clear and pleasant -mth prospects of. a good
race. The yachts' wiu start about 11 o'clock.
The yacht race is for the citi.en5 cup in
which the Mayflower, Puritan and Galatea
are entered; it is the event of the day.
There are four prizes, one each for the
schooners for sloops and cutters of seventy
one feel and over for sloops and cutters
over fifty-five feet and under seventy-one
feet and for .sloops and schooners under
fifty-live feet; the race to be sailed under
the rules of the New York yacht club.
The course is triangular, about forty-live
miles long, starting from the vicinity of
Brenton's Keef lightship Following is
the list of competitors:
Schooners Gelana, Mantauk, Sachem,
First-class sloops Mayflower, Galatea,
Second-class bloops Bedouin, Stranger,
Third-class sloops Cinderella, Clara,
It proved a most disappointing affair and
degenerated into a floating match, the re
sult depending largely on luck in catching
cap fulls of breeze, and to add to the anom
ally of the whole affair. The first-class cup
was won by the English cutter Galatea,
whose only hope of doing anything against
shallow American skimming dishes h:is all
along been predicted upon her ability to
get out in a race with them in a stiff wind.
Furthermore, the great "Grey hounds of
the sea," both English and American, were
outfloatcd by the smaller fellow's drifting.
On the second scratch the Puritan lost
ground to several of the little fellows, and
was overhauled. y ine uaiaiea. me

to live miles astern, and at the time of this

At midnight Commodore Gerry gives the
probable winners, subject to claims of fouls,
of which there were several, as follows:
Galatea. Stranger, Gitiania and Cinderilla.
They finished in darkness between the
hours of 8 and 10:30.

points, and in itucjfc each principal wr.s
pledged not to 3mrr thc other, was com

tonight and proved to hi what was gen

The air of Pittsburg has been thicker to
day than at an jr "time 3ince the discovery,
and general use of natural gas, not with
the o'd-time smoke, however, but with pu
gilism. Everybody has been talking about
the great fight. The contest that was to
settle an aching doubt in the iniuds ot the
American people as to whether John L.
Sullivan was invincible, or whether the
comparatively unknown gladiator from
Philadelphia, Frank Ilearld, possessed the
skill, backed up by pluck, to plant his fist
on Mr. Sullivan's carcass often enough to
score a majority of thumps, pla'fully allied
point-, with theproneness of humanity to
accept as go-ipol what they know rather
than to pin their faith on what is only
claimed to be true. Most of those who ex
pressed an opinion at all, gave it in favor of
John is a big burlj", and has thrashed a
score or so already, and why should lie not
knock the head off Ilearld?
Six rounds,1 four ounce gloves, for scien
tific points only, was Ipassed from mouth
to month with significant grin;. No
knocking out; of course not; but it is safe
to say that of' the 3,000 people in the Coli
seum when Sullivau and Ilearld took their
corners, there vcre not a hundred who had
not paid their 2 in the expectation of see
ing one of those slugging exhibitions which
the gentle John "lusinade so popular.
Even John himself had tacitly acquiesced
with a knowing smile to audible conjec
tures made in his presence as to the likeli
hood of his knocking out Ilearld for his
temerity in daring to"face him at all.
As to" Ilearld he confessed that he had
nothing to say until after the contest.
The immense coliseum with its capacity
of 5,000 people was thrown opv-n at 7
o'clock and the crowd that had Iwcn clam

time, both men srirxnT li!i?!v fnrarnrd and ! nmn-rcl lnvk which thev had secured af- '
could be done with terrible effect. Sulli
van evinced the most desire to begin: he
made several feints at Hearld but the latter,
lithe and active as a cat, got away and
danced around the big man in a most ag
gravating manner. Sullivan was evidently
getting mad, but Hearld's face was as ex
pressionless as a whitewashed fence.
John could got stand it any longer:. He
madeiaof -his famous rushes and sent a
fearfhhfljBfy hander-into Hearld's slomach.
HearlurcQhiitered rapidlv on the chest but
got another one in the nose that sent him
flying half across the ring; but the Phila
delphian was not there to be irashedlwith
out a struggle and he was back again bang
ing away at the champion but with little
effect, certainly but with remarkably good
intentions. There w:is no doubt now about
the character of the contest: Sullivan
meant to knock out his man if he could.
The two fought wind for perhaps a minute
and then pinched. There was some
desperate infighting and Hearld was forced
over the .ropes. h.
The referee BreaTrbeak" away.
But there was no llreaway in the now
maddened fighters, and amid the yelling of
the crowd the pugilists were pulled apart
by their attendants and forced struggling
into their chairs.
The time was 2 3-4 minutes and Ilearld
shook himself and laughed while he was
being sponged and rubbed down. . He did
not look much the worse for the rough
handling he had received, and Sullivan was
not hurt, but he was very, very mad. He
had ei idently found more powers of resist
ance in the Philadelphia boy than he ex
The second round opened with cautious
sparring and Suliivan was wary and Hearld
a little apprehensive of the 'giant's rushes.
This time Ilearld was the attacking party.
He had made up his mind that he must
flight and was determined to do his best.
He tried to get at Sullivan's face but hit
short. In an instant he was in the embrace
of his antagonist, who pounded him on the
head, face and neck with all the force of
his brawny right arm, till Hearld slipped
away and gave Sullivan a drive under the
eye. That was the only clear blow he got
in on the champion. " The latter seemed
staggered for an instant and was apparent
ly too surprised to do more than protect
himself from the blows that
Hcarld was showering on his guard.
Then he gathered himself for a supreme
effort and with an upper cut under the
chin sent Hearld flat on his back, an
actual knock down. Hearld w:is up like a
flash and they clinched. The fight had be
come a mere rough and tumble. Hearld
slipped and fell again when the chcif-of
police and his officers rushed in and with
difficulty separated the men. All was con
fussion;the puglilists were both" anxious to
go on and it the officers had not kept them
apart they would have fought with the
police on the stage. Sullivan made a dash
at the representative of a New- York paper
and the latter reached toward his pistol
pocket, but the police disarmed him and forc
ed Sullivan iuto his chair. The referee then
declared Sullivan winner, while Hearld's
backer protested that his man was still aux
ious to fight. Sullivan then addressed the
press representatives, in which he compli
mented Hearld for his pluck, boasted of
his own "talent," and declared lumself
still ready to defend his title of champion
against all the comers. It was the opinion
tonight that Ilearld made a better stand
than McCraffrev did at Cincinnati.

Stockslager, acting commissioner of the
general land otlice- It has come to the
knowledgo"of this otlice that in many
towns where United State- land olliccs aro
located and iu other plan, certain hind
agents and attorneys adopt the busincM
sisins of a character to represent their
offices as government ofiices. For exam
pic tho sums may bear the words "U. S
Land Ollice," in bold letters of a size to be
readily seen at a distance, reading in very
small letters the word, "HusineM Done
Here," or "Papers Drawn Hero," and that
the effect and apparent purpose of such
signs is to mislead and deceive
the public, particularly settlers and nppli
cants who are uninformed and who often
enter these ofiices, have their papers made
out, pay the fees and leave their entry
money, fully lielieviug that they have been
transacting busiucKS with authorized gov
eminent officers. You arc authorized to
notify all agents and attorneys in your dis
tricts using deceptive or misleading signs
or advertisements of any character, that the
um of same must be forthwith discontin
ued, and ou will report nil Mich agents or
attorney to this otlice and facts iu each
case in'order that proierstep may be taken
to prohibit them fr.)tn practice Iwfore tho
land department and local land olllccs.
An Anarchist Slander.
Chicago, Sept. IS The nnarchist, Tar
sons, has been interv iewed several times re
ceiitly regarding the .statement made in the
TUrmtfli from "mo. Tev . to the effect
that his wife was formerly the inivstrehs of
a full blooded negro named Gathings,
who she deserted for Parsons. A letter
wliicli reached here from Waco reiterates
the charges made in the telegram. A pir
turcof Gathings came with it. Annul
with the letter and picture, a reporter called
upon Mrs. Parsons and went with her to
the jail, upon the occasion of her usual
visit to her husband. She preferred that
the interview should takr place in his pres
ence. To this rcquc.it the reporter assented.
The letter was read within the hearing of

Gathings' wife but that he left hurnomi
time before moling Mr. Pinions in Aus

in Texas, that no one mid any attention to
them in those days.. This was pudtively
all there was in it, and his wife knew no
more of Gathings than a child unborn.
