LONDON , Oct. 0. ( Now York Herald
Cable-Special to the BEK. ! At Great St.
James hall to-night Jake Kilraln made his
lirst public appearance In England , meeting
his trainer , Charley Mitchell , In a boxing
match , four rounds , under ttio rules of the
Marquis of Quoonsbury , who yesterday dined
Loth boxers and who vras present. The hall
WAS crowded to execs ? . The prices of ad
mission wcro 35 , S2 , 75 cents , CO cents and a
quarter. The ring wai on a stage where
1'attl , Nilsson and other celebrities had sung.
It wu boarded oil by a partition six feet
high to the orchestra , below tlio grand organ ,
where sat dukes , earls and lords among
whom Aver o Allsbury and Jersey all In even
ing dress and smoking cigarettes. All wore
anxious to view Kllrain ana until he ap
peared , the slightest hitch or stoppage In
performances early on the programme was
< met by on uproar and " ( So on , please. " Kll
rain sat through theprollmlnarlcsot Indiffer
ent boxing , sword Hats , quarter stall fencing
etc. He wore a tall hat , cutaway coat and
dark pants talking often with Mitchell. He
jecined amused at the lirst exciting event of
fencing for the championship of England
between a French professor and a London
master ot arms. Johuulo Crapon claimed
the first hit which John Bull denied. The
referee declined to decide. John Bull ap
pealed to the people In front when they
cheered him so loudly the referee was obliged
to come to the front again and now decided
that John Bull had raado the lirst hit , which
brought forth great applause. At the end of
the amateur boxing match ! Lawrcnco Donovan
van , who had to-day jumped over Waterloo
bridge , sprung up and Introduced himself as
the champion diver of the world.
Though not drowned In the morning
ha was now metaphorically drowned
In hootlngs. At 10:15 : Jem Smith , who has
been boxing at exhibitions ever since the
Herald first described him six months ago ,
smilingly came onto the orchestra and a few
moments after Tony Moore rushed on the
stage carrying the Police Gazette diamond
belt in his hand. Ho was followed
by Mitchell and Kilraln whom
Moore Introduced , adding , "Gentlemen ,
please drop all party feeling when thinking
of thn coming light and give fair play. Alll
Kllrain wants is fair * play and may the best
man win. " The speech was received with
loud cheers , which Increased when Mitchell
and Kilraln at the call of time rose. In tlio
first round Kilraln got well appliudcd when
hitting Mitchell on the noso.hut otherwise the
round was tame. When'lt ended I heard such
comments about Kllrain as "He looks like
two men rolled Into ono. " "What enormous
arms ho has. " "He's very clever for a big
'an. " Smith now soomcd to have exchanged
his smile for an anxious look. Everybody
seemed to closely watch him.
The second round .vas even tamer
than the first , as both seemed to
sptr a\\ay to kill time , but the
third was improved by Kilraln get
ting a few hits homo on Mitchell's face ,
but the latter was like a cork , bouncing all
over the stage. The fourth and last round
was an improvement in the spirit of boxing ,
but many cheap priced auditors In the
rear of the house roared out , "Hit him , Char
ley , you wont kill him. Why don't you gofer
for him Mitchell , etc. , " which remarks , how-
cveri wore mot by contrary applause for
Kilraln and when finally tlmo was called
Kilraln had all the best of the bout. Over
ono rose to go and the ball was quickly
cleared. While leaving the majority ex
pressed their opinion that Kilraln will bo no
match for Smith when It comes to actual
flghtln ? . After this sham fi' Iit a real one
occurred In Mitchell's dressing room
between two representatives of the
American press who bad gone In
on due Invitation for Information. A per
sonal conversation arose between these re
porters and Mitchell , who became abusive
and Anally so tar lost his temper as to strike
both of them but not strou ly , because held
by Kilraln , who was very cool. Mitchell
evidently felt nettled at the remarks
made by the papers which the two who wore
assailed , represented. They declared they
would cable their own stories.

The Docllno of Hospitality.
The Epoch : The chief causes which
threaten Its extinction are three : First ,
the enormous increase of travel ; second ,
the pressure of occupation ; und thirdtho
growing oxpensivencss of living , es
pecially in the great centers.
The passion for travel which has de
veloped in all countries , but most here
in America , makes people unwilling to
keep up u complicated establishment
which must bo shut up or loft to run
Itself when the proprietor taecs his
winter trip to Florida or his summer
jaunt lo Norway. Each year , therefore ,
increases the number of people who pre
fer to live In a hotel , or an apartment ,
with the fewest possible servants. This
nt once became a handicap on hospitality ,
since the coming of a guest implies an
immediate upheaval of the routine of
A young married man was recently
looking over the plan of n Hat which he
was considering for a future homo , when
a friend at his elbow remarked : "But it
gives you no guest room. " "Exactly so ,
was the cynical response , "that is why I
have decided to take it. " The statement
may seem brutal , but it is a fact patent
to all , that to keep open 1'ouso in Now
York is to keep a railroad hotel. The
strain upon the nervous vitality of the
host , nnd uspeolally-tiiu hostess , would bo
enormous , oven if it were their own occupation
pation- but that it seldom is. Never.
perhaps , in thu history of tlio world has
the pressure on the vitality , the time nnd
the nerves of men and women been so
great as it is to-day. How can a
woman sit down to calm enjoy
ment of a visit , when she is
haunted by ghosts of unwritten letters ,
unrclurncd calls and unread books ; not
to mention such prosaic spectres as un-
darned stockings und uncared children'
These duties may bo put asidn for on
guest , but when the circles becomes un
ending they grow into impossibilities
The strain upon the man of the house is
almost as grout. Ho returns from a day's
work at the ollice , which leaves every
ncrva throb with irritation. Ho is fit to
nothing but dressing sack , pipe and slippers
pors before the lire , or of a restful nat > or.
the sofa. Instead , ho is requested to
hurry oft" and meet his wife's cousins , or
still worse , hid own , who arc to arrive at
the Grand Central station from Dakota
at 7:30. : Their arrival delays the dinner
hour , thereby adding indigestion to his
other troubles.
So long ns the expenses ot living fall
well within the income ; hospitality is
comparatively easy , but tlio moment
there is anv difficulty in meeting the
monthly bills , a visitor is actually
dreaded. The small family economies
must either bo put aside and the finan
cial problem allowed to grow still more
complicated , or they must bo made pain
fully apparent when contrasted with the
aggressive abundance which riots in the
streets about. ( low true is the saying
that New York belongs to the very rich
and the very poor ! For the modest in-
oomo there scorns to be no abiding place
in New York. Then the opportunities
which , as country people fancy , make it
i > o easy to entertain visitors in New
York , are in renhtv so many unceasing
calls for expenditure. The concert , the
theater rind opera arc not , as 11 rule ,
gratuituous entertainments.
San Francisco Chronicle : It is a goof !
sign when n man of Huxley's reputation
sets to work to carefully investigate spir-
itnlnm. ! Ho is so fair-minded that the
public may oxuoct to got an impartial
decision m regard to his researches ,
whllo ho is not opnn to the charge of
sentimentality that might warp his judg
ment. Tlio Soybcrt commission did
some good work , out their report was too
severe. There are thousands of people
who half believe in spiritulism yet
who long to know whether there is
really anything back of the ordinary
manifestations. These pcnplo are not to i
bo driven out of their belief by sarcasm i
or ridicule , such as some of the Seybcrt
commission indulged in. In fact the best
way to make such people partisans for
spiritualism is to make sport of any
ludicrous or unusual features in the man

is a calm , unbiased observer , of scientific
training , who will study the phenomena
of spiritualism nnd tell Iho world what
measure of genuineness there Is in the
work of Iho professional or unprofes
sional mediums.

Ono Day' * Glory.
Sioux CITV , la. , Oct. < J.-Special | Tele
gram to the BKI.J : The fourth day ot the
great corn palace has been , bayond all ques
tion , the best of the week. Kvorybody was
astir early this morning. The specials and
regular trains poured a mass of humanity
Into the city the like of which was never
seen before. It Is hard to estimate correctly
the probable number of strangers that wit
nessed the festivities of the day. But com
petent judges say there were not loss than
20,000 and the probabilities are there
were many more than this. The principal
thoroughfares ot the city have literally boon
packed all day and the palace was crowded
to Its utmost capacity all day long. Visitors
that were here during the past few
days have gone home with such glow.
Ing reports and the Idea is spreading
so rapidly that U Is hard to perceive what
the crowds will bo doing the remainder ot
the time. These favorable reports have much
to do with the size ot the crowd to-day. The
weather continues most propitious and there
has not been a fight anywhere and It would
be hard to Imagine any batter naturcd
crowds than have been hero all week.
The parade this afternoon was one ot the
best ot the kind ever seen here or , Indeed , In
the northwest. The industrial and trades
procession of yesterday was only surpassed
by the parade of to-day. A hundred floats of
ono kind and another were In line and the
result was certainly ono of the best parades
ot the kind ever seen In the west and
ono at the same tlmo thoroughly character
istic of Sioux City. The entire city Improve
ment force , scrapers , teamsters , curbers.
pavers , etc. . were In line. Several thousand
men took part in the procession , which was
variously estimated at from two to three
miles In length. The entire line of march
was crowded with spectators and there was
a general expression of surprise and admira
tion for the enterprise shown by the organ
izers ot the parade. Not merely In length ,
In magnlflconco or numbers was the trades
parade a brilliant success ; It was a success
as a picture of the business , the labor and the
energy of Sioux City. The military and
civic societies formed the principal features
of the parade. Colonel M. W. Sheaf ,
of the Second Hcglment of Dakota
guards , was In command of tlio military. The
companies In line were as follows : Iowa Na
tional Guard : Company H , Third regiment.
Captain Foster , lorty mon ; company A Third

line. The lire department composed tlio last
division. This afternoon several of the
military companies gave a battle or drill and
dress parade at the fair grounds , which were
witnessed by over live thousand spectators.
The otlicials of the Illinois Central railway
have been here to see the palace , and Gov
ernor Larrabee arrived last nliiht. He was
met at the depot by Mayor Cleland and
driven at once to the corn palace" , aud from
there to the ( iarretson. This morning a num
ber of citizens and visitors paid their respect : ' ,
to lowa'sexecutlve. The parade was reviewed
from the Garretson balcony by the governor.
A largo number of the loading citizens of
Minneapolis and St. 1'aul will bo hero by
special train to-morrow morning. To-night
will be long remembered as ono of the liveli
est of corn palace week with the beautiful
street Illuminations , lire works , bands flam
beau club and the great surging crowds ,

consolidated parade of the agrlculturaUabor ,

organizations. In the afternoon the Impos

tumes. Several prominent commandaries of
Masons of the northwest and representatives
of a largo number of lodges will be present
and take part in the Masonic exercises. The
parade ot the morning will bj the chief one.
The plans mentioned in tbese dispatches
several days ago ot making a permanent
thing of the palace have matured and a com
pany with 8259,00 capital has been organized.
A gentlemen prominently connected with
this movement stated that it Is the Intention
to make the palace nezt year ten times us
great as it is. The palace management
has decided to continue the exhibi
tion a week longer. The railroads
have all consented to extend the
excursion tickets so this can bedone. When
It Is remembered that the Idea of the corn
palace Is only about thirty days old. then it
can bo reallmt what a marvel It really is and
how happy Sioux City was In adopting it ,

DES MOIN'ES , la. , Oct. 0. [ Special Tele
gram to the DICE. I Word was received here
to-night from O'Brlon county concerning
the evictions bv a British land syndicate
which wore reported from Washington. The
cases referred to are chlotly In O'Brien
county in northwestern Iowa. It is stated
that Iho land In question , some thirty-six
thousand acies , was part of an old unearned
grant made by the general government to
the St. i'Aiil A Sioux City railroad but during
Secretary Teller's administration ot tliu
interior department when Commissioner
McFariand had charge of the general land
office , official notice ot the Intention ot the
government to recall the lands as unearned
and turn them over to the state of Iowa foi
publloontry was made and It was understood
that the land did so revert. The letters be
tween the heads of departments were pub
lished by the secretary of state of Iowa ,
and , acting In accordance therewith , scoroa
of settlers iilnd claims to the lands and an *
nouneed their Intention ot taking such steps
as were necessary to secure them as soon aa
the government had formally completed the
transfer. Since then It appears that the lands
passed Into the hands of an Kn llsh syndi
cate formerly known as the "Close Brothers
company. " Later the company was incor
porated as thu "Western Land company , "
and some Knglish residents of northwestern
Iowa were added to It. The general Impres
slon In that part of the state is that the prln
clpal holder ot these lands Is the Duito ol
Sutherland. At any rate It Is understood
that It Is an Kuvllsh syndicate composed ol
Knglish capitalists that Is oppressing the
poor sottlers. As to the evictions It Is stated
that they have been going on more 01
less for the past two years anc
some as recently as the fore part of Septem
ber last. The cruelty and severity of these
evictions as described in the published re
ports , It Is said , have not been exaggerated.
Several cases of peculiar hardship un
mentioned. Among them that ot Mrs. Scott
who lived about four and a halt miles frou
Prlnighar , the county seat She was an In
valid and bed-ridden and the evlctora selzoi
her bed and forcibly carried It from tin
house , out upon the prairies. In many case ;
It is stated that settlers were givea theli
option , either to bo driven from their licno ;
or sign a contract of lease
purchue from tha Ias4 syndicate
Uvlctlooi haye beeo Steadily going on
by force ana a fresh batch ar expected afto

but two or three weeks ago settlers were
driven from their homes In the storm and
compelled to get wnat protection they could

As announced at the last meeting , the
club had agreed to receive three or four
colored inventors of tire extinguishers ,
whoso wita had been sot to work by the
ctlbrts of the Lime Kiln club to present
this country with something cheap , dur
able and to depend on in case of railroad
wreck or steamboat collision.
"Tl'K . "
This was the iauo ; of an invention by
Hon. lirigantino Caruthers , of Terre
Haute , Ind. It appdared to bo a squirt-
gun on u large scale. The appearance
was shortly confirmed , when the tire boll
sounded and the inventor made a rusli
into the northwest "corner to light the
rod-tonguod flumes. Ho fit and In. Ho
not only put out the ryd-tonguod demon ,
but he wet down twenty-two members
and two-thirds of ttio pacrcd relics in the
museum.Vhcn it > was found that a pail
of water must bo carried along with the
gun , and that it was'not ' provided with
either fore or hind , sights , the club de
cided to hold oil' . Pickios Smith laid for
the inventor in the pnteroorn , to lick him
for wetting down .dis now Lord Hyron

caped by the alloy stairs.
"THE SQpKtdlEU. "
This was the nam6 pf un invention by
Judge January Uosyvick , of Augustu.Gn.
When ho emptied it out of a bag nothing
but a piece of garden hose about BIX foot
long was visible. Ten minutes later the
judge himself was not visible. Ho ex
plained that the piece of hose was to bo
attached to another piece , and both
pieces ton water plug , and as soon us the
was turned on tne extinguisher would
proceed to extinguish. A sound came
up from the alley as tf hu had : on
the broad of his back , but ho w s proba-
blv ruoro scartd than hurt.
There wore twooth > r Inventors waiting
to exhibit , but U was decided not to att-

LINCOLN , Neb. , Oct. 0. [ Special to the
BIB. : | It-was nearly eight o'clocic this mornIng -
Ing when the republican st.itoconvention ,
worn out with the night's work , llnnllv ad
journed and the delegates hurried trom the
convention hall to the trains. Nearly twelve
hours had been occupied in one ot the most
animated conventions ever held In the state.
After ttio convention had cot through with
tlio body of the plattorm as reported back by
the cominlttoe.ex-Congressiiiau Valentino In
troduced a set of resolutions retarding the
tariff , to bo as a substitute for the tariff
plant previously tabled. This brought Gen
eral Van \Vyck to bis feet , who occupied
three-quarter * of an hour In a scathing re
view of the inconsistencies of tariff legisla
tion , llo finally ottered a resolution declar
ing in favor ot free lumber , free
coal and coarse material for wearing
apparel. This resolution was tabled , and the
Valentino plank , slightly modified , was
finally adopted. Then came the tug of war
between the houses ot Lancaster and Doug
las. The lighting was forced over the resolu
tion requesting the governor to call n special
session of the legislature , In case tha supreme
court should hold that the present railroad
board 1m ? no cower to lix maximum rates of
freight. Judge Mason who had held himself
hi rcseive for this occasion , read a powerful
appeal In support ot this resolution and
created quite a sensation with thu
exhibit of extortionate railroad rates In Ne
braska as compared with Minnesota , Iowa
and other states. A motion was made by
Drodorlck , of Douglas , to indefinitely post
pone the tesolution , and this drew out a
mo.-rt exciting debate. In which half a dozen
delegates including Speaker llnrlan , partici
pated. The previous question was finally
ordered , and the motion to indefinitely post
pone was lost bv a majority of nearlv 100.
Mr. Uosowator thereupon offered the follow-
111 ? substitute :
Whereas , The late legislature has utterly
failed to redeem the pledges made to the
people dining the campaign of
iyi > 0 , to enact laws which would
afford relief to the patrons of the railroads by
reducing transportation tolls. Therefore
Ucsolved , That It is our earnest desire and
request that the members ot the legislature
shall tender their resignations to the
governor , and that an election to fill their
places bo called at the general election on the
bth oT November , or within sixty days there
after , and that the governor Is respectfully
leqtiosled to Issue a call for a special session
ot the legislature thus to be elected , and said
call to have for its chief oliject the enactment
of laws regulating the railroad traflic.
Ucsolved , That tins convention heartily
endorse the efforts of the state board of
transportation to compel railroads to give
fair treatment to shippers.
The introduction ot this substitute brought
out a volley of objections but the chair finally
iilecl It to bo in order , and Mr. Itosowatcr ,
mild yells hisses and shouts from the Lan
caster delegation and a nolsv Lincoln lobby ,
irocccdcd to support his resolutions. During
ho progress of his speech , in which
10 denounced the last legislature
n scathing terms and levlewed
heir shameless disregard of their
iledges on the senatorial and railway issues ,
lie excitement grew very intense. In spite
it all the cllorts to got him off the floor he
< ept on for more than an hour. Finally , on
notion of ( irecne , of Douglas , to table the
substitute and original proposition , a roll
: all was ordered , resulting in the tlnluat ot
.ho motion. Then filibustering and cross-
irlnc began In winch Frank Jtansom
ook a leading part In support of
.ho substitute. Confusion ami excitement
grew more intense and at times nearly all the were on their feet , shouting , yoll-
ng and hissing. By 0:3) : a. in. a vote on tlio
substitute was taken and it lost by a
arise majority. Then Judge Mason's resolu
tion was ordered to a vote. More filibuster-
, tu , confusion and disorder followed , and
inally on a call by counties the resolutions
Tor the special session were defeated by over
forty majority , and the convention , after
electing John 1) . Melklejohn chairman of
the state central committee , adjourned sine
The entire resolutions as finally adopted as
the platform of the party are as follows :
The republican party of Nebraska , while
ever careful of property rights , and holding
no sympathy with those who would with the
communist divide , or with the anarchist no-
stroy , reasserts Its determination that the
great railway corporations of this statu
which hold relations of closest Interest to tha
people shall bo the. fairly paid servants of the
state and not Its masters. The work of leg
islative control In the state and nation shall
continue until all cause of complaint of ex-
horbltant rates and unjust discrimination In
favor of individuals or localities shall cease
to exist. Assuming the responsibility which
fairly belongs to it of having originated all
legislation looking to railroad control and the
creation of those tribunals or commis
sions which have been enabled to
grapple with corporate power , the
republican party will see to It that
by all needed enlargements of power these
commissions , national and state , shall be
armed for battle anil for victory. While fa
voring such change in the constitution of this
state as will permit the railroad commission
ers to be elected by the people , It hereby
voices Its confidence In the existing board of
transportation , and commends Its efforts to
obtain for Nebraska the same tariff of rates
for frelitht and carriage of passengers as Is
accorded to neighboring states similarly cir
cumstanced. It Is grossly unjust and a griev
ous wrong that Nebraska should pay more
tor the transportation of her products and
the carriage of her supplies than her nolgh-
cors , Iowa , Minnesota and Dakota , with its
3,000 miles of easily constructed and cheaply
maintained lines of railroad and thu republi
cans of this state will not cease their efforts
until all wrongs bo righted.
We reaffirm our adherence to the American
system of tariff , under which , with its
broau protection to American labor , our
country has prospered beyond any other. As
the business ot ttio country now demands
revision the republican party , alive to the de
mands of every material interest , will see to
It that such revision shall bo made at the
earliest practical day. We condemn the
action of the democratic majority In congress -
gross that alter repeated Pledges of tariff re
form , It has utterly failed , while having a
largo majority In the house of representa
tives , where tariff bills must originate , to
bring about such reform , which must oomo
from the party that has over been the friend
of the American laborer and producer.
The gtateful thanks of the American people
plo aru due to those who defended the union
In the late war , and we ore In favor of pro
viding suitable pensions for soldiers and
and sailors who wete disabled In Its service
or who have since , without their fault or
vice , become objects of public or private
charity and to thu widows and orphans of
those who fell In Its defense.
We heartily sympnthUo with the ambition
and efforts ot the patriots of Ireland In tlielr
endeavors to obtain for their country the
blessings of free Instl.ntlons and local self-
government. We recognize In Charles Stow-
nrt Parnell and the lit , Hon. William K.
tiladstono worthy champions of the funda
mental principles ot the Declaration of Inde
We condemn the action of the president In
his attempt to return the trophies won by
bravery on the Held of battle.
Wo condemn tha narrow , Intolerant and
partisan action Of thu democratic party In
excluding from the privileges of state citizenship -
ship the halt million people of Dakota , solely
Cii Iho unmanly and Indefensible ground of
a difference in political views. Not content
wlthtnelreflortstoexcluda the negro from
the elective franchise they now seek to pro
scribe au Intelligent , prosperousand patriotic
people because of tholr political opinions.
NVe view with alarm the abuse of the veto
power by the president of thu United States.
A power from thu use of whlcii hnglish sov-
ernlgns have abstained for two centuries , a
power used but six times during the lirst
forty years ot our national government , a
power by the people Intrusted to he presi
dent for the purpose of preventing hasty Iwr-

rDa hccl to Death ,
The funeral of Patrick O'Sht-a nt South
Jmaha yesterday afternoon had n most
tragic ending , two relatives of tlio de
ceased , James Delaney nnd Dennis
O'Shon , being both killed at the "Q"
street crossing while roturnlnc from St.
Mary's cemetery.
Tlio crossing at which tlio accident oc
curred is about BOOynrds bulow the South
Omaha depot , und about a mile from tlio
cemetery. At the tlmo of the accident it
a asserted that the men wore racing with
the buggy just in front of them , in which
were John Noonan and John Sullivan.
None of them noticed the 0:15 : train coni
ng from the south at full speed , nor the
shouts and frantic gestures of the ( Ing-
man , William Kit/patrick who' tried to
warn them of their danger. Noonnn
and Sullivan did not dUcovei
ho train until they wcro on tha
track and the engine was but a few foot
away. Noonan struck the horse a .smart
Dlpwnnd ho jumped forward just in
time to make the buggy clear the track
as the train wont rushing by. Hut Delaney
noy and O'Shoa , who wore about half a
length bohlnh , were struck by the en
gine. Their horse was thrown about
ifty feet and instantly killed , their
JUggy completely demolished and the
; wo men thrown , one to the right and
the other to Iho left of the track. Delaney
noy , who suffered a fracture of the skull ,
did not regain consciousness and died in
about five minutes. O'Shoa was also
wounded in the head , besides sustaining
a broken log and injuries about the chest ;
Ho was conscious of his injury and
talked intelligently , but in about fifteen
minutes ho , too , was dead.
Airs. Delaney , who was in the carriage
| ust in front of that containing Sullivan
and Noonan , drove on to Omaha igno
rant of the terrible fate of her husband
and brother , and did not learn of it until
an hour after it happened. When the news
tvas communicated to the young widow
ler grief and horror were heartrending ,
ind it is teared that the calamity has dethroned -
throned her reason.
Patrick O'Shca , whose funeral had
lust taken place at the time of the acci
dent , was a cousin of Mrs. Delanoy.
Dennis O'Shoa was her brother. Shu
was married to Dclnnoy only last Jan
uary , and thus in only a few hours
she loses cousin , brother and husband.
James Delnney was about twenty-six
years old and Dennis O'Shca about twen
ty-four , Both belonged to the
Jmalia fire department , ono to
