It is now pretty well settled that the

equally apparent that tho opposition

The nttendnnco at tho National
Amciiean Woman Suffrage Association
Convention wns very much smaller this
morning than yesterday nnd tho session
was devoted strictly to business. Some
complaint was made of tho acoustic
properties of tho hall, and Miss An
thony, who presided In tho absence of
Mis. Stanton, had to raiso her voice
considerably to moko herself heard.
Thcllistpait of tho session was de
voted to tho reading of State reports.
Mrs. Clara B. Colby, who had been as
signed that task for Nebraska, tho
first on the list, was not present, and so
Sirs. Eugenia B. Farmer was introduced
to tell that the woman suffraga move
ment wns llourlshlngln Kcntucky.whcro
n Stale association and soven auxilia
ries have been organized during the
past year. Miss llarrict Purvis of
Phlladclphlai n daughter of tho well
known abolitionist, Henry Purvis, pre
sented tho leport for Pennsylvania,
which show cd that women nro rapidly
getting into tho good places in that
Mrs. Llllio Dcvercux Blake gave a
chatty nccount of tho progress of tho
movement In Now Yorlc and regretted
that so much opposition is shown there
to matrons in police stations. Tho
women, sho said, wcio determined to
havo representation on the committees
of tho World's Fair, which would bo
hold In Now York.
The venerable Henry B. Blackwell
gavo a full account of tho year's work
in Massachusetts, whicli showed that
the State Association has from 11,000 to
4,000 ruombcrs, and that there Is much
activity in urging woman suffrage. The
growth of public sentiment In tho State
in favor of woman suffrago was, ho said,
f;radual but constant. Miss llatrlctto
t. Shattuck also presented a report for
Massachusetts, showing tho Instruction
of tho woman suffracrlsts of Boston In
civil governments, with a vlow to their
being well equipped for their duties
when thoy becomo fnlMlcdgcd voters.
Mis. Clara A. McDlarmld told of
what tho women of Arkansas are doing
for woman suffrage, interest in which,
she said, was stimulated by monthly
teas. Tho Southern women, shu do
elated, were not apathetic, and only
agitation was needed to stir things up.
Tho report of Wisconsin was pic-
scntcd by ltov. Olympia Brown, tho
first woman clergyman of the United
States. Mrs. Brown spoke with all
the caso of a practiced ministci
nnd told of the dissemination of woman
suffrage litcraturo In Wisconsin. Sho
was vciy simply dtcsscd In black and
had n mildly ministerial appcaraueo
that was quite noticeable. Woman
suffrage, she said, was in the hearts of
the people and they were secretly pray
ing for it.
The routine of the proceedings was
hero broken by a song by Miss Johnson
of South Dakota, a young suffragist,
whoso voice so pleased the audlcnco
that they demanded an encore. For
tills she sang "Tho Augel Came,''
which ptovoked kcaity applause.
"Tho Attitude of this Association to
ward Political Parties" was then dis
cussed, the fiist to lead off being Miss
AHco MoPioklcr of South Dakota,
who concluded that women should
havo a hand In tho management of all
public Institutions, ltov. "Frederick A.
Hinckley of Floicncc, Mass., who
pioclalmcd himself a llcmibllcun mug
wump with Democratic proclivities.
said that the attitude of tho association
should ono of righteous demand upon
all parties and of entangling alliauccs
with none. Tho only way lo hold to
gether, he said, was to maintain simply
tho equnlity of lights of man and
woman and to tako up no other Issue.
Ho instanced the caso of Hhodo
Island, whcio the active part taken by
women in urglni: tho passago of a
prohibitory constitutional amendment
aroused opposition and led to tho de
feat of a woman suffrago amendment
when presented later.
Hon. William Dudley Foulko of In
diana followed In tho same sttain, nnd
urged that the association should
be absolutely non-partisan and stilctly
educational. Ho iccommcnded that
the association should sccmc ns many
men as members ns possible, and should
also seek to show that tho statement
that the great body of women nro Indif
ferent to woman Miflragc is not truo.
"Tho main thing," he concluded, "Is
union In ourpurposo."
Mrs. Shea of Kentucky precipitated
a very lively discussion by rising to pro
test ncainst the frequenoy with which
the old Issuo of abolition has been
brought Into tho papers and discus
sions. "I have como to theso meetings for
four years," she said, "and I havo heard
of John Brown until I am tired of it. I
think wc ought to leave abolition alone.
Wo Southern women don't want li
thrown lit our faces every tlvo minutes.
I think that It would bo only generosity
in tho victors not to keep dragging in
Ihro old issues."
Tills declaration was greeted with
hearty applause, and Miss Anthony
hastened to say that sho considered tho
ciltlclsm, or rebuke, of Mrs. Shea a de
set ved one.
Soino of the others did not tako tho
criticism so kindly, however. Mrs.
IsabcllaBeeolicr Hooker.whoso icmarks
on Tuesday evening wero amoug thoso
rcleirod to by Mrs. Shea, declared that
sho meant no ollenso nud added as an
expression of opinion that she had
thoucht always that the emancipation
of tho colored man, without amnesty for
nil tho whlto men of tho South, was
ouo of the most disgtucoful things over
This was treading on dangerous
ground, and Miss Anthony attempted to
choke her off, but -Mrs. Hooker
went on to say that tho War
Democrats wcio tho grandost men in
tho country. These remarks fucd tho
spirit of Mrs. Julia Ward Howo, who
said the wholo matter was out of order,
nnd then brought in quito Irrele
vantly bomo statements about a fight
with tho Catholics over school affairs in
Mis. Llllio Devctou'c Blako got tho
platfoun to say that sho was a North
Cniolinlanby bitth, and that half her
hcait was Southern and half Northern.
There was danger nt this point of
the convention getting into a wrnuglo
over sectional matters, and Mr. Harry
IS. Blackwell proceeded to pour oil upon
tho troubled waters by switching off
fiom this subject and pointing
out tlio checks which tho woman suf
frage movement had received In tho
new Northwestern States by becoming
connected with tho prohibition cause.
A number of delegates got tho tloor
to bay that tho woman suffragists must
avoid ulllanccs with nuy other party
nnd ovcryhodj appeared to bo agreed
on this point. Matters wero quieting
down, when a woman In tlio nudienco
got up and asked oxcltodly why
Northern women should bo gaggeil
when those from tho South wero al
lowed to say what they pleased. Sho
was beginning some talo of alleged
Southern outrage when Miss Anthonj
hunkdly brought tho meeting to a
closo to avoid another wrauglo.

San Fhancisco, Feb. If. Tho clos
ing rounds of tho Dempsy-McOartliy
fight last night wero savago and bloody.
Dempsoy repeatedly hit his antagonist
In the neck, but tho Australian could
not reach tho Nonpareil. In the
twenty-sixth round Dcmpsey went In
in earnest to llnlsh his man,
and hit him when and where he pleased,
McCarthy staggered around tlio ring
llkon di nnlc en man and Dempsoy con
tinued to rain blows on his neck, but ho
kept his feet until the Nonparlel, In
pity for Ills victim, asked him to
McCaithy rofuscd, and Dempsoy took
him by the arm and led him to his cor
ner amid cheers. In the twenty-sevcuth
round McCarthy was just able to stand,
nnd Dcmpsey knocked him down four
times. McCarthy was led to his corner,
covered with blood, amid loud ciicsto
glvo up tho light.
When McCaithy staggered to tho
ccntro of tho ring for tlio twenty,
eighth round, Dcmpsey implored him
lo give up. Mingled cries of "Knock
him out, Jack," and "Glvo it up, Mc
Carthy," wero heard on all sides. The
Australian refused to acknowledge
himself defeated an Dcmpsey beat him
into his corner nnd sent film down
In a heap. IIo rose and
leaned against the ropes for suppoit.
Dempsoy walked up to llnlsh him, but
instead stepped up to tho lcfcrco nud
declared he hail not tho heart to punish
the man any further. Paddy Gorman,
McCnithy's second, then broko Into tho
ring, diagged his man Into his corner
anu refused to permit him to stay In tho
fight any longer. Dempsoy was for
