For the pn < t few days ( ho topic of cnn-

Nugcnt-Ktiith fight of a week ago. An-
oilier pugillpflf encounter has ju l taken
place which will doubtless furnish a
( homo equally interesting.

promptu , and grew out of n quarrel
which both men bad nt a caloon "open

emptory challenge was issued by Mur

cluded to nceet ] ) tlio challenge , and ( nicks
worn engaged for the whole party , in-
chilling MHno twelve or fifteen sporting
men who happened to bo present. The
party was driven out on Sherman ave
nue , beyond the city limits , where u level
miot was selected and u ring marked out ,
0. A. Smith , the pugilist , aetcd as "mas-
tor of ceremonies" and referee , superin
tending the ? details of tlio arrangements.
AltliotiK.lt the air was rather eliilly , the
men stripped to the waist and faced each
other. Murdoch was much taller and a
trillo heavier than his opponent , and
those circumstances , added to that of his
being a 'scientific ' sp.-irrcr , gave him
n ninrked advantage over Poland.
When time was called both men
advanced and shook hands. The round
opened with a emulous sparring for the
first moment or two. Then Murdoch
reached in and beating down the guard
of his opponent , commenced to rain in a
series of telling blown. Poland defended
himself as best bo could , and succeeded
in planting several stinging blows on the
phtz of his opponent , but it soon became.
ovidcut that ho was the weakest man of
the two. The round closed with some
vicious fehort-arm work , and Poland bu-
ing exhausted , rushed in and clinched
with Murdoch. Both fell , Murdoch on
SECOND ItOUNI ) .
The two men we ro at once separated.
and without waiting for the formality of
taking the customary two minutes' rest
they rushed at it , again. It was soon evi
dent that Poland was badly used up , nnd
that unless he .soon regained his wind be
would have to throw uu the sponge.
Murdoch commenced to press the light ,
and again beating down Poland's guard.
planted vicious right and left banders all
over bis face and body. Poland
made 'frantic endeavors to brace
himself and dealt Murdoch
one or two savngo cuts which , how
ever , failed to draw blood. The round
was closed by Murdoch's planting a ter-
rilie right bander on Pohind's ear which
almost throw nim from his feet lie fell
back exhausted nnd called for the refcreo
to close tbo fight , saj'ing that ho had
enough. The nye 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
ns a daisy , and hardly scratched.

Late Saturday afternoon n notice over

that dully work would be extended from
eight to nine hours , beginning each day
nt 7 n. m. instead of 8. a. m. as has been
the custom for the past two months.
An otlicial of the road was approached
on the subject and asked to explain its
"It means , " said he , "that the eight
hour system is played out so far as our
experience with it is concerned. Since
the reduction of time some several weeks
ago , the1 work of the chops has never
been thoroughly satisfactory. It has
actually occurred that wo have failed tote
to get eight hours' work out of the men ,
whether through intention on their part
or sheer inability J am not prepared
to way. Hut tlio fact is that
each day saw discrepancy and left over
odd jobbs which , in the course of the
week , accumulated to a formidable task ,
and demanded extra hours of work to
dispose of. "
The schedule of wages is the same , and
the men seemed pleated enough at the
rhango and the opportunities it oilers
for more earnings. Tim hours are now :
From 7 a. m to noon ; from 1 p. m. to 5

Mr. S. II. II. Clark , of thoOmaha Hell

porter for the ! : : yesterday and nsKed
itbout the proposed route of the lino.
The work of condemnation has been go
ing on rapidly for the ptist few \\ocks ,
and the land lias nearly all been secured
Mr. Clark bald , however , that until ( ho
right of way had been secured for the en
tire line , It would not do to make a de
tailed ( statement of the route. "For. "
said ho , "if F were to tell you exactly
how our line will cross such and such
points , the land in those places , which
wo" have not secured , would bu put up tea
a much higher price than we could in all
reason iillord to pay. "
Mr , Clark , however , gave the reporter
n general idea of the route of the line.
It will commence on the south line of
California street , limn run west t > uvcral
blocks until It htrikes Fifteenth strei < t.
On this thoroughfare it will continue
northward ifor n mile or M > , running
parallel with the line of the Northwest
era for hovcral blocks , and fhootiiig
westward when it reaches the fair
grounds , until it strikes the blutl'a. U
will then run -outh for about two miles ,
whentaking a southeastern course it w ill
trlko the stock yards. The entire length
of the Una will be tibout nine miles. ' 1 ho

The "kick" which the county democ

Mr. John O'Connell , a prominent third

A large delegation of property owners
on Leavenworth and College streets were
present at the city council chamber last
evening to meet the council committee
on grades and grading. Prominent in
the delegation were John T. Bell , C W.
Hamilton anil City Attorney Council ,
all heavy property owners on Leaven-
worth street. The gentlemen were pres
ent to consult with the committee in ref
erence to the established grade of Letiv-
enworth street between Twentieth and
Jacob. This grade , which was estab
lished by ordinance some three months
ago , bad not proved ( -atisfaetory to a
number of property owners on thntstrcct
and College street , some being dissatis-
lied because the street would be out too
much in front of their property , and
others becau&o it would be lined "in too
much. The deepest cut couti'tr.pHto.d in
the grade is thirteen feet , and at the in
tersection of Collesro i-trcet n 111 ! of
twenty-three feet would be necessary.
An outline of the strict bad been prepared -
pared by some of the members of the
delegation , showing the grade as estab
lished. Over it had been drawn n pro
file indicating a compromise grade which
some of the 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 series of .steep
rises and declivities. Mr. Hamilton , in
front of whoso property the street would
be cut away ten feet by ; the established
gradu , was in favor of the compromise
grade , which reduces the cut by several
feet.City Attorney Council , however , ex
pressed himself ns being in favor of oven
a more radical grade than ( ho estab
lished one. Ills property fronts the street
where both the deepest cuts and the
largest fills will be made , but ho consid
ered that the grade which would improve
the htreet the most , without reference to
tbij property abutting on it , was the one
which should be adopted. It would , in
the cud , he believed , result in
the value of the property , lie expressed
I ho belief that Leavenworth btrei-t , if
properly graded , will -shortly become
one of the leading MroeU of Omaha , be
ing to tiio southern part of the city what
( 'umiiig street is to tne northern part.
The committee took the matter under
advisement and will repoit their deliber
ations to the city council this evening.

"What this needs " said
city , MnrMiaj.
Cuminings to u reporter yesterday , "is a
largely increased police force. Wo have
now thirty men.which number Is entirely
lee small. Tlio force should consist of
at lea = t fifty men , and then it would bo
none too large. At present wo haVe not
men enough to patrol llio cityns it should
be patrolled , nnd il is a wonder that with
the small number of policemen we have ,
there is not more crime committed In the
highways nnd the bjwajs. "
Marshal Cuminings being pressed for
facls in support of bis statements , gave
the reporter Homo points concerning
Omaha's police force , Vthleh may not
prove uninteresting , especially as the
general public know nothing of llio men
who guard llio city's "homos and lire
sides , " and of the life they lead.
There arc at present thirty men on the
police force of lliis city. Of this mini
ber , one is sick , which leaves n force of
SO men for ncttinl duty. Of those ,
two ollieers urn detailed for jail duty ,
one in the day linn ; and one at night.
Then there is a man especially detailed
for "city business" to collect lines ,
licences , etc and one man assigned to
special court duty , who "calls court , "
serves subpunaes , etc. And , finally ,
there is one man who is known as tbo
olllcer-at-largc , who has the entire city
an his heal , and who is supposed to make
" " of the and
a general "round-up" tramiH
suspicious characters ho meets in his
This leaves twenty-four men for actual
duty on beats. Ten of thc > -c are assigned
to day work and fourteen to night duty.
Two of then- men are known as
roundsmen and are detailed to make a
general night and day "roundup" of thu
city , and to see that all the policemen
are not sleeping or loaling in saloons ,
and are otherwise strictly attending to
duty. The territory covered by tin so po
licemen extLiidd from Ninth street to
about Sixteenth street and Irom Loin en-
worth street to ( uminjr. A number of
policemen are compelled , under the pres
ent order of things , to patrol two and
even three streets , homo of them for a
distance of eight or ten blocks.
Twelve hours constitutes a day's work
for the members of the day force. They
go on their bents at 7 o'clock in the morn
ing and leave them at 7 o'clock iu the
evening , and go to roll-call at the police
court , when , alter that formality , they
give vui > to tin1 night men The "owls"
patrol their beats until 5 o'clock in the
morning , when they go to "early dawn
roll-calf , " and two policemen are son t
out to patrol the town on dogwatch ,
from .1 to 7 o'clock.
On the lirst of each month the nion arc
"changed around" that SM , the ni lit
men ex-change places with the day men.
This rotation is kept up the year around ,
and gives the men an equal taste of night
and day work.
MnrMinl Cummins * , of course , is the
executive bead of "the force , and from
him all orders emanate , though he , m
turn , is under orders from the major
He is assisted by Cant. Sullivan , who at
tends to the minor details , sees that all
orders are strictly executed , and acts as
n sort of general roundsman.
The general headquarters of the police
force arc tlio city jail. Here the orders
are issued every night at roll-call , and
here are kept tlio books containing the
descriptive circulars and rewards ( otlercd
tor the apprehension of thieves , murder
ers , and other criminals , etc ) . The
policemen nro required to look over these
descriptive circulars every night , so that
they can bo on the lookout for llio crimi
nals mimed tbcicin.
The salary of a policeman is $70 per
month. The captain receives $80 a
month and the marshal . ! , ( iOO a year.
Till : MA YOU THINKS < > , TOO.
Tn this connection the utterance -
anco of Mayor Boyd concerning a
needed increase in tlio number of men
on the force may be aptly quoted : "I
tell you now what 1 have often said be
fore that Iho present police force is too
small. It ought to consist of at
least lifty men. The present force
is cntirnly too small to guard thu oily
properly. And yet I don't see how we
can make the increase yet , bccnu-e there
is no ! the necessary money in the city

Mr. Io\d ! prefaced his remarks by de
claring lus heartfelt sympathy for the
movement iu the interest of Irish nation
ality as it was being conducted by Charles
Stewart Purnell. The .speaker declared
that the dimensions popularly believed
to be existing in Ireland are all m.\thicnL
and that religious elements and civil
factions of all Kinds were united at heart
in the aiUanecuicnt of Ireland's hopes ,
and that Pnrnell , although a reformer ,
had no stronger supporters than the
bi. hops of the Catholic church. He de-
lined the political situation in Ircl.im !
and stated that out of the 105 candidates
for parliament , Mr. Parnell hopes to
gain at least W of these. In the birth of
a new parly , great dilliculties are always
encountered , and thus the new part.v of
Irish nationality , in Mruirgling for a foot
hold. merits IheJ support of the true
patriot of every nation.
PKNAIOlt \ AN WVCK.
Prolonged npnlauso gieeted the intro
duction of Nebraska's senior senator.
He began by stating that 'the clVorls of
the oppressed against power , the weak
against the stronger , should enli t
tbc sympathy ot every American
citizen. He cited tliu discus
sion which arose in congress
twenty years ago , upon the right of an
individual to expatriate himself troni the
land of his nativity and adopt as his
home the nation of his choice. It was at
that time discovered that England denied
this right. Challenging the tyrannic
dogmas of the British go\ermin.'iH , con
gress ptibMHl the free land laws and
opened the gates of tlio land to the pil-
ofrim from every clime and nation. Eng
land's power is founded on her wealth.
Kich be.\ond conception , hui" money , ac
companied by her power , readies to
every corner of the globe , lie cited the
compulsory delivery of Kossuth from an
Austrian prison under stress of Ameiiea'd
threatening cannon , and declared that
the f 'n i ted Mates lias so inuuh submitted
to the power of Great Britain as never to
demand peremptorily the surrender of
lier detained oitixens. But Eng
land has shown' signs of weak
ening ; she but a. short time
since recoiled from impending contlict
witli Itussia and has ingloriously retired
from a disastrous war with the Arabs.
Die speaker reverted to the fact that
Irish soldiery had won England's great
est b.tttlcs and followed the drum-boat
if her conquests around the world.
While , said the speaker , we are looking
to the interests of liberty beyond the
seas , we have grave considerations at
land uion our own shores , for the holies
of the tuturc. depend upon the purity of
American institutions. He pointed out
that while Kiiglihh yeomanry is strug
gling from under the oppressions ot n
titled aristocracy , ( lie American people
were bitting supinely by while a iiccrngo
noru dangerous and formidable than
hat of Great Britain was growingnp
within the republic. So luhaueed is
hi ° rebellion of the British yeomanry
bat the day of Us liberation in not far
distant , anil its advent would bu attended
vith Iribh emancipation. He declared
hat England had the enmity of every
nition under the aim and recited the oc
casions upon which Mio ha.s shown her
instility to America. Further wrongs
she has done nslio ; did u > wrong when
site hurried Irish American citi/.ciis into
ler dungeons ; .she did us wrong when
she assisted ( lie enemies of America to
lestroy this country. She has cruelly
mprcssed Ireland , taunted the Irish peo-
) lo with vain promises , rubbed them of
s\cn their subsistence and cheated them
lersislontly of their God-given rights.
[ 'he American citinen is entitled to
lAaomblu lor popular declarations of
sympathy for a libcrty-Htrngglingland ,
mil Mich a meeting as this ono was per-
cclly compatible witli the home duties
if American citi/.ens.
TlitsspunkiT said that he was sometimes
censured lor remarks alleged to favor
certain parties , but had on tnis occasion
aid nothing to which exception could bo
alvcn , as ho bad meiely repealed his
itteninceh of twenty jcurn ago. In proof
> l tliis he read from n congressional
vport a portion of a resolution deiioiinc-
ng England for the sei/.uro of Mason and
jlnlell and oilier Ann ricnn citi/eim.
'rom tins sami ! document lie quoted the
ligh disliiution which Irishmen have
von in all parts of the world , and the
glories of Ireland's arms , which con-
jluded in a splendid panegyric upon the
tame of Hie great Celtic nation and her

ary of the Irish Land League , with a

the wrongs of Ireland , denounced tlio

U is us much the right of Ireland to take
independence from English tyranny as It
was the right of America , and ii.s'muoh
Ireland's prerogative to win that eman

sons that their brothers at homo are in

which it would be better to see them , but

speaker painted the martyrdoms of Ire

"peakerconcluded w ith : i spirited declar
