Bart Doran, one of Pittsburg's mos
"promising exponents of the "manly art,"
returned to bis home at 38 Franklin street
".yesterday. Doran left the city last June,
nana nas naa quite an. evenuui career since
then. He has taken part in several battles, 1
phis principal ones being with H. S. Praxier,
ptheLColorado champion. He defeated the
o Colorado man twice, the second time being
; quite recently. An account of the battle
appeared in The Dispatch at the time.
:Doran is one of the few entelligent men
Fwho adopt boxing as a profession, and he is
an exceedingly interesting conrersation-

llngcinstructor at tho Memphis- Gymnasium.
swbich has a membership of 690, and be also
Kfhad a class at the University ot Michigan.
SOME IKTEEESTIKG TALE,
i Doran has Interesting views of boxing, and
draws a lino between that and prizefighting
that is, baiksackleT-nghttng. During a con
versation list evening he said: "Ihold that
boxing is quite distinct from what we call real
fpriie' fighting. Although I have taken part in
several skinlove fights, I still am free to say
that we only find the tougher element olso-

30XING IS BOOMIKG.
"WelL in Texas particularly, I find that box-
King is booming. Itton't mean prize fighting,
but", glove contests. At Dallas a club is off er
ring a purse ox tiou tor a gioTe tournament, ana
throughout the entire State there is a similar
desire to encourage boxing. And that is in a
. State where the law does not Interfere with
fights.' A very large clnb is being lormea
lit Hew Orleans, and In a short time it will bo
to the front with Bom.i handsome prizes for
boxing contests. At Memphis, where i was re
cently teaching, about 1,000 is to be expended
on improving the rooms there. In short, box
ing is becoming extremely popular."
' Doran went on to say that as a rule there is
less brutality in a boxing exhibition than there
is in a college football-match. As proof of bis
statement he recited the "slugging" features
of one or two recent matches between the lead
ing universities. He also said that he may be
engagea to put uugan, or tne ooutnsiae,
through a course of lessons, as Doran is still
anxious to meet Par Farrell.

The pedestrians continued their weary Jour

intensity of the struggle was just as great as on
any previous day. Dan Herty was a very dis
appointed man because "Happy" Jack Smith
did not arrive. The latter wired on Wednes

The contesants began to find out their
weak spots yesterday, and the pace was a little
slower than heretofore, but the contest was
just as severe.' It is sale to say that no finer
race bas been seen on any track than that
going on between Golden and Hegelman.
The latter gained a little and increased
his lead to four miles, but the extra
exertion needed had a great effect on Hegel
man. That be is a plucky fellow there is no
doubt whatever; and all Pittsburgers who pa
tronize pedestrlanlsm know that Golden is as
game a fellow as ever went on the track. The
extraordinary gam en ess of Golden sustains
the faith of his friends in his ability to win.
His feet are terribly blistered butotherwise be
is what may be termed all right. Judging
from appearances about 11 o'clock last even-int-
Onlrien reallv anneared to have a little
more vigor than Hegelman, but the tatter's re
markable speed serves him well now and
again. Goiden's only hope is in running
Hegelman to a standstill, and this he evidently
intends to try and dp. Altogether it is a des
perate contest between .Ireland and Germany.
Herty continued to drop behind, but be ran
pluckily. It seems now to be a fight between
him and Connors tor third place, and Glick is
threatening both of them. To-day will be a
crucial time for all three of these men. Glide
Is doing remarkably well, and so is the veteran
Andy Siobert. Day bas his bet of S103 that be
would defeat Koremac quite safe, as the latter
is entirely out of it as far as chances of winning
are concerned.. Last evening tho gentleman
backing Noremac gave up the bet. The pair
wi'J likely meet again on New Year's Day, as
there is to be a consolation race on that day.
All except the two winners of the big race can
start. There are still many people inclined to
bet that Golden defeats Hegelman. Following

The race trouble at Jessup, Ga., was
caused by the attempt to arrest a negro
desperado! He shot one of the officers and
precipitated a general fight. The negroes
have retreated to a swamp, which is sur
rounded by am armed posse.
Savaxnah. GA..-J December 26. The
trouble at , Jessup yesterday begun at 10
A. M. when Chief Marshal Xeggett and as
sistants attempted to arrest Bob Brewer, the
notorious negro outlaw and fugitive. Brewer
raised his gun to his shoulder and deliber
ately shot down Assistant Marshal Barn
hill, killing him instantly. The Chief Mar
shal then fired on Brewer, but missed him.
Brewer returned the fire and shot Leggett
Brewer and his crowd of 10 or 12 men
then fled to McMillan swamp, a few rods
away. The report of .the guns threw the
town into a whirlwind of excitement and
the negroes were followed into tbe swamp
by several citizens. Among them were
'William Wood, a carpenter, and his son,
William Wood, who is on a visit from
Bidgeland, S. C, to his father,
A FIGHT XS THE SWAMP.
The negroes dodged into the swamp, and
when young "Wood ran in behind . them,
Brewer rose np and shot him through the
head, killing him instantly, and shot
Wood's father in the face. Accomplishing
this much the negroes ran farther into the
swamp and escaped.
The news of the death of young Wood
and the serious shooting of his father spread
like wild fire over the town. . Confusion
reigned for a time, and Jessup seemed to be
in the bands of a violent mob. Mayor
Hopps called a meeting and hasty-arrange
ments were maae to protect tne town.
Seventy-five armed men were gathered in a
few minutes, and followed Brewer and his
party a distance into the swamp.
McMillan Bay covers over 400 acres, and
Brewer is so familiar with its hiding places
that the efforts of the posse to locate him in
the swamp were regarded as in vain. The
strength of the posse was increased by at
least 25 armed men before an hour had
elapsed, and a picket line was formed on the
east side, so as to prohibit anybody from
coming out of the swamp to the toWn.
AT HOME THERE.
Brewer is thoroughly familiar with the
land, having been skulking around and
biding there, fishing and hunting for a
number of months. Brewer had threatened
the life of Assistant Marshal Barnhill since
the officer killed one of Brewer's pals a few
weeks ago while attempting to arrest the
colored man for gambling. Yesterday was
Brewer's chance, and he took advantage of
the opportunity when the assistant officer
came unarmed' to the side of Chief Marshal
Leggett, wbo was making the arrest.
Marshal Leggett, who is badly wounded
in both legs, was seen abont'the affair at his
home. He said that when he went up to
arrest Brewer, he knew that he had a bad
man to fool with. He wanted a force large
enough to take the desperado.
"When I got near him," the Chief Mar
shal said, "and he saw who. I was, he left
two of my posse who were talking with him
ani came toward me. I heard him say, That
is. the rascal X want,' and be stepped'behind.
Mr. Reddish. He kept coming, and 1 threw
my gun to my face aud told hinfto stop." He
looked at me sullenly and put the gun
acrosi his shoulder and started back. He
thought that I would return to town and get
SIGNS OF TROUBLE.
"When I met an old man named Bayford
and several others, all of whom had guns, I
turned round to see what they were going to
do, and I saw Bayford exchange a 38-cali-ber
Winchester for a32-caliber and make
threats and curse the'white people. I knew
we were in for it; so I waited, and had not
long to wait, when I saw Brewer throw his
gun to his shonlder and fire. I looked
around and saw my assistant fall to the
ground add knew he was fatally wounded.
then returned the fire, shooting at Brewer.
He turned loose on-me and wounded me at
the first fire. I discharged both barrels of
my gun and knew! was done, jumped down
an embankment and ran for life. Mr. Bed
dish stood still and Brewer approached and
saying, " you, I have a great mind to
kill you,' he struck him and took the gun
News peached the authorities that J. W.
Byan, a white man living there, was the in
stigator of the affray. A posse was sent to
his honse to arrest him, but Byan had made
his escape. The men are on the lookout for
him. It is said that he put the idea into
Brewer's head about the duty of the white
people to the colored folks, and report says
that he excited them by saving that the mur
der of the colored man killed by Barnhill
should be avenged.
XS ACCIDEHTAIi SHOOTING.
Henry Anderson, one of the. gnards put
over Byan's house, was accidentally shot
and killed last night by one of his own
party. He came over to Captain Gordon's
headquarters for reinforcements, and was
going back, when a gun held by Townsend,
one of his party, was discharged, blowing
Anderson's Drains out. Anderson was for
merly the hotel proprietor - here, but of
late had been with the Central Bailroad"of
Last night a colored man was shot by a
picket while coming from the McMillan
swamp. He attempted to slip by the
officer, when he was shot. The ball took
effect in the right breast, but the wound is
not fatal. It is believed that he was act
ing as a spy.
At about 3 o'clock this morning a party
of unknown men attacked the jail at Jessup,
driving away'the guards. In a few minutes
the doors were battered in and four went in

Bill Hopps. Tbe lormer was the man who
had been wounded and captured in the
A SEED SOON COMPLETED.
The military were stationed about a half
mile from the jail, but bribe time a detach

and all that there was to indicate what baa
happened, were the bodies of the dead

had suggested to tbe Mayor that a detail of
soldiers should be put on duty at the jail,
but the latter said that the Sheriff and his
deputies would protect the prisoners.
The Georgia Hussars, dismounted, the 1
company ordered to the scene of the trouble,
by the Governor, returned to Savannah this
aiternoon. The Brunswick Company was
retained ou duty by the Mayor. The re
turned soldiers reported the trouble over.
Their presence was only reauired to quiet
the excitement of the citizens of Jessup,
who remained in their houses last night to
protect their families, and their kitchens
and barns were filled with colored people of

rSPICIAL TELSQEAX TO THE DISPATCH.!
New Tobk, December 27. A party of about
twenty sports left Newark, at midnight on
Christmas night, and at ' near the samo hour a
band of about tbe same number shook, the mud"
ot Trenton from their b eels. There destination
was a spot equally distant from both cities, and
their purpose to witness a prize fight between
two young men, whose friends had kindly ar
ranged the necessary preliminaries, and granted
a purse of $200, 525 to the loser, to be contested
. The ring had been pitched in the upper loft
of a remarkably clean barn. It was only about
14 ieet squate, but there was plenty of room for
the slugging and wrestling that followed. Lon
don roles governed and kid' gloves were worn.
The fighters were Billy Jensen, of Newark,
wbo is 22 years old, stands 5 feet 7 inches, and
weighs 147 pounds, and Stephen, otherwise'
"Shorty" Caldwell, of .Philadelphia, who was
two years older and a half pound heavier, al
though two inches shorter. The limit of weight
stipulated was 14S pounds. Neither man had
ever fought in the ring before, but each bad a
reputation among bis friends as a strong fighter
in an impromptu scrimmage.
It was a desperate battle from the word "go."
Both men were most .determined and anxious
to be a winner quickly, but both found a tongh
nut to crack and some ferocious, though unusu
ally rough work was done before tne end was
reached, Forfour rounds the men flew at each
other like beasts and indulged in terrific fight
ing. Caldwell landed on top three times of the
four. By this time the faces and breasts of
both were cut and bleeding in several places.

Wben the men came up for theninth round
they were in very bad shape. Both of Jensen's
eyes were closing and Caldwell's cheeks and
breast were much marked. Caldwell at once
assumed the offensive and threw bis man bard.
After that the Philadelphia man won every

Beaver Falls, December 26. Some
thing of the industries of Beaver falls f
gave you in my former letter. -What should
now be told should be something of the ton
nage of this remarkable little, city, Carne
gie; Phipps & Co.'s works are naturally
. those which aperson, would -first look at.
Mr. F. Or. Tollman the, general manager,
says that the steel works, the wire mill and
the nail mill will have abont 60,000 tons of
ontgoing freight and between5,000 and 70,
000. tons of incoming freight. This includes
' coal, coke and gross 'metal. I might remark
here that this Beaver Valley already real
izes that natural gas kas already gone or is
fast going, so far as its own vicinity is con
cerned. The Carnegie "Works have already
discarded gas, because, it was impossible to
get a sufficient supply. Mr. Charles Mer
rick, of the Hoy ts Mail Company, ot New
Brighton, says he must have gas to run his
works and he will manufacture gas for that
purpose. And he has "not decided how he
will make the gas, and he is debat
ing between slack coal and Lima oil, bnt
will nse one or the other. He says he
knows, however, that the manufacturing of
gas will both be difficult and unsatisfactory.
quite ait indt;stbt.
The' Carnegie, Phipps & Co stores,
in Beaver Falls employ 1,100 hands, so it
can be seen it is quite an industry.
Away up at the upper end of Beaver
Palls is one of the most remarkable estab
lishments that I ever saw. It is the
Mideely Steel "Wire Belt Company. The
larger part ofthe factory was built this fall,
and it hasn't very much tonnage as yet
But it is an important factor in the ship
canal, anM for this reason: Mr. J. M. Good
win, ot Sbarpsville, whose name has been
mentioned several times as one of the civil
engineers on the Canal Commission, has a
patented idea, and the ilidgely "Wire Belt
; Works is trying to carry it out, although
Mr. Forbes, the foreman, did not know they
were doing it. Mr. Goodwin is having
made at the Midgely Wire Belt "Works a
cable for towing .on the Erie, Canal, New
York A person who hasn't seen the meth
ods ot construction of this wire' belt could
scarcely understand how it is made. Mr.
tioodwin's patent is upon a sort
of a catch on a cable. He bas to
have his cable smooth, in order to obviate
the sudden strain in pulling a vessel of
large tonnage. That is the difficulty that
has always been encountered in every cable.
The device is certainlv simple.
Mr. Goodwin's cable is abont one inch in
diameter and strong enough to pnll the
largest vessel that floats on the Atlantic.
Just, how be is going toelevate.it, I don't
know. But he says that he is going to have
it running over the top of the canal, and
not on the bottom. I think it weighs about
five pounds per lineal foot,
ttlhe next . place of interest below the
Midgely works isthe Championjbaw Works
of Bohrkaste 8a Co. This firm makes be
tween 300 and 400 saws per year, of 40
inches or over in diameter, and between 700
to 800 saws of lesser size. .Mr, Peter Jlae
gerle, the manager. -of the works, is very
earnest in his desire to have a ship canal.
He thinks the State is able, and ought to
pay something in that direction.
DECIDEDLY IN IT.
Mr. J. F. Kurtz, of Emerson, Smith &
Co., who is the Chairman of the Manufac
turers' Committee of the Beaver 'Valley,
probably did as much, and possibly more,
than any one other individual to secure the
appropriation for a preliminary survey for
a ship canal. In tact, it was in Beaver
Falls that the agitation of the matter
reached some definite form. Itwas through
the letter of Mr. Ktirtz, dated May 4, 1889,
to Governor Beaver, that Mr. J. M. Goodwin,-of
Sharpsville, was appointed.
Emerson, Smith & Co. manufacture saws.
Their tonnage is light. They, as well as the
Champion Works, use the highest-priced
steel. They can stick thousands of dollars'
worth of goods in a very small space. Indi
vidually the firm would be little benefited by
a canal. They might get some grindstones at
a little better rates, fortheyget a good many
of them from the lake regions. Their hand
saws, 45 to CO feet in length and 8 to 10
inches in width, go chiefly to the North
west. But there are no car-lot shipments.
As being of general benefit to the commu
nity, Mr. Kurtz wants to see a ship canal
built, and thinks the national Government,
should build it, but that the State, as a
matter of good faith, should contribute
largely to its construction.
The Hubbard Ax Company is near Emer
son, Smith & Co., and employs a large num
ber of hands. But the manager declined to
make, any statement as to tonnage, State aid
fir anything else, preferring to have such
statement come lromthe main office in Pitts
burg. The Western File Works of D; B. Wil
kinson, while having a tonnage of close
upon 6,000 tons per year, and using a great
many grindstones which they procure on
the lake near Cleveland would not be par
ticularly affected by a ship canal, except
through tne general interest. The works
employ about 150 bands. Mr. Wilkinson
thinks the State sbould pay a good share of
NO SLOUCH OP A BUSINESS.
The shovel factory of H. M. Myers &
Son does an incoming business ot about
.9,000 tons, counting coal, coke, iron and
steel, beside some lumber. Its outgoing
tonnage reaches about 3(000 tons per year.
H. M. Myers, senior. member of the firm,
thinks that Uncle Sam. ought to build the
canal himself. As the State 'couldn't even
build a hospital in the Beaver Valley, Mr.
Mvers thinks there is a very poor show of
its 1-iMllvintT niltr Ha f n 'jVll- ana1
4M wuisu'"Sf mhj ifssa ss va m auAkt tuaii
The Beaver Falls Steel Mill is a new in
terest, but already has a. business ot about
1,500 tons a year, both' incoming and outgo
ing. Dr. J. M. Nay.'head ofthe firm, is in
favor of a ship canal, but doesn't know just
what to think about State aid.
The Metric Metal Company is a business
that is started pretty late to do what' it in
tended to do. The chief business is the
manufacture of natural gas meters. Mr. J.
H. Logan, who is tbe head of the firm, is also
the head of the Logan. &.Strohridge Iron
Company, of New Brighton. Mr. Logan is
in favor of a ship canal, but has no opinion
regarding State aid.
The Penn Bridge Company has a business
of about 4,000 tons, incoming aud outgoing,
per year. Mr. T. S. White, of the firm,
favors State aid, but thinks the Government
ought to build the canal.
The. Union Drawn. Steel Company, manu
facturers of shafting, is one of the new en
terprises with which Mr. H. W. Hartmarf
is conuected. It is just about getting
started. Its capacity is -250 to 300 tons per
month. You have already had Mr. Hart
man's opinion regarding State aid.

A DOUBTING THOMAS.
Mr. Eekey, of the Howard Stove Works,
is something of a doubting Thomas. Of all
the persons I have met, Mr. Eckey is the
one who most derisively speaks of a ship
canal. He thinks it is utterly impractica
ble, visionary, chimerical and anything
else you may say that would indicate that
he does not believe in a ship canal.
The Whitla Glass Works uses from six to
seven cars of coal "per week, and of course
has incoming freight of lime, sand, lnmber,
soda ash, etc Mr. J. P. .Stone, Secretary
and Treasurer,- favors State aid for the ship
canal. The Whitla probably will cover the
glass houses of Beaver Falls.
While these mentioned industries do not
constitute all that are in Beaver Falls, they
are the chief ones and are sufficient to show
the nature of the business here.
Something has been said already in regard
to the difficulties which will be encountered
by a ship canal here. Also please pardon.
me ior saying it once more Mr. tiartman is
an enthusiast for a ship canal. But he
has another enterprise, also, that might
not gee exactly with a ship canal. That is.
a marginal railroad scheme. Such a
railroad would, of course, have to rnn along
the river front, and would either interfere
with the canal, or the canal would interfere
with it. Whether or not the marginal rail
road will be built, is for the future to deter
mine along with Mr. Hartman and a good
deal of cash. Mr. John Beeves, of the
Economite Society, thinks it will be erected.
There is some sort of map of it in my mind's
eye; bnt I can't catch exactly where it is
suDDOsed to tta. It seems to strike "Wur.
teniburg, the Pittsburg and Western, Fet-
terman (Wherever tnat is;, and seems to
make connection with the Gould system. If
the railroad is built, it will be of value to
this valley. But a ship canal cannot occupy
the same route. C. T. Dawson.

That Fnts the Philadelphia Departments on
an Eight-Hoar Basis.
Philadelphia, December 26. City
Solicitor Warwick to-day officially de
cided that the eigbt-honr law is applicable
to the departments under the control of the
city government The peculiar part of the
law is that it has been on the statute books
without being enforced for 21 years, having
been enacted at the .Legislative session of
1868. It has remained a dead letter during
all this time, and, if ever thought of by the
beads of departments, was never enforced.
Some" time since the United. Labor
League, at the suggestion of Mr. George
Chance, at that time President, took up the
question, and President Chance and Secre
tary Barrett were appointed a committee to
inquire into the legality of the measure and
the reasons of its non-enforcement. As a
result, the Law Committee of City Coun
cils recently referred the enactment to City
Solicitor Warwick for an official opinion,
with the result to-day as stated above.

The first tariff hearing was held by the
sub-committee of the House Ways and Means
Committee yesterday- Arguments for in
crease, decrease and total abolition of the
duty on coal were .'advanced, by Interested
parties. The duty on iron was also touched
upon. . '
WASHiNGt'osrif December 26. The first
series of "tfiejtariff ,hearlngs mapped out by
the House Committee on Ways and Means
was h'eld tq'daygentlemen interested in
metals, ores and coal being permitted to
give their views;
George H,ElyrErei;dent of the Western
Iron 'Ore Association,, which was organized
eight years ago. Spoke in favor of the re
tention of dnty onjrou ore. The dnty of 75
cents a ton Bad; been .beneficent and satis
factory. It had' promoted the iron and steel
interests of the United States in a remark
able degree. As an instance of this bene
ficent effect, Mr. Ely cited the production
ofthe Gogebic.district, which had increased,
from 1,000 tons.in-1881 to 14,000 tons during
ten months of 1889,. and of the Minnesota
district, which "had increased largely within
the same date's. In 1806 the total produce
tion of American mines had been 10,000,000
tons, while the' estimated production for
1889 was between J.4,000,000 and 15,000,000.
A QTJESTIOJT OF WAGES.
The question of duty, Mr. Ely said, was a
question of wages. In the Spanish mines
the hours of labor' were 72 hours a week; in
the Lake Superior region the hoars were 55
a week. In Spain the wages of drillers and
miners were 60 to. 72 cents a day, and of
common laborers 36 to CO cents. In the
Lake Superior mines the wages for drillers
and miners were f2 25 to $2 75 a day, and
for laborers $1 60. to $3. He believed in the
protection of American labor and in keep
ing up the rates of wages to American
workmen. He did not ask for any increase
of duty, but he earnestly urged the reten
tion of the present rate. The dutv had
operated to make np part of the difference
between tbe wages at home and abroad. If
the duty was high enough to make a full
equivalent for this difference, it would be at
least $1 50 a ton.
George Toby, of Massachusetts, addressed
the committee in' favor of the free importa
tion of iron ore and coal IJeread a long
memorial prepared by Kew England manu
facturers of iron and steel, in support ofthe
position which he advocated, and he con
tended that the present tariff was prejudicial
to the interests of the Atlantic coast, while
it discriminated in favor of the Western
HEW EirOLASrD3 "WANTS.
It was not just, said Mii Toby, that there
should be such a tariff rate as enabled one
or two'States to kill onithe iron interests of
other sections. New England sbould not be
forbidden by the tariff laws from enjoying
the advantages which her location on tbe
seacoast naturally presented her. She
should not be set back in civilization by the
impediment arising from tbe want of cheap
iron and steel.- Massachusetts askld for

and received-the reply that, in his opinion,

A DEATH -BLOW TO MINING.
P. B. WitherbeeJ of Newt York, President
of tbe eastern iron Association, argued
that the chief obstacle to the development
of New England manufactures was the al
most prohibitory freight rates charged bv
the New England railroads. The manu
facturers' interests would be best protected
by keeping a steady duty on the raw ma
terial. That duty stimulated tne mining
industry. If it was removed capital would
be intimidated, and he believed that all the
mines in bis section of the country would be
At the close of Mr. Witherbee's argu
ment, tbe committee took, a recess or 30
minutes. After the recess, the committee
heard statements' from V. K. Moore and
Powell Stackhonse, of Michigan, and the
questions directed to .them by members of
the committee Were intended to draw from,
them information as to the amount of labor
and ot capital contained in a ton of iron

satisfactory than those given by the gentle

a reduction of duty on iron ore.
Galusfaa A. Grow, of Pennsylvania, advo
cated a reduction of duty on coal, but main-,
tained that a proviso should be added to the
law, declaring that the reduced duty should
apply only to the products of such foreign
countries as did not -urge an abolition of
tariff, but that it shpuld be fixed at a rate
which would cover the difference of wages
in the United States and Canada.
PBOTESTS.By. COAL ME2T.
Charles P.Mayer, President of the Con
solidated Coal Company of Maryland, read
a paper protesting against any change in
the existing rate of duty on coal. To re
duce the rate,' he held, would effect a reduc
tion in wages, and would also destroy the
coasting trade of the United States. He
did not ask that tbe rate should be in
creased, although the just duty would be
$1 25 a ton. He did not want to put tbe
American laborer do.wn on the same plane
as tbe British laborer; a reduction of the
rate of duty would have that effect.
Joseph P. Butler, of Ohio, a manufac
turer of pig iron, protested against any re
duction ot dutv on that article. Statements
