pistol, which ho had left thcro to get

cartridges wo went back to McCor
mack's and got moro to drink. Wo
drank a drink called 'Gllmorc,' which
tastes like elder. I don't know what
it's mado of, but I do know It sets your
head to wandcrln'. Wo went over to
Skclly's plnco and stayed thero somo
tlmo until I felt pretty drunk. I did
not know anything, nnd wo started to

don't know why I shot it or what for.
Tho whisky was In my hend, and
I don't know anything about It. A f tor

Sullivan docs not go over tho night
beforo the fight. Mr. Hcnaud has re
ceived such encouraging news from tho
North that ho has changed his views ns
to tho crowd nt the ring, nnd now ex
pects 2,000 persons. This will neces
sitate thirty-five cars, which will go out
In three trains, ono nt 4 o'clock In the
morning, lho other two at 0 o'clock.

hero to survey tho field In ndvancc.
Among the arrivals to-day wcro twenty

In lho programme. Captain Jnmloson

hnvo had a wide and vnrled experience

mented by forty olllccrs from New Or

men, all men of nerve and spirit. There
will bo two to each car to prevent any
toughs sneaking in and to keep order at

mado to deter tho roughs from going to

teel crowd theto. Thcro Is somo doubt
whether Kllrajn will bd hero on Friday
ns orlidnnlhv nronoscd. ns n illsnniidi
was received liero today saying that liipj
wouiu com y in iuo tram uuo rwiuruayj;
It hns flunlly been determined by his
representatives here that ho shall ac
cept the offer' of tho South
ern Athletic Club, practicing nt
their club room and boarding
no.xt door, where n suite of rooms have
been fitted up especially for his benefit.
On Sunday night ho Is to go down to
the car especially fitted up for him and
rot Iro to rest early. His car will be
hitched on tho club train next morning
nnd tnken to tho llug without awaking
him, ns be Is snld to bo a very heavy
sleeper, and ho will not lcavo until ho
.walks out of It dressed, ready for tho
fight. Sullivan Is to lodgo nt tho Span
ish foit on Saturday night In room
filled up for him lust over tho Casino.
Sunday night It 1st- proposed that ho
shall lake his car for tho bntllo ground
and lay nt n side track, wlllilu a short
Ulstanto of It, whero ho will sleep
quietly there until next morning, thus
nvoidfng tdo caily rising or any exhaus
tion from n trip ou tho'cars. Tho final
decision lu this matter will rest with
his trainers. Thero Is not much stock
taken hero in the stories of u hippo
diome, nnd tho general belief among
tho many spotting men nlrcady congre
gated hcio is Hint It will bo n light, and
a tfpmro one, with tho result largely
depending on Kllrnln's stylo ot fighting.
In this connection tho remarks of Kll
rnln's repicsentatlvcs hero aro generally
consldeicd as significant, for, .while
they have no authority to speak for
him, It Is probablo that they havo somo
Idea of the tactics ho will pursue.
Mlko Donovan says his man. will fol
low Sullivan's lead of fast lighting, if
tho champion so leads off, or play a
walling gamo if Sullivan Is slow,
Finnk Stevenson declares that Kllrnln
Is not going to stand up straight and
let Sullivan hit him Just because he can
lilt best In that way. Pcoplo may talk
about Kllraln's imitating Mitchell's
tactics, said he, but that will mako no
dlffctcnce, nnd will not deter lilm
from lighting In tho way that suits him
he'd. The general Impression is that
Sullivan will try n rushing fight and
Kllrnln n wnltlnggninc. Any difficulty
In the ring between the seconds is re
gaulcd as improbable, although Clcary
and Mitchell luito each other so that It
will bo dllllcult to keep them apart.
Somo doubt has arisen ns to tho exact
mratilns: of Utile li of tho London
prlzo i lug rules, which declares that
tho referee shall call liinu at thu expira
tion of thirty seconds, upon which each
man shall walk unaided to Ids own
sldo of tho scratch, tho seconds leaving
It Immediately afterward. Tho doubt
existing Is as to how tho tlmo Is to ho
counted. Donovan thinks It ought to
bo construed to mean thirty seconds
from the Unto tho corner Is reached,
and Harding wiys that ot tho Smith
Kllrnln light this point was argued and
nu ngt cement reached that tho tlmu
should bo from tho moment tho 11 rsl man
reached his corner. This point will be
ro-nrgticd nt tho coining fight, nud u
similar agreement probably icachcd.
Thcro Is no betting here, although thcro
Is plenty of money hero to bet, hut tho
two factions cannot agree as to terms.

of Lako Is ono of tho many men whom
lho nntl-Trlnnglo wing of tho Clnn-na-Gael
believe have been silenced forever
by tho murderous conspirators of
the Sulllvan-Bolaud-Fcely Bcctlon.
O'Cleary disappeared obottt twelve

senco wns unaccountable, and but few
even of tho Cronln faction of tho
Clamua-Gael suspected foul play.

In tho confidence of .tho executive, was
dispatched to Europe on netlvo scrvlco.
During his absenco It was given out by
tho Trtanglers that O'Cleary was In
California, tho fact being that he was
in Amsterdam, from which point .ho
conducted his "operations." O'Cleary
returned from his last ttlp about
eighteen months ago, and is said to
havo been nt that tlmo in a
statu ot nbsolute poverty. All
bis funds wcro exhausted aud ho Is
represented ns having been lu a most
deplorable condition. Ho made appli

no attention wns paid to him. O'Cleary
beeamc-denunclatory, nnd raised quite
n row in the organization over his treat
ment. Six months later ho disappeared,
and till tho efforts of his, friends to lo
cate him ever since have been fruitless.

What I'liiinhlng Inspoctor ltohliuon
Nays About lho Mutter Tho I.one
IWlilgo l'urtly lo HlHiiie Ail Old
Suggestion of Governor Shephorit'K. ,
Jinny complaints havo been mado ljy
merchants doing business on lho Avc
nuo between Sixth nnd Ninth street,
on account of the losses sustained by
them nt nearly every largo rainstorm.
They want to know If thcro Is any
remedy, nnd If thero Is ono thoy want
It applied. Tho Hood of yesterday
makes It moto evident than over lli.it
something Is wrong with tho sowcrngo
of ilml part of tho city either lho lnlcta
nro not large enough or the sower pljw
nro not sulllelenl lo carry oft
tho water. ' "The fall here," said
I'lumbliiglnspector ltobcrlsou to-day,
"Is not very great nnd lho How Is conse
quently very slow. Tho onlv rente !y
tliat I can think of Is either' lo raise
tho ground at this point, which wni
Mr. Shepherd's Idea, or construct huge
reservoirs Into which tho overplus of
water might be emptied to he pumped
out nt leisure. Thcso tanks would be
built under tho street, nud duilug
dry seasons might ho kept frco or
water by gates, but during heavy
ruins thcso gates could lie oixmed
nud tho water allowed to run In.
Yes, I think the Long Btldgo Is respon
sible for n good part of tho damage. If
It wero removed lho current would bo
stronger oud thus n freer escape allowed
to Ihc sewers. As It Is, the tides brim?
the accumulations of debris Into tho
sewers, nnd.rcccding, lcavo them choked
up to a greater or less extent. Tho
remedies I havo mentioned aro tho only
ones I can think of, but pcrhap tho
civil engineers of tho city could en
lighten you further."
