THE TOE OF WAR.
American Cities Takine Ut) an
How tho Great l'ulllne Contests Are
Conducted, with nn Account of
the Origin of this Latest
In almost every city in the Union,
at the present tirno, great bauds of
men aro in active training for tug of
war competitions of greater or less
magnitude and importance. Tho gen
ius who arranged the ono at San Fran
cisco recently cleared a deal of money
.tnd brought the sport prominently be
fore the public. Not that it needed
any introduction, for 'no set of athletic
games has ever been complete without
a tug of war competition, but tho in
ternational featuro is entirely new;
and it is that which has been introduc
ed, and which has made tho tug so
popular just now.
There aro but two international
sports hoiso racing and titers of war.
England rejoices in its cricket matches
America in baseball, Scotland in curl-
THE DANES SPREAD OUT & FACE TOE IOE.
Ing, Germany in turning and bowlikg,
France in wrestling aud fencing, btt
all have their raocs and tug of wat
1 no origin of the tug of war is
clouded in tho mists of tho past. The
popular idea has been that it originat
ed with the Greeks, aud Nathaniel
Lee's oft-used expression, "When
Greek meets Greek then comes tho tug
of war," has ahvavs been acemitml
without questioning. These lines must
have been inspired by a falso hypoth
esis, or else tho author took advantage
of tho liberties of poetic license. Nath
aniel lived and wroto about 1653, and
as there is no absolute record of a tug
of war until fifty years later, it could
hardly have been handed down from
tho inhabitants of Golden Hollar,
through whose, patrician veins athletic
blood coursed. The tii was doubtless
knoivu in Nathaniel's) time, but the
first recoid of a compefition is ono be
tween two boat crews of his majestj's
brig-of-war "Titania," contested in the
navy-yard at Portsmouth, England.
An old writer, evidently an admirer
of tho spoit, waTcs enthusiastic over
the result, "when with a lonir mill
altogether tho boatfitraiu's team drew

the captain of marines and his men
first to their feet and 4hen along on
their stomachs, nor ceased until they
had all let go of tho rope and surreu
dcred unconditionally.1' It is not hard
to believe that tho sport originated in
the navy. Its character would indi
cate that it did. '
But, be the origin of tho tug what
it may, tlio sport, onci, established,
gained favor, particularly with colle
ges and universities, and tlio entire
history of amateur athletics in institu
tions of learning particularly through
out England, Ireland, Scotland, Amer
ica and Canada is full of bright pages
of great deeds of strength and endur
ance demonstrated in tho tug.
Tho usual team in a tug of war con
test consists of eight men anda captain
who docs not "tug," but commands.
Two substitutes aro allowed to each
team. The tug was originally pulled
on tho turf, but of' late years it has
been introduced Into,, indoor athletics
anil contests havo bo?U"iiinuguratcd in
which the contestant 5 pull on cleats
nailed to tho floor six feet apart. Tho
rope used is n thrce-strauded seasoned
manilla, four inches in t'ircttiufcrcnce.
The anchor men, whd aro the end men
of the teams, pass tho two ends around
their respective bodies over a heavy
metal belt worn to protect them.
Tho other members of the teams fall
Into lino lu front of the anchor men.
Tlio ropo is secured ju tho middlo by n
clamp controlled by tho referee. Every
man of both teams (seizes tho ropo
firmly, braces his feet against his
cleat, and at the firing of a pistol tho
rotereo releases the clamp aud both
teams fall backward, bringing tho rope
taut, with a terrific shock,
. Then comes tho tug. With desper
ate courago the well-trained athletes
pull and drag in au effort to draw the
others over. Tho captain shout words
of cucouragemeut aud givo tho signals.
Tlio referee watches tho ropo carefully
as it goes a foot or so cither way until
s-j , 1
linally by degrees it goes six feet to
one side or tho other. When this
point Is renehed tho team that has
gained that much advautarro has won
It is au exciting spoit. Dining the
teceut contests at San Francisco sonic
of tho tugs lasted over tuo hoiiis.it
taking Ireland that long to land Ger
many. The San Francisco alTair
brought out tho leadeis of society,
who crowded tho galleries nightly.
THE BEEF-EATERS LIE DOWN TO IT.
Parson Davies and a theatrical mana
ger saw the competion and recognized
its possibilities. Ho came east at once
and proceeded to arrange the necessary
preliminaries for a tug hi Chicago,
which is at present drawing as largo
crowds as did the San Francisco com
petitions. It Is an international con
test, and America, England, Frauce,
GePmauy, Scotland, Ii eland, Bohemia,
Italy, Africa and Canada arc all rep
resented. A Decision ltcversed.
A decision was pionotiuecd by tho
supreme court, Saturday, which will
prove interesting as bearing possibly
upon tho occupants of school lands
which the general government owu
but which the occupants refuse to va
cate in favor of railways to which tho
general government has granted right
S. C. Uecso and the Springfield Fire
Insurance Company sued tho Preicott
& Atizona Central It. It. Co. to recov
er tire value of Reese's house, burned
by the railroad's negligcuco in permit
ting ongino spatks o fall 011 it. The
company offered to prove that the
land on which the house stood did not
belong to Reese, but to the A. & P. R.
R. Co. Ex. Chief Justice Wright, who
presided at the trial refused to hear
this testimony because it was immate
rial and irrelevant.
Tho Supremo Court vci v promptly
decided to-day that "the law is settled
that a hoitso built by one person upon
tlio laml of another, without any
authority or agreement in respect
thereto, becomes a part of the realiti
and the property iu tho building rests
in the owner of the soil."
Tlio judgment in favor of Reese was
accordingly ictersed anda new trial
In closing the supreme couit re
marks: "As to tho instructions given
by tho court (meaning the court be
low) we deem it unnecessary to say
nioro than that they present an en
tirely new doctrine of romparathc
negligence by charging in effect that
if both patties to the suit were guilty
of ncgligenco in the premises, then the
negligence of tho one party was to be
balanced as against the uegligcnce of
the other and the jury directed to find
for the party least guilty iu this res
pect; and also to express our disap
proval of such or any doctrine of com
parative negligence, nnd our adherence
to the well settled doctrine of contrib
utory negligence, as applied to this
class of cases."
Justices Gooding, Kibbey and Sloan
roncur. Counsellor E. M. Sanford
appeared for tho winning railroad.
An Interesting Decision.
The Supremo Court at Phojiiiv, in
reversing the decision of the lower
court in tho caso of John Clay vs. tho
Kansas City Mining Company held
that a U. S. land patent was unsaleable
collaterally whoro tho government au
thorities had jurisdiction aud authority
to issue such a conveyance. In the ab
sence of such qualifications, the patent
was open to attack In any legal pro
ceeding. Tho company claimed that
the exemption of "know salines and
mines" from the pre-emption act de
prived the land ofllco of all authority
over such property. In reviewing tho
legislation and judicial ilectsions re
spectiug mineral lands the court con
cludes that tho government policy has
oyer been to exempt them front all
law other than thoso referring specially
to mineral claims. Tho precise point
in this caso has never, apparently,
been decided bofore, although it lias
becu construed, In atinlogus eirctim
stances,, under tho town site aud pla
cer acts. Plaintiff Clay's coiitempla-
tlnu that the laml ollica was tins liual
judge as to the existence of mineral,
w'as pronounced altogether untenable,
as that power was not mentioned,
whilo various other essentials on entry
and final proof were left with tho au-
thoritics to determine. It was there
fore hold that tho refusal of ovldonco
offered by tho Kansas company that,
at the time of pre-emption patent, tho
mining claims wcro known to pre-enip.
tors, amounted to au error which call
for reversal and a uew trial. Justices

The SIucJi discussed Question, Should

tion that has been much discussed of

occupied by the gentler sex. As me

Tho arguments thus far adduced
create au impression that the subject
can only bo approached from a very
limited number of directions. The re
formers declaro it unjust and unreas
onable that a man may fall in lo c
w itli a woman and tell her so, while
she, howeer deeply her aOections may
bo centered upon him, must restrain
her feelings and hold her peace until a
formal declaration comes from him.
On tlio other hand the contention is
made that, if a woman with her ad
miraolo tact, bcreaptivatinggraecs, her
speaking eyes and kindly acts, cannot
make her adored appreciate what is in
her Utittering little heart, she had bet
ter withdraw from the effort and biiug
her charms to bear upon someone who
is not too stupid to appreciate them
and is bold enough to ask for their
possessor. This argument, it must be
admitted, though made against the re
formers, seems like a conscession of
the 1 ight to propose by looks and ac
tions, the prohibition being only against
an outspoken avowal.

Hut if any fair maid finds herself iu
the embarrassing strait of having a
lover too modest or too much con
strained by surrounding 1 lrcumstanccs
to put his fate to the test, let her rise
to the emergency, and by making a
plump proposal, save the happiness of
two hearts. It is her royal right, for
"the attitude of a woman toward a
man is that of a queen toward a sub
ject." Nor does she lack the moral
support of precedent, for' in several
ailier instances and the more modern
romance, Walter Besant's "Children
of Gibeon," the heroine loses nothing

The Hnllrond Outlook.
Tho presence in the city of Mr. N.
K. Mastcn, financial agent of the
Southern Pacific, and tho well known
firm of railroad contractors, Grant
Bros., naturally calls forth much talk
concerning tho immediate intention of
the Southern Pacific as to lis declared
put'poRR of extending tho line from
this city to Prescott. Vice President
Crocker who was is Fheonix last -week
stated to a Republican repot ter that
tlio road would bo built at once. Im
mediately afterward Win. Hood, chief
engineer of the Southern Pacific, with
a forco of men came down and ran
over the line. Ho was followed by
Grant Bros., and now wo have the
financial agent of tho company all of
which points to a speedy commence
ment of operations. Ou tho part of
thoSauta Fe, reports arc fully as en
couraging, aud actual woik will begin
this week at the Ash Fork cud. Gov
ernor Murphy, who is understood to
largely represent the Santa Fe interests
in this territory, says there U abso
lutely no question but that work will
be pushed with all compatible speed
till it is finished.
In addition to tlic&o enterprises', the
Peninsular road which is now under
construction from Sail Qucnlin, Lower
California, to Yuma, lias this rity as
an objective point; aud tho Cuyainaca
aud Eastern road out of S.iu Diego
through 'tho San Jacinto mountains
and across tho Sal ton basin, is headed
directly towards Phceni.x and from thiji
'City to Denver.

Intervlewlnir An Engineer.
I thought ft 0111 the general appear
ance of the man, and from the way he
looked up every time the whistle sound
ed, that he was a railroad engineer,
and when I made bold to ask the ques
tion I found I was right. After we had
conversed for a few minutes on general
topics, I asked:
"I suppose you have had your share
of narrow escapes?"
"les, butuoton the rails," here
plied. I was once shot at iu a sa
loon, and I onco fell off the roof of a
church. I never had au accident ou
"Were you never flagged for a bridgo
carried away by a freshet just iu time
to prevent an awful calamity?"
"Never; bridges always all right."
"Ever almost crash into another
"But you're run over people?"
"Never did sir. People ahvavs rot.
out of mj way."
"You havo at least been very anxious
when rushing through the darkness
with hundreds of lives iuyour keeping."
"Yes anxious to get home. I sun-
pose, but I don't remember an3-,partic-
mar instance." . ...ia , .

after pausing to take breath, I asked:
"V ero you ever startled by thinking
you saw an open switch when too lato
to stop the train?"
"No sir; the switches are always all
O. K.," he replied.
"I have been told that some engines
seemed to be possessed by human in
telligence?" "Yes, I suppose so, but we dont tisc
that kind on our road."
"Many brave men have died w itli .
their hand on the trottle."
"I presume so, but I don't want. to
die that way. I want to die at homo
in my bed."
I was determined to get something
out of him for a sketch, and so I per
sisted: "Did you never havo your fireman
go crazy while on a run?"
"But you must have been prepared

"No, Sir, I never have. You don't

month. That's about all there is to it,
and if 3011 are afterperilotts adventures

I understand that they take their lives
Iu their itauds every day in tho year."
Collisions Decerning Too Frequent.
The Railroad Gazette, in its last
issue, makes its monthly ictiort of ac
cidents occurring on American rail
ways for November, and the statement
.show that during the month thero
were 226 accident, in which sixty
persons were killed and 807 injured,
it being the worst record shown in
many a month for years. The worst
featuro of the .slatemcnt is that 112 of
thc.se accidents resulted from collision.
A superiuteiidont, vesterday, in speak
ing of this, said that something must
bo done to check tho reckless manner
of railroading which is now seemingly
on the increase. The business In No
vember was heavy, and more trains
were ran than ordinarily, but this is
no excuse, as the more trains the great
er tho care should be iu moving them; ' '
at any rate, there is no reason for such
a number of collisions In thirty days, '
and it shows a recklessness sommv here
which should bo severely punished. 'A.
few good examples in this direction
would do much to cheek this haphaz
ard way of doing business.
Tho New Orleans Timoi Domneistt.
says: "A locomotive, to-day does three
times as much Utilucss as ten v ears,
ago, a passoiigi-r ear carries four times
as many pasxengers. a freight rat tm'cu
as much freight and each employe doC3s
twice as'mucli woik ;h formerly."
