A SPECIAL TKAIN FOR HI3 NIB3.
Miss Clara Sfigf , who lias been in poor
health for the past two years, underwent
a severe surgical operation yesterday
afternoon. Her troubles were similar to
that of T. J. Koliinson. The operation
was one which required the very best of
medical skill. Ir. W. F. Knoll, profes
sor of surgery in the Chicago Home
opathic college, performed the operation,
assisted by Pr. Kinyon, ot this city and
Dr. Wat.ck, of Davenport. The case is
progressing favorably so far.
Hoard of Kqualizatlnn.
The county board of equalization ad
journed at noon today. They made no
change merely a few corrections, and
by unanimous vote they decided to let
the assessment stand as assessed. The
members of the board some years ago
thought it was their duty to cut down
the towns which they represented, and
discriminate against other townships,
which bad no representation on the committee.

Cincinnati, July 3. As brown as a berry
and erect as an arrow, John L. Sullivan
emerged from his siecial cor in the Grand
Central station at 2 o'clock yesterday after
noon, and quickly made his way by a private
door to await a carriage, tn which he was
driven at a break neck pace to the Burnet
bouse. On the train, a siieoial of two sleep
ers and a lwurgana car, came his bodyguard;
Charley Johnson and. Jimmy Wokely, his
backers; William Muldoon and Mike Cleary,
bis trainers; Joe Cohurn, Lord Dishington
Murphy, Tom O'Hrien, Phil Lynch, Yank
Sullivan, Mike Welch, Frank Moran and
I'luyed a llmiu on the Cnrloua.
In order to deceive the crowd, which col
loctert evon as early as noon to wait untJ
after 4 o'clock, the timo when the special
was exetod to nnive, a clever ruse waa
worked. Big Leonard Tracy, a six-foot
girvnt of iiiiinenso proportions, wns clad in
sweaters and an overcoat and hu-tlud out by
Muldonn and Cleary, stopping only to delude
a couple of ronortcrji into the idea that he
was tb bij; fellow. Th deception workdd
admirably, for a half hour later Sullivan ap
peared and walked through the station with
out attracting any notice, whatever.
Testing Uis lusele and Agility.
At 5 o'clM'k ISiillivan, attended only by
Muldoon and floury, went to tbe Cincinnati
gymnasium an 1 into the private exercising
rooms. There for an hour and a bait the
champion and bis trniners toaseil a big
twelve-pound ball until Muldoon and Cleary
fairly gave up. Siillivnp, who appeared to
thoroughly enjoy tbe exercise, laughed as
oftn a the heavy mUsile beat down Mul
doon's arms and thumped against his breast.
Then he seized a skipping rope and made TOit
akipa before stopping, when ho was in a glow
of perspiration. He appeared to be as fresh
as when he started, and bis wind showed no
perceptible fatigue. After a rub-down and
a bntb he went to his hofxd and received
few friends after supper.
Th. FavorltM In Hatting.
Early this morning the special train re
sumed its journey toward the fighting ground,
the crowd being augmented by a large dele

KILRAIN IN FINE TRIM.
A Visitor from Kiiglsmd No Special for
Baltimore, July 8. All arrangements
for the departure of tbe Rilrain party have
lieen completed, and it is certain that they
will leave this afternoon some time, but the
hour has not been definitely settled. Kil
rain kept up his work yesterday. Mitchell
remained with him until tbe afternoon,
when he carno in to meet I'ony
.Moore, bis rntuer In-law, who came
from England to see the fight. Tbe
latter arrived in this city at C:3U o'clock, and
was at once taken to Kilrain's house, where
he remained for a time and was then driven
out to the training quarters toiri-ther with
Mrs. Kilrain and Mrs. Mitchell.
I'ony Looks Him Over.
The meeting between the Englishman and
Kilrain was very cordial, and after greetings
bad been exchanged Pony looked Jake over.
He said he was more than pleased with his
condition. Said he: "If Sullivan gets away
with you he must tie even a better man than
he has been made out to me. ou are in as
perfect trim as you can possibly reach, and
barring any mishap I can not se bow you
can lose the light." "All I ask,r said Jake,
fair play, and If Sullivan prove tbe better
there is no one who will more quickly
acknowledge it than I; but I propose to put
him to the test. During the afternoon
cablegram was received from Kiehard K.
Fox, directed from Ixmdon to Jake Kilrain.

A l'luntre Into a Chasm
Latkr. It is now known that tbe cause of
the wreck was the washing out of a culvert.
due to the heavy rains of the past few davs.
The train was passing over the culvert when
the track gave way and the whole train
went through to the bottom, twenty -five feet
lielow. All of the cars, live in number, with
the engine, were piled up in a hopelessly con
fused mass. The darkness which reigned
over all for a moment was quickly dispelled
as the woodwork of the ears was ignited by
the names from the lamps.
Dreadful Deaths of the Doomed.
It was only a few minutes after that the
WTeck was all ahlaz-, nnd to the horror of
bruised and broken limls an.l mangled bodies
was added the certainty of a fearful death by
fire. Many bad gone to their death quickly,
but the shrieks anil groans of the wounded
pinned down by the heavy timbers and by
roils of twisted iron, as the flames slowly
crept toward them and began their awful
work, made the scene one of intense horror.

Watervillk, N. Y., July S. In address
ing the literary societies of Colby university
last night upon "The Annexation of Canada,"
Gen. Benjamin F. Butler concluded thuat
"The problem seems to me to be this: Does
Canada desire a union with tbe United
States) If she so signifies her w ish in a recog
nizable form, England has no power to pre

has no power to enact it She may throw
Canada off as a dependency, but she canuot

The More Feasible I'lun.
"Would not the more feasible, the more
sensible, the more statesmanlike anJ effect
ive manner of bringing together the United
States and Canada be to enter into negotia
tions for that purp-we, carefully and in the
most friendly spirit, the nogotiators in
charge having only one Idea in common
that is, how can thu two peoples best get to
gether? Itesult of I .lite Negotiations.
"Our late attempte-i negotiations and en
actments, lor diplomacy it could not be
called, will only result in raising ill-feeling
on the part of our neighbors, Iiecauso of the
annoying thought that fur the first
time in the history of diplomacy bus a
province lsn left to carry on a diplomatic
struggle with a nation almost without the
aid of the iiarent country, under a threat
from the nation that tbe consequences of a
failure of treaty were to bs visited on the
province alone. (
Culmination of the Idea.
Whv should not the diplomacy be that ne
gotiations should be approached with a view
of uniting tbe two adjacent English speaking
peoples living side by side in America, in the
same commercial and business conditions be
tween each othor, with or without a zollver
ein, as may be determined, leaving Great
Britain, whose institutions depend upon tha
same constitutional provisions, an l wnose
laws of freedom give equal protection to their
several peoples, later on, when her interest or
safety demands, to come into a like compact
with the United States and Canada, a league
against the world, if any part of tbe world
should see fit to take a stand, which none
would or could successfully do."

Governor Fifer's reasons for his action are
that Ju ge Moran, who presided when
Mackin was convicted; Judge Griunell, who
was sta'e's attorney, and a host of other
good citizens had written personally to him
that the thought Markin had been punished
enough, and that Mackin's conduct in
tbe nitent!Aiy bad been unex-
ceptiona ln. He says that whether
Mack in ought to be pardoned or not it is cer
tain that many first class citizens think he
should bi, and had so expre-ned themselves.
The pinion makes a citizen of Mackln, which

MICHAEL DAVITT TESTIFIES.
lie Is in Invor of I'bvslral Force if Feast
ble A Pciul In the league.
I.ONDiN, July 3. Michael Davitt testified
Ik-fore the Parncll commission yesterday. Hi
s tid that the llaii-ua-Oacl included some ot
the best Irishmen in America, ana was no
more a murder club than the Carlton club of
Ixjndon. He declared himself opposed to the
use of dynamite, but in favor of ph3-sieal
force if a resort to tho latter seemed to prom
ise a reasonable chance of success.
Murilerers In tbe ('Ian.
Witness stated that he believed murders
had been committed by members of the Clan
ua-trael. but he did not believe that these
were sanctioned by tbe governing body of
the organizaeion or its leaders. Witness ad
mitted that in a certain letter which be
wrote he used the word "pen," meaning
Declined to Give a Name.
When questioned as to the name of the
person to whom this letter was written
Iiavitt declined to answer, stating that
to divulge bis name might possibly result in
serious injury to the man, and w itness did
not wish to wrong him. Justice Hannen, be
ing apiealed to to compel the witness to
disclose the name of his correspond;mt, stated
that while he respected the motives for re
ticence which actuated the witness, these
could not lie ativptcd in a court of justice as
alisolving a witness from his obiir-ition to
testify. He directed the witness t'. answer.
Pavitt esplnmed that the lett-r was writ
ten to a man, a nieinlier of the league, who
harlored an intense hatred for another mem
ber, and wished to murder him. Witness
wrote to the man, apwaring to sanction the
mutder, but in reality bis purpose was to
gain time, so that he miht rite to the
man's superior oilicers in the league. He
did at once write to two of these officers, ask
ing them to dissuade the man from his pur
pose. One of these two men to whom he
wrote was a dear friend, who is now in
America. Witness now took the opportu
nity to pul.ti. lv apivnl to him to permit wit
ness to Uvule his name.
