RATTLING COCKINQ-MAIN IN DOVER.
Deadbam Defeats Hnflblk County In Five
(incur, to tot world.1
Bostok, Nov. 20. The bird fanciers of
Dedham, tho shiro town of Norfolk,
and sporting men representing tho
County of Suffolk repaired quietly
to a seoludod spot in the Town of
Dover yesterday afternoon. When the
carriages containing tho ocoupants stopped
at the place, of whioh tho "tip" had been
given, about thirty-five well-known sports
r'steppod out." Several of them carriod
queer looking bags. Onco upon a timo they
might have contained moal, porhaps potatoes
or corn, but to thoso present the contents of
each wero no mystery, as It was
known that each bag .oontalnod a woll
trained cook. Entering the barn whero a
neat pit had boon previously arranged, tho
sports discarded their heavy Coats, and those
representing Dedham and those Boston re
paired to respoctive corners and eagerly
watched the heeling of tho birds. A popular
sporting man of Boston, "hoeled" ior tho
owners of the birds representing the "Hub,"
whilo a well-known fancier from an adjoin
ing town " hcelod " for Dedham.
Tho first battle was between a black-rod
from Dedham and a brown-red from Boston,
each weighing 4 pounds 6 ounces. This fight
was for $25 a side. The Dedham bird was a
favorite from the start and won in 2 minutes.
Tho Dedham bird suffered no injury and
was immediately pitted against a 4 pound G
ounce muff from Boston. Boston men put
their bets on tho muff, but in five minutes
the Dedham brown red had won its second
victory. This battle was also for $25 a Bide,
and considerable money exchanged hands.
Tho noxt bird shown up was a black rod
representing Boston and a bird of tho same
color ropresonting Dedham. Each bird
tipped the scales at 4 pounds 2 ounces. This
battle was for $25 a sido and was a hard con
tested fight. The Dedham bird won after
battling 25 minutes.
The next battle was between a 4 pound 10
ounce black from Dedham and a black red
from Boston of tho same weight. This battle
wa& for $50 a side. Tho Dedham bird won,
and as its handler took it up from the floor it
gave a prolonged crow.
Everything so far was in favor of Dedham,
and Boston naturally felt diseonaolate, as the
main had now been lost to Dodhom, as only
another battle was to be fought.
In this battle Dedham pitted a birch-back,
weight six pounds, and Boston a black red
the same weight. This battle was of short
duration, the Dedham bird winning in about
Tho battle was for $25 a side.
Dedham was jubilant over the five succes

Tho return of Dr. Nevin to his church of

day, has loft, a vacancy in tho Board of
tho now Cathedral. A Woiild roportor
callod on Bishop Potter nt tho Granada,
and asked If Dr. Novinu position hod been
"No," said tho Bishop, "Dr. Noviu's work
in Rome is such that ho can probably loave
it noxt May, and return hero to look after tho
interests of tho Cathedral again. I havo not
had timo to look over tho notes which the
Doctor loft with mo. but everything Is going
on satisfactorily. Exactly how much the
contributions amount to up to tho protient I
cannot toll you."
"Havo you Bottled on any definlto plan for
the Cathedral f "
" No. I hopo soon to call togothcr tho
Committeo on Building, and then something
more definite will bo done Plans for tho
Cathedral will bo solicited from architects
in competition. Thq ono whioh glvos the
most satisfaction will bo chosen. Of courso
sumo American architect is what is van tod
for an Amoricau cathedral.
" Tho chief aitllculty is to combine the re
quirements of ecclesiastical architecture with
our native environment to get what will
suit our sky and climato, and will bo dig
nified and bcnuliful. Prof. Waro, of Colum
bia, has kindly consented to loud tho Build
ing Committeo any assistance ho may.
Ho is thoroughly familiar with tho charac
teristics of tho different stylos of archi
tecture. "No further largo donation has boon re
ceived siuco Mr. Astor'fl."
The work of planning an Amorican catho
dral ought to not as an inspiration to an
archltoot. It is a big conception, but fow con
ditions could bo moro favorablo to working
out a magnificent plan. Tho site is well
known. Morningsido Park affords a broad,
open spaco, so that buildings will not en
oroaoh on tho Cathedral from tho oast. The
grounds aro sufficiently ample to allow tho
structure to bo so placed that another open
space may be sooured it towards One Hun
dred and Tenth streot.
This is an advantage, but it will demand
additional consideration from tho arohiteot
in working out a plan. The whole building
will bo in view, and at a distauco which por
mits its proportions to bo duly felt through
out tho entire pile. Hence tho uood of ar
ranging the masses of the struoture effec
tively. Tho greater portion of tho community is
moro interested in tho material cathedral
than in its ocolesiastical organization and
government. Tho contributions have shown
this, since thoy are not at all sectarian. It is
felt that New York, if it is nut to be a
cathedral town, should be made so by a
building to which It can turn with the ut
most civio urido.

Ruin of a Fennsylranla Preacher dullty of
Collusion to Defrand.
BTZCLIL TO TBI WOBLD.1
PiHBBtmo, Nov. 2C. A pathetic inoidont
occurred in Common Pleas Court No. 2 yes.
terday afternoon. Tho dofendant was Rev.
James T. Robinson, a local preacher in
Sharpsburg, one of Pittsburg's suburbs. Ho
is over seventy years of age. Ue was at ono
timo in good circumslancos, being worth
about $100,000. When tho Ul-fatod Farmors'
ana Mecuanics' isauit, 01 nnarpsuurg, was
organized Mr. Robinson invested in it con
siderable monoy. The bank, after a brief
career, became unable to meet its obligations
and closed its doors with a deficit of over
$100,000, for which the stockholders were ro
sponsible. This failure was a hoavy blow to
Mr. Robinson, whoso complete financial ruin
followed. . . ,
Mr. Robinson at this time owned, a lot in
Sharpsburg, which was of small valuo, and
his wifo proposed to him that ho should con
vey this proporty to her and in addition to
that give her $200 in caBh. In return for this
Bhe assigned to him a legacy of $500, which
would becomo hor's upon the death of her
mother. Mrs. Robinson mortgaged tho lot
and built upon it and afterwards sold it. By
making several investments In real estate,
Mrs. Robinson finally bocamo possessed of
the proporty in dispute, a house and lot on
Main stroot. Sharpsburg, valuod at bctwoon
$5,000 and $6,000.
Tho point at issue In this case, of whioh
this is the Booond trial, was whether or not
Mr. Robinson and his wife had aotud In ool
lusion to transfer the lot and $200. with tho
intention of 'defrauding tho creditors of the
foimer. Yostorday tho jury decided that it
was a collusion to dofraud, and that tho
$5,000 house and lot was liablo for Mr. Rob
inson's old debts. When tho verdlot was
read Mr. Robinson foil oil his chair
in a swoon. Ho was carried out of court and
restoratives wero applied. When ho reoov.
ered consciousness he became violently Mil

who was attending to him in the corridor 1
" This verdict leavos us nothing. It not only
takoso'nay our property, but It takes away
our character for truthfulness and makes us
out liars. It shows' that twelvo men did not
believe what you ond 1 swore to on tho witness-standthat
tho transfer was made with

to-day was even more decisive than it was
when the same oarsmen racod before
Hanlan had frao soopo and fair play to

He was cheered enthusiastically by thou

the undisputed claim to the championship of
Tho Nepean River, on whioh Hanlan and
Beach rowed, Is situated thirty-four miles
from Sydney. It can easily be rcaohod by
road or rail. The course is three miles and
quartczJqmjarid thxeo miles of this is per.
feetly straight, Tho only curve is a slight
one for tho first quarter of a milo. The river
is about a quarter of a mile wide throughout,
save at the finish, which Is some sixty yards
from the railway bridge Here it broadens
out a little. On the banks there aro but two
residences. Tho one on the eastern shore is
owned by Mr. Ewins, 0 Sydney morchant,
and the other, on tho opposito shoro, by G.
It. Dibbs, M. L. A.
Tho grand stand Is erected at the back of
Squire's Hotel, which is high up from the
water, opposite the finish. All the land on
either sido Is private proporty, and of course
th3 gate money must havo been con
siderable. There aro two little creoks running Into the
river from either side. Fonnorly there was
a sunkon rock mldwoy in the stream, but
this was removed by blasting, leaving the
channel clear. Tho depth of tho water aver
ages about fivo fathoms.
A strango feature, but a most important
one, Is the entire nbsenoe of tide, current or

large canal, iuolosed for four inllos by slop.

Whon Hanlan loft America several weeks

that he was confident of his ability

thoso who knew him beBt have deolared that
tho way the Canadian has boon handled by

them that tho Toronto man was losing his grip

(SPECIAL TO THE WOULD. I
Amsteiidau, N. Y Nov. 20. Almost nn
epidemic of diphtheria is raging in this city.
Deaths, aro very frequent, especially amoug
tho children. During tho warm months tho
city authorities maintained a public garbage
wagon, and tho refuse of tho city was re
moved hafore any ovil rosults could follow.
At the first sign of cold weather the garbage
wagon was takon off. This occasioned a howl
of disapproval, and householders at once
began reporting contagious diseases.
Tho spread of ditithtboria was no.
ticed immediately. Tho Hoard of Health,
at its meeting early this month,
could do nothing, owing to tho laggard at
tendance of tho members of that body. An
other meeting was callod. The first public
announcement of tho alarming spread of
diphtheria followod. Household ond physl
cians wero condemned for not giving prompt
notice to tho Board of Health of tho location
of the disease Tho saultnrj regulations of
the oity of Amsterdam wero printed and cir
culated, and the work of guarding against
tho spread of tho dtseaso began. House
holders were notified that any ono neglecting
to report to tho Board of Health any case of
contagious disease would be prosecuted ac
cording to law.
The Board of Health havo petitioned tho
Common Council to assist in tho work. A
joint meeting will be hold this week to tako
action on the matter. Soveral pestilence
breeding places aro maintained in differout
portions of the city.

FitiLADF.LPniA, Nov, 20." The Post, Pre. fIH
cut nnd Future of tho Knights of Labor " is V
a Btibjoct that in tho hands of an ordinarily H
cnpublo man would attract 'an, appreciative JqH
audience in this eity. Whon the Pennsyl- H
vaula and Roading Railroad omployeos ar- "fM
ranged for a lecture upon this subject they ''H
took It for granted that tho aims, tho objects, jH
tho conceptions and tho aspirations of tho 'Hafl
poworfttl labor organization would attract to fiH
Industrial Art Hall a large and sympathetic H
audience last evening, dSI
Thoso who held that tho affair would be AH
numerically a success wero not disappointed. KjH
Rarely has tho spacious hall been so well 'il
filled, and If frequent nnd earnest applauso n
be indications of appreciation, the vast 'IH
audienco of tho honiy-handod sons of toll 1H
were well satisfied with tho leoture. Two 'i'H
causes contributed to fill the house. In tho J
first place, tho locturo was dollvercd by ., IH
General Maiter Workman Powdorly, and In Jl
tho noxt it was in aid of tho striking authra- yH
clto coal miners of the Lehigh Valloy. To VH
Juduo front tho warmth of reception ae- fl-H
corded Mr. Powderly and tho frequent iSH
bursts of enthusiasm created by his lecture. iSH
ho Htill retains the respect and confidence of 'JH
tha order in Philadelphia. 3jBn
John M. Lee, Master Workman of the Ma. '"'JH
chiuery Constructors' District Assembly, No. i-JaH
1'JH, presided and opened the proceedings by , :M
a lirieT rufornnco to the strike in the Lehigh XH
ooal region and a fow words iu advocacy of H
tho miners' demands. He then introduced .;H
Mr. Powdorly. ;'JH
Premising his address by an eloquent do- t!
nuueiation of monopoly and a passing refer- ''j
ence to the war for the abolition of slavery A?H
among the colored raco, only to transfer its 'sg
shackles to millions of white men in this HH
liliorty-loUng country, Mr. Powderly sp- ,H
plied liitnself to the subject proper of his "eBM
lecture and said i 9bH
" On Thanksgiving eve in the year 1869 ' 'H
thoro was born in Philadelphia an organlsa- f:Wt
tion destined to hold forth tho hand of feU rfH
lowship to every man, which brushed aside 4rsH
all -distinctions of creed, and' in Tiew oxH
which it was made possible for the meanest -iiH
sweeper that lifts tho offal off our streets to K:&fl
look up withliope to a better and less degrad- '.'trSH
ing future. Thus was given to the world; tUH
the Kuights of Labor, which worked as a ,'1H
secret organization until September, 1881, ''H
when, in the City of Detroit, it laid itstocrecy rJH
asido, and the Knight came forth in his man-. KH
hood and proclaimed to tho toilers of tha trflH
earth that ho belonged to a body which took H
no account of creed or color, but had pledged 'iH
itself to work earnestly and persistently ior ' HH
the collective and individual Interests of its ,H
"To-day that organization is the strongest JH
in membership, tho strongest in intelligence SM
and tho strongest in manhood of any orga&I- IV"H
zntion ever created beneath the blue sky of .flH
heaven. We wolcomo to our rankB every H
man, not as has been said, for tho dollars or JH
dimes his accession may bring, but to teach '3H
him the things iu our social system that i&M
need a remody and create a publio opinion, vH
upon tho objects wo have set ourselves to at-- 'MH
Mr. Powderly noxt referred to tho IntroP'JH
dtiction of lubor-suvliig machinory, and im fqH
this connoction said : 1JmbI
" Do I rail against labor-saving machinery ?FotH
No, But I say that nt present it is not Prop-HSH
erly applied, and that we workingmen, who t v 3H
should, do not derive the benefits from its lvH

that they were nut intended solely forthom . FJiaH
that thoy wore designed for mankind, and .'AaH
that mankind should reap the benefits from '" tH
Sir. Powderly next applied himself to tha .VH
legislative work accompli died by the order "iJjM
siuco its inception. This, he said, was J4
greater than anynmountofrcmodiallcglsla. H
tion for tho working-classes that was passed 'JM
by either the political parties in tho same '-H
period of their early existence. SaVmn
The question of foreign labor was next ai- SM
lndcd to, and in reference thereto tho lecturer H
said ho was not opposed to foreign lmmigra- ,H
tion, provided the immigrants came to stay iH
and to become part and parcel of the country vf
of their adoption. Ho warmly denounced JJM
imported contract labor and gave a graphlo, ,-?
picture of tho wretchedness and filth of tho .H
domestic surroundings of soino miners whoso 'vH
district ho hnd visited, years ago. Of tha (jH
miners in tho Lehigh region ho said t H
" It is said tho miners aro a rough and un- rH
couth lot. That I denounce as a falso slan jH
dor. No braver, kinder or more generous 7H
body of men breathos tho air of heaven than u SH
tho miners of tho Schuylkill and Lehigh 'SH
Valley coal regions. A breaker is burned, SM
tho smoke ascends to heaven and tho tele ''iJH
graph wires flash the newt that it was dona fM
by tho striking miners. I say that it is a -l$H
barefaced Ho. No miner ever did it, for tho v
miners are not fools. They know that all the -4fU
proporty there is heavily covered by insur- iflH
auce, and if thoy havo fcolings of rovengo at 3M
all they will not avenge themselves on tha S
insurance companies, who are certainly not nS
their opptessors." 1H
As is his usual custom, Mr. Powderly then S
spoke at some length on temperance, and fl
concluded by predicting for tho Knights of
Labor a future that would abundantly real- H
