On an Island in the Missouri Rivar , Twenty
Miles from Omaha.
A BLOODY TEN-ROUND CONTEST.
liitulsny Knocks Out Clarke The
of the Ijaw Unable to
Jntcrfero Several Arrests
SI ado In Omaha.
Yesterday morning at 8:30 : the steamer
J. M. Abbott loft her moorings at the
foot of Davenport street and steamed up
thu Missouri. She had on board about 100
excursionists , some of whom belonged in
Council 111 u Us. All were bcnton witness
A PKIKE FIOIIT
between Jim Lindsay and J. Clarko. The
principals were taken on board at dif
ferent places up tlio river. Ulnrko was
the victor in a fight held under similar
auspices about four weeks ago. He is
n man about twenty-five years of
ngo and weighs 150 pounds. Lindsay is
a hod-carrier , and is ton pounds lighter
than his antagonist. Refreshments were
supplied on the trip , and the excursion
ists wore not slow to avail themselves of
the accommodations. The drinks lost
none of their appetizing nature because
of the novelty of the circumstances under
which they wore served.
The progress of the boat against the
current was slow , and the trip would
have been tedious had not the stimulants
and some versatile spirits tended to
relieve the tedium of the ride.
As a consequence , it was not until
about 2 o'clock in the afternoon when the
boat reached a point about twenty miles
ui > the river. Hero
about two acres in extent was found , und
after some delay , the whole party went
nshore , while the boat \vas safely moored.
The contest was to bo according to the
MAUQUIS OK QOnCNSHUHY UULES ,
with two-ounco gloves , $75 for the win-
iier , nothing for tiie loser. But little
time was lost.
was pitched at the upper cud
of the ihlunil , on a spot whore the sun
had dried the quagmire into a linn ,
though somewhat dusty footing. Clarke
was the ( itst to appear , and ducked under
the ropes with a bashful sinilo , in recog
nition of tint small ovation granted him.
Lindsay followed promptly , and was
given a similarly generous greeting.
Both stripped well , neither seeming to
have the advantage in point ot training ,
although Clunfo overweighcd Lindsay
about eight pounds. Mcllcnry John
son , or the "Black Star. " as
this colored gentleman styles himself ,
wielded the sponge and gargling
bottle for his old-timo protege , Clarko.
Lindsay rejoiced m the skilled and nervy
backing of Tommy Miller , the feather-
weightand | Arthur llothery , the experi
enced groomsman of lighting flesh.
After some , little delay Henry Towns
was agreed upon as reiorco , while Jack
Nugent und Homer Kirko held the stop
watch. On the toss Clarke caught the
slightly disadvantageous corner facing
the sun , but was little handicapped by
the situation , as the wind , which swept
clouds of dust from the desert isle , blew
directly In the face of his opponent. As
nn evidence of self-coniidoiico , Clarke
Btopned across the ring and shook in
Lindsay's face a $5 bill , which was
promptly covered by the latter's friends.
The betting was spirited , with Clarke
Homowhat a favorite , but Kearney , the
White Elephant man , and ono or two
others grabbed everything that came
First round At the call of time , both
men bounded from their corners , Clarke
giving every evidence of determination
"to do or die , " while Lindsay wore a
pleasant air and executed a few song and
dance stops in the preliminary sparring ,
Suddenly Clarke led out with a body
blow which scraped a long red furrow
over Lindsay's ribs. The latter countered
with his loft aud followed it np with a
swinging back hand blow that earned
him tlio credit of the tlrst knock-down
and raised a welt on Clarke's cheek.
The remainder of the three minutes was
gponc at sparring.
Second rouni' Clarke came to the
Fcratch wide awake , but inclined to be
wary. Ho countered Lindsay's body-
Mow on the eye , inlllcting the merest
scratch. Moro cautious sparring con
sumed the round.
Third round If Clarke had been wary
before , ho was now certainly frightened ,
for ho put himself entirely on the defen
sive. After a few moments wasted in
tactics , Lindsay , made a rush , put in sev
eral swinging faeo blows , and sprang
back with blood stains on his gloves
while the rod streams which poured
from Clarke's nostrils gave Lindsay the
additional credit of first blood.
Fourth round Lindsay did nil the
lighting , thumping Clarke right
nnd left , winding up by spilling
Clarke into the dust for
the second time. The crowd was now
thoroughly satisfied of Lindsay's lighting
capacity and tlio general sympathy for
him was expressed in the words of en
couragement which went up from all
sides , despite the referee's endeavors to
Fifth round Lindsay once moro set In
whacking away at his larger antagonist ,
nnd thumping him at will until Clarke
tanzlcd himself up in his feet and fell 1
down , as time was called.
Sixth round Neither man was suffer
ing for wind , and Clarke evidently de
termined to overcome Ids fear ot active
bcrvico. Ho made ono wild swipe which
nearly upset him , as Lindsay ovadgd it ,
und then settled down to moro sparring.
Seventh Hound It was hero that
the excitement of the event got
in its first work. Clarke squirted
a jet of blood through his teeth ,
mopped some of the roil stains from his
nose with the back of his glove , nnd
sailed in with "now-or-novor"
a - - style ,
which deserved a better result. It was
tooth and toe-nail , hammer and tongs , for
u long time , until Lindsay got a da/er on
Clarke's forehead , followed by a smasn
In the cheek , which , for the fourth time ,
upset Mr. Clarko. A small row followed ,
us Clarke's friends , and especially Clarke
himself , claimed a foul , but nobody else
could see it , ami the mill ground on.
Eighth round Once moro Clarke en
deavored to do thn leading , and rushed
Lindsay into the corner upon thu
ropes , where they twice clinched ,
with some vicious short arm
chopping. Kadi time they wore torn
apart , and each time they renewed the
nsaauit savagely , until the'three minutes
Ninth round This consisted of moro
maneuvering , the men sparring more
for wind than for chances , although
neither of them seemed seriously out of
, breath. '
r"S It was in the tenth and last round that
both the gladiators went in to use ui >
their harbored energies for all that might
* coiuo ot it. It was pelt aud chug , thump
and smash around the narrow arena until
through n sudden rift in the cloud of dust
that enveloped the combatants , Clarke
was seen to stagger under a heavy left
hander in tlio jaw.
"Follow it up , " " ( Sivo it to him , "
shouted Lindsay's friends.
Ho was not slow in acting upon thcso
behests , and slntrllng out tlio touchy spot
under Clarke's right ear ho landed there
his t right with his whole weight behind
it. i Clarke dropped like a plank , while
the ' blood was gushing from his mouth
and nose , and although his friends and
backers put in the prescribed ten seconds
with words of encouragement ho was
not able to give any signs of life ,
When the boat returned to Omaha
about 0 o'clock lust evening. Chief of I'o-
lice Scavoy , with a squad of oflicors and
the police patrol , stood concealed behind
the carsready to welcome the excursion
ists when they were fairly landed. Jack
Nugent , Ed llothery , P. H. NelV , I ) . W.
Woymoiith and Lon George wore hustled
behind the bars on the charge of aiding
and abetting a pri/.e fight. But , on the
advlco of the county attorney and sheriff ,
they were discharged on the ground that
the light had taken place outside of the
jurisdiction of the Omaha polico.

"Well , all you people that want to and
can got tho'tip'before hand can attend
thcso prize lights , " said n well-known
society and business man yesterday , re
ferring to a prize light.
"I don't cnre to attend any moro , " ho
continued. "I went to the Fell-Hanloy
light , and of all the times I over experi
enced that was u thousand times the
worst. Why , you know what 'a small
space is under the car scats ? Well , I got
down under a scat and I tell you I re
mained ' there. Of all the things 1 over
read ' of nonu equaled that occa
sion. I was standing up near the
door of I the passenger coach when the
first thing I know , a gun went ofT right
beside my head. Everybody seemed to
have a revolver and all b3gan to bang
away at the same moment. A man I
should judge weitrhing 200 pounds made
a dive through tlio car window and es
caped. You can imagine how bad it
was , for a person to run such a risk as
that. I squeezed myself- under a car
seat and couldn't see what went
on after that. The passengers
piled out onto tlio engine and tender to
get away. The conductor was already
in the cab. When the train stopped each
man took to his heels. One car was lit
erally shot to pieces. If ono pri/e fight
isn't' enough for a man to see , I'll give
in. " - * * v
"I'd like to have boon ab.lo to have at
tended the light , to-dav , " said a Knight
of the green cloth yesterday afternoon ,
"but 1 didn't got up early cuotitrh. I saw
Jim Lindsay in Omaha , asleep at a table
last winter ono night , when ho was
waked up and put before a well trained
man and ho took his thumps in great
shape. It was the lirst light. Two men
had been announced to light in Clow's
place. Ono of them went back on his
word and some ono hud to cotno to time
to quiet the crowd. Lindsay was asked
if ho wanted to make some money. Ho
said 'yes , ' and they made him face a man
too much for him. Lindsay then went
into training. He's done up several since.
He's got lots of pluck and is a striker. "
Guarding Iowa Morality.
[ From Our Council lllJffa Correspondent. ]
For throe or four days past it had boon
known 1 among a select few that a prize
light i was to take place Sunday morning.
County Attorney Dailoy was aware of
the fact , as on Saturday it had been the
topic of the town , and little or no attempt
at secrecy was made. Tickets were on
sale at u number of places , and almost
anyone who Had $3 to give up for that
kind of sport had littleUllliculty in se
Saturday Chief of Police Sea-
voy , of Omaha , and County
Attorney Dailoy , of Council Blufl's ,
wore in telephonic communication and
they decided to sec that no infringement
of the law took place within their respect
ive jurisdiction. Colonel Dailey with
Sheriff Perry Heel and Deputy James
O'Noil carefully and quietly laid their
plans on Saturday evening about 7
o'clock , and the shorifl' wont to his homo.
At 5 o'clock Sunday morning Deputy
SlierilV O'Noil took n team and went to
Crescent City where he joined the shorifl' ,
uud a POSSOYiVS fQT.aisd. composed ot Ufty
Colonel Dailoy remained in Council
Blull's and awaited telephone message
from Omaha that the pruc-fightors , with
their friends , had loft the dock on the
steamer J. M. Abbott and started up the
river1. Ho then repaired to Dohany's
livery stable , It then being about 9 o'clock- ,
and getting on horseback , started for the
place of meeting the sheriff and his
posso. They Kept well back from the
river and patiently watched the steamer
Abbott , wliie'i ' had a barge in tow , and
also the steamer C. E. Mavno , which fol
lowed with loss than a dozen persons on
boani. The steamer went about
four miles above Florence , Nob. , when
those on board discovered the sheriff's
po so on the Iowa side.
It was probably tlio intention to land
near the mouth of the Boyer on the Iowa
side , but'tho appearance ot the sheriff's
armed guard no doubt changed their
plans. The boats then turned down
stream and landed at 2:15 : o'clock about a
mile south of Florence on an island on
the Nebraska side of the river. All
hands left the boats and went back from
shore where thu ring was pitched.
A messenger was than sent to this city.
Ho telephoned to tlio Omaha authorities
what had Happened , and the Omaha
chlof-of-polico stated that ho would at
tend to the excursionists upon their re
turn to that city.
In thu meantime the sheriff's posse re
mained at a point up thn river whore
they could watoli the movements of the
boats. The light , however , took place
without any interference from tlio au
thorities , who were unable to reach the
At 5.05 o'clock tno steamer Abbott
landed at Judson's sand bank , a little
over four miles north of Broadway , and
the six or sovim Council Bluffs men who
attended , left the barge , along with the
principals. They all walucd into town.
Shortly after they landed they saw thu
sherill s posse coming and the two
fighters , with the man who had them in
charge , hid for a short time , after which
they walked into the city , arriving shortly
The pugilists both occupied the same
room unducd in Council Bluffs last night
and seemingly neither of them were any
the worse oil'for their days recreation.
Shortly after the steamer had pulled
off , from the landing at the sand bank ,
a squad of Council Bluffs police reached
the river front in charge of
Chief Mullen , but all they
could do was to watch the boats make
their Omaha landing.
Of all the tired men in Pottawattamio
county last night it was Sheriff Heel's
posse , who patrolled the shores of Iowa
all day without n meal.
A Grand Showing or Rntrlca For the
Onmiug Races. ,
The school children will probably rejoice
that the fair association baa set apart one
special day for tUolr entertalutu'ont. 1'o.e
day has been set. It Is Tuesday , the second
day of the fair , nnd all the school children
will bo welcome. It Is possible that the
preachers may not be there In nil their glory
that day , although they have one and all ac
cepted the friendly Invitations of the associa
tion but enough of them will bo on hand to
make the occasion one of interest and value
to them all. Tlio volunteer firemen
from New York the gentlemen who
have amassed gray hairs nnd
wealth In equal proportions may not bo
there on that particular day , but they will bo
there all the same on the day appointed tor
their coming , and their coming wilt not bo In
yam. The veteran volunteers of Omaha will
bo there with tliolr guests , and the day will
bo ono of unalloyed pleasure. While the
school children may not , possibly , find the
same pleasure In the spurts to which more
mature minds are devoted , It Is possible ttiat
thn gentlemen ot the cloth may not be so in
different to an exhibition of honest sport
Without wishing to call their particular at
tention to the attrnctlons which the fair will
present , the attention ot the liorse-lovine
public may bo called to the magnificent list
of entries :

two games against Omaha to-day. In the
morning he pitched with such effect that he

the best records of ( he season. SUch's bat
ting In the forenoon was tcrrillc but ho could
do nothing In the afternoon. Omaha's Held

The record of Parisian crime was swollen
to day by another atrocious triple murder com
mitted within a stones throw of the Arc do
Triumph by an oculist named Padrona. This
morning botwcon 5 and 0 o'clock the tenants
of Rue do Brey where Padrona occupied
small apartments on the tlfth floor with his
young and delicate wife and three llttlo
children , were awakened by agoiil/od cries
and the sound of pistol shots. An alarm was
given but no one had the courage to outer , the
oculists ' apartment. While all of
the neighbors were huddled to
gether on the landing Padrona
suddenly darted out ot Ids door , dashed
down stairs brandishing a blood stained
Corslcan knife In his hand , and before he
could bo stopped took refuse In his cellar.
Presently ho reappeared with a bottle of
wlno anil this time the bystanders seized him
and handed hi mover to the police authorities.
On entoiliu his apartment a terrible sight
was seun. Mme. Pad ro lift lay on ho bed with
six bullet holes In her face and nock. In an
adjoining bod-room a little lad of two
lay on his cot with his head literally
severed from his body. Near
him was the body of his sister , Marie , with
her throat cut. Her baby hands were clasped
as though imploring her father to spare her.
Beside Madame Padrona , a baby three
months old lav peacefully sleeping , un
harmed. It Is supposed that after a auairol
with Ids wife. Padrona got out of bed , loaded
his revolver and shot her. Hearing what
was passing , the torrldod children began to
cry and thu murderer , seeing this , silt their
throats to sllonco them. Padrona , who
Is a Corslcan , was jealous , an Inveterate -
veterato smoker and an ab'lntho drinker.
He pretends ho killed his wife to avenge hlm-
srlffor her lulidellty. When arrested he
said , ' 'Lot iiu have drink before you take me
olt ; I am thirsty. " Since then his language
has boon Incoherent , whether ho Is mad or
shamming mad to save himself. Coming
in thu heels of the excitement about Plan-
/.I nl , this fresh crime made agieat sensation.
In Paris it is generally thought the result
will be to hasten Prauzlnl's execution.

LONDON , August 2S. [ Now York Horal d
Cable-Special to the BKK. ] "The Herald
has been at Portsmouth inquiring Into the
Chinese naval vessels there and would now
like some statistics touching lyour Japanese
naval nutters. " said I to the secretary o tha
Japanese legation in Us quarters In Cav
endish square. He was a hand
some gentleman of his typo and
spoke English as picturesquely as ho
was dressed. "Wo have forty vessels , twen
ty-seven of which are of the now style of
warships. Those vessels are manned by , all
told , 40,033 olllcers and men. All of them are
Japanese , no foreigners of any kind being
employed aboard. Our vessels are different
from the war ships of China inasmuch as
theirshlps are commanded by Englishmen.
The only Europeans we employ are from the
naval Instructors In our college. As to
dockyards , wo have throe stations , viz. : Sa-
soho , Kuro and GoKosuga , while two
moro are contemplating building
but the sites are not settled. These three
stations are also used as cooling depots and
victualling yards. We are so much progress
ing at the present time that live or sit years
hence we shall have quite a new navy to
what wo have now , and wo intend to keep
improving diy by day. At the present time
our naval attache , Toulon , superintending the
building of two now coist defence vessels
besides which we ourselves our bulldiiu
six cruisers at our own stockyards In Japan
This stop of Increasing our strength was
decided upon two years ago. Of course-
our navy Is Inferior in strength to China ,
but their country Is much larger and natu-
lally they requli o many moro vessels to guatd
It. Ono comparison we are proud of Is ,
whereas China has so many ships of war
they are compelled to employ foreigners to
build and command them , In our country wo
build and command them ourselves. The
question ot coast defense Is now the princi
pal topic of conversation m Japan and the
wealthy people of the country have volunta
rlly subscribed tliolr money for that purpose ,
In addition to which subscriptions our
government have within the last few months
Imposed a now tax. which they call an Income
tax. The proceeds at o going for naval and '
military purposes , Including the defense of
our coasts. The payment of this tax com
mences at 303 von , equal to the United States
dollar , and upwards. For JiOO yen the charge
Is 10 yon , and so on In the same proportion
until 1,003 yen aio retched , when the rate ot

Herald Cable-Special to the Bin : . | What
would an admiral only a quarter of a century
ago have thouzht of the phrase "Inspector of
the Chinese Squadron. " yet tills Is verilied to
day by the Inspection of the Chinese licet by
the Chinese minister to Germany , Tan
Chlng , who arrived for that purpose from
Berlin yosterctay.and was received by a salute
of seventeen guns , handled by Chinese gun
ners on board the Chls Yuan , King Yuan , Lai
Yuan and a torpedo boat. These are all to
sail for Chinese waters Auust 31. They have
remained hero In order that certain minor de
fects In the ships' littlngs may bo made good.
Advantage Is also being taken of the oppor
tunity ollered by allowing the oflicors and
mon of the Chinese Meet to visit the English
ships In the harbor and the dock yard. Ad
miral Lang will be In comnnnd until Taku Is
reached , when these new ships will
bo merged Into the existing Chi
nese lleot , under Flag Admiral
Ylng. Thecotnminderof the Clilnir Yuan
Is Capttln Yih. He has eleven English and
fourteen ChliH'so oltlcers , with a present
complement of 150 men. The Chls Yuan ,
has Captain Yang with nine English and fif
teen Chinese olllsars , and thn same comple
ment of men. Captain Lin Is on the Chlng
Yuan. What will bo the complements when
the ships reach Chinese waters has not yet
been determined , but they will certainly bo
more numerous thin at present. In fact , as
the captain of the Hag ship Chlng Yuan ° , wlth
evident pride over his excellent knowledge
of English , observed to the Herald , "These
present crows are only the working navi
gators to China. " Ho was much pleased with
( he attentions ho and his comrades and men
have received here and ho was especially
proud that wbjQn her majesty , left
Osborno on Wednesday evening for
Balmoral , the royal yacht was directed to
steam round the ships slowly so that the
queen might closely Inspect them. The launch
companies have run special excursions to
Splthi'iul , and when the occupants ot the
crowded decks have cheered at their lustiest
the Chinese olllcors have not been loss ready
to waive their handkerchiefs In reply , while
the men have grinned good naturedly as the
excursionists have stared wondering at the
cabalistic letters on the ships sides or at the
superbly gorgeous Chinese ensign. One such
party were atTorded great amusement yester
day at sight of four Chinamen swimming for
their lives. A Mat bottomed purt , shaped
much like a tub , was occupied by live
men who were painting the outside
of n flagship and as the tiny craft was
scarcely capable of holding moro than two
men , she was quickly submerged , Four sail
ors were soon ID the water , laughing and
struggling with each other till rescued by a
private boat , while the tilth man was drift
ing away In the punt. Ono Chinese sailor on
board rushed down the gangway , directing
the solitary occupant ot the punt how to es
cape , and tils Instructions were being fully
carried out when the luckless Instructor him
self fell Into the boat and drifted moro than
SOO yards before lie , too , was saved.
An unfortunate accident has befallen to
Mr. Charles May , the torpedolst who was
sent to the Chinese government as an
ofllcer Instructor. While he was teaching a
man how to stop shells the weight of thn
missile ho was handling proved too much for
him and caused him such Internal injuries
that the fleet will be obliged to fall without
The funeral of a Chinese sailor named ijln
Pin Lin , aged twenty-six , of llielal Ylian on
Friday attracted B good deal of attention at
Portsmouth , and though the ceremony was
performed so early as half past eight a. in. ,
before the cemetery was reached Mr. R. W.
Bcalo , agent for the Chinese government , the
only Englishman in the procession , was
joined by some hundreds ot his fellow coun
trymen who wore very much Impressed with
the solemnity of the silent ritual. Captain
Kew olllciated and ho was accompanied by
tour of his olllcers , four men In
charge of the sacrifices and
twenty others. Th < so constituted
the funeral party. Thou Inccnso was lighted
at the foot ot the grave and two rows of
plates laid out , containing moat , eggs and
tish. The Chinese funeral party then knelt
down and gave three profound salaams. Af
ter prayer the food was replaced In buckets.
and , earth having been sprinkled on the cof
fin , the ceremony concluded.
Ono of the captains said to mo to-day : "Tho
Chinese navy may bo said to bo only six
years'old , for It was not until 1S31 that our
government became convinced that the old
junks wore no longoradaptod to the purpose
of warfare , and It was then that they ordered
built for them In Germany the Chinese .Nan
Shu and Nan Slum , which are sister ships.
Two years ago there were added the Iron
clads Yang Yuan and Chen Yuan ,
armed with heavy guns nnd the
cruiser Chi Yuan and the cruisers constitute
the next additions. As to the future of the
Chinese nary , It Is clear that rapid strides
are In contemplation , as Immediately Ad
miral Lang's fleet roaches Taku orders will
be placed for four other ships , the typo of
which will depend upon the manner In
which the new vessels behave on their way
out A torpedo boat floatllla Is also In hands ,
and all the crafts are to be of the latest pat
tern. The crews of the ships consist entliely
of Chinamen , all of whom have passed
thorough training on shipboards , while In
the upper grades there Is a mixture of Eng
lish and Chinamen. Thcro Is , for
Instance , one English doctor , Dr.
Brown , who acts as fleet surgeon ,
while each ship carries Us own
native medical ofliccr. The books are
kept both by Enirllsh and native writers and
In each ship there Is both an English and a
Chinese chief engineer , but when Taku Is
reached the Englishmen will be leduced In
On leaving Spitliead next Wednesday , the
fleet will proceed dliect to Glbraltor , tlicnco
to Port Said , where they will take In coal.
They will also call at Sue/ , Alden , Colombo ,
where they will again coal , Singapore , Hong
Kong , Cliofoo and Yaku. The voyage Is ex
pected to occupy seventy-two days , consistIng -
Ing of fifty-two days at sea and twenty
In harbor and on the way out the man
will bo thoroughly practiced In torpedo , gun
and other drills. Thcso drills taking place
as far as practicable near harbors while the
routine drill ship will bo kept up almost con
stantly. This , of course , will Involve a great
deal of hard work , such as would try the en
durance of English sailors , but the China
men will bo allowed a plentiful supply of
beef and boor If they wish It to enable them
to sustain the fatigues of so much exorcise.
The machinery has already been tested on the
completion of the ships prior to their being
handed over to Admiral Lang , hence , steam
trials being no longer necessary , a greater
speed than ten knots an hour will not bo at
tempted , though at the trials on the measured
mile , the English built ships attained the
speed of18J- ; ; and the German vessels a speed
of IVA knots an hour.
I Among the distinguished visitors who
visited the admiral on board the Cblng
Yuan besides the Chinese minister to Gcr
many wore the Chinese minister to London ,
together with Chow , the dliector of the stud-
les of Chinese students In Germany , Franco
and England. At Taku the fleet will await
the arrival of the viceroy , who \yll ! make his
Inspection , and it Is not until this has been
hiadothat the four cruisers will bo handed
over to Admiral Ylng. As I rowed away
from the Interview I recalled how In visiting
an English man-ol-war one is Invariably
struck with the newness and often elegance
of the olllcers cabins , but I can at least over
and It Is doubtful whether there are any
ships tliat can excel In that respect , these
Chinese cruisers now at Spithcad , though
It must bo confessed that other parts of the
ships do not compare so favorably with what
ono Is Hcciijtnmed to see In 1'ortsinouth har
bor. Between drills , therefore , the English
ofllccrs will have plenty to do If they Insist
on preserving that spotless cleanliness
which they have been taught to regard as In-
dlspinslble In a man-of-war.

to the Dm.I The week was one of marked
depression and great .shrinkage ot values on
the stock exchange. The bears were com
pletely In control during the isroator part ol
the time , and forced thoiradvantage from day
to day until they brought about the general
demoralisation. The failure of Groveston &

they had borrowed largo amounts of money
on east and \vust Alabama lallroad bonds ,
which proved to have no market In an omer-
soncyoxerclsed a very unftxvurablo Influence

who had been holding on to considerable lines
of stocks for a long time dropped a peed
many of them , and the market was full < > 1

Ono or two of the old bears turned around
and attempted to stem the tide , but most of
their former associates stuck to the short
side and the resistance proved In vain until
near the close on Friday , when some very
largo purchases of Heading brought about
sharp realization. Great excitement pre
vailed at Intervals and there was a material
