Boston, April 21. Tho announce
ment of tho final offer of tho California
Athletic Club to mako a pnrso of $20,
000 for Sullivan and Jackson was re
ceived by tho champion without especial
interest. John's mind was made up
long ago not to fight Jackson unless
a phenomenal purse was guaranteed.
The offer of the Callfoinlans to mako
tho purse $20,000 Is. theieforc, en
tirely satisfactory to him. and although
lie declines to day to talk, yet It Is well
known to Ills Intimates hero that ho will
fight Jackson on tho tcims named.
"Within a day or two John so expressed
However, what Sullivan Is chiefly
concerned in at tho picsont tlmo Is tho
final disposition of his case before the
Mississippi court. He said yesterday
that ho wanted to get that mailer out
of tho way beforo ho talked fight with
anybody. Ho said that any'mau of
common sense can understand how tho
case in Mississippi might be turned
against him should he appear in tho
newspapers as making ncgatlatlotrs for
another prizo fight to a finish, even
though tho scene was In another State.
Tho Mississippi case is on for Juno 23,
so that until after that dato tho big fel
low Is not likely to mako formal reply
to the California offer.
This much Is-certain, John wants to
meet Jackson and best him, as ho feels
moro than confident ho will do, and
then ictire fiom the ring. Tlio
reiterated statement that John is under
ticatmcnl by a Dr. Glbbs to train oil Iris
flesh was for the second tlmo denied by
Sullivan to-day. The publication of an
alleged course of diet Is tbc most absurd
chapter of tho romanco perpetrated to
advertise an obscuro practitioner.

offering to spar Bill Clancy off Malno

Eyrnml, the Paris Terror, Com
New York, April 21. Coroner Wood
of Port Richmond, Staten Island, Is
fully satisfied that tho mysterious stran
ger who committed suicide by shooting
himself on tho "Willow Brook road last
Thuuday, was Michael Eyraud, tho no
torious stranglcr of Paris, who has
evaded capture for tho murder of
Deputy Marshal Gouffo for almost a
year. Tho body of the suicldo is
identical In every important detail with
Eyraud, but the lack of papers on the
corpse pi events absolute Identification.
Tho murder of Deputy Marshal
Goufl'c was one of tho most sensational
and awful in its details that ever startled
gay Pails. Ho had under his protec
tion Qabriclle Bonrpard. a young wo
man who boasted more of her beauty
than her morals. She loved Michael
Eyraud. a criminal, and they plotted to
sccuie GouiTo's death and his money.
Gabricllo had Gouffe call at her anirt-
menls, where Eyraud was concealed.
Eyrnml clutched tho Marshal's neck
w llh his big powerful hands aud, Ga
briello assisting, slowly strangled him
to death. They put tho coipse in a
tiunk, nnd after traveling about with
It. left it in a descited spot In a forest,
where It was found.
It has a mysleiy which might
novcr have been solved If Gabriello and
Eyraud had not quaicllcd. They did
this In San Francisco. Gabiielle re
turned to Parfs and told the story to tho
prefect of police. She is now in
prison. Detectives traced Eyraud to
New York, where ho lived until Match
5 under an assumed namo in French
hotels. Then he disappeared and left
no trace behind. Tho French detectives
declared he had gone to Central or
South America, and went back toPaii3.

It would pcihnps be dlfilcult to con
ceive a moro Interesting contest than
that now piogrcsslng In tho popular
branch of Congress for the place on the
all-powerful Committee on Rules left
vacant by the decease of cx-Spcakcr
Randoll. This commlttco of five, com
posed of the Spcnkcr and his two lieu
tenants on the floor nnd the two lcadeis
c f the mlnoilty, Is In many lcspccls tho
chief commlllco.of the House. A place
on it is sought even moro eagerly than
n place on tho two great ptlvllegcd
committees of "Ways and Means nnd
Appropriations. To bo one of the Com
mittee on Rules Is to bo a leader, and
to havo that fact acknowledged by the
"When Speaker Reed named his Com
mittee on Rules ho chose the chairmen
of his two chief committees, Messrs.
McKlnley and Cannon, as his' paity
colleagues, and the two Democratic ex
Speakcrs.Mcssrs. Randall and Caillsle to
lepicscnl tho opposition. Tho death of
the former opens the way to another of
the minority to secure a beat among this
select junta. There Is no nvowed can
didate for the honor. Just as no self-
respecting person would push himself
as an applicant for the position of pri
vate secretary to another, so no member
of the Housu can become an open can
didate lor tho vacancy on this important
committee. This, however, docs not
debar one's fiicnds from pushing one.
Thus, for instance, tho paitlcular
coterio which looks to ex-Speaker Car
lisle and Mr. Mills for guidance at once
assumed that Mr. Mills would bo given
the place, because, forsooth, as Mr.
Carlisle's chairman of Ways and Means
he was formerly a member also of the
Committee on Rules. But there aro
many signs that the Democratic mem
bers of tho House nio growing weary
of the nilo of Carlisle, Mills, and
Breckinridge. Tho yoke of their thral
dom galls them, and they seek to throw
The candidate of these Democratic
Congicssmen, who do not believe, or pro
fess to believe, in the all-comprehensive
wisdom of the Kentucky-Texas combi
nation, is Mr. Cilsp of Georgia. He is
an able man, who manages to keep his
bend cool in the hottest of times. Ho
is, undoubted!, the personal choice of
Speaker Reed. But even Speaker Reed
Is only an autocrat in name, nnd the
name given by tho opposition. Desnlti
himself ho must consider tho wishes,
or at least the cxpiessions, of the gen
tlemen who mako up the mlnoilty.
Should he In this matter ignore or act
in opposition to the expressed wishes of
tbc minority, he might find things very
unpleasant for himself when he comes
to be in the minority, which may be at
the next Congiess. .
So he hesitates to act. Waiting for
nn nuthoiitnlivo cxpiesMon from the
mlnoilty, he Is losing his opportunity
of independent ncltoh. Undeistandlng
Hint as between Crisp and Mills tho
Spcnkcr would, for pcrsonnl reasons,
pei hups, take tho former, tho Carlisle
Mills faction is putting Mr. Blount ot
Georgia forwaid. They do not do this
because they love Blount more, but
because they are afraid of Crisp. He
is n man of real ability, and, for htm to
be put foiwaul now, might bo to put
him in somebody's way at the next
Congress, should it be Demociatic.
Mr. Blount's own claim seems to be that
bo Is tho Democratic father of the
House, but, as It never availed him
when the Democrats controlled the
House, Iheic appears to be no good
reason why It should stand liliu In stead
The fight between tho Demociatic
factions will be watched with interest,
the more that it is referced by such a
competent person ns Speaker Reed. It
would bo notewoithy indeed If he were
obliged to decide against his own
wishes. At any late it would ailoid
him n new sensation.

ERRORS AND OMISSIONS.
OBJECT TO THEM.
Tho 1'rlntcd Testimony Attrlhnlod lo
tho Jhrco Dlll .Service Polks Said

Intcstlcatlnn In Order.
Tho Houso Committee on tho Reform
Iu the Civil Service, Investigating the
charges ngnlnsl tho present Civil Scr
vlco Commission, continued tlio Investi
gation to day, nftcr a lapso of weeks.
The chairman laid befoio the com
mlttco a letter signed by all thico of the
Civil Scrvlco Commissioners, staling
that they had examined the copies oT the
testimony taken In Die Into Investiga
tion. This examination, they say, re
veals such a multitude of glaring errors,
often of vital consequence, that thoy
feel obliged lo protest against being
held in any way responsible
for many of tho statements
which they tuu lepieserrtcd as
moking in tho printed copies of the
testimony. These errors and omissions,
they explain, aro so numerous on al
most every page of tho matter thoy
havo examined that it Is out of tins
question to indicate them in any writ
ten communication. Whole sen
tences nnd groups of sentences
have been omitted. Others havo
been transposed so ns to make
nonsense. Others havo been taken
down in a form which makes them in
comprehensible, and In other cases
words havo been Inserted or omitted
words like "no" or "not" so as to ex
actly reverse the meaning of the sen
tence". Under theso ciicumstanccs, the Com
mlssioncis say, they must positively de
cline to admit that this testimony, as it
appears, Is the testimony as thoy gave
it. In conclusion, thoy request tliat a
copy of this letter be printed and ap
pended to all copies of tlio testimony
which may be sent out.
After the letter had been icad and
there had been sonic expression of
views by the dlffcicnt members of the
committee on the-subject, the Commis
sioners took tho printed testimony and
pointed out a number of mistakes.
The matter was then debated to a
great length and a resolution offered by
Mr. Bultciworth was finally adopted,
providing that the Commissioners and
other witnesses, In whose testimony,
as reported, cirors have been discov
ered, bo permitted to lcpoit proper cor
rections to the sub-commlttcc hcieto
fore appointed to revise and compile the
testimony for printing.
A general expicssionof views showed
that the parties inteicsted objected to
proceeding, ns was pioposcd, with the
closing niguments until the testimony
had been collected.
Tho committee allowed the objection
nnd adjourned, subject to the call of
Befoio ndjournine: the committee de
c'ded to limit the closing argument to
four hours, the time to bo equally di
vided. The next meeting will probably take
place tho latter part of next week.
