E.il'oni'rrs-inian J. II. Murphy, of
Davenport, arrived home (mm Washing
too Saturday ol'Ut, where be Jias been
enKSged tim e tlio opening of congress In
work for the Hennepin canal. lie It
only tiaca for the holidays and will return
In the national capital again after tbe
Brtjlay of the y ear anil remain until
tome artiiiU it taken relative to the mott
important waterway project of tbe timet.
"Tbe canal's rhaocra are very ttrli-ht
Indeed." said tbn exeongreasnian. wben
sera In his ofllce in Davenport by an All
ocs representative vesttnlij. "Tbe
chi n e of (Jen. Henderson, as chairman
of tbe committee on rivers aud harbors I
regard as exceedingly favorable to tbe
canal. For the appointment, while a
deserved compliment to tbe Illinois con
gressman, is alto a very Important factor
indeed in tbe fate of tbe Hennepin. Tbe
act will have iU weight even should any
recommendations of tbe committee be
stricken out. at the chairman has the selec
tion of the other two members of tbe
conference committee, to you see that be
ran fit it so that any recommendation!
tbtt arc stricken out may be rt Inserted."
"What do you tblnk of tbe general
construction of the river and harbor commit--
?'' asked the reporter.
"Relative to the canal, I consider it
jrond. For Instance, you may depend
on tlis chairman, of course, and also upou
(Irnsvi-nrr. of Ohio. Hermann, of Oregon.
Clark, of Wisconsin, Stephenson, of
Michigan, Dlanehard. of Texas, Catcbings,
of Missiuisxippi, Oibson, of Maryland,
and Stewart, of Texas. A large ma
jority of tbe committee, as you see,
may lie considered friends of tbe Henne
pin either upon their record or upon their
positivi declaralioni to me and toothers
known to be enthusiastic canal advo
cates The cutlook, therefore, I regard
as Brstclass Id every way."
"Ifci you regard Speaker lined as
much of an opponent of tbe ranal as be
bits been rrprrsenled to be?"
"Well you can't tell very much about
Mr. Hetd. Ha bat never plartd himself
on record with regard to tbe canal He
has alwavs rather dodged It."
' lie has not shown much opposition in
his selection of tbe rlvtr and harbor com
mittee has he? "
-Why, bless yuur tout tut. He bat
litnortd bit own stales-tbe New F.nsr
land states eotiMjr, and I ran tell you
what be bad no easy thing to do in put
ting Congressman Henderson at tbe bead
of this committee, experienced and popu
lar as the general is, ami bis friends had
a rather up hill job of it for this reason
in their efforts for bis appointment. I'll
tell you why. Illinois has received tbe
chairmanship of the Ave most impor
tant committees in the house, and
iih this geographical prominence
lb spcakvr bad bis bands full
in providing fur tbe other sections. Look
at tbe list of committee and see how Hi
linois fared: Cannon Is thairnisn of tbe
committee on appropriations, Henderson
of riven and harbors. Howell, of ejec
tions; Tsvson. of public lands; Hitt of
foreign affairs. So you mill see but for
tbe fact that lien. Henderson was second
senior member of the bouse, be might
have been ignored in the arrangement of
tbe committees "
"What is tl.e giiirral sentiment to
ward the canal lu Washington?"
"I have fonod a much better feeling
there toward the canal limn ever before.
Tbe measure bus many friends, and Is In
coming more and more important. For
instsnte. your obedient srvint it ad
dressed on the street as 'Jerry Hennepin
Murphy.' So jou will see that all asso
ciations iib tbe great project are recog
nized." The Chicago .WV says of Mr. Mur
phy In histfforls in behalf of tbe canal:
That One specimen of the western en
thusiast and bustler, ex-Conuressman
Jere Murphy, of Iowa, is till in Wash
ington working for the Hennepin ranal.
Mr. Murphy's name in full is Jeremiah
Henry Murphy, but the middle name he
has changed to Hennepin, and always
registers at hotels and signs bis letters,
"Jere Hennepin Murphy." If there were
two or tbrre of this sort of Murplitsin
town the Hennepin canal would in all
probability be built in five years from

is now first-class, and be is doing roval
work for tbe enterprise, which alrea'dy
owes bint so much, and which be will
stick to till be wins or den'h comes into
tbe ring and knocks him out. For two
or three years Mr. Murphy has hern
troubled wiiu an affliction which literally

an average of liftrui hours a day in bed
for more than a vear. Now be Is himself

o'clock yesterday morning. The editor had
been steadily sinking for some time, and it
became evwkut last nlht that his death was
stone at bantL The cause of bis decaase was
typhoid-pneumonia. The bulletin carrying
the metsiage of death waa given to the coun
try a few minutes after the announcement
was made that life had taken its flight. Mr.
Grady was generally accepted as a true rep
resentative of the new south. His speech at
the New Kngland dinntT in New York two
years ago was the best exprewion ever given
to the sentiment of the -souiiKer and more
prntfrmsive element in his part of the coun

speaker, and the prw everywhere always
had a good won! for hiin.

with death," and so it seemed with every

At 2 o'ch-k in the afternoou of Christmas

From every section of tbe state has come tbe
request that his tiody might lie in state that

lias consented that tbe remains shall rent in
the First Mid hrsl ist church, of which Mr.
Grady was a leading member, from V o'clock

Ills Life Briefly Sketched.
Henry W. Ura.lv was born in Athens, Ga.,
May IT, PCd, and was educated at tbe uni
versity of Georgia and tlie university of Vir
ginia. His father was a wealthy business
man of Athens, and was killed at Petersburg
while leading the Twenty-fifth North Caro
At the aire of 20 Mr. Grady was editor of
Tim Commercial, published at Roost, Go,
NulH,iwtitly he started Tbe Herald In
lsTll The Herald went to the wall, and Mr.
Urs.ly found himself out of a job. He went
to New York and was engaged on The Herald
stuff. He staid on that pal- for two years.
In 1su he Istuglit a fourth iiitttrest in The
Atlanta Constitution. From this point bis
advance up the ladder wa rapid, and at the
time of his dent h be was at the top round.
He leaves a w ifo aud two bright young chil
dren. Mr. Grady thought that a paper could not
have too much sensational news. Although
the editor had managed nuu.y political cam
paigns he bud steadfastly refused to acivpt
any otliist. He was tendered tlie position of
eoUKre-Kiuan from the state at large several
years ago, t,ut would not accept iu
Siwaking of hi nationality recently Mr.
Grady sui.l; -My grandfather was !rixh,but
my father was American and southern by
birth. He was a Union man, but entered the
war on tlie southern side, of course."
Tributes from the Tress.
Chic aho. IVc. 24. Tlie premall over tbe
country join in the sorrow over tbe sad
event of Henry W. tirsdy's death. His
journey to Ronton was probably tlie cause of
bis death, as he went there contrary to the
advice of his physician, and was taken ill be
fore he U-ft. The Herald. Journal and others
of that city all eulogiz the dead editor and
condole wit h the south over bis loss to that
section and the nation. The same tone pre
vails in the paper of New York, Philaiiel
phia, Chicago and other northern cities,
while south it gists without saying that there
is nothing lacking of eulogy.

In the course of his remarks at the New Eng

Grady as follows: "We forget all differ-em-es
of opinion and reniemls-r only bis
chivalry, tsitriotixra and genius. He was
the leader of the New South, and died in the
great work of Impressing its marvelous
growth and national aspirations upon tbe
willing ears of tbe north. Hut death at tbi t

on all wheat in the province of Manitoba
and Northwest territories, amounting to
about 4,000,000 jusbels. It It an open secret
that tbe firm se sored a pointer from the Do

GOVERNOR HOVEY'S LITHOGRAPHS.

son, of the govt rnor's office, was the subject
of severe criticism by tlte executive yester
day for a blund x that the latter thiuka will
make him rid culous to similar official!
throughout the Union. Some days ago tbe
governor bad a number of lithographs of
himself made t accommodate persons who
want his picture. When tbe litho
graphs were brought into the office they were
placed on Nelson's desk. Not knowing the
governor's purj ose in having so many of his
pictures on nan t, and thinking it would be
good thing to distribute thorn over the
country, Kelson mailed one to each of the
governors of the different states. Below
each lithograph is a fac-simile of tbe gov
ernor's autogra ih.
When Hovey inquired for tbe lithographs
yesterday and f tund what Nelson hod done
be tofct his tem ier and spoke of tbe folly of
such an act in language that Nelson could
not fail to nn ierstand. Nekton suggested
that be write tc the several executives, say
ing that a mistt ke had occurred in sending
the lithographs bat the governor vetoed the
proposition, sa; ing that be did not "propose
to be made a foil of twice."

In an interview with ths correspondent of

England with a uberol commercial policy in
southeast Africa. He laid great stress upon

complain of the Portuguese administration.
On tbe contrary, he asserted, they greatly

JEM SMITH THE SLUGGER.
tdsgmeerul Onteome of His Fight with
nlnvln, the Australian.
Lomdos, Dec. 24. The Smith-Slavin fight
took place yesterday morning on private
property near Bruges, Belgium, and was
notable for nothing except to demonstrate
that Jem Smith is a "no gooder," that bis
friends on the ground were principally
toughs who did not intend that a fair fight
should take place, and that the referee did
not have the grit to do the right thing
and give the fight to Slavin. From
tbe start to the finish of the four
teen rounds fought, Slavin Ivwted Smith,
knocking bim down at will. When Smith's
friends saw this, they began a determined ef
fort to break up the fight, repeatedly strik
ing Slavin when he came within reach, and
finally leaving the ringside in a body. Smith
going with them. The latter, however, w ent
bock and fought one round, his friends keep
ing up a continual attack ou Slavin as Slavin
pounded Smith. Slavin claimed the fight,
but tbe referee declared it a draw.
Dlsgasted with Jem Smith.
The ruffianly conduct of Smith's friends at
tbe ringside has disgusted every lover of
fair play in the kingdom, and the unjust and
cowardly decision of the referee has added
to the exasperation of sporting men. One
good result has come from tbe fight, how
ever, w hich affords a good deal of consola
tion to all men who take interest in pugilistic
matters. The status of Smith as a prize tighter
is as definitely settled as though be had won
the battle easily or bad been fairly knocked
out as be certainly would have been bad
tbe fight been permitted to go on.

several occasions within a month falls of
earth have taken phice, and the owners of
the mitt?, Alvinza Hayward and W. 8. Ho

It does not appear that any precautionary
measures were taken, however, and the men

and in a few minutes after the terrible land
