The Xew Brunswick Pngillst Fought
"Well, But "Was Outclassed.
New York, April 30. Geoige Lavigne, of
Saginaw, is still the undisputed lightweight
champion of the world. In a glove fight,
replete with interesting features, he suc
ceeded in stopping Eddie Connolly, sof
6t. John, N. B., in eleven rounds in the
ting of the Broadway Athletic Club tonight.
For the first four rounds Connolly put up
the hottest argument which has ever been
experienced by Lavigne. He outboxed the
Saginaw wonder, and punished him severe
lyln thatspaceoftlmc. It was thought that
Connollywould make Lavigne bite the dust,
but as the battle progressed, the old storyof
a fighter classing with a game boxer, was
vividly illustrated, and as the end drew
near, the triumph of brute strength over
cience was apparent to the large crowd.
Lavigne fought in lib, old style and gave
Connolly a terrible punishing. The New
Brunswick man clearly demonstrated that
he Is a vl-iy clever two-handed boxer and
game man. "When he was knocked down
by wicked smasheson the jaw he stubbornly
refused to take advantage of time limit

he used better judgment he would have

any more punishment.

Alexandria Excited by Another
Case of Attempted Assault.
NEGRO ASSAULTS MRS. HOUGH
A Stri-girle iu tlio Brute's Grusp.
But for the Timely Arrival of
Her Brother, There- Would Have
Been Another Subject lor LyneTi
Law Officers Alert.
Alexandria, April 30. Evidently the
lynching of McCoy and the narrow escape
of Lewis from a similar fate, has not taught
a sufficient lesson to the negroes or this
vicinity. Another negro assault was at
tempted last night, and the city has again
been thrown into a feverish state of ex
citement, and there are those who threaten
a repetition ot the McCoy episode should
the villain be captured.
The victim of tonight's attempted as
sault was Mrs. George W. Hough, of No.
410 North Columbus street, the wife of
a well-known citizen of this city, and her
assailant is unknown. Mrs. Hough's hus
band is employed ns proofreader on the
Washington Post, and consequently Is
not at home at night. About 10 o'clock
Mrs. Hough was standing in the front
door of her home She was alone in the
house except for her little boy, who was
aleep She was waiting the return of
her brother, who had been gone from
the house but a short time. Suddenly
and unobserved a large, burly negro
about thirt-fivc years old sulked out
from an alley near the houee and grasped
the lady and attempted to drag her from
the door. She struggled with him bra-.e-ly,
and by a heroic effort succeeded in
wresting herself from his grasp and fled
back in the doorway.
The brute was about to follow hef into
the house, and would doubtless have suc
ceeded, but lor the timely ariival of Mrs.
Hough's brother, Edwaid Clark, who was
returning, and within a shoit distance of
the 'house, and upon hearing the trouble
hastened to his sister's rescue. At the
sight of Mr. Clark the negio ran hurriedly
back through the alley and disappeared in
the darkness. Though terribly frightened
and oufferlng from the shock, Mrs. Hough
bravely ran into the house, and seizing
her husband's pistol, ruhed to the rear of
the house to fuhtcn the dcors and windows.
As Mrs. Hough was about to close the
back door she caught sight of her brutal
assailant, and demonstrated her pluck
and nerve, as well as her knowledge of
firearms and ability to defend herself by
firing three shots at the brute ns he was
climbing over the back yard fence. "By
the time her brother reached her the lady
had fallen prostrate, and the villlnn had
made good his escape, and it is not known
whether or not any of the shots were ef
fective. The shooting aroused intense excite
ment in the vicinity, and a crowd gathered
and started in pursuit of the negro, but
not until he had had timctogetcoiibiderable
distance away. There was no one on
the street near Mrs. Hough's residence at
the time, and but for the arrival of her
brother and her own plucky right, Alex
andria might have had sufficient cause
for another lynchihg.
Mrs Hough is a pretty little woman
about twenty-eight years of age, and be
liees she will be able to fully identify her
assailant should he be captured. She was
able to give a very good description of the
brute, and Lieut. Smith and his men, as
well as a posse of citizens, are endeavoring
to capture him. The incidentrevived not a
little of the spirit which animated the peo
ple here a week ago, and many angry
threats are made apainst the negro.

Grcelc Troops Said to Have Found
Athens, April 30. Advices from Pharsala
show that the panicky feeling that pre
vailed among the Greek troops when they
retreated from Larissa and MatI has en
tirely disappeared, and the men, who are
now as courageous as ever, will display no
hesitancy in giving battle to the Turks
when the occasion for fighting arrives.
Crown Frince Constantino has made a
round of visits to camps in the vicinity of
Pharsala, Inspecting the vnrious regiments,
and cheering the men with predictions of
success. The members of the staff of the
crown prince, who were recently recalled
by the government to make room for moie

THE FIGHTING "WAS FIERCE.
A Description ot tlie Turkish Attack
Athens, April 30. A dispatch from near
the front at Volo, dated last evening,
describes the fighting during the attack by
the Turks upon Velestino, ten miles from
Volo, as furious and bloody. The Turks at
tempted to turn the Greek right, and made
repeated assaults which were repulsed each
time with heavy loss to the Turks. The
engagement lasted over two hours, during
which time nearly ten thousand Turks were
under fire. The dispatch dated that the
Turks were apparently not dismayed by
their failures, and that the Greeks expected
a more serious onslaught on the morrow
(today) at daylight. The Turks outnumber
ed the Greeks, but the-posltioaof thelatter,
the dispatch said, was strong. The Greek
government has no adviceb that Volo sub
sequently fell into the hands ot the Turks,
and the report to that effect from Con
stantinople Is denied.

but the left wing, despite the fact that it
had been re-enforced by the troops under
Gen. Mavromlehalls, was compelled to re

THE COLUMBIAN ALUMNI
Annual Meeting at the Banquet
Board of Old Students.
HONOR THEIR ALMA MATER
Several Very Interesting Speeches.
Congressman Corliss Discourses
on the Civil Service laws, Which
He Calls "Obnoxious Measures."
Senator Harris Talk. "
Bhlp the Old Columbian Alumni Association
held their annual reunion at the banquet
board In thesupper-roomof the EbblttHoiise
last night. The good fellowship part was
especially In evidence, and from the offer
ing up of. grace to the singing of "Vive
Columbian," with which the festivities, all,
from the alumnas ot half a century ago to
thonew pledged bachelorof last year, agreed
to forget their graduation and lived over
the old glorious college days.
The tables iu the banquet hall were ar
ranged in horseshoe form, with President
Whitman at the center and the speukers
of the evening seated to either side of him.
Rev. Dr. S. H. Greene, of the Calvary
Baptist Church, delivered the invocation.
The flrstspeaker was Mr. Chapln Ihown,
president of theassociation, who responded
to the toast, "Our Alma Mater." Mr.
Brown spoke of the many advantages en
joyed by the Columbian University; of
its situation In the capital of the nation,
having us component parts of the institu
tion the Congressional Library, the va
rious museums, the observatory and similar
rcposltoxieb of knowledge, to all of which
the students have free access.
Another advantage of the university,
ho continued, was that it culls Its pupils
from tho citizens of Washington und
that class ot people who have made this
city famous as the scientific and literary
center of the nation.
"But after all," he said, "it is the
teachers who arc the principal part of
an educational institution, and to them
is to be ascribed the place which Co
lumbian holds in the world of titles to
day. Therefore I feel sure that I have
with me the hearts of all present when
1 bid them continue In the noble work
which they have so ablj performed thus
Dr Whitman, who spoke next on "The
University," dwelt on the functions of uu
institute of higher learning, which, he said,
is for the broadening of men's Ihes, for
the dissemination of that thing called
culture. "What is culture?" he said.
"Itis continuity. You can capture armies.
1ou can overturn empires, but you cannot
destroy the spirit of a nation, its culture
It is today the great conservative principle
of our country and of all civilizations
"Let us tell them," he said, in conclusion,
"rally to the aid of our alma mater, which
has admitted us to the brotherhood of
letters, which forms the world of 'culture "
John B. Corliss, who followed, stirred
up round after round of applau&e by his
vigorous attack on the ciil service law,
which he btlgmatizcd as "the most ob
noxious measure ever passed in this
"Look at tho law school of Columbian
University today," he said, "and you will
see studying there, young men employed In
our Government departments.
"The rule of rotation in office qffords
them this opportunity. But put the civil
service law, under which men grow old
in office, in force, and what becomes of
these ambitious young men.'
"In my opinion the civil service law
was a method devised by an ingenious
minister in a monarchy to protect his
potentate against the wrath of an in
"If this, law is to remain in force ten
years the departments will be filled up
with old, woru-out human machined, and
the Government service will be a series
of home for pensioners
"If this law is a good one, why notap
plylt totheHouseof Representatives?"
Mr. Corliss also paid his respects to the
enlistment laws, which require the recruit
toslgn for at least four years Suchalaw,
he said, kills all patriotism. Small wondtr
that a large proportion of them denert.
The proper law would be one which will
give a recruit the privilege of resigning
after one, year's service.
Senator Harris, of Kansas, who respond
ed to the toast, "The Arts and the Humani
ties," made a strong speech favoring plac
ing the college in the outskirts of the city,
where the students could have a campus
and be surrounded by the beauties of nature.
He was reassured by President Whitman,
whoinformed him that a movement tending
to tltls end is now in progress.
Dr. Carr spoke of the new hobpltal which
is to be erected as an annex to the medical
school, and said that tho Alumnae may
soon have an opportunity to show their
allegiance by contributing to its support.
Songs were rendered duiing the evening
by the Columbian Quartet.

DRUNK FOR TWENTY YEARS.
A correspondent writes: "I was drunk
on and off for over twenty years, drunk
when I had money, sober when I had
none. Many dear friends I lost, and num
bers gave me good advice to no purpose;
but, thank God, an angel hand came at
last In the form of my poor wife, who ad
ministered your marvelous remedy, "Anti
Jng,"to me without my knowledge or con
sent. I am now saved and completely trans
formed from a worthless fellow to a sober
and respected citizen."
