Heady for Fight";
Training Done and Both Smiling and
Confident of Victory in Tomor
SAN FRANCISCO. Dec. 19 Not until a
few hours beforo their fight tomorrow
night will Jimmy T3ritt and Battling Nel
son lcavo their training enmpr. All work,
howevor, coaacd yesterday and tho young
boxer3 today did HlLlo more than movo
fbout In a recreatlvo way.
Nelson Is slightly under -weight and
- i'rltt a fraction over the mark, so tho for
f it money Is safo on both aides. In ln
U'rvJews today each of tho pugilists ex
pressed confidence In tho outcome. Brltt
"I am going to bo beaten somo time,
but Noloon won't be the man. Ho 1b not
good enough fighter to whip me. This
may sound Uko conceit, but It Is a fact,
nevertheless "When I say that I will boat
N'clson don't think that I am looking for
an easy victory and that I am under
rating him. From what I have scon I
think Nelson is the best man 1 ever signed
Nelson said: "When I fought Corbelt T
wos better than when I fought Hanlon,
"ml when I meet Brltt I will be hotter
ihan when I heat CorlietL I have moro
confidence and I think I am a bettor
ifhtcr. I have Improved, but I think
T5rltt has been at his best. Tie won't bo
nnv better when he meets mo than when
hi" foughts Gnus or Corbett. If Brltt
bats me. all I can say Is that ho will
-now that ho has been In a light, and
hat ho found me In my best condition. I
will have no excuses."
Betting on the match han thus far been
light, with Brltt tho favorite and the Nel
son supportors asking for greater odds.
Today 10 to S were tho figures given
n round sporting headquarters, and tonight
the Nelsonltcs wore demanding 10 to 7.
The heavy betting is not looked for until

No Place for Inaugural
Objections Raised to Every
Building Suggested for
No Date Fixed to Consider Case
of Cadets Suspended for
WASHINGTON, Deo, 19 In tho House
today considerable discussion was pre
cipitated over a motion to suspend the
rules and take up a bill to open a home
stead settlement and entry of tho re
linquished and undisposed of portions of
tho Round Valloy Indian reservation, Cal.
Mr. Livcrnaah (Cal.) bitterly opposed tho
mcasuro, while his colleague, Mr. Boll,
made an earnest plea for Its passage.
Tho rules were suspended and the bill
Tho House took up and passed the bill
recently passed by tho Senate to Incorpo
rate tho American Red Cross.
A bill also was passed under suspension
of the rules to exclude from tho Toscmlto
National park, Cal.. certain lands, nnd to
attach them to the Sierra forest rcsorve.
For Suspended Cadets.
A resolution by Mr. Lacey of Towa,
making the bill to restoro thrco midship
men, John Henry Loflnnd. Earl Wordcn
Chaffee and Joseph Drummond Little,
members of tho first class, United States
naval academy, who were dismissed for
hazing, a special order after January 5,
caused somo criticism.
Mr. Lacey sought to pass tho resolution
under a suspension of the rules, and
Messrs. Mann of Illinois, Fitzgerald of
New York, and Williams of Missis
sippi, contended that tho case of theflo
midshipmen could not bo given prefer
ence when there were so many matters
of vast public Importance which could not
get time for consideration
The House refused to adopt tho resolu
tion, S5 to 77.
Tho Philippine Government bill, with the
Senate amendment, was referred to the
Commlttco on Insular Affairs.
Mr. Morrell of Pennsylvania moved the
passage under suspension of tho rules of
tho Senate bill providing for tho In
auguration of the President, amended so
ns to provide that the Inauguration ball
shall bo held In the capltol building In
stead of tho Congressional library.
Question of Buildings.
The bill as passed by the Senate au
thorized the Pension office to be used for
this purpose. Tho Houao amended It so
as to grant tho use of the Congressional
library, but Mr. Morrell said that tho op
position to the latter place had boten so
great that tho district commlttco now
urged tho capltol building. ;
An amendment by Mr. Williams was
adopted, requiring tho Inaugural commlt
tco to give bond guaranteeing to repair
all damage done.
By an emphatic "no" the House voted
down the resolution to hold the Inaugural
ball In tho capltol building, which went
back to tho calendar. It can bo brought
up again on District of Columbia day,
which will bo tho second Monday In
January, unless a special rulo or aomo ar
rangement Is made for Its prior considera
tion. Under suspension of the rules a bill
was passed to aid tho Western Alaska
Construction company. Mr. Morrell of
Pennsylvania called up the bill to grant
the temporary occupancy of tho Wash
ington monument grounds for the Ameri
can railway appliance exhibition. A mo
tion to 'pass the hill under suspension of
the rules was voted down, after which the
House, at 4:29 p. m., adjourned until

Starving In Arizona Because De-
prived of Water by Irrigation.
WASHING CON, Dec. 19. Dr. Charles L.
Thompson, secretary of tho Presbyterian
Board of Missions, discussed with Presi
dent Roosevelt today the serious condition
of the Pima Indians of Arizona. He told
tho President that the Indians actually
were dying of starvation because 4holr
hinds had been rendered unproductive by
tho diversion of the water of streams run
ning through them. Tho diversion of tho
water was caused by the development of
plana of tho Government for Irrigation of
Through a commission tho President has
already made an Investigation of the mat
ter, and It Is not unlikely that pumping
stations will be constructed on tho Pima
Indian lands to supply them with .suffi
cient water for all purposes. These pump
ing stations will bo erected In connection
wlt.n tho irrigation plants which are be
ing put In under direction of the Government.
Nebraska Wins From Missouri.
WASHINGTON. Dec. 19. -Tho Supremo
court of -tho United Stutes decided tho
boundary case between the States of Mis
souri and Nebraska In favor of tho State
of Nebraska. The case Involved the ques
tion as to whether a change of tho course
of the Missouri river had tho effect of
changing land which had theretofore been
on the west side of tho river to the east
of the river from tho Jurisdiction of Ne
braska to the Jurisdiction of Missouri, but
tho court held that It did not. The opin
ion was by Justice Harlan, who says that

Decision of Great Importance to Bail
ronds Handed Down, by United
States Supreme Court.
"WASHINGTON, Dec. 19. In a decision
handed down by Chief Justlco Fuller In
tho caso oC Johnson vs. the Southern Pa
clllc Railway company tho Supremo court
of tho UnlUd States today practically held
that all csirs Including locomotives,
should bo equipped with uniform auto
matic couplers- Tho court also held that
dining cars cannot bo exempted from the
requirements of tho safety appllanco law
when In use, even though empty.
Tho decision Is considered by tho Inter
state Commerce commission and tho De
partment of Justice to be a decided step
forward In the protection of railroad em
ployees. Secretary Mossley of the com
mission, summarizes the points decided as
First, that couplers on railroad cars
must be of such a character that they will
counlo automatically and so save em
ployees from eoliiu between cars, though
absolute uniformity Is not required.
'Second, a car, though empty and on a
sidetrack, may bo engaged In Interstate
"Third, 4hat for the purpose of tho safe
ty appliance law locomotives are cars, and
that thev are required to be equipped with
automatic couplers "
The accident out of which tho suit grew
occurred at Promontory, Utah, In 190),
when Johnson, who was the head brake
man on a throuph passenger train be
tween San Francisco and Ogdcn, was di
rected to coupiu the locomotlvo to a din
ing car which was standing on a side
track at that point. Tho cnglno and car
were equipped, respectively with tho Jen
ney coupler and tho Miller hook, but they
djd not work together, and Johnson was
compelled to go between tho cars, with the
result that his hand was so badly mashed
that amputation became necessary. Ho
brought suit for damages, but both the
Circuit court for the District of Utah and
the Circuit Court of Appeals for tho
Eighth circuit decided against-him. To
day's opinion revorses both theso Judg
ments and orders a new trial.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 19 The "United
States Supremo court today adjourned
until January 3, for the Christmas holidays.

somo facts in tho Call office in this
City that should interest you and the
editor of The Tribune as well as news
paper men generally. "We copy now
from a letter from Clifford House of
"That Bright's Disease and Diabetes
are now curable it is well within the
province of somo of us in the Coll of
fice to know that it is true. Mr. Ed
ward Short of this department, alr
though given up by his physicians as
a victim of Diabetes, got well. The
mother of one of the editorial staff
has also recovered from Diabetes. This
was so conclusive that I told a friend,
in Duluth, Minn., who has Bright's
Disease. He recovered."
We will also add that ex-Supreme
Judge BIgelow, in the Call building,
is a late recovery.
Kindly coll this importanat discov
ery to the attention of your people.
