PEIZE FIGHT AND
BALL FOR BRITONS
Society and Pugilists Will Have a
Lovely Time at New
New York, Nov. 10.Bear-Admiral
Prince Louis of Battenberg was early
about his ship this morning and gave
to the chief-of-staff some final direc
tions about the ball which he will give
on board the Drake Tuesday night.
Shortly after 9 o'clock the Drake
weighed anchor and started down
stream, again receiving salutes from
passing craft. The Drake was warped
into Pier 52 of the Cunard line at
Gansevoort Market, where she will lie
during the remainder of the British
squadron's visit here. Workmen were
soon aboard, putting together the port
The chief athletic instructor of the
Drake announced today that during
the squadron's stay here there would be
a pugilistic contest between Sailor Kir
by, champion welter-weight of the Eng
lish navy, and Sailor Collins, champion
welter-weight of the United States
navy. Kirby is a member of the crew
of the Bedford and Collins of the crew
of the Kearsarge. The bout will be
for a purse of $100 and a cup offered by
Prince Louis. The cup is now held by
Sailor Coekovne, champion heavy
weight of the English navy, who won it
at Halifax in contest with another
sailor of the English navy, the cup
originally been a national prize.
It will hereafter be an interna
tional offering and will be con
tested for annually. Efforts were be
ing made to have the contest take place
on shore if possible and the sailors of
both squadrons are enthusiastic over it.
Before the Englishmen sail away
from New York there will be a series
of launch races in the lower bay in
which the contestants will be Eng
lishmen only. The contests will be
over a ten-mile course.

of the department of agriculture finds,
from the reports of the correspondents
and agents of the bureau, as follows:
The preliminary returns on the pro
duction of corn in 1905 indicate a total
yeild of about 2,707,993,540 bushels, or
an average of 38.8 bushels an acre, as
compared with an average yield of 26.8
bushels as finally estimated in 1904,
25.5 bushels in 1903, aitfd a ten-yearaver
age of 24.9 bushels.
The general average as to quality is
90.6 per cent, as compared with 88.2
last year, 83.1 in 1903 and 80.7 in 1902.
It is estimated that about 3.3 per cent
of the corn crop of 1904 was still in the
hands of farmers on Nov. 1, 1905, as
compared with 3.6 per cent of the crop
of 1903 in farmers' hands on Nov. 1,
1904 5.2 per cent of the crop of 1902

ON MADNESS' WAY
CIGARETS ARE BLAMED FOR CAUS-
British Expert's Comments on a Re
cent Report of the British
Placed on Drink.
LondonAccording to the latent re
port of the British Lunacy commission
insanity is more prevalent just now in
the English rural districts than in the
cities. This condition of affairs, how
ever, is considered by Dr. Forbes Wins
low, an English brain specialist, as be
ing purely abnormal and unlikely to be
duplicated for a number of years, in
sanity usually being most prevalent
as a rule, in the densely settled terri
tories of civilization.
Speaking of this condition of affairs
to a representative of the Westminster
Gazette, Dr. Winslow is quoted as fol
"People bora and bred in rural dis
tricts have plenty to keep their minds
occupied, they are not likely to become
idiots for want of something to think
about. Of course, men and women, who
thru long residence in crowded cen
ters, have got their mental condition,
would probably become melancholy mad
if placed in the heart of the country
without the society and rush and tear
they have become accustomed to. For
my part, when I want to rest my mind
absolutely by 'thinking of nothing at
all,' I indulge in a day's fishing but I
should doubt the wisdom of passing my
days in that restful occupation.
"My point is this: In a general way,
the conditions of life in the country are
far healthier than those of town life
and lunacy is inevitably, as a general
rule, less frequent in rural districts.
A good deal of madness is governed
by the laws of heredity and, altho
a person predisposed to madness may
successfully undergo enormous mental
strain, the collapse must comenot be
cause of the strain, but on account of
the predisposition. Such a person would
be no better off in the country than in
Alcohol the Orief Offender.
"Alcohol must be given first place as
the cause of present-day insanity.
"No one at this moment could be
found mad enough to deny that it is a
brain poison: ana the insanity due, di
rectly or indirectly, to drink is appall
ing. T?hen there is the use of tobacco
in the shape of cigarettes particular
ly: I do not say pipe smoking is harm
ful unless carried to excess. But the
use of cigarettesespecially on an
empty stomachis a very potent factor
in the making of a lunatic.
"The No-Hat Fad."
"And here perhaps I may be allowed
to utter a word of warning with respect
to the 'no-hat' fad. In very hot
their hats are simply tempting Provi
dence that way, emphatically, madness
"There is no sort of doubt in my
mind that the age ls degenerating. I
know there are no statistics sufficiently
definite, in their character to prove this
contention. But he who runs may read.
Take this great city of London, with
all its modern improvements, its ad
vanced scientific and medical knowl
edge. It has produced, and continues
to produce, more lunatics in proportion
to its population than any other city
in the world. A nation whose metro
polis is in that condition must surely be
in a rather bad way.''

WESTERN SCHOOLS AHEAD
The college year has begun and the enroll
hient figures of twenty-seven American univer
sities, receitly published, are curious and sug
gestive. These figures indicate three things:
first, that the large western universities are out
stripping the eastern institutions as regards
toe number of students secondly, that women
are tending to monopolize those western univer
sities which are organized on the principle of
co-education thirdly, that small colleges seem
destined to enjoy their day of prosperity at the
expense of their great competitors.
If we exclude Radcliffe college, which, of
course, is intended sohlely for women, and the
Harvard summer school, the beneficiaries of
which cannot be classed either as undergradu
ates or graduates, we find that the total en
rollment this year in Harvard university was
but 3,865, as against 4,004 a year ago. Co
lumbia, which now has 3,725, has suffered an
even greater loss.

hope of the reactionaries is to excite the

The Actual Situation.
Turning to the actual situation, Mr.
"At present all the armed forces
obey one head, but there is disaffection
in the army, estimated by sanguine
revolutionists at 50 per cent. Even put
it at half that figure, it would mean a
sanguinary civil war, once the czar is
gone. While he is on top, altho some
of the troops will not fire on the peo
ple, none of the soldiers will fire on
each other, an"d hence the criminal mad
ness of the extremists, who want the
millenium supplied by telephone and
whose opposition to Count Witte imper
ils everything. If once the emperor went down,
even the most fierce of the %volution
aries admit, the only result would be
the return of despotism in the shape of
a military dictatorship, but as long as
he lives there is reason to share his
calm and unshakable faith that with
God's help all will come right."

day, and with several other friends,
Mrs. Henry Alexander, Mrs. Harry H.

hats and bonnets from morning until

It is doubtful if even professional
modistes can boast of a better day's
business than these charming workers
for charity have to their credit, for
during the morning alone they sold
fiifty-seven hats, averaging $15 each,
and in the afternoon forty.
Added to the $1,200 or $1,500 which
their first day's work will net them,'
they have about $1,000 which their
nimble fingers brought in last week.

most industrious bees.
Mrs. Irvin bought the materials, and
she, with her fair assistants, did most
of the fashioning of the models that
were on exhibition. They were the em
bodiment of the most "recent French
styles, and were as dainty, as chic and
as charming as hats could possibly be.
At least that was the verdict of the
women who came to look and buy..

New York, Nov. 10.Michael E. Mel-'
laney, the janitor or caretaker of the
Mutual Life's house at Albany main
tained for the use of "Andy'
the legislative agent, was the most in
teresting witness at yesterday's ses
sion of the Armstrong committee.
Mellaney said his wages were paid us
ually by Fields or the latter's righthand
man, Carpenter. Since September Car
penter has paid him. He said he bought
al the supplies for the house and when
asked if he ever did any traveling for
th Mutual Life he said he came down
city once in a while to see Fields.
He could not remember what the busi
ness was. He thought he had received
some money for traveling expenses. He
said when he came down to this city
Fields sometimes gave him money.
Mr. Hughes read from one of the blot
ters of the Mutual Life an entry dated
Jan. 18, 1905, which stated that M. E.
Mellaney had been paid $550 for travel
Beck's Bad Luck.
James M. Beck, counsel for the Mu
tual Life, requested Mr. Hughes to ask
the witness if he did not often buy rail
road tickets for Mr. Fields. Mr. Beck
has been unfortunate heretofore in mak
ing suggestions and this case proved no
exception. Mr. Hughes said he would
gladly comply with the request.
Q.Did you buy railroad tickets for
Mr. Fields? A.Yes.
Q.Where was he going? A.To
often was he in Albany last
whe the legislature was not in
session? A.He wasn't there.
Q.When did he come to Albany for
the last session! A.On Jan. 1.
Q.He wasn't there during the sum
mer or fall of 1904? A.No, sir.
Q.-r-Then when you bought tickets
for him it was during the session!
Mellaney said that his wages as the
caretaker of the Albany house were $75
a month. Mr. Hughes showed the wit
ness a thick bundle of vouchers and
Mellaney admitted he had received the
money each called for.
The vouchers an*d the amounts paid
to Mellaney were as follows: March 7,
1900, $198: April 2, $620 Oct. 4. $180
Jan. 7, 1901, $1,025 Feb. 8, $150 Oct.
15. $250: Oct.
$150 Jan. 20, 1902,

1903 $350 June 30, $225 Nov. 2, $150
Dec. 18, $275 Feb. 11, $225: Dec. 1,
$230: and March 15, 1905, $175.
Q.Are you a lawyer! A.No, sir.
Q.Have you ever rendered any legal
services for the Mutual Life! A.No,
Beck Tried to Explain.
Mr. Beck tried to explain away the
bad impression the witness was making,
but declaring that the house at Albany
was maintained for the purpose of de
feating obnoxious legislation and that
the cost of it was all charged to law ex
penses. Mr. Hughes answered that
that did not explain why some of the
vouchers to Mellaney read for legal serv
ices and others for his services as care
taker of the house.
When asked who was in the Albany
house last year, the witness said Mr.
Fields, Mr. Carpenter and occasionally
P. F. Dudeher, who is Field's brother
in-law/ Mellantev admitted that he
went to Dobbs Ferry from time to time.
Fields lives at that place.
When a&ked who had lived at the Al
bany house during the past five years,
the witness replied Senator McClellan.
He was asked if Dudeher was a lawyer
and replied that he was not. Mr.
Hughes then read a voucher dated Jan.
14, 1903, at Chicago for $2,021, signed
by P. F. Dudeher "for money paid out
for legal expenses."

TEAIN BUILT FOR ROYALTY
Native Indian Workmen Make Marvel
ous Cars, Inlaid in Bare Woods.
New York World.
London.A description has been re
ceived here of the magnificent special
train in which the prince and princess
of Wales will make their journey from
Bombay to the principal cities in India.
The train was constructed by native
Indian workmen in the shops of the
East Indian Railway company and is a
marvel of workmanship. The two cars
set aside for the personal use of the
prince and princess respectively are
built on the same plan, and contain a
day and night apartment, a bathroom,
a servants' room and a baggage reposi
tory. The interior decoration is inlaid
in the rarest of precious woods, all high
ly polished and well matched as to the
eolor scheme. The furniture of the
prince's car is upholstered in pale green
leather and that of the princess in pale
gray satin. The beds are of mahogany,
with other precious inlaid woods, both
decorated with the prince's coat of
arms in relief. The exterior of the other
cars composing the roval train perfectly
matches the two princely cars, and the
ensemble gives a verv pleasing effect.
The prince will arrive at Bombay on
Nov. 9, and will remain there till the
14th. After visiting lndere, LT
and Bikanner, they will arrive at La
hore on Dec. 1. Then a month will be
spent visiting Peshawur, Rawalpindi,
Jammu, Armritzar, Delhi, Gwanor,
Lucknow and Calcutta, where the prin
cess will remain a week. Then they are
scheduled to visit Rangoon, Mandalay,
Madras, Mysore, Bengal, Hyderabad,
Benares, Simla, Qustta and Karachi,
where they are due March 17, a few
days before leaving India on their re
turn trip. AH the Indian sovereigns and
chiefs of states are to be assembled at
lndere on^ov. 15. The military ma
neuvers under Lord Kitchener's com
mand will take place at Rawalpindi on
