HONORS TO ADMIRAL PORTER.
The Naval Hero Consigned to the Crave
with Importing Ceremonies.
Washington Citv, Feb. 18. The funeral
of the late Admiral Porter occurred from
his residence yesterday afternoon, and was
at tended by the president, members of the
cabinet, naval officers and officials, the
former in uniform, and many members of
congress, as well as numerous visitors
from other points, who came here to at
tend the obsequies. The cortege to escort
the remains to Arlington formed as fol
lows: One hundred marines from the barracks here
Five hundred cavalrymen and artillerymen
from Washington 1 arracks and Fort Myer.
Six hundred members of the local Grand Army
Six hnndred infantrymen from the District Na
. tionid guard and naval G. A. R. posts
from Philadelphia, of which Ad
miral Porter was a member.
The Admiral's Wishes Observed.
It was the admiral's wish, often ex
pressed during bis life, that after death
bis body should not lie in state. The
body, therefore, was not exposed to gen
eral public view. It wa also his wish
that he might be buried from his home
All the officers of the navy in this city
attended the funeral in full uniform. The
nervices were held at the house because
Mrs. Porter was not in condition to go to
the church. The Rev. Dr. Douglass, of
St. John's church, officiated. As the ac
commodations at the house were limited
the invitarions to the services were neces
sarily confined to the personal friends of
the family and the officials of the govern
ment. The body was borne by eight sail
ors. Honorary Pall Itearers.
The honorary pall bearers were: Vice
President Morton, Senator Manderson,
Senator McPherson, Senator Hawley, Gov
ernor Pattison, Maj. Gen. Schofield, Rear
Admiral Rodgers, ltear Admiral Howell,
Rear Admiral Crosby, Rear Admiral
Stevens, Rear Admiral Almy, Rear Ad
miral Wordeu, Rear Admiral Jouett, Rear
Admiral Queen, Gen. Joseph E. Johnson
(late Confederate States army). Repre
sentative Boutelle. Tiie remains of the
late admiral were dressed in full uniform
with G. A. R. badges on the breast and
also the decoration of the Sons of the
American Revolution and the badge of
Porter Post of Massachusetts. They rested
in a casket of royal purple velvet with sil
ver handles and ornaments. Upon a silver
tablet on the lid was the inscription
name, date of birth, and death.
Arrival at the Cemetery.
The bead of the funeral cortege entered
Arlington cemetery at 4:30 o'clock and
slowly wended its way t the last resting
place of the dead admiral, situated on an
incline, not more than 100 feet from Gen
Sheridan's grave, and from which a mag
nificent view of the national capital is ob
tained. The full Mariue band and the
' Third artillery band took a position be
yond the crowd of distinguished people,
while 100 marines filed in single file iu
front of the grave. The casket was then
, borne from the hearse by eight robust
i tailors, accompanied by the pall-bearers
.and members of the senate and house
committees. The Rv. Dr. Bigelow, as
sistant pastor of St. John's church, took
his position at the grave and read the
burial services of the Episcopal ritual.
Uf "Earth to Banh, Ashes to Ashes."
The two bands then played "Nearer My
God to Thee," with impressive effect, after
which the Grand Army of the Republic
representatives read their service1 for the
dead. A representative of the organiza
tion stood at either end of the grave and
made responses to the other as the ritual
requires. They concluded their ceremony
by casting into the grave a wreath of lau
rel. During the ceremony at th3 grave
the president and every member of the
cabinet, besides many of the highest offi
cials in naval and diplomatic affair-, stood
with heads uncovered. At the conclusion
of the Grand Army of the Republic's serv
ice the marines paid their last tribute to
the dead hero by firing three volleys of 100
guns each over the grave.

St. Loris. Feb. IS. Yesterday Gov

tee, received the following telegram from
Washington City: "The president has re
ceived the telegram of the executive com
mittee of the citizens of St. Louis asking
him to be present nt the funeral of the late
Gen. Sherman on Saturday night. The
president would leave nothing undone to
honor the memory of lln. Sherman, but
you will readily appreciate how impossi
ble it would be lor him now to leave
Washington for so long a time as would
be required for the trip to St. Louis and
Signed E. W. II.vi.ford,
Kailways Give Free Transportation.
The preparations for the obsequies are
well under way, and everything will be in
readiness long before the funeral train
arrives in this city. Governor Fraacis has
Si-ut telegrams to all the military organi
zations in the state informing them of the
offer of the railroad companies of free
transportation on the occasion of the
Sherman funeral, and requesting their
presence. As soon as replies are received
the information will b8 given Maj. H. L.
Morrill, and preparations for transport
ing the troops will be made.
The Legislature Will Ite There.
News has been received from Jefferson
City that the legislature will adjourn and
attend the obsequies in a body. The state
militia will turn out several thousand
strong, and a large force of Sons of Vet
erans is expected to join in the parade.
The Illinois G. A. II posts have called
meetings to take action, and a very strong
contingent is expected from that state.
Invitations l ave been s?nt to the militia
companies of neighboring states, and
many will attend, as the Illinois railroads
have offered free transportation.
St. Irfiuis Draped in ISlaek.
No previous occasion in St. Louis has
ever produced such an elaborate and ex
tensive public display of the dark em
blems of sorrow and mourning as will be
witnessed on the streets of St. Louis next
Saturday, the day of the funeral. Hardly
a business house in the city but what will
be more or less draped, and the large busi
ness bouses and all public buildings will
be covered with a wealth of crape and
bear, in many cases, artistically wrought
emblems and devices expressive of some
distinguishing act or trait of the dead
Notice to Grand Army Men.
The following telegram was sent yes

Grand Army, by Gens. Siocum and How
ard: "It is impossible for any representa
tives of the Grand Army, Loyal Legion,
or other organization to accompany the
family on the train, or to join en route.
It is presumed that you will be repre
sented by delegations, or otherwise at the
funeral at St. Louis. The exigencies of
the situation and limited transportation
ha ve rendered this rule imperative."

byterian assembly committee, which has
been in secret session for the last ten
days, has finished its work and aa
journed. The results of its labors will
not be made known until the next meet

Minneapolis, Minn., Feb. 18. Patrons
or pugilistic events from Illinois, Michi
gan, Wisconsin, and Indiana to a total of
over 2ij0 came in on yesterday morning's
trains from Chicago. On the same trains
there were no small number of substantial
looking business men and commercial
travelers whom mysterious and pressing
business had called to the Flour City, said
pressing business being to witness the
fight between Dan Need ham and Tom Ry
an, which took place at the Twin City
Athletic club last night. There were
about lj.TOO spectators present when the
men went into the ring The fight was
w ith four-ounce gloves, and at not more
than 110 pounds, Ryan weighed 139
and Need ham 137,'?.
A Kcview of the I'lclit.
At !t:30 p. m. the men toed the mark and
shook hand-.. From the 1st round to the
7t!i there was nothing done except a very
good exl. ibition of scientific sparring, only
one or two sharp blows being exchanged,
but iu ti e 7th the exchanges were heavier,
Ryan receiving a blow in the face and
Needham one iu the body. Blows were
exchanged after this' round as follows:
Iu favor of Ryan A heavy body blow and
two facers; two heavy blows on Need
ham's ri s; heavy neck blow. In Need
ham's livor Two light txxly blows; a
ringing right hnnder on Ryan's ear;
heavy oni on his face; and this closed the
16th roui d with an hour of fighting and
neither hurt much.
Going Hammer and Tongs.
Little was done then until the 10th,
when they went at each other for blood.
Needham pot blows in the neck and left
eye, and Ryan a fearful facer, being
forced to the ropes. Ryan got a staggerer
in the ear in the 20th and one in the
stomach in the 21st. There were heavy
exchanges in the 24th, mostly in Rvan's
favor. The fighting was hot but light up
to the 31st, w hen they both received tell
ing blows in neck and face, while Need
ham's lip li.'pm to swell. In the 3tih
Needham got a blow on the jaw that was
believed to have broken it, but his seconds
denied it, and both men were vigorous in
the next round.
The First Knockdown.
The flgl ting was lively for the next two
rounds, and Ryan was sent spinning to
the ropes- once. He retaliated in the
37th routd with a blow that knocked
Needham off his feet flat of his back. Both
men were groggy and sparred for wind
for several rounds. It was 12:21 a. in.
when the 43d round began, and Needham
gave Ryati a righthander in the face, fol
lowed by in upier cut. From then to the
57th round, it was the same old thing, and
the crowd yelled for blood, but none was
shed. Bo; h men had badly swelled faces,
but they were seemingly in condition to
go on all niht.
Bclleti N. Hyan won the fight in the
7fith round, after fighting 5 hours and 5
At the end of the 64th round, although
Needham's nose was swelled, also his
shins, and Ryan had a number of lumps
on his face, not a drop of blood had been
spilled. The spectators were raising a
pandemonium, calling on the men to fight,
but they did not begin in earnest nntil
the 74th round, when Ryan gave Needham
a hard facrr. and another on the jaw that
sent him ruling to the ropes. In the 75th
Needham hit a palpable foul, and then
both began fouling. Science and rules
were ignored, and it became a regular
slugging match with the advantage with
edliams 'Friends Give It Ep.
Needham was pluck, however, to the
core. In the 76h round he came up
groggy, but game. Ryan let out right
and left an 1 got home every time, draw
ing the first blood of the fight. Needham
was driven to the ropes, but struggled to
the ceDter of the ring and was knocked
down; got up again, and again went down:
he came up again, to go down once more,
and still gu me was again sent to grass.
This time his seconds took him to his
corner and threw up the sponge. Ryan
was carried out of the ring in triumph.
The fight ended at 2:35 a m., lasting five
hours and five minutes, and Tommy is
welter-weight champion of the world.
The fight was one of the finest exhibitions
of scientifi; pugilism ever given any
where. SOME MORE REGULATION.

Questioning Kyle's Election.
Piukue. S. D., Feb. 18. The question
was raised yesterday as to the legality of
Kyle's election to the United States sen
ate. The claim is made that the constitu
tion provides that a majority of all the
members of the legislature is necessary to
elect. This would necessitate Kyle's re
receiving eighty-five v.otes, whereas the
vote gave Kyle only seventy-five. There
are also rumors that Kyle was voted for
by the Democrats on a "deal" by which
the F. M. B. A. men in the Illinois legis
lature are to vote for Palmer.
