however , with \toor \ judgment nnd Gibbons
met blm nt every turn. In tbo Infighting ,
which was fre < | U nt , Dnljr showed n dan-
porous rlntit , but Austin nlrely avoided Ibis
nnd escaped with but little Injury ,
In the following round It was again In Gib
bons' fnvor , bo catching Daly some stlft
upnercuts. and In tbo hot Infighting which
ensued Gibbons dropped Daly to his Icni'cs
with a stilt upnTcut. | and several well timed
clips toward thn end of the round sent Daly
to his corner the under dojr In the scrim-
rmiRo. Gibbons was very confident nnd
Not it moment was lost In tbo tenth. Both
men camu together llko rams , but Daly's at-
tcinptn at punishment \vero met with In
terest by tbo cool Patterson bid , but toward
the end of tbo round Daly landed three hard
rights , which bothered Ulbbons considerably
nnd renewed interest again.
Following this camu a round of very warm
fighting. Daly , who up to this tlmo bad
been getting the short end of the contest ,
recovered wonderfully , meeting Gibbons
with stllT returns , though towards the close
of the round Gibbous hammered In hot shot
and sent Daly to bis corner In tough shape.
Gibbons had the lead still.
In thn twelfth D.ily starts the blood from
Gibbons' nose , but still the Jersey boy is the
aggressor , with Daly gamely holding his
own easily. Gibbons' left swings do fearful
damage , but Daly has still n terrific clip up
his sleeve , anil Gibbons is now beginning to
rccognlro this fact. Both about In tbo s.imo
Some Itrnl Hot righting.
In the thirteenth round , Gibbons leads on
tbo stomach and uppercuts Daly in the
mouth and a moment later repeats the dose.
JSoth nro n trifle winded , but neither will
allow the other a moment's rest. Gibbons
almost knocks Daly through the ropes , but
the Uangor lad lands two stiff lofts In re
turn. Gibbons rushes Daly to the ropes as
tbo round closed.
In the fourteenth Daly was the aggressor ,
but gets bit for bit. Daly tries bis right ,
misses n terrific clip , and then both are cau
tious for the first tlmo during this extraor
dinary mill. No results.
In the fifteenth Gibbons' swinging left
landed three times on Daly's sere mouth and
tbo blood flowed. Daly attempted to fight
back , but Gibbons mixed matters so
viciously with right Jolts that Daly Is sent
to bis 11 bed o very sleepy.
Tbo sixteenth was a corker. Gibbons was
nt his man like a cyclone , knocking him
about the room and all but putting blm out ,
though Dal ) ' demonstrated a remarkable
greed for punishment.
Tbo next round Daly recovered somewhat
nnd tried his right unsuccessfully , and
Gibbons' slipped In the clinch , with Mlko on
top of him. Gibbons onjregalnlng his feet
went right at Mlko and is apparently put
ting on the finishing touches with his right.
Daly Html to 1'lnUh.
In the eighteenth round Daly started
toward Gibbon In a dcspcrato attempt
to turn tbo tiue. but Gibbons was shifty and
covered ground too fast for Mlko. Gibbons
as Hatful sent Mlko to his corner in a dis
tressed stato. Both men stuck close to ono
another In the nineteenth , trying hard to
land tbo right , Gibbons strong and Daly
Gibbons still retains tbo lead in tbo
twentieth but Is unabloto land the knockout
clip. Gibbons is very cool and determined.
Ills great advantage in reach bandlca oped
Daly awfully. But very little lighting was
done in the twenty-first.
In thn twenty-second n stiff right-hander
on Daly's neck was the only important
feature. The next round shows Gibbons'
advantage , but Daly's disposition to accommodate -
modato Austin In any st.vlo keeps the Patter
son boy busy. It is a desperate fight. In
the twenty-fourth round matters wcro still
unchanged. Daly fights pluckily and earn
estly , but is unable to do much execution.
Almost ICiuliMl 3ll hi l.
Tbo twenty-fifth started with a clinch , in
which Daly went down. Gibbons starts the
blood from Daly's loft car with a. right band
swing , and nuts him down for eight seconds ,
and near the close knocks him down again
for six seconds , and was finishing him as the
gong sounded. In tbo twenty-sixth Gibbons
forced Daly to bis knees time and again , 'but
tbo Danger man is still full of light , though
nearly gone. In the twenty-seventh Gibbons
smaslicd Daly all over tbo ring , and Daly ,
being almost hopeless , shoved his knco sev
eral times into Austin's abdomen In the
mix-up and was cautioned to desist. Ho was
nil out of it.
In the twenty-eighth Daly pursued his
mean tactics , ana is cautioned by Captain
Barrett. Ho is desperate , and can last but
In the twenty-ninth Gibbons punished
Daly terribly , Daly falling repeatedly to save
himself. It Is a hideous fight. The thirtieth
was another vicious ono , Gibbons punishing
Mlko with right and left and upporcutting
him on his attempts to clinch. Daly's gameness -
ness nnd stamina are marvelous.
The next round Gibbons walked out
briskly and staggered Daly with n
straluht right , Daly wobbling but desper
ately gamo. A tremendous left in the car
knocks Daly to the canvas , and a right swing
In the chin knocks him out.
It was ono of the most stubborn battles
fought in this country for years , and while
Daly is n wonderfully good little man , Gib
bous Is a bolter ono.
Tired ol the Scrapper * .
The carnival closes tomorrow evening , and
out of the thousands and thousands of stran
gers In the city there nro probably none to
regret this fact , save the short end pugs , the
proprietors of the Kt. Charles , the booze
joints , cabbies nnd Ono-oycd Connolly. The
remainder of mankind bad been surfeited to
nauseation with fights nnd lighters. As n
fitting close of this week of unbridled Impet
uosity , excitement and debauchery comes
what is expected to bo the greatest pugi
listic event within the the annals of flsthna ,
tbo S40OIK ) meeting between the two
middleweight giants , Jim Hall and
Bob FitzMimnous. To tlio.su who
liavo devoted time nnd study to the
ring durimr the past ( juartor of n century
nnd who have " "
"kept tab" with almost re-
liglous fidelity uiwn the scores of men promi
nent iu Its affairs , there lias been no match
that has awakened the keen Interest that
this ono has. The international battle ,
memorable us It Is , between John 0. Ileenan ,
American prodigy , and Tom S.iyors , the
English paragon , thirty-two years ago , none
3f Jack Dempsey's championship encounters ,
nor John L.'s long line of knockouts , oven in-
; luding his defeat at the hands of clover Jim
Corbett , nro to bo mentioned In the same
Tliuro's Something In This.
From the fact that the two rival Aus
tralians are equally matched in skill and nil
tbo prerequisites essential to pugilistic dis
tinction , the affair is onn that has been
looked forward to with the most Intense and I
feverish Interest over slnco the two men
Imvobccn in the country , nnd , particularly so
slnco the momentous night when the human
gorilla , Fitzslmmons , shattered , battered if iI I
and destroyed America's llstlo idol , Jack
Deropsoy. Corbott's defeat of the big fellow
has noon accepted as an exemplification of
tbo theory of evolution , and Is almost |
fable , but the annihilation of Jack Dcmpsoy
by the nntlpodcan monstrosity Is a tiling yet
to bo avenged. Hundreds nnd thousands
think the hour has arrived , and the excite
ment over the probable fruition of this houo
of years is somuth'ng that surpasses any
thing of the kind previously known.
Another thing that adds to all this extra
ordinary interest Is the magnitude of the
purse for which the two men are to contend.
Forty thousand dollars Is a fortune within
Itself , nnd such n ono as millions of atoms
called men , superior in point ot intollectuiu
physical or moral lift ) to the principals ii
this unheard-of competition , will work out
their allotted days without attaining half its
Itob rit/ilmmoiu1 Triumphal farcer.
Since the day when Bob Fitzslmmons
landed in this country a penniless emigrant r
who , for want of funds , worked his way t o
Ban Francisco from his native soil , the lain
of the kangaroo , the American public has
been Interested in his doings in the ring
Ills easy victory over McCarthy on the PaclfU
jtlopo , his more easy defeat of Uphara in
this city , and the record which lie had inado
for himiolf on his native heath attracted the
attention of the sporting world and the
famous match with Jack Dcmpsoy followed
In no long time. The defeat of the Non -
paroll Is too fresh in the public mind to ro-
qulre a repetition of the pluses of the con ;
teat. FitMlmmons1 victory stamped him ns
n wonderful tighter. Dotnpsoy Imd nil along
IOPII noted for his quickness nnd shiftiness ,
ml thoclovonipss of Fitzslmmons so far ex
celled his ability In this respect that the
oiitost wns strongly marked. FltMimmons
icxt fought 1'otor Maher , the hoavy" weight ,
vho was huratded ns the champion of 1 ro
und , hut who only Indifferently well rcpro-
icnted his country. Heavy weight an ho
van , strong and clover as those who saw the
ight havu admitted , Fltzilmmons put him to
loop In twelve short , hot rounds.
The tall Australian can Justly bo credited
vlth remarkable strength , shiftiness , clever-
less at long nnd short range , and the most
enllal requisite , coolness In the ring. He
quick ns a eat In his ovcry movement ,
unl his plstonllko Jabs with both right and
eft have In no small degree tended to give
ilin that eminent i > osltloii which ho has so
oug held ,
liull Also .Homo I'limpltlm.
,11 in Hall , the equally tall and strong op-
KMicnt of the champion , is n focman worthy
of the prowess of which Fitzsiinmons has
irovcn himself to ho iwssesscd. As n
> oxcr ho is Fltzslmmons' etial ( | and In
ho skillful use of his feet , his
iblllty to pet away at the proper
noment ami quickness totako advantage of
he slightest oDcnlng ,11m Hall Is credited
vlth being able to excel the present holder
> f the title of champion of America at the
nlddlo weight limit. His remarkable
victory over Ted I'rltehard , the conqueror of
1cm Smith , who was for years the Idol of
ho English pugilistic world , won for him re-
town which Fltzslminons gained by his
victories over Dempsey and Mahor.
\VhyTlioy Will Fight.
Tomortow night's battle will bo on the
evel , never fear for that. The men are
Demies , not deadly enemies , however , as
some people might have the public bellovc ,
nit nevertheless they are enemies. Fitz
slmmons has been stung to the quick by the
widespread publication of the fact Unit ho
'iive in to Hall in tlio years gone by. Ho is
.iroud of the reputation which ho has won in
.Ills country , and fully realizes that ho must
ivhlp Hall before the stain which rests on
ils escutcheon Is removed.
Hail , on the other hand , is jealous of the
loners which his countryman has won.
Pitzslmmnns stands in his way to fame and
; ho possibility of possessing a fortune , and
t Is safe to say that ho will exert himself to
; ho utmost to nniko Fltz.slmnions stand aside
'rotn his path and clear his way to pugilistic
glory , and for ono I think ho will succeed.
However much may bo said by carping
pessimists of the luck of honor In pugilists
> f the day , some attention should ho given
-ho fundamental principle that In every man
there lies some good , and that nature docs
not make a man wholly bad. Thf men have
realized that nny jobbery will bo discovered ,
should it l > e attempted , and as it is in the
lim of winning the biv' purse , which carries
with It a reputation not to bo disregarded
uul an additional possibility of wealth ,
iliey will make the effort of their lives und
fight us they have never before dono.
Loving Onino for the Club.
The trains arriving hqro this morning
brought additions to the crowds in uttciul-
inco on the lights and there will be more
people present than were expected last week ,
it is doubtful , however. If the club will bo
iblo to make up the purse from the receipts.
It will probably have to go down Into Its
liockets to get entirely clear. Neither man ,
however , has any apprehension touching tlio
Ability of the club to pay the entire sum to
the winner. The arrival of Hall has aroused
ntcrest considerably in the light tomorrow
evening , but betting men are yet a trillo
Llmid , although Hall is slightly a favorite in
; ho wagers that are made. Hall is doing
ittlo work today and it is expected he will
enter the ring weighing about 175 , Fitzsim
mons will bo seven or eight pounds lighter.
Most of the lighters hero pin their faith tote
Hall , becausfj-thoy bellovo ho will bo able to
lilt Fitzslmmons nnd most experts are :
agreed that Fitzsimmons docs not relish
punishment. Fitzsimmons will bo in the
"ty iu the morning.
Hull Is Very CoiiIliltMit.
I had a pleasant chat with Hall and Charlie
Mitchell in their ai rtmcnts at the St.
Charles. There was no one present but John
Kline , Hall's trainer , Charlie Guiislingor ,
manager of the Now Orleans Base Ball club ,
Jack McAulIfTe and myself. Hall and hand
some Charlie , stripped to the buff , lay out
stretched on their respective couches , and
two grander specimens of physical men I'll
venture could not , bo found in a ton days
trip. Hull gossiped in a good naturcd humor
about Omaha , and his three-round sot-to
with .lack Davis at the Grand Opera house
in particular. Ho said Jack was a good man ,
but ho was a product of a bad ago in pugilism
( the hoodlum age ) . A man 2. ) or ! M today
and Davis would bo strutting around in the
guise of an Ed Smith , a Choynski or a Fitz
slmmons. Ho was manifestly pleased when
I told him 1 vus in his corner , and thought
ho would win , and when I said I hoped so
any way ho replied with a laugh :
"Why , Sandy , the winning of this affair is
a matter of the past. All that yet remains
to bo demonstrated is what sort of a beating
I must give Fitzsimmons to convince the
public of this fact and how much of a beat
ing I must tano in return. Oh , yes , I am a
winner , mo boy , sure , eh Charlie J"
" "Ow's that } " quickly responded Mitchell ,
rising to his elbow. "A winner indeed , and
'ore's a pair of 'em , " and ho tapped his
broad chest with hla shapely hand.
Smith mill IHxon Mutulinil.
Howard Haekottof the Now York World
brought with him last night the articles for
the Solly Smith-George Dixon light.
Smith signed them this afternoon In
Harry Weldon's room at the St.
Charles. They call for a finish contest
for fcr ! > 00 a sldo and the biggest purse , the
light to take place not earlier than July 1
and not later than July ! J8 , 18'ji. ;
Steve Brodio , the bridge Jumper , is in at
last. Ho is ono of tlio best known sports in
the world and is backing Hall at S.VX ) to f 150
for all ho can get , whlcn is not much.
Gus .Sehmol/ the Chattanooga ball team
and big Catcher Jantzen called on mo today.
Hall is a slight favorite In the betting to
night. At the pool rooms today the state
ment is made that very little money Is being
posted on the lighters. Eighty-live to 100
and 17 to ifl ) wcro offered on Hall , making
him still the favorite in the betting , and it
looks as If ho would go to the post as first
ehoico. Ninety-live to 100 and 1'J ' to 20 are
the llpures on Fltzsimmons.
Kd Smith , who slaughtered big Joe God-
dard , has como and gone. Ho was followed
about the streets all day yesterdny , until
train tlmo. He was the bootblack's hero.
Just before boarding the sleeper with his
brother Paddv , ho said to Billy Madden :
"No , I'll not light Goddard again till ho
pees and'lloks some ono in my class. 1 want

NEW YOIIK , March 7. The eyes of the base
ball world will bo centered upon Now York
during the week of tbo spring meeting of
the National leuguo , which begins at the
Fifth Avenue hotel today. The meeting
may last several days , for moro Important
work has to bo done than at any previous
meeting held In years.
The clubs will make n bolter financial
showing than has been the case slnco the
outbreak of tbo brotherhood. Even then
the New York club was firmly established ,
nnd its finances are again in good shape ,
About fJO.OOO of the $ . " 0,000 of bonds
issued by the club .has boon sub
scribed by the local stockholders. The only
club which showed financial distress was
that of Louisville , but the Kcntucklans have
gone down into their pockets nnd can now
show a bold front. They have secured new
grounds. The schedule will bo the last
thing to bo adopted. Active work on the
proiwscd changes In tbo playing rules may
not got under way before Wednesday. Well
informed critics nnd players will bo Invited
into the meeting to give their ideas on
changes. Messrs. Byrne , Husscll nnd Von
dcr Aho , committee on rules , have aprceil
upon a report , but several alterations and
amendments may bo made. Everybody ad
mits that the pitchers become too con-
spicuous and that tbo autocrat of the dia
moiul must go back. The pitcher's art has
advanced more rapidly than that of the
batsman , nnd as lively batting Is ono of the
chief charms of the game the pitcher must
bo handicapped. The committee's idea Is to
put back the pitcher to the center of the
diamond , or sixty-three foot from the homo
plate. This would make the pitcher deliver
the ball about eight feet farther than under
the old ruins.
iTho change will play havoc with many of
5tho veteran pitchers and it will be the
means of bringing now faces to the front.

Nr.w Oni.CAXs , La. , M.irch 7. Just what
jonds of friendship exist between Charlie
Mitchell and Jim Hall it Is dinicutt to tell ,
jut there Is one thing certain , nnd that Is
.hat Mitchell has a marvelous nnd unac
countable control over Hall.
Hall has taken to Mitchell nnd has utterly
:1 : Is reganled his faithful trainer , John Kline ,
who has tolled so faithfully with him and
has brought him to lib present magnificent
condition. This chnngo took place today.
Hall was all right this morning and took n
ten-nillo walk before breakfast. When they
went out the second tlmo they were accom
panied by Mitchell. They took the
carriage and drove out several
nl'es and took their oxcroiso In walk-
ill ? and running. Mitchell was in no such
condition as the other two , and Kllno set'
the pace so rapid that ho soon made Mitchell
look llko a fool and had him panting. When
they returned to the city , Mitchell , Hall and
Dr. Ordwny of Boston Jumped into n carriage
and drove hastily away , Hall saying they
were only going to dinner , Kline had Hall's
work laid out for him in the afternoon , but
in the nbsenco of Hall , the necessary training
liad to be postponed.
At (1:10 ( : this evening Hall had not returned
and Kllno could not account for the trcnl-
menl accorded to him nnd wns very much
wrought up over the occurence.

They nro more sought nftcr nt present than
any set of men in this land of prohibition
and drug stores. People talto off their bats
to them , say pretty tilings about them ( to
their faces ) and pat them on the back if they
are allowed to como sufllclcntly close to do
so. And to what Is duo this apparent popu
larity of this Inner circle of the party In the
stale ? Simply because they are the people
with a pull , the men who have their hands
on ovcry one of the sixteen hun
dred and odd postofflces in the
state , n machine that has secured n
mortgage on every federal oftlco in Iowa.
The efforts of this committee to secure a firm
erip on tbo patronage of the now administra
tion makes an interesting tale.
Whnt Thry Arn ItcNolvod Upon.
Two weeks after Cleveland was elected the
state central committee met in DCS Moines.
It I was a secret gathering. Several demo
crats from different parts of the slalo were
requesled to bo present at the meeting , or
conference as it was called. While these
democrats are all prominent In the party , It
1f 1 nevertheless a fact that they are all on
1n friendly terms with the committee , forming
n sort of nn auxiliary to the committee Itself.
A resolution which read about llko this was
Every strictly local otlico In Iowa shall bo
disposed of In the following manner : The ns-
pllcant forotlleo must receive the enclor.iomont
of the member of the committee who rapro-
huntxsald apnlleant'.s district , tojtother with
the endorsement of the defeated candidate for
congress In the name district , liofore hu shall
receive thn endorsement and recognition of
tills committee. In east- the said committeeman -
man nnd thuHnld defeated candidate for congress -
gross are unable to npruo upon a candidate ,
then the matter shall be referred to a committee -
too of arbitration , this committee to be com
posed of.1. ,1. Klchardson , Iowa's member of
the national committee ; \V. I. Hayes , lowa'.s
only democratic rorforcssiimn , and Charles
I'uflcn , chairman of the state central commit
tee. The decision p ( the board of arbitration
to be llnal.
There was some' discussion as to what was
meant by the lerni ' 'strictly ' local ofllco. " and
it was explained that it Included all post-
ofllees and pension 'examiners. There was
not much dobate. on the resolution , and it
wns eventually pjisscd with scarcely a pro
test. ' ;
III the Olllcn ISrnkcriigu ISimlncns.
The state central committee has gone Into
the ofltco brolccrtt/rd'buslness , by what au
thority nero but the members of it know.
Blank applications for postofllces have been
printed by the cominittee , together "with a
circular of instruction. These circulars
reveal the comirjltjtjee's mode of operation.
The circular starts , off with an account
of the DCS [ Mjjliicli conference : . It
then goes on. to .tell of the neces
sity of securing 'flic' signature of .tbo
committecman for tbo district in which'tho
applicant resides , together With tbo signa
ture of the defeated candidate "for con
gress. When the candidate secures these
ho niust send his petition , with such other
names as ho has gotten in his town , to tbo
chairman of the state central committee.
The chairman will bring the paper before
the committee , and it will bo signed by
every member of that body. Then , the
petition having been compared , it will bo
laid away till nil the applications of can
didates for federal jobs in Iowa have been
received. When they are all in tbo com-
mltleo will dolegalo ono of Its members to
carry them to Washington , where they
will bo presented In a bunch to the presi
dent. . The circular concludes with the in
junction to send In a liberal amount to pay
the expenses of the delegate while ho Is in
Washington keeping an eye on the applica
Ilowliif , " In SiihinUBlon to the Autocrats.
Four-flfths of the postoflices in the state
have been dealt out by the committee In this
manner. The committee bus held Iwo meet
ings since the first conference for no other
reason in the world than to sign petitions
and to look after the business of the broker
age oflice. Every meeting has been attended
by swarms of applicants. They como from
every corner of tbo state. There have been
pitiful and sensational scenes at these gath
erings. The sad part of it has been to
witness white haired men who
have been life-long democrats , bowing
with bared heads before the committee mem
bers , begging for recognition that they
might got n postofllco at some cross roads.
The sensational part of it has been the bitter -
tor denunciation by prominent members of
tbo party of the committee's methods in
usurping , as they put It , the federal appoint
ments. An Alton man appeared before the
last mooting of the committee. Palo nnd
trembling with rngo ho shook his linger in
the faces of the members and declared that
their action with reference to the offices had
mndo Iowa republican next fall by not less
Ilnvo Done Great Dnmngo ,
The committee has simply played havoc
with the party throughout the stato.
There are bitter lights for post fllces
everywhere. The committee endorsement
of a candidate does not , of cout so , doter nny
other democrat from being n candidate and
getting up a petition , though the way things
are run ut present ho docs not stand much
of a show of coming out victorious , A fair
sample of the rows that are going on every
where Is found nt Carroll. Senator Rich , a
good and old democrat , wants to bo post
master , Ho Is the choice of four-llfths of
the democrats of his city. Committecman
Tnylor , however , who represents HIch's dis
trict , refused to sign the hitter's petition ,
favoring Editor PoivBrs , Powers having se
cured the Indorsement and also that
of Kyan , thp > i defeated candi
date for conprcss , of course
sprung at once jntp , popularity with the
state central committee , and his papers re
ceived the signatures 6f every member of it.
And hero Is whcroc the funny part of it
comes In. Taylor llyfes at Algona , which is
fully n hundred mljtjs from Carroll , as fur
nwny from the latter place as Is DOS Moines.
Yet Taylor , nn utteij stranger In Carroll ,
goes there and piclt qut a postmaster which
the majority of tho'people of the place do not
wnut. This merely shows how the commlt-
teo't. system works' ! Cases exactly similar
to this ono nro to bafdund In a dozen cities of
the state. In many Instances the committeeman -
man and the defeated.vandlUuto for congress
have been unable togroo \ , and this has re
sulted in much troub A , Cases of this kind
will have to bo taken before the board of
arbitration nnd will In the end , of course , bo
decided In favor of the machine man.
But the committee's greed for ofllco docs
not end hero. Not only has it grabbed off all
the minor places , which It Intends to deal
out to friends , but , with very few excep
tions , every member of the organization has
picked out a nice fat job for himself. All the
good juicy plums that Cleveland will have to
hand out iu Iowa the committee members
.think will go to them.
Edward Hunter of Dea Motncs , ono of the
leading members of the organization , and the
man who , In fact , it is claimed , originated
the brokerage scheme , is out for the Des
Moines postofllco , one of the best paying fed
eral places In Iowa. Of course ho has got
the support of the entire central committee
and the auxiliary members mentioned in the
fore part of this dispatch , and If this counts
for anything ho will probably bo appointed.
Then there Is Chairman Fullen. He is a
candidate for UnltedStotes attorney for tbo
southern district Ho has used the lullti-
once his | H ) ltlon gives him for nil It Is worth
and has got qulto a formidable backing.
1I ullen 1 Is n country lawyer nnd Is noted only
1i I that ho Is chairman of the central i-oin-
mlttpo. i But thn mutual admlrutlninsoelety
has 1i 1 struck n sung In this nttorneyshlp. The
member i ! } of it ur. uinrtlu to ngreo
as to who should hnvn the job ,
Half I of them are for Fullen ami the 'other
half 1t 1 nro for K. W. Currle , also n member of
the 1I state committee , representing the
Eighth I district. Ho Is maklinr u hard fight
for f the place coveted by lyullcn. The rivalry
for f the committee's support has thus far
I een friendly. Hood democrats out In the
state have. Iwen praying that they would got
Into I n quarrel among themselves , and while
the scrapping was on those on the outside
might : grab off a job or two. But at present
there Is nothing to Indicate that the affair
will develop Into n real row.
Commissioner Stamm of the Fourth dis
trict wants to bo United States bank ox-
nmlncr. The committee Is with him , of
Commlttecmnn Seeverof the Sixth district
Is working , with the committee's assistance ,
for tbo Osltnloosa poatoftlcc. Chase of the
Mnth is hustling after the postonico nt At
lantic. Commltteeman Ltscbor already has
n mortgage on thepostofllco at lavcn | > ort.
Commltteeman Uunii. the state oil Inspector ,
will probably bo content with his present
ofllco. Eight of the elevencommltlecmcn , It
will bo seen , therefore , are out of ofllccs.
The three others have not been heard from
publicly us yet , biiUho rank and lllo say they
have probably got tholr eyes on a consulate
or something of that sort. And so the light
for offices goes on.
LIFE IN CHINA.
IVoitlliir I'hii-K'H of i\liicnco : Scon liy a
llov. Thomas Marshall , Held secretary of
the Presbyterian Board of Foreign Missions ,
lectured last ovenlilg at Young Men's
Christian association hall on "Travels In the
Chinese Empire. "
The speaker began by telling of the an
tiquity of the empire. Its history begins in
the tlmo of the ninth chapter of Genesis. It
was an ancient empire when the foundations
of Home were laid. Tlio children over seem
old , and every child born is actually recorded
as older than it really 1 . For example , if a
child is born on December ! ' Ul it is
said to bo 1 year .old. On Now Years
day another year is added. Thus , when It
It but two days old it Is said to bo two years
old. Every one's ago is computed from
.lanuarv 1. Canton Is. ono of tbo largest
cities in China and is better kept than
others. It has what is called a boat popula
tion of 150,000 , Boats are arranged in the
river so as to form perfect streets. They
touch each other and their prows form side
walks. They contain one , two nnd three
rooms , the back room being reserved ns a
Jos.s liouso and It contains the images of
worship. Upon those boats thousands of
persons pass their lives.
The "temple of horrors" in Canton repre
sents the Buddhist's idea of hell. Here ono
sees figures rcprc. ontini ! persons tortured by
sawing , by roasting , by grinding , by boilinir.
Ono llguro represents a man writhing in
chains , another ono who is undergoing a
change from a human being to an ox.
In the way of machinery ono sees nothing
modern. There is no wind , water , steam
nor electric power. Human and dumb brute
force is the motive power. Any change from
this is resisted , the people arirulng that the
introduction of machinery would deprive
them of a livelihood. All the people nro
grouped into families and implicitly obey the
respective heads of tbeso families. ' 1 iieso
clans owe obedience to the mandarin , nnd ho
in turn to the emperor.
The Chinese all square their 'accounts nnd
pay their debts at the end of each year , oven
if they have to pawn their valuables to do so.
On the 1st of January nobody I in debt , and
all ledgers might as well bo burned up.
There are no bachelors. Every man is ex
pected to roar a family. Bachelorism is con
sidered as weakening to the empire. The people
ple meet once a year and burn mccnso lo iho
memory of their ancestors.
At Hong Kong children dying under 4
years of ago are not buried , but are
thrown away to bo devoured by tigers.
To have all girls in a family is
considered a calamity , and oftentimes one or
moro are tortured and basely put to death
witli the false and superstitious idea that no
more female children will be born. If there
Is tiut ono boy in the family the parents are
constantly in fear that ho will bo taken
away by death. They undertake to deceive
death by putting rings In bis ears , thinking
ho will thus be mistaken for a girl.
At Shanghai are what are known as oaby
lowers. These lowers are about fifteen feet
high and lifteeii feet in diameter. Thcr are
made of brick or stone and have but ono
opening. This opening is at the ton , and
into it are thrown all babies that die. This.
city Is the dirtiesl , filthiest spot on earth.
Hero ono sees lepers everywhere , some
with their feet or hands gone , lying upon
mats in the streets , and others running after
ono and becging for alms. The place seems
like a very hell.
Journeys into the Interior nro by means of
mules. Two mules are placed sldo by side
with a space of eight feet between them.
Poles are stretched across and n hammock-
Hko arrangement suspended from them. In
this the passenger Is carried. There are no
roads , the mules following paths wherever
they go. The speaker endured four weeks
of such travel.
The people all llvo In communities as a
protection against robbers. Each town Is
surrounded by a wall and has a fort on some
The emperor has not until recently al
lowed his subjects to see him , When ho
emerges from his palace and goes throuch a
particular street It means death to anyone
who looks upon him , Iho idea being that ho
is the Deity.
After describing the great China wall , tbo
tombs of the Ming emperors , and particu
larly that of Yung Lo , the speaker turned to
many minor customs in common life.
