
BericB of telling blown. Poland defended
himself as best ho could , and succeeded
in planting several stinging blows on the
phiz of his opponent , but it soon became
evident that ho was the weakest man of
the two. The round clo.ied with some
vicious short-arm work , and Poland be
ing exhausted , rushed in ami clinched
with Murdoch. Both fell , Murdoch on
The two men were at once separated.
and without waiting for the formality of
taking the customary two minutes' ri"-t
they nished at it again. It was soon evi
dent ( hat Poland was badly used up , and
that unless he soon regained his wind he
would have to throw u the sponge.
Murdoch commenced to press the light ,
nnd again beating down Poland's guard ,
planted vicious right and left hanuers all
over his face and body. Poland
made 'frantic endeavors to brace
himself and dealt Murdoch
one or two savage cuts which , how
ever , failed to draw blood. The round
was closed by Murdoch's planting a tor-
ritie right hander on Poland's car which
almost throw nim from his feet lie fell
back exhausted nnd called for the refcreo
to close tlio light , saying that ho had
enough. The t\yo men were then told to
shake hands which they did very reluct
antly. Poland was covered with blood ,
and the short round and a half had quite
evidently used him up pretty thoroughly.
Murdoch , on the other hand , was as fresh
as a daisy , and hardly scratched.

Late Saturday afternoon a notice over
tbc hand of General Superintendent
Smith , was posted through the various
departments of tlio shops , to the effect
that daily work would be extended from
eight to nine hours , beginning each day
at 7 a. m. instead of 8 , a. m. as lias been
the custom for the past two months.
An oll'icial of the road was approached
on the subject and asked to explain its
"It means , " said he , "that the eight
honr system is played out so far as our
experience w itfi it is concerned. Since
the reduction of time some several weeks
ago , the1 work of the shops has never
been thoroughly satisfactory. It has
actually oucurred that we have failed tote
to got eight hours' work out of the men ,
whether through intention on their part
or sheer inability I am not prepared
to say. Kut the fact is that
each day saw discrepancy and left over
odd jobbs which , in tins course of the
week , accumulated to a formidable task ,
and demanded c.\tra hours of work to
dispose of , "
The schedule of wages is the same , and
the men Deemed pleased enough at the
change and the opportunities It offers
for more earnings. The hours are now :
From 7 a. m. to noon ; from 1 p. m. to 5

THE 11KI.T UNI ! .
Mr. S. II. II. Clark , of the Omaha Belt
Line railway was approached by a reporter -
porter for the BII : ; yesterday and asked
itbout tliu proposed route of the linn.
The work 01 condemnation has been go
ing.on rapidly for tlio pt few weeks ,
and the landnas nearly all been secured
Mr , Clark said , however , that until the
right of way had been secured for the en
tire line , it would not do to make a de
tailed htalemont of the route. "For. "
B.iid ho , "if I were to tell you exactly
how our line will cross mich and Mich
points , thu land in tlio'-o places , which
wo"have not secured , would ho put up teA
A much higher price than wo could in all
reason allord to pay. "
Mr. Clark , however , gave the reporter
n general idea of the route of the line.
It will commence on tlio south line of
California street , limn run we.st several
blocks until It strikes Fifteenth street.
On this thoroughfare it will continue
northward ifor a mile or ho , running
parallel with the line of the Northwest

westward when it reaches the fair
grounds , until it strikes tlio blull'a. It
will then run -outh for about two miles

which awaits that ticket. "
The "kick" which the county democ
racy is making is of great vigor and dangerous
gerous to its interests" in the JSMIO of tlio
present campaign. A bolt is imminent.
Mr. John O'Connell , a prominent third
warder , has announced himself aa an independent -
dependent democratic candidate for

especially among the workingmen , and
will make a lively rustic for a lirst place.
Judsre D J. Sclden announces himself

judge says that "de boys" have had it
too much their own way and he proposes
personally to sustain his interests.
Under stress of much clcclioueering ,
Mr. P. Ford , the democratic candidate
for Micriir , has temporarily lost control
of his voice , and now goes about declar

Ijcavemvorth Street Grade.
A large delegation of properly owners
on Lcavenworth and College streets were
present at the city council chamber hint
evening to meet the council committee
on grades and grading. Prominent in
the delegation were John T. Bell , C W.
Hamilton and City Attorney Council ,
all heavy property owners on Lcaven
worth street. I'ho gentlemen were pres
ent to consult with the committee in ref
erence to the established grade of Leav-
enworth street between Twentieth and
Jacob. This grade , which was estab
lished by ordinance some three months
ago , had not proved satisfactory to a
number of property owners on that street
and College street , some being dissatis
fied because tlio street would bo cut too
much in front of their property , and
others because it would bo filled in too
much. The deepest cut contemplated in
the grade is thirteen feet , and at the in
tersection of Colleire street a fill of
twenty-three feet would be necessary.
An outline of the pi reel had been pre
pared by some of the members of the
delegation , allowing the grade as estab
lished. Over it had been drawn a pro
file indicating a compromise grade which
some of tlie members of the delegation
favored. The latter grade reduced both
the cuts and fillings contemplated in the
established grades , but , if adopted ,
would make the street a scries of steep
rises and declivities. Mr. Hamilton , in
front of whoso property the street would
be cut away ten feet by the established
grade , was > in favor of the compromise
grade , which reduces the cut by several
feet.City Attorney Connell , however , ex
pressed himself as being in favor of even
a more radical grade than the estab
lished one. His property fronts ( he street
where both Ihe deepest cuts and die
largest fills will bo made , but ho consid
ered that the grade which would improve
the street the most , without reference lethe
the property abutting on it , was tlio one
which should bo adopted. It would , iu
the end , he believed , result in increasing
the value of the property. He expressed
I ho belief that Leuvenwortli street , if
properly graded , will .shortly become
one of tlie leading streets of Omaha , be
ing to the southern part of the eily what
Ciiming street is to the northern part.
The committee took the mailer under
advisement and will repoit their deliber
ations to the city council this evening.
The winter amusements have set in at
Fort Omaha , m the shape of private
theatricals , there being a representation
on Thursday eu'iiing , Oct. 211th , of "My

is "Havrosae , " one of Napoleon's old

The Patrol AViiKOll.
"What this city needs , " said MnHmi
Jtinimiugs to a reporter yesterday , "is a
argely increased police force. Wo have
low thirty nien.wlilch number Is entirely
oo small. The force should consist of
it leact fifty men , and then it would bo
lone too large. At present we UaVo not
nen enough to patrol the city as it should
> c patrolled , and it is a wonder that with
.he small number of policemen we have ,
.hero is not moro crime committed in the
lighuajs and the bjways. "
Marshal Cummiiigs being preyed for
'acts in support of his statements , gave
.lie reporter some polnto concerning
Dmaha's police force , which may not
> rovc uninteresting , especially as the
general public know nothing of the men
.vim . guard the city's "homes and lire-
sides , " and of the life they lead.
There are at present thirty men on the
police force of this city. Of this mini-
Lier , one is sick , which leaves a force of
men for nctual duty. Of these ,
Lwo ollleers are detailed for jail duty ,
ono in the day thin- and one at night.
Then there is n man especially detailed
for "eily business" to collect , lines ,
licenM'x , etc and ono man assigned to
special court duty , who "calls court , "
serves &ubpicnac , etc. And , finally ,
there is one man who is known as the
olllcur-at-largc , w ho has the entire city
as his beat , and who is supposed to inaKo
" " of the and
a general "round-up" tramps
suspicious characters he meets in his
This leaves twenty-four men for actual
duty on beats. Ten of thi"-c are aligned
lo day work and fourteen to night duty.
Two of these men are Known as
rouncNmim and are detailed to make a
general night and day "roundup" of the
city , and to see that all tlio policemen
are not sleeping or loafmg in saloons ,
and ure othenviuo strictly attending to
duty. The territory covered by these po
licemen cstt ndd from Ninth street lo
about Sixteenth street and Irom Leaven-
worth treet to ( uming. A number of
policemen are compelled , under the pres
ent order of things , to patrol two and
even three .trrels , some of them for a
distance of eight or ti'ii blocks.
Twelve hours constitutes a day's work
for the member * of the day force. They
go on their beats at 7 o'clock in the morn
ing and leave them at 7 o'clock in the
evening , and go to roll-call at the police
court , when , alter that formality , they
give waj to the night men The "owls"
patrol their beats until 5 o'clock in tlio
morning , when they go to "curly dawn
roll-call , " and two policemen are sent
out to patrol the town on dogwatch ,
from 5 to 7 o'clock.
On the first of each month the men are
"changed around" that in , the night
men exchange places with the day men.
This lotation is tapt up the year around ,
and gives the men an equal taste of night
and day work.
Marshal Cummins- * course , is the
executive head of the force , and from
him all orders emanate , though he , in
turn , is under orders from the major
lie is assisted by Cant. Sullivan , who at
tends to the minor details , sees that all
orders are strictly executed , and acts as
a sort of general roundsman.
The general headquarters of the police
force are the city jail. Here the orders
are issued every night at roll-call , and
here are kept the books containing the
descriptive circulars and rewards ( ottered
for the apprehension of thieves , murder
ers , and oilier c.rimiuaLs , etc ) . The
policemen are required to look over these
descriptive circulars every night , so tluit
they can bo on tlie lookout for the crimi
nals named thciein.
The salary of a policeman is ? 70 per
month. The captain receives $80 a
month and the marshal $1,000 a year.

Tit this connection the utterance -
anco of Mayor lioyd concerning a
needed increase in the number ot men
on the force may be aptly quoted : "I
tell you now what 1 have often said be
fore that Uio present police force is too
small. It ought to consist of at
least fifty men. The present force
is entirely too small lo guard the city
properly. And yet I don't see how we
can make the increase yet , because there

HON. .TAMI-.S t : . liovn.
Mr. Boyil prefaced his remarks by de
claring Ins heartfelt sympathy for tihe
movement in the interest of Irish nation
ality as it wasbuing conducted by Charles
Stewart Parnell. The speaker decjared
thai the distensions popularly believed
to be existing in Ireland are all mythical ,
and that religious elements ami civil
factions of all Kinds were united at heart
in the aihaiieenient of Ireland's hopes ,
and that Parnell , although a reformer ,
had no stronger supporters than the
hi-hops ot the. Catholic church , lie de
fined the political situation in Ireland
and stated thai oul of Ihe 105 candidates
for parliament , Mr. Parnell hopes to
gain at least fed of these. In the birth of
a new parly , great dilliciillics are always
encountered , and thus the new party of
Irish nationality , in struggling for a foot
hold , merits thej .support of Ihe trim
patriot of e\cry nation.
sr.NA'IOH ' \ AN WVfK.
Prolonged applause greeted the intro
duction of Nebraska's senior senator.
He began by staling that 'the eiVorts of
the oppressed against power , the weak
against the stronger , should enlist
Ihe .sympathy ol every American
citizen. Ho cited tlte discus
sion which arosi ) in congress
twenty years ago , upon the right of an
individual to expatriate himself Irom tlie
laud of his nativity iind adopt as his
homo the nation ol his choice. It was at
that time discovered tlmtKngland denied
this right. Challenging the tyrannic
dogmas of Ihe British go\ eminent , con
gress passed the free land laws and
opened the gates of the lanil to the pil
grim from every clime and nation. Kng-
hind's power is founded on her wealth.
Kich beyond conception , her money , ac
companied by her power , reaches to
every corner of the globe , lie cited the
compulsory delivery of Kossuth from an
Austrian prison under stress of America'd
threatening cannon , and declared that
the fe'nited States has so much submitted
to Ihe power of Great Britain us never to
demand peremptorily the surrender of
her detained eiliwus. But Kng-
land has shown' signs of weak
ening ; she but a short time
since recoiled from impending conflict
with Russia and has ingloriously retired
from a disastrous war with the Arabs.
This speaker reverted lo the fact that
Irish soldiery had won Kngland's great
est battles and followed the drum-beat
of her conquests around the world.
While , said the speaker , we are looking
to the interests of liberty bo.yond the
seas , we have grave considerations at
hand upon our own shores , for the hopes
of the future depend upon the purity of
American institutions. He pointed out
that while Knglish yeomanry is strug
gling from under the oppressions ot a
tilled aristocracy , the American people
were sitting supinely by while a peerage
moro dangerous and formidable than
that of Great Britain was growing up
within the republic. So adxaneed is
thi" rebellion of the British yeomanry
that Ihe day of its liberation is not far
distant , anil its advent would be attended
with Irish emancipation. He declared
that England had Iho enmity of every
nation under the aim and recited the oc
casions upon which she has shown her
hostility to America. Further wrongs
she has done us-ho ; did u- . wrong when
she hurried Irish American cili/.eiis into
her dungeons ; she did us wrong when
she assisted the enemies of America to
destroy this country. She bus cruelly
oppressed Ireland , taunted the Irish people
ple with vain promises , robbed them of
even their subsistence and cheated them
persistently of their God-givei rights.
The American citixen is entitled to
assemble lor popular declarations of
sympathy for a. liberly-Htruggling land ,
and such : i meeting art this ono was per
fectly compatible with the homo duties
of American citizens.
The speaker said that lie was sometimes
censured for remarks alleged to l'a\or
certain parties , but had on this occasion
said nothing lo which exception could betaken
taken , as lie had meicly repeated bis
utterances of twenty jeiirs ago. In proof
of ( his ho read from a congressional
report a portion of a resolution denounc
ing Kntrhind for the nci/.uro of Mason and
Slulell and other Ann ricun citi/cns.
From tlio sanio document ho quoted the
high disliiulion which Irishmen have
won in all parN of llio world , and tlio
glories of Ireland'H arms , which con-
eluded in 'i splendid panegyric upon llio
naiiiu of Ihe great Collie nation and her
sons.Wo have learned , ho resumed , th.it
there are things dcarur to tin than lilo.
It is national liberty , and for this boon
the greatest and purest of'tho iiaines of
those on the pagen of history have yielded
their livos. A nation , he said , that would
take the lite of Mirli a man should he
branded with an cAerlaslinj * c-nr-i' , and
concluding by declaring that Uio limo Is
not far distant , within Ihe limits cet by
tlio dying patriot himself , when Ilobcrt
ICmiTiDli's epitaph will be written.
HON. rilOJIAS KKI.N.SAN.
Hon. Thomas Brcnnun , former secre
tary of ( lie Irish Land League , with a
brief but eloquent prelude , moved Iho
adoption ot the resolutions. He thanked
Senator VnnWyck und rrmarked on the
singular propriety of such a step on the
pint of the soiiator , us the occasion was
out ! peculiarly in Inumony with the
measures which have made public lh
name of Chas. VnnW.vk lint &truggl
of industry ngaiimt idleness , liberty
a Hint I oppression. Ireland said he , is
as worthy to daj of din fundamental
rlghu. of dm mvat Declaration as is
America. But England never weares of
defaming the fair nunio of Ireland , and
her lying enemies are scattered every
where nom Washington to the Vatican.
Common sento , Juwe\er , will reveal the
spirit of Ibis insidious malignity. Ire-
luiul does not appeal to auppoit.as the

Ireland does not remind America Ihnl
ICiigland has waged persistent war
fare against thn safety of the govern
ment and that the In st blood of Ireland
has been shed to preserve it. He recited
the wrongs of Ireland , denounced the
lories and launched Miialliumas ut Glad
stone , Bright , Chamberlain and Dilke.
It is us much the right of Ireland to lake
independence from Knglish tyranny as It
was the right of America , and ns'iiuioh
Ireland's prerogative to win thai eman
cipation by the snue means as did Amer
ica , if she were able. Ireland does not
beg , hut is appealiu ' lo her expatriated
sons that their brothers at homo are in
the thick of the light-not that light in
which it would be heller toee them , but
the only struggle which they are able lo
make. With wouls of passionate tire , the
speaker painted the martyrdoms of Ire
land , and invoked the sympathy of Iho
audience in Ihe sit ps which that laud ie
taking for vcngeame. Not for arms
does Ireland u k Ameiiea. but , nn did the
continental eongn s > , in dm dark days of
( he revolution send lratern.il greotingn to
the Irish people , M > docs Ireland today
appeal to America for all the aid , moral
and material , that is possible to all'ord.
Iiclaml will ne\er rest content until llio
gra.sp of monarchy is taken frou
her. Already Kn'gland sees the
handwriting on the wall , and in
stead of the " "
"Iiiipos-ihio" answer ,
of some months ago , Iho query comcii ,
"Will jou promise lo ask. lor no more
than home nileV" 'I ho speaker quoted
Mr. Parnell's patriotic ieplto this ma ; . ,
tion , refusing to engage himself to liind
the people or place him-i-lf as a slumb
ling block to a nation's progress. The
"peakereoneluded w itli : i spirited declar
ation , that if Knghni't ' refuses to grant
the last demands of Ireland , Iho entire
world of Irishmen will uiiile themselves
in one terrible but righteous conspiracy
to attain the hopes of liberty.
HON. JOHN 1WKIlsrnit. .
Hon. John L. Webster opened by do-
elaring himself as an American selected
for this occasion to express , merely , the
opinion of an American upon tho'nlrng-
} ilo of Ireland for independence He
h-iid lhat in btud.ting the physical ami
political location of Ireland upon the
map of the globe he wondered how she
had been robbed of die molit.s of her
commercial ad\anlagi s. ho referred to
the crippled condition of Irish trade and
manufacture , and declared it due to Kn
glish misrule. Ireland'd hole salvation
is to be in emancipation from British
control. In words of burning oloqucnco
the speaker vindicated the rightof Amer
ica to participate in the concerns of llio
Irish people and a sist her to the perfect
realization of her hopes.
