The Northwestern Railroad Going to
Eject the Settlers Therefrom.
St. Paul, April 25.—A Pioneer Press,
Pierre, special says : General Superin
tendent Sanborn, of the Northwestern
railway, says it is the intention of his
road to take possession of the "Mile
Square," for railroad purposes, and that
the land they want is exactly that where
the town of Fort Pierre is situated. This
is the first official announcement of the
company's intention, and the company
will immediately set to work by legal
process to eject the settlers thereon. The
Fort Pierre citizens claim that they will
fight the company, but their chances are
slim, inasmuch as the company has ful
filled all the requirements to obtain title
to the land, and the Sioux bill provides
tha, they shall have it. This action of
the railroad will wipe out Fort Pierre,
which was recently chosen for the
county seat, and give that honor to
Stanley, the unsuccessful contestant, lo
cated across the river from here.

San Francisco, April 25. —The battle
between the middleweights, Charlie
Turner, of Stockton, and Denny Kel

to the Golden Gate Athletic Club to

Turner Was Going to- Win.
Turner came down from Stockton last
night and assured his friends that he
was going to win. He weighed 153
pounds and looked in good condition.
In the afternoon his representatives
and those of Kelleher met with the di
rectors of the club and chose Jimmie
Carroll, of Brooklyn, as referee. Carroll,
however, is still suffering from the
effects of his late tight with Smith.
Therefore he declined to serve. The
board then selected Joe Choynski to act
in his place. Betting was slightly in
Turner's favor last night.
But little was done up to the fifth

The ninth round was Turner's. He
gave Kelleher a dozen wicked blows in
the wind and on the jaw, and received
little punishment in return.
In the tenth round Turner continued
to pound hard on Kelleher's wind and

leher's hard counters.
In the eleventh round little damage
Turner continued to force the fighting
all through the twelfth round and landed
often on Kelleher's ribs and jaw. The
latter was evidently suffering from the
punishment; but just as the round
closed he gave Turner a terrific left-hand
blow in the stomach.
The Finish Came Suddenly.
The thirteenth round settled the fight,
though the finish came so suddenly that
the spectators were not prepared for it.
Kelleher was still fighting bravely, but
Turner was forcing him hard. The
Stockton man's blows were reaching
their mark oftener and he was evidently
the stronger; but just as the men broke
apart from a sharp rally Kelleher gave a
wicked swing with his left and his fist
came in contact with Turner's jaw. The
colored man went down on his face like
a shot. As the seconds were counted off
he made a struggle to rise, but it was a
clean knock-out,and the spectators burst
out with a roar of applause that lasted

GREAT ENTHUSIASM IN MINING
The Miners All Jubilant and Confident
That a New Era of Prosperity is
Beginning to Dawn.
San Francisco, April 25. —Not in many
years has there been such excitement

John C. Green, who owns valuable
mining properties in Alaska, said to
night that the rise in silver meant mil
lions of dollars to that possession, and
would assist wonderfully in the rapid
development of that Territory.
Col. S. Wenbon, who has large silver
interests in Nevada, said: "The spurt
in the mining market and sudden rise in
silver are giving a great impetus to the
mining business, especially in Nevada.
The boom has struck us in earnest, and
there will be a general increase in the
product of every silver mine in Nevada
i and California. Today silver reached
,$1.05; if it goes up to $1.10 the result
wiJl be that the mining interests of the
Coast will be doubled at least.
It will be a boom that will
mark a new era on the Coast, and create
a better feeling in all circles of business.
There are lots of mines both in Nevada
and California that are lying idle, sim
ply because the owners cannot obtain
the necessary capital to work them, but
the outlook now is excellent. Things
are brightening up, and I expect to see
the biggest mining time ever on the

Illiterate Negroes Testify as to How
V They Voted.
Little Rock, Ark., April 25.—The

mittee examined about seventy-five wit
nesses today, nearly all of whom were
negroes. One of the latter testified that
he cast a straight Republican ticket,

as his candidate for Congress. The ma
jority of the negroes who testified were
unable to read, and could not tell
whether the tickets shown them were
the one s they voted or not. They were
positive, however, of having voted for
Clayton; in very few cases the ballots
showed that they voted for Breckinridge.
In this State a number is written on the
ticket corresponding to the number op
posite the name of the voter in the poll
books, so that it is very easy to ascer
tain the ticket cast by each Voter. In
nearly all cases where a negro unable to
read has cast his vote, the ballot pro
duced was a straight Democratic one.

benevolence to shed the blood of the
