COMFORT FOR THE BOXERS.
Brooklyn Clubs PriUlcgcd to Give Sparring
and Boxing Shous.
Brooklyn, March 20. Jacob Brenner, coun
sel to the police commissioner, handed down
to-day an Important opinion regarding box
ing and sparring bouts. Ho holds that any
athletic orgauizatlon may givo exhibitions of
the sport when done simply for the purpose
of exhibiting skill nnd science. In supjiort of
this statement ho cites a number of laws in
connection with nthlctles. He says, however,
that the courts do not hold to bo legal fight
ing for money or the gathering of disorderly
persons to witness such tin event. He also
says that the allegation of scientific points
will not avail in ungloved contests when tho
evidence shows that a genuine fight was In
tended. After citing several laws and section
458 of the penal code, Mr. Brenner savs:
"It is. therefore, my opinion that any
reputable organization or institution can give
a boxing or sparring exhibition If it is con
ducted in a proper manner, provided that
knockouts or a purso or tho drawing of a
disorderly audieneo aro not added to the at
tractions. All theso exhibitions should be
under the surveillance of tho police."

Joo Mulvcy is dubious about his chances
for getting a regular place on the team. "I
feel all right, bet then I am notfas young as a
few years ago, and there ere several lively
youngsters among the candidates for per
manent positions. In tho practice work theso
young players will show to great advantage,
but in the long ruu I guess I could hold my
own. I will do my level best to keep up with
the procession and bono to succeed."

To tho Editor of The Times:
A small Item in The Times of yesterday 19
calculated to make a wrong Impression as to tho
cause of John J. O'Xelll, the contt-stant for the
peat of Congressman Joy, of SL IaiuIs. Without
going into tho merits of tho case, I will say that
I was in SL Louis at tho election of 1S92, and If
ever n man was fraudulently defeated at an
election that man Is John J. O'XellL
Whether his constituents come from "Kerry
Patch" or not does not matter, but it is a fact
that in all the political mei-t'ugs held In St.
Louis during tho campaign of 1?91 his mectincs
were notable for the number ot men In attend
ance who earned their own llviug. .Mr. O'Neill
has shown himself u friend of the masses during
his long career as a nitional legislator, and 1
think It is but a tardy net of justice on the part
of Ike party with wbcui be.anlliates to givo him
the seat to which he was honestly elected.

The Boatncr Resolution.
The Judiciary CommUteo of the Houso yes
terday considered the' Boatuer Union IVcilIc
resolution, of which tho Committee on Pacific
Railroads is trying to secure control. It was
decided that the legal questions invoh cd in
tho resolutipn wero such as to give tho Judi
ciary CommUteo concurrent jurisdiction over
it with the Pacific Railroads Committee. It
was thought desirable, however, in .o mnko
a contest to control tho resolution, but to let
tho House decido which committee should
handle the subject. A statement to this effect
will bo made by Chairman Culberson, of the
Judiciary Committee, when the fpiestion
comes before the House.
Cherokee Bond Contract.
Tho final steps In tho award of tho contract

arising from tho sale of tho Cherokee Strip to

of the nation; B. T. Wilson, President King,
of tho Union Trust Company, and Wheeler

Representative Sweet, of Idaho, has pre
pared a privileged resolution for an investi
gation of alleged reports that members of tho
House Committee on Colnngo had given
assurances to President Cleveland that if the
Bland seigniorage bill was signed no freo
coinage bill would be reported. Tho resolu
tion calls for tho names of tho persons who
havo given such assurances, together with
their nuthority for thus committing a House
committee to such a course of action or non
action. To Authorize Railroad Pooling.
Martin A, Kn.-u-p, Interstate Commerce
Commissioner, yestorday morning argued
against tho amendment to the Interstate com
merce law proimsed by Senator Gorman
which seeks to repeal the prohibition of pool
ing. Mr. Knapp regards 11 permission to the
railroads to pool ns desirabio, because likely
to do away with unjust discriminations be
tween shippers, But objected to the' amend
ment because it did not vest in tho commis
sion power to fix rates.
Xaval Appropriation Bill.
Tho naval appropriation bill as prepared by
tho Sub-committee on Xuvnl Affairs was laid
boforo tho full committee yesterday. In pre
paring tho bill tho sub-committeo followed
very closely the estimatessubmittcd by the Sec
retary of the Navy, making but few changes.
Xo new naval vessels aro provided for in
tho bill in its present form. It is probable,
however, that provisos for threo or four new
torjiedo boats will be inserted by tho full com
mittee. The Victim Identified.
The colored man who was found hanging
in the woods near itockville, aid., last San

SUGAR SUFFERED A DECLINE
Break of 3 1-2 Per Cent, on a Rumor
OTHER STOCKS GENERALLY FIRM
Owing to a Enmor That the Pool Was liqui
dating, Sngar Broko Badly Bailroad
Stocks Were Firm, with Blight Advance
and Good Baying late in tho Bar.
New Yobk, March 20. Tho speculation in
tho shares of the American Sugar Refining
Company was tho great feature on the Stock
Exchnnge to-day. With the exception of a
slight movement in Burlington and Quincy
und St Paul, the trading in tho rest of the
list was sluggish, nnd tho sales of all com
bined did not equal tho transaction in sugar.
At the opening sugar declined one-eighth and
then rose three-quartcre.but before 11 o'clock
a well-defined selling movement in the shares
had been inaugurated which sent prices down
rapfdly until 88? was touched shortly nfter 1
o'clock, making a decline of three-quarters
from the closing figures ot yesterday. A
largo selling order, executed through the
brokers of a well-known bear operator,
started tho downward movement and led to
tho beliof thnt tho sugur pool was liquidating.
Necessarily this caused a rush to sell on tho
part of many holders not in the clique.
Later in tho nftcrnoon thero were evidences
of strong buying in thostock, which caused a
recovery of 24" per cent, but in tho final
dealings tho selling was resumed and a re
action of 1 was made, tho closing being at
a decline of 3i per cent, on the day; the pre
ferred stock receded 't per cent. Tho gen
eral market opened linn at an advance of
yiH l:er cent, Chicago Gas making an ad
vance of 1 per cent in tho early dealings, but
quickly reacting Jf . Very little was done in
tho railway list until 11 o'clock, th j Industrials
occupying tho chief attention of the specu
lative fraternity. Xorthern Pacific preferred,
however, on small transactions, sold up )
per cent. Tho Uuctuatlons, except in sotno
of the SiecinUies. were confined within nar
row limits up to noon, but Chicago and Alton
roso 2 percent, and LMlsou Electric declined
)i per cent
During tho early afternoon tho break In,
sugar affected a few other shares unfavor
ably, but the main lody of tho market was
held very firmly, tho main feature being dull
ness. But later in tho dny speculation took
on a firmer tone and tho best buying of the
dny was seen, which sent up prices ( to 1 Jf ,
Burlington, Lead, Western Union, Rock
Island, Loulsvillo and Xoshvilic. Baltimore
nnd Ohio and Oregon Improement leading
tho upward movement The higher range of

Franklin Is Putting Up "The Times" Now.
Tho ancient Warner houso in Portsmouth,
X. II., is noted as being the oldest dwelling
in the city, but is chTelly interesting from the
fact that CoL Warner, who occupied tho
housu more than a century ago, engaged Ben
Franklin, in whoso electrical experiments lie
was interested, to erect a lightning rod on it.
Tnis was tho first lightning rod put up in
Xcw Hampshire, and it is still in uso alter a
service of 101 years.

AN INTERESTING TITLE TEST.
Litigation Ovcrthc Valuable Illodcctt Tract
of Property in the Northncst.
In Chief Justice Bingham's court yesterday
the caso of John J. Johnson against Knto
Yan Wyck came up for trial. This case,when
settled, will determine the tills to all the land
north of Rhode Island avenue from Lo Droit
Park to Connecticut avenue, as it all formerly
belonged to Samuel Blodgett, deceas ea. It
comprises nearly 400 acres, and upon it some
ot the most fashionable residences of the
northwest are situated.
Blodgett was owner of a lottery scheme,
and Robert S. Bickley drew tho capital prizo
of nearly S27.000. Blodgett did not pay the
prizo and BIckleybrought suit for the amount,
and upon salo being ordered to satisfy tbe
judgment 'Blodgttt's attorneys bid in nearly
all of the property. Sixteen suits have already
been entered by the heirs of Blodgett, but
non-suits wero entered in all cases except the
one of Johnson against Yan Wyck, which Is
for the lot on which Holy Cross church is
located. Tho attorneys in the ease are John
son & Armstrong for tho plaintiff and Judge
Mattlngly for the defendant
"I Tell You They Arc Daisies."
From tho Xew York Sun.
"Look here," said tho customer, '"these
cuffs have buttonholes on one side only."
Tho hnlcrda-her looked at the cuffs and
shrugged his shoulders resignedly.
"I am very sorry to havo put you to the
trouble of returning them," he said, "but our
girl catch us occasionally In spite of our
watchfulness. We employ 130 of them, nnd
nearly every one of 'em is jus watching her
chance to run In a job on us. You see, they
gpt a cent for every buttonhole they make.
Thero aro five buttonholes on a cuff, "and the
cuffs aro put in boxes eontalnlngn dozen pairs
each. We look through ovcry box. but can't
tako tho timo to examine each cuff separately.
They know that, and tako advantage of it. it
costs us dear, too, for if each girl fools us on
only ono buttonhole a duy it costs us about
10 n week, which eats up the profit on ngood
many dozen pairs of cuffs.
"In the sumo way they get tho better of us
on tho pearl buttons we uso for our shirts.
They cost us a cent apiece, and tho. way they
dlsappear is wonderiul. Scolding doesn't do
a bit of good, for thoy look as innocent as
angels. Frequently they havo the nerve to
wear the buttons they havo taken right in
our shop. I have often canght a dozen nt a
time with our buttons on their dresses. When
I make them surrender them thev are cross
and indignant I tell you thoy are daisies."
Hawthorne Like a Whale.
Dr. Holmes Is quoted as saying of Haw
thorno tho other day: "Ho went his solitary
way through Ufo like a whale through the
crowds of lesser fishes in tho sea. You might
stand in your boat and hurl your harpoon at
him as he passoJ it was hit or miss. If you
succeeded in bringing him to, ho was genial
enough company for a whilo. In his abstracted
Olympian way. If you missed, you would
hardly have another chance for a year."
