George Prancis Train on His Globe-Trotting
New York, May 19. Citizen George
Francis Train came in on the Etrutia this
morning, sixty days from Tacoma, Wash.,
on his trip around the world. He has
beatenall globe-circling records so sound
ly that he thought lie could afford to take
a day off in town today. He will resume
his journey at G o'clock; tomorrow night

where he will take the Chicago & North

point, next Saturday at noon, thus com

and three-fourth days. "The Citizen" i

5s now having his revenge out of the nov
elist for lMiviuc: stolen from him the idea
of the novel, "Around the World in Eighty
"That was my idea," said he. "I went
around the world in 1870 in eighty days,
and Jules Yerne caught Tip the idea- and
made a fiction of it without giving me
credit. But where's his eighty days now?"
Citizen Train is travelling around the
world at the expense of the hustling young
nry of Tacoma, which is enjoying a boom
just at present and hopes to attract atten
tion by Train's exploits.
The idea was "The Citizen's." He wrote
from Boston proposing it, and Tacoma
raised $4,000 to start him off. S. W. Wall,
editor of the Tacoma Ledger, accompanied
him. They left Tacoma, March 18, at G
o'clock in the morning upon the Canadian
Pacific steamer Abyssinia for Yokohoma.
The Etruria was met at G o'clock this morn
ing by the tug Devoo witli some of
"The Citizen's" friends aboard. Among
them were Milton C. Iioch,- general
eastern passenger agent of the New
York Central; H. A. Gross, general cust
om passenger agent of the Chicago A;
North westorn road; E. D. Harrington,
passenger agent of the same road; J. M.
Miller, who represented Tacoma, and re
porter. They had a permit to take "The
Citizen" off, and they got him at a quarter
after 0 o'clock. Train was jubilant when
lie caught sight of the tug. He waved a
huge helmet and shouted to hi- friends
that he was not going to stay in town an
hour, and that a $0,000 special train must
PtaVt westward with him at once. A good
many passengers leaned over the steamer's
rail and shouted good bye to him as he
climbed down the side into the tug.
"This is very thoughtful," said the "Citi
zen," shaking hands with himself heartily
for every one of the party that met him.

CAN NOT BECOME A LAWYER.
SAX Fraxcisco, Cal., May 19. Hong
Yen Chang is an intelligent Chinaman, 6
a ear-, of age, who studied two years at
Yale college and graduated at the Colum
lia law school. He was naturalized in
1SS7 at Poughkeepsie, N. Y., and
admitted to the bar by the New
York court of appeals. Coming here
the courts would not admit him
to practice, and notwithstanding all the
evidence and eloquence Chang brought to
lear on 1 he case he will not be allowed to
practice in California. By an "act to cor
lect errors and supply omissions in the re
a i-ed statutes," passed February IS, 1S7.",
the provision governing such cases as
(hangs was amended so as to limit the
light of naturalization to "aliens being
free white persons, and to those of
African nativity and descent."' It
lias been held by the federal courts
that Mongolians "are not entitled to
be admitted as citizens and the court here
does not doubt the correctness of the ruling.
Then, by section 24 of the act of May li,
3SS2, court are expressly forbidden to
naturalize natives of China. Congress
alone has the power under the constitu
tion to decide who is entitled to citizen
ship, hewe the certificate granted by the
New York courts were issued without
nuthoritv and are void. The decision is
signed bv Justices Fox, McFarlaud,
Beaty and Sharptein.
It is probable that Chang will appeal to
the United States supremo court.

To the emaciated and debilitated invalid
is the sense of returning health and
strength produced by Hostetter's Stomach
Bitters. When that promoter of vigor is
tested by persons in feeble health, its re
storative and vitalizing potency soon
evinces itself in improved appetite, diges
tion and nightly repose, the sole conditions
under which strength and nerve quietude
is vouchsafed to the human system. A
gain in flesh of course ensues upon the re
storation and assimilation. As surely as
winter follows the fall of the leaf, does
disease shadow the footsteps of declining
strength, when the premature decadence
of vitality is not arrested. Marasmus,
consumption and other wasting maladies
are prompt to jaste n upon the enfeebled.

Ed Smith Stands Up Before the Colored
Chicaoo, 111., May 19. Six thousand
people tonight witnessed a rattling five
lound match with four ounce gloes be
tween Peter Jackson, the colored Aus
tralian champion who is to. fight John L.
Sullivan, and Ed Smith, the champion
of Colorado. Much interest was
taken in the question of Smith's
ability as against Jackson, owing to the
act that the colored man had been trained
by Sullivan's noted helper, Muldoon, the
wrestler, and to the further fact that
Smith recently knocked out Mike Cleary
in one round. Smith made a decidedly
good showing against the big colored man,
standing up the five rounds without suf
fering a knock out. Both men were groggy
when the combat ended. Muldoon offers
to back Smith for 5.000 to a finish fight
against any man in the 'world, barring
Sullivan, McAuhffe and Jackson.
