St. Paul an Expensive City.
The results of the investigations of the
city affairs of St. Paul Is a recommenda
tion by the committee of investigation of
a reduction of expenses amounting in the
aggregate to $248,000. At the opening of
the report the committee touches upon one
fact which goes a long way toward ex
plaining the ct. million nf things in that
town. It speaks of St. Paul having a
larger area In proportion lo Its popula
tion than any other city In the country,
and having more mllesof improved streets
in proportion to population, which streets
are cut through rough ground, requiring
Tieavy grading and filllngnt great expense.
The character of the soil, too, Is such that
paving Is necessary on streets carrying any
considerable amount of travel. The bulk
of the territory Is what Is known as the
inlcrurtian district the territory which

But No Decision.

Stanton Abbott, lhcllght-welghtchauiplon
of England, and JackiDaly, who holds the
same honor in Dc!aware,'fought thtrt)-stx
rounds to a draw before Hie Young Men's
Athletic Club last night. ,
It was one of the liardest and gamest
battles ever pulled off in this section of
the country, and the old timers who saw
It say that it will take Its place among
the star events of the ring.
Above all it was a superb exhibition of
scientific fighting: Both men were In fine
fettle, matched Id weight lo a fraction,
and both full of science. The men fought
for more than three hours, and the snap
and ginger was kept up from the time they
parted after the handshake until the referee
declared it no fight.
The battle was pulled off in the Old
Eureka Club, near Jackson City, and the
attendance, owing to the misty night, was
disappointingly slim. Those who did brave
tbc elements, however, were well repaid.
.. OFFICIALS OF THE FIGHT.
Bobby Frankfort,"Doc" Ray and" Jersey"
Gordon did the honors for Daly, while the
Englishman was looked after by Jake Kil
raiu of Baltimore, John Dunn, Ed Gorman
of Illinois and Tom Cooney of Boston.
Joe Murphy held the watch for Daly and
Mike Do) le performed a similar service for
Abbott. U. Koenlg officiated as referee.
Jack Daly was in tbe best condition that
he has been in on going into a fight tor a
long lime. He was strong as he could be
and could have fought all night if bis hands
had not gone back on hltn during the first
twenty rounds. The last ten rounds of the
fight he did not hav e the use of his left arm
Taken all in all this right stamps the Wil
mington boy as a wond-r. He has still a
good deal to barn of the-f luer points of tbc
game, but that he would have whipped Ab
bott but fur t lie fact of his unreliable hands
there cau be no doubt. Uehad the English
man on the run during the first ten rounds
of the "go," but was unable to go in nnd
FIGHT BY ROUNDS.
The contest by rounds follows:
First Round ery little work was done
both mcnsparrlngforanopenlngand getting
each other's measure.
Second Round Aft-r sparring a moment
Abbott led for Daly's body, but missed. He
tried again for the same spot immediately
after, but with no tictter success.
Third llonnJ Abbott led for tl.e tody,
missed and r-celved a corker In the face.
In getting away he again got one, this time
on the Jaw. He reached the Wilmington
boy's face immi-dlately after, however, but
v ery lightly. The round closed with honors
Fourth Round Abbott continued his lead
for the body, but only aliout one out of
every ten landed, and these were very
light ones. Daly made a v ideas swing for
the head, but fell short. He then upiier
cut. but did not land squarely.
Fifth Round By this time Daly w as com
mencing to fight fast, and one or two rushes
that he made for ihe Englishman gave him
all He betltr of the argument. He tried
a vicious twirg rtatrJeiVivr'bnt nilsn-iland,
nearly went dowfl ' , , ,
DALY CHANGED TACTICS.
Sixth Round Daly changed his tactics
and went for Abbott's ribsr He landed sev
eral times and then connected for the body
Daly wcutat Abbottharailierandtongsand
had him in queer street when the gong
sounded. By this time-it. looked like the
Wilmington lad was n sure winner, and
odds were being offered in his favor.
Seventh Round For some reason Daly
kept nway In tills round and there was not
much righting. Abtpott connected with
the face once, but very lightly.
Eighth Round Daly (came up fresh and
smiling, while Ihe Englishman looked some
what worried. Daly led for fnceand misled.
He tried again Immediately after with
better success. The men then mixed up
and both did some clever fighting. Up to
this time, however, Daly had all of the ad
vantage. Ninth Round Abbott krpt up his tactics
of leading for the stomach, but always fell
short, as Daly showed great cleverness lu
getting away from the-blows.
ABBOTT'S EYE SUrFERED.
Tenth Round Abbott's left optio was
oy this time in vety bad shape and Daly
kept up a continual play for the other lamp.
He got in a good one on the mouth which
drew blood. Abbott made a rally and
rushed Daly to the ropes, but was fought
off. Just as the gong sounded Daly got
In a facer that stunned the Englishman.
Eleventh Round Daly started In as if
ie meant to do Abbott at the opening of
Vhc round, going alter him hammer and
Daly swung right nnd left in quick suc
cession, but Abbott managed to elude most
of them. Daly again connected nitli a
corker Just as the gong sounded.
From the twi-lfth to the twentieth round
it was a case of give and take, with the
odds largely in Daly's favor. He fought
Abbott very fast at times and then again
would letup on him andlet tbc Engushman
do all or the workrorrfroundorso.
Whenever it came to in-fighting he out
pointed Abbott two to one and the English
man could nut land on him except when he
grew careless. BJtforhlswonde-rfulability
to take punishment the Englishman would
have been put out long before.
About the twentieth round Daly's left
arm got so bad that he could make noise
of it at all. lie still kept up his aggressive
fighting, however, and on one or two
occasions appcare'd to have Abbott all
The latter rallied wonderful, and when
the twentieth round opened up appeared to
have freshened up a great deal.
IN THE CLOSING ROUNDS.
From then up to the thirty-second round
It was as pretty an exhibition of starring
as has been seen In this section of the
country In a long time. Daly still had by
far the best of It, but both boys weregrow
lng very weak and their blows lacked the
steam that was necessary to make them
Abbott's face was decorated with a
couple or bad looking bumps acd his Icrt
eye was all but closed. The Wilmington
lad, on the other hand, did uot have a
scratch, and but for the fact that his left
arm was so bad was as gocd as when
he stepped Into the rlns. He was naturally
weak, however, and although he had Ab
bott on the ropes several times could not
put In the one on the point of the Jaw that
would have done the trick.
ABBOTT ASKED FOP. A DRAW.
In the thirty -third round Abbott suddenly
stoprcd fighting nnd appealed to the ref
eree to call the contest a draw. He claimed
that neltl-er he nor Daiycculd go on figtit
ing much longer and ns there was so little
money in tLe 1 cusc he ttought it best that
they should step 11 e tattle.
The referee refused to do this and they
continued for four rounds more, making
thrity-slT. in all.
At this Juncture the referee stopped the
fight, claiming that the men were not
It was a rank decision and thoclub evi
dently thought It such as they divided nil
of the gate receipts between the two men.

Mormons Receive Letters with tho
Dread Mark "Box G."
Salt Luke, Utah, Dee. 30. Many Jotters
bearing the well-known mark "Box G" are
again pasoing through the malls, causing
anxiety to the young Mormons. The letters
referred to are a uoUfientlon from the
heads of the Mormon church that the recip
ient has befii selected to go on a mission,
of which the destination is just us liable to
be the iijl Islands as the bouthcrn States
or Great Britain.
-In some cases tbc recipients are given a
couple of weeks' notice in order that tbey
may prepare tbe-tnselres for the Journey and
Ihe absence from home, which usually lasts
from two to three years; in others they re
ceive the warning within three or four
months or the time at which they are ex
pected to leave.
From the number of "Box G" envelopes
uow going through the malls, it would seem
that theuumberof missionaries for the com
ing year will be unusually large.

A. WONDERFUL DUCK.
One In Philadelphia That Can Skate.
Wing as Sails.
St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
There is a leuinrkauletlut. lu Die Phila
delphia Zoo lake, which will probably
prove the only one of its class that has
ever been discovered. It is a large,
snowy-white bird, whose plumage is so
luxurious that it would fill a good-Mze'd
pillow. Its wings, when spread out,
cover an area of four feet seven inches by
three and one-hair reet. The wings are
very peculiar, being jointed very close to
the body. This enables it to bend them
in such a way ns to form a tent. In
terrible winter storms lu its native land it
finds this very useful.
Those who watched this wonderful duck
notlceel that a peculiar growth was form
ing on Its re-el. As the weather grew
coiiler the growth grew mure and moi
pronounced. It appeared to be a thick,
cartilaginous substance, which gradually
extended. It looked like another toe, and
It was thought at rirst that the bird was
going to be malrormed. But Instead of
stopping whin the growth reached the
size of the other toes, it kept right on.
It grew lo be about six inches long, and
tbc end of II look a curious turn. In
stead of turning down like a tlaw , It
curled up and rounil in a picturesque loop.
Then It gradually hardened. The duck
had skates on. The peculiar formation
was Jum like Ihe skees of the Norsemen.
More titan probably the "skees" were
actually palte-rued after this growth.
The'se skates were Invaluable to the duck

earth and the eleep. Travel by swim

Waddling nfool was slow anil tedious,
bo kind nature provided a belter and
quicker way skating. All the duck had
lo do was In spread out his immense
wings, stand firmly on his skates, and,
wluzl he would go spinning over the sur
face or snow and ice at a high rale of
speed. With llic approach of warmer
weather these "skates" fall off, and tLe
