Scarlo ruco with us much enthusiasm as If
the championship races on the Thames oc
curred four days ago. Hotting was 15 to 10
on Scnrlo , nnd for thirty minutes the odds
ruled 0 to 4 in bis favor. The odds were too
big to suit the Australians , whoso pockets
were lined with gold. They were too small
to null the Canadians. The luttor wanted 2
to 1 , but the odds gradually grow smullcr ,
until to-day tiioy vanished and even money
was the cry.
BjTha start Is to bo by mutual consent. To
such u start O'Connor is unaccustomed. Ho
Is a quick qturtur. To htm the pistol shot
moans to got a way , but of what usa are his
quick Blurting powers when ho is compelled

Ho wanted a pistol shot or a word-of-moutu
start , but was overruled , his representatives
being greatly in the minority at the meeting
at which the preliminaries were agreed upon.
Then , too , O'Connor has never rowed upon
tklu water. All his races have been rowed
upon still water. Searlo is at
homo on tldo water. In a race bo
twccn men who are In strength and
skill evenly watched thcso drawbacks should
count in the betting , but they have failed to
do so , and to-night the Indications are that
O'Connor will bo the fnvonto before the men

The race will bo rowed on what is known
ns a dead tide. It- will bo dead only in com
parison wlt'ii a spring tide , which ! au current
of from four to five nnloi an hour. To-tnor-
row the tide will run /it u rate of about thrco
inllos an hour. Watermen who huvo for
weeks been looltmg at both men In practice
expect the winner to innko wonderful time.
The fastest tlmo ever a chainpisnohlp course )
was rmido a few years ugo by Charles
Brightly , who covered it in somothniET over
twcnt.v-two minutes with the aid of a fast
tide. It is expected that to-morrow's winner

In that race each man will bo accompanied
by ono of the London Rowing club's fast
twelve oared boats. Each boat will bo
manned by experienced watermen. It was
supposed that an oight- < arid cutter would

men at the oars and a guide , commonly
known as itho man who taltes him up , " but
this proved n mUtako. Such a cultor and
crow wont out with O'Connor to day. It
contained Wallace Koss , Gcorcro Lee ,
Charles Ino , Tom Gibson , LSuba.ir aud 13111
East. The cutter crow laid down to its
work. As soon us O'Connor straightened
out the man in the bow yelled to his crow to
put beef into their strokes. They aid so. He
yelled for moro coal until every furnace
was red hot , but all to no purpose. The single -
glo scullor wont away with every stroke.
and it was demonstrated on the spot that
seven oarsmen couldn't carry u guide and
coxswain as dead weight and show the way
to the champion of America.
Both sides are in doubt. Each thinks its
man has a cliunco nnd that ubout describes
the situation. Most of-tho Australians have
bet their money excepting ono party , who
carried about 7,000 , and that has boon
placed , or very nearly so. Edwin Goo car
ries about 10,000 , which ho was commis
sioned to wujcr by Spencer Bros. , of
Australia. Ho is waiting for better terms.
Last night both Scurlo and O'Connor ' were
In splendid tieulth utid line spirits. Searlo
weighed 1ft ) pounds In his bare pelt. O'Con
nor weighed ono pound lighter , nnd none of
Ills friends would have grumbled had ha
weighed four or live pounds moro.
The men uro to bo In their bo.its at a quar

four steam vessels will bo permitted to follow
low the raco.

the royalist deputies courting him en musso.
Thu honor of being permitted lo figure us a

ing on the list of eiuulidiUos whom Uoulungur

This Is significant. Men who yesterday
eought lioujaugcr'u patronugo nnd repudi
ated it to-duy , have come to their opinion
after carefully studying tlio public sentiment
of thu country und sounding the ground
they nro to stand on ut the election. Tnut

fusal or inability to clear Ultiuulf of the

peatedly declared that ho would huvo no

that ho asserts his readiness to ap

Furthermore , Boulanger must % huvo been

if It HO desired , ignore the verdict of the
higher court and appoint another tribunal to
try the case.
Taken altogether , Uoulangor's letter Is
not worthy of sorloiH consideration. The
bravo general has no desire to return to
Franco before the election to expose him
self to the divers personal inconveniences
which await him when ho sots foot on
French soil. All ho wanted was to persuade
the siniplo souls among Ills cohorcnts that ho
was burning with n desire to clear himself
nnd that the government refused to glvo

recourse to the electoral dodge proves that
ha believes his position to bo anything but a

For n Swelled Thront.
BISMVRCK , N. D. , Sent. 8. [ Special Tele
gram to THE Buc.While there has been
altogether too much moonshine in the report
sent out to the effect that Sitting Hull had
men arrested on suspicion of havintr poisoned
Chief John Grass , the fact remains that
there Is no little suspicion and distrust
among the Indians. Grass was not poisoned.
Agent McLauphlln lias jast returned from
the bcdsido of Grass , who has been at the
point of death for some time , and reports the
great chief convalescent. He states nu-
Uioritatlvoly that Grass was overcome by the
licat , and as ono of the effects a swelling was
formed in his throat. To reduce , the swell
ing tie used a gargle of koroscno oil freoly.
and the strata was so great that it caused
hemorrhage , which came near sending the
qrcat chief of tbo Sioux nation to the
happy hunting grounds. Ilo is now resting
well , and , in the opinion of Agent McLaughlin -
lin , will recover.
The report that Sittinf ? Bull had been ar
rested for poisoning Grass was a most ma
licious and mischievous report , started by
some sensationalist , and can accomplish no
good. Thcro is sufficient distrust and sus
picion against the obsth erous old kicker
without resorting to uiitrfutU to Increase his
unpopularity. The fact la , the Indians adore
Grass , and since his prostration'havo given
themselves completely up to their supersti
tious. Many of them are only too willing to
believe tnat ho had bean poisoned at Sitting
Bull's Institution , and at urlvato councils
hold by the immediate friends of Grass , Uull
wus denounced in the most savage terms.
iVs for Sitting Bull's attitude , ha looks
upon the illness of his victorious rival with
c lm indifference , but neve r foils to express
his sincere regrets when in the presence of
the friends of Grass.
During the past few days the Indians'
superstitions have taken a now and novel
turn. Hundreds of them are now convinced
that the illness of Grass is the just retribu
tion visited upon them by the Great Spirit
for having sig'ied the treaty deeding their
lands to the whites , and are wondering if it
is possible for them to withdraw their signa
tures and unao their evil work. Ono old
squaw , wuiling und betnoanlug as she
cumo from tno homo of the stricken
chief , exclaimed between her sobs : "On ,
why did we eivo away our lands und rob our
children I" This expressed the query in the
minds of a largo faction of the Indians , who ,
under the leadership of Grass , had consented
to the opening ot the reservation , but who
now believe that tliey are to bo made to suf
fer for their terrible mistake. Here It is
thought that Sitting Bull has done the poi
soning. He did not poison John Grass , hut
bo has taken advantage of his sudden illness ,
following so closely upon his grand
victory in inducing the Indians to
sign , to poison the minds of the Indians
with the sumo mysterious charm and inexhaustible -
haustiblo cunning which made him their
great loader during the Ouster campaign und
gave him credit for u victory which ho never
won. Ho Is now monopolizing the friend
ship of the Great Spirit and loses no time to
convince the superstitious warriors that ho
was in the right when he opposed the open
ing of the reservation. As proof ho points
with awe und crocodile regrets to the man
ner In which the Great Spirit has prostrated
Grass , but in all probability his plans will
corao to naught , for ; ho orospoct of Grass1
recovery is good. If Grass should now die
Siitlne Uull and his "Great Spirit" would
bo u strong team with the reds.

-hroo of the four states nud believe they
iavo a good chance of success in tbo fourth ,

gress. This will glvo the republicans u ina-
orlty in the house of at least six under the
very worst circumstances , whllo It may bo
increased to eight or nine , not considering
the result of contested elections.
The democratic employes in the house nro
relying upon n doadlocic lu the organization
which will carry thorn ever to a late day in
January. and if it was not
for the augmentation of tlio
republican majority by the admission of the
new stutes they believe they would continue
to hold their places until next spring , while
many of them , on account of the closeness
of the republican majority und the possi
bility of compromises in tbo organization of
the house , would fight to keep a continuous
bold on their places. The candidates for the
leading1 positions under the now organization
uro Edward McPhcrson nnd John M. Car
son , of Pennsylvania , clerk , and Charles H.
Adams , editor of the Hagorstown ( Md. )

A succession of pistol shots rang out on
ho still night nlr and three men lay \vrlth-
utf In uifony , ono mortally nnd the others
'cry seriously woumtcd.
It happened last night about 10 o'clock In
Tom Mngtilro's saloon on South Thirteenth
trcet , just outside the city limits , In what Is
cuown ns "Oklahoma , " or "No Man's
-and , " and Constable At Musterman was
ho party doing the shooting , whllo John

Then cuuio cries of " 1CI11 the of a

other exclamations of like ilk , followed by n
romondous sculllo , from which u man bruised
and bleeding miimigod to escape nnd scelc
refuge In the trees hard by.
Ycstnrday was a sort of gala day In the
district mentioned. Tom Magulro , n South
Dmuhu mail , had purchased n saloon of ono
liaison , and had udvortlsod ugrundoponlog ,
rlo had u crowd composed m the main of
traders , who uro wonting oh South Thlr-
.centh. . A very tough crowd they arc u * a
rule , nnd are generally on the lookout for
They got It.
Albert Mastcrnmn , the constable , is em-
> loycd by the three saloonkeepers In Oltla-
loma to deep order. "Ho has boon on duty
there for some time. For the lust three
weeks ho has had trouble with u crowd of
non who have visited the place for the pur-
lese of "doing him up. "
aOno week ago yesterday they went up to
vingulro's place and raised a row by shout ,
rig and using profane nnd indecent language ,
'or which Mustcrmun ejected two of thorn.
This scorned to anger the crowd , and last
light about u , dozen of them wont up and in-
'ormcd the constable that they proposed to
'fix him. " Ho argued that they hud best
lot try it , nnd was promptly knocked down
'or his pains. Then the trouble began with
the result as ubovo stated.
After the shooting Mustorman was beaten
and Incited into a jolly , nnd his Ufa was saved
only by his activity in making his oscapo.
His ellort wus ttial of a man who saw death
staring him in the face , and when ho at , last
saw that ho was out of harm's way the re-
uctiou sot in , nnd by the tune ho had reached
the city ho was BO weak ho could scarcely
speulr. Ho tells the following story :
"I am employed in Oklahoma to keep order
at tlio tlireo saloons owned by Tom Mugulro ,
Flannery and the old place still owned by
Hanson. Magillro had n dance last nlggt ,
and 1 was there us usual. This" gang of men ,
who last Sunday cave mo some , trouble ,
came up about ( I o'clock mid said they
were going to fix mo. I advised
them ilot to try It on. and then they said
that If I would sot up the boor it would bp
all right , but I told thorn I would not buy'
anything. Then two of thorn knocked mo
down and ran out. Pretty sonn they ca'ino
back with about , eight or ten moro and said ,
'Now wo have got you'you s of a b , '
and made for me. I pulled my gun und told
them lh.it if they touclicd mo there would bo
trouble , but they kept couiiuir und 1 began
firing. 1 huld my pistol low , becauao I did
not want to kill anyone , and kept on llrlng
until it was empty Then they knocked mo
down nnd kicked diitil I urn , as you see , a.
mass of cuts and oiuises , They hit mo with
knuckles , and one of thorn tried to chop mo
with a knife. 1 finally managed to escape
nnd wns arrested by two mounted policemen ,
who wcro sent out to look mo up , and that's
all I know about it. "
Mastcrman's appearance tcstillcd as to the
success his , opponents had. His head was
cut in several pluces. whllo his fnco ro-
somuled u piece of raw boof. His body was
one muss of bruises , and ho was , m fart , a.
used up man. It is doubtful if he gats out
again for some time.
Down ut the graders' camp of Ryan & Can-
fluid u different story was told. All the grad
ers were unanimous In sayinir that Mastermun
beuun the racket. Jim McCurty , one of the
wounded men , who was shot through the
scrotum and thigh , contended that ho was
only u bystander , und that the parries who
began the row were strangers to him. Mus-
tcrman says , however , that ho knows that
McCarty assaulted him. Jones is a young
boy , nnd was shot In the right leg. He , too ,
disclaimed any knowledge of wrong doing.
Vanishing could not speak.
McCarty and Jones , whllo painfully
wounded , will , in the opinion of City Physi I
cian Halpn , who attended thorn , recover in a
short time , while Vanlslaus' condition Is
critical. The ball which hit him entered
about an inch above the loft nlpplo , In
close proximity to the heart , nnd could not bo
located. Tlio young follow was in great ag
ony while the physician was prosont. The
snooting was done with a iii-culibro re
The Bc no of the shooting is a very hard
place , and is neither In Omaha nor South
Omaha ; houro the uuthoriticsof neither city
have any jurisdiction , The saloons are the
resorts of the toughest characters of both
places. Hanscu feared trouble yoa'torduy
afternoon and closed tit 5 o'clock.
All the parties Implicated will bo arrested
to-day with tlio exception of Vuiilslous , who
cannot possibly gpt away. Mugulro , the sa
loon man , will also bo arrested.
