New York, Oct. 25. Tommy Burns
cached this city yesterday afternoon
and departed las't night on the steamer
Deutschland for England, where be
will meet "Gunner" Moir Dec. 5 before
the National Sporting club of London.
The bout was originally set for Nv.
23, but the club delayed it at the re
quest of Burns. .
Tommy showed no ill effects from
his recent experience in a train
wreck, and his sudden appearance in
this city caused considerable surprise.
He had given no intimation of his
destination when he left the Pacific
coast. He said that Johnson's action
in taking on Jim Flynn showed that it
was the colored boxer and not himself
who was trving to evade a match.

NEW RECORD IN 100-MILE RUN

Between Chicago and Milwaukee.
Chicago, Oct. 25. Albert Corev, th-3
wonderful French marathon runner of
the First Regiment A, C'., finished his
100-mile run from Milwaukee yester
day and succeeded in clipping SI min
utes off the record of Henry Schmeh;,
which has stood for nearly a quarter
of a century. Corey ran the entire
distance with machine-like precision,
covering the 100 miles in 18 hours aul
33 minutes. Corey's run is one of tli-e
greatest long distance feats ever ac
complished in this country. Perfect
weather and road conditions helped
him to smash the record which he
failed to lower in a trial three years
ago. being hindered by losing the ro id

Country Members of Illinois
Senate Send Primary Bill
Along by Big Vote.
AMENDMENTS ARE OMITTED
Second Reading Passed While Many
Cfiicagoans Are at Home in
Springfield, 111., Oct. 25. The Ogles
by direct plurality primary bill has
found more friends in the senate than
had been anticipated by the most op
timistic supporters of the measure.
This fact developed at the session last
night and the combine is in a fair way
to be routed. A number of the Cook
county senators returned home witfc
an understanding that the amendments
proposed would not be brought up until
their return, next week. Last niglU,
however, the country members became
anxious to take action. Senator Clark
of Xook county, urged that it would be
unfair to tjje absent members to take
action and moved that consideration be
delayed. Senator Dunlap said he had
heard that certain members had gone
to Chicago to get their orders and would
return next week with a new bill. Sena
tor ; Henson ' of Decatur also said he
wanted a chance to vote on the bill.
Clark's motion was put to a vote and
lost, 12 to 21. This was a knockout
fori the combine and the Oglesby bill
was called to a second reading.
s Ma a PtrrnuotiM liny.
It was a streuuous day for the sen
ate. The panic in Wall street was not
a marker to the panic among the reac
tionaries in the state senate who have
been bending their energies and com
bining their thought on a plan that
would' save the delegate and the con
vention and yet give to the people the
semblance of a direct nomination cf
The passage through' the house of
the Oglesby bill in unamended form
was a body jjlow to the so-called senate
organization. It knocked them off their
feet. It dazed them, and they have not
yet recovered their equilibrium. So dis
concerted were they that even after a
feverish night they were unable to an
nounce any plan of action beyond a re
quest for recess until late evening on
the; plea that the committee needed
more time to draff its primary bill. -
