the Cuarts O'Malley's Statement.
Chicago, Sept. 5. Seven hundred troops
fully armed, with 27,000 pounds of ammu
nition, to stop a prize fight. This was the
ituation at Roby, Ind., at the hour at
which the pugilistic entertainment prom
ised the sports of Chicago and elsewhere
was to have Iwgim. During the day Judge
Gillette, of tlit- Ijike county (Ind.) circuit
court, had grunted to the Mate, represent
ed by Judge K'llii tt, a writ tf quo war
rinto to annul the charter of the Colum
bian Athletic cluli and appointed a re
ceiver, on the ground thai the club wks
violating the hiw by conducting an illegal
businc.-. Deputy Sheriff Hayes wi.s
m;ide receiver and took poe-t.ion of the
ourt Pi iiccfiliiig. linrried.
The judgment has the appearance of a
Snap" judgment. The club's attorneys
were on hand at tlie opening of court to
aerve notice that in case action Kgain-t
their client whs contemplated the latter
desired to 1 heard, but the lawyers were
greatly surprised to learn that without
going through the strict forms of open
court Jud'e Gillette had already done the
business, and that the attorneys would
have no chance to he heard. Sheriff Fried
ricks is bii,tv at the governor for sending
troops without any call for them by the
sheriff, anil as soon as the deputy was in
charge left for this city.
l-cUrrl the right Off.
The news was very disgusting to Presi
dent O'Mallev of t he Columbian club, as
well as to the thousands of ,nen of all
stations .n life who had paid from iS U10
for tickets. They .however, will lose noth
ing, as the money will be refunded. A
few moments Itefore the advertised time
of departure of J-ake Shore special trains
for Koi y the manacement of the Colum
bian cub announced t hat they wou'd not
run, and the contests between Jimmy
Barry and Johnny Connors anil George Im
Vigne and 'Young' Griffo would not take
place as scheduied. The writ is made re
turnable on Friday, and then a hot legal
fight between the tlub and the state will
begin, the outcome of which will settle the
standing of '.he club. President U'Malley
stiil claims to be conf deut tuat the club
will win out.
LB" What President O'Mailey Say.
O'Mailey, in an interview, said that tho
f'.ub was anxious to have the legality of
the exhibitions at lioby tested in court,
and for that reason four of the members
had surrendered themselves at the time of
the Woods Costello fight. The hearing
was to come off Wednesday next. He
continued. "If Governor Matthews and
Lis attorney general wiil give us a chauce
to get before the court we wiil show that
tfe Lave a right under the statute and our
charter to give sparring exhibitions or we
will close up the arena. We are cot law
breakers, and if any court pronounces
against us we will close our doors until
the case has been carried to the last court
of appeals. Governor Matthews may be
all right in his ideas, but according to our
lawyers, and we have consulted the best
in Indiana and Illinois, we are acting
within tlie limits of the law."
, TROOPS AROUND THE ARENA. '
The Club House as iiuik as a Cemetery
and llayonet All Aronnil.
The situation at Roby is this: The 7u0
tr Mips of Indiana's Nat ional guard, forti
fle 1 with swords, bay net-, rifles and Gat
ling guns and U7,U0 pounds of nmmuni
ti u are bivouacked outside ti.e arena of
th.' Columbian Athletic club. The fight
w is called off before the military demon
stration was made at the club house. Ben
jamin Hayes, of Crown Point, Ind., who
was appointed receiver, served an order on
diaries Friedricks, sheriff ot Lake coun
ty, that he should allow no more prize
fights at the club house. The sheriff went
to the club house at 6 o'clock p. m. and
give notice to the men in charge, leaving
a dozen deputies to see that the order was
respected. Dominick O'Mailey, president
o ' the club, and the meu who intended to
fi jht threw up the sponge after 4 o'clock
Xo special trains were run from Chi
cigo. Exiept for the militia the Ruby
sporting resort was as dnll and fully as
dark as a cemetery. Bess than a hundred
ports went out on tlie electric road half
doubling and half hoping that there would
be a fight, or at least some fun with the
oldiers. "Kid" Lavig,ie was the only
fighter who remained at the club house all
night.Xo such military demonstration to
prevent a prize lifcht has ever been seen in
this part of the country and it awed the
btnall crowd of spectators. The uiilitia
m u readied the scene at 0 o'clock p. m.,
b. special trains on the Lake Shore and
F irt Wayne roads, both of which run
c ose to the club house. All was dark and
till, but the commanding officers sus
pected a ruee to deceive them.
Picket lines were thrown out and a com
p my of boys in blue detailed for sentry
d ity around the big enclosed arena. The
y mug "citizen soldiers expected to see
some resisting force, and their surprise
was tempered with a feeling of satisfaction
that they would not be ordered to fir
upon fellow citizens. Some officers went
into the arena and found a small party of
meu taking care of the place, but no sign
of a light. Other officers found their way
to the club house adjoining, where liquid
refreshments were not secured. Only
twenty-four hours rations were brought
on each train and no camp equipments, so
that the officers aud men shared alike. A
plunk sidewalk with a blanket covering
erved as the couch for those not on duty,
but no one grumbled. '
The stopping of the fight will cost the
tate of Indiana some money as well as
the athletic club. When the sheriff saw
the soldiers disembarking he quickly ab
dicated in their favor and went to Chi
cago, leaving a dozen deputies to represent
him. Adjul ant General Robins assumed
command of the grounds. With him are
Quartermaster General Conipton; Lieu
tenant Colonel Carey, assistant surgeon
general; Lieutenant (3. A. Girard, Battery
A, acting as assistant adjutant general;
Alajor Harry Smith, of the Second regi
ment, commanding detachment of the

EMIN PASHA UNDOUB-EDLY DEAD,
And Hi Uody l.nten (.'nmiilial Natives
LnMo Sept. 5. The R .v. Mr. Swann,
a missionary who has just returned from
Cjiji, on the east shore of Lake Tan
ganyika, says that it is impossible to
doubt honestly that Emin Pasha is dead.
"The most circumstantial reports reached
rue from four independent sources," said
M -. Swann, "and all agreed as to the de
tails. The Arabs every wiiere in Africa
are rejoicing oyer his death." According
to the reports received ly Mr. Swann
Emin had arrived at the residence of S 'yd
Bin Abed in the country if the Manye
ma9 in the eastern part bf the Congo
state. A party of Arabs approached and
asked Emin: "Where are ; ou goiiii;!-"
"To the coast," was Kudu's reply. The
leader of the Arabs, who as armed with
a scimetar, then stepped Uf to Emin and
said: "Y'ou are Kmln Pasha, who killed
the Arabs at Victoria Xyat za." Without
waiting for an answer he st nick off Emin's
head with the scimetar. Eaiin's body was
thrown to the Manyemas, who ate it.
Subsequently the Manye nas murdered
Emin's Xubian followers and ate them.
Swann says that these deta Is have been so
often repeated that iu Ujiji uoliody has the
slightest doubt as to their Morrectness.

Washington, Sept. 5. It is re

decided to send another special mes

net to meet today to dscuss the proposed
message so it is said The president will
ask congress to authorize the coinage of
Bilver bullion in the treasury. This
seigniorage amounts to &3,0U0,OOu, and is
the profit that the government has made
on the the purchase ot the silver. The
coinage of this would be sufficient to make
up the deficit that now threatens the
treasury. This will also have the effect of
satisfying the silver Democrats that the
administration is not the ene-vy of silver
that it is painted. It is also said that
Cleveland has conferred with Crisp, who
is in full accord with the executive on the
The State lt.-uik Question.
Regarding the burning question of state
banks, it is predicted that as soon as ti.e
repeal of the Sherman bill has been ef
fected (should that ever be) the proposi
tion to repeal the tax on state banks will
come to the front at once, and when it
does it is probable a discussion will be
begun looking to a thorough revision of
the financial legislation of the country.
The idea of basing the circulating notes of
state banks upon state or municipal bonds
does uot find favor in the senate for the
reason that such security is not looked
iiIHin as substantial etiouith to withstaud
the assaults of the stock market.
Voorhees Insirts That He Was Right.
Senator Gray says that the bonds will
be paid in the near future and that some
thing will have to take the place of na
tional bauks, while other senators would
ra; her issue other bonds for a basis for
circulation. Voorhees is an outspoken ad
vocate of state bauks. What he means by
"state banks" is not the banks so com
mouly remembered and associated with
ideas repugnant to good banking princi
ples, but tlie chartered state bauks which
had a circulation based upon specie itself
gold and silver. Senator Voorhees Bays
that when he made the statement in his
sjieecb a few days gj that no man had
ever lost adollarthroughachartered bank
he uttered a trutu that had not to this day
been denied and could never be. That is
the sort of bank he con'ends for.
A Gold and Silver Ilasis.
He wants the basis for the currency to
be the precioin metals. This means that
there should lie at all times in the vaults
of the banks one-thir l the amount of its
notes in gold and silver, an amount al
most sutlicient, from his point of view, too
redeem all notes of the bank that might at
any time be offered for redemption, and
upon which to transact the business of
the community iu which the bank Is
located, liisplan also contemplates gov
ernmental supervision aud inspection, a
combination which wiil, he believes, offer
a solution to t e problems now before the
