Aa Exciting Sparring Hatch in Dav
enport Last Xitht.
Last evening between 6 and 7 o'cloc k
occurred a sanguinary encounter betwet n
Peter Lamp and John McGinness, at the
latter's place of business on Brady street
between Front and Second, Davenpon.
According to Mr. McGinness' story Lan p
went into his place early in tbe afteroocn
and was somewhat under the influence of
liquor at tbe time. By 6 o'clock he be
came quarrelsome and did all in his power
to provoke John into an attack. He
called him a coward and told him thit
any 10 year-old boy could whip him. Ee
then taunted him with some unpleasant
o:currence of last year. Finally he told
McGinness that he could lick him. John
says he passed it off as a joke, not car
ing to have any trouble with him. After
a while John came from behind tbe bar
hid Lamp struck him ia tie
face. This was the signal for
battle and soon both were engaged in
a bitter fist fight. McGinness knocked
Lamp down and when he got up, knocked
him down again. Lamp claims that Mc
Ginness had on a pair of brass nucks"
but this McGinness denies. Be this ts
it may, Lamp's face is all smashed out f
shape, says the Tribune. His nose is
broken acrosB the bridge, one eye is
nearly but snd bis whole face looks hs
though it bad been run through a thresh
ing machine or sausage grinder. Lamp
swore out a warrant for McGinness' ar
rest aad he was confined in jail His ba 1
was fixed at $500. which, after a time,
was furnished. The floor and chairs neer
tbe door in MrGinness' place have blood
spattered all over them and show plainly
that tbe fight must have been a desperate
one. Limp's wounds were dressed anl
his nose bandaged up as well as possible.
McGinness does not show any effects of
the strife, but Lamp will carry the marks
with him for a long time to come.

Gavett, of this city, Wednesday received

Augusta, Me., in response to a letter writ
ten by him on the lSth inst. The subjects
of inquiry on the part of Mr. Gavett were
the health of Secretary James Q. Blaine
and his attitude affecting tbe earnest de
sire of the multitude of his admirers in the
Republican party that he become its
standard bearer in tSM. The replies are
especially significant when it is remem
bered that Mr. Manley has for years
been a warm personal friend and
the political confidant and adviser of tbe
distinguished secretary of state. In ef
fect Mr. Manley asserts that Mr. Blaine's
health is almost fully regained, and that
he will return to Washington in the fall
with all his vigor and strength of Doth
mind and body. He further states that
Mr. Blaine cannot become a candidate for
tbe Republican nomination, but that in
his opinion, if the Republican party wants
him for standard bearer in all it has
to do is to nominate him, and that he will

publican committee, arrived in Boston
yesterday. When interrogated concern
ing the predicted resignation of Chairman
Quay, Dudley said he did not think it

would be the Republican standard-bearer

would be the Democratic candidate He

will be a gathering of those interested in
the organization of the People's party in
this state soon. All opponents of the old
parties are invited. Uncle Solon says he
thinks the Greenback party is born again;
that the free coinage of silver would be a

Farmers' Alliance is on the right track.
The Colonel Is Not Very Definite.
Washington, July 24. President Polk,
of the Farmers' Alliance,has just returned
from his southern tour. Mr. Polk said:
"The issue is not the tariff, tbe free coin
age of silver nor the &ub-teasury bill.
The issua is the reform of our entire finan
cial system. Neither the issuance of more
money nor the collection of less taxes will
alone do the people any good. The entire
financial system of the government must
be changed before anything else that may
be done can correct the existing evils."

AN INTERESTING LEGAL OPINION.
Scheme to Maintain Prices Outlawed by
a Chicago J mice.
Chicago, July 24. R. Wilson More and
J. L. Bennett were -members of the organ
ization known as the Chicago Law Stenog
raphers' association, which had adopted a
schedule of rates said to be' reasonable by
judges and lawyer. The members bound
themselves to the rates as fried by the as
eoaiatioq, and in no case would one mem
ber attempt to underbid the price of an
other. Under this arrangement More en
tered into contract with the county of
Cook to report the Cronin murder trial at
the rate of 10 a day for attendance and
the regular rates for transcripts as estab
lished by the association.
It is said that Bennett knew of the agree
ment. yet offered to do the work for 3 a
day and charge less for transcripts. In
this way More was compelled to do the job
at Bennett's figures, and after the trial he
sued Bennett for J3,000, the difference be
tween the contract prices whiclAe says he
lost owing to Bennett's violation of the
association agreement. In deciding for
the defendant Judge Waterman, of the
appellate court, says: "We are of the opin
ion that the agreement set up in the
declaration was contrary to public policy,
and therefore void. Parties who make
such promises must depend upon the dis
position of the promisors to keep the
same. The law will not enforce such un
dertakings." "STONEWALL" JACKSON'S STATUE.
Why It Was Not Located In the Military
Richmond, Va., July 24. The fact that
Stonewall Jackson's statue, unveiled in
Lexington Tuesday, was not placed in
the grounds of the Virginia Military in
stitute, where he was a professor at the out
break of tbe war, has occasioned, some
comment. The selection of the site, it is
stated by A gentleman of high standing
who was in Lexington Tuesday, wast He
cause of a lively contest between the Epis
copalians and Presbyterians of that town.
Just before he died Jackson expressed the
wish that his remains should rest in Pres
byterian grounds. As his ashes were to
be placed in the monument the people of
his faith opposed the selection of the
grounds of the institute, that being under
Presbyterians Gained Their Point.
The latter denomination earnestly ad
vocated this as the most favored location.
The Presbyterians succeeded in their op
position and the monument stand in the
ground which was established by the
Scotch Presbyteaians who settled the
county of Rock Bridge and founded the
town of Lexington. If any feeling was
engendered by this denominational rival
ry it all disappeared before Tuesday, as
Episcopalians vied with Presbyterians in
doing honor to tlie Confederate soldier.

Had Compassion for the Sufferer.
Mr. Corbin replied to the wrirerthat
the Staten Island Ferry company owned
the landing at Bay Ridge, and the green
painted benches of which he complained
were theirs, and that he had absolutely
nothing to do with the ferry, but out of
compassion for his correspondent's woe he
offered, if the clothes were sent to his
oltice, to have an attempt made to clean
them with benzine, failing in which he
agreed to put a patch on them. At last
account he bad not received the trousers.
