Maher Almost Blind From
Sand and Dust.
CAN IT BE A SUBTERFUGE?
Tho Fight May Come Off Next
El Paso, Feb. 14. The light tins
been ofllclully postponed until Mon
day, on account of Mnhcr's sore eyes.
The opinions of physicians differ,
somo maintaining that he will be out
In three days, and others giving him
at least a week to remain in his loom
Even if Maher Is able to enter the
ring Monday, he will not be ablo to
do himself justice, as he has been
practically out of training for a week.
Maher is greatly worried, 'lest the
public think his sore eyes arc a sub
terfuge to cnablo him to avoid going
Into tho ring. Stuart is ready to
pull off the light at any time the men
Tho spot where the battlo ground Is
to bo Is still a secret. Everybody
thinks It would be In Mexico, off tho
line of the Southern Pacific railroad,
anywhere from 60 to 100 miles cast of
El Paso. Conditions may arise, it is
claimed, that will permit It to como
oil ab Juarez without Interference,
but this not likely.
El Paso, Feb. 14. The big light Is
postponed until Monday, at the earli
est, and when that day arrives tho
future of Peter Maher will be deter
mined. It Is the eyes of Maher that threat
en to stop the event. Buck Connelly,
one of Maher's seconds, said that
Maher'a eyes .were so badly inflamed
by sand LlowJug intnem during his
training, that he could scarcely sec.
Stuart at onco set to work to secure a
postponement of the light to enable
Maher to get Into condition.
According to tho conditions of tho
match Maher and Fltzslmmons each
posted a forfeit of $1000 tolnsuro their
appearance In the ring. Maher came
to this city at 0:30 last night. His eye's
wcro tightly closed and ho wore a
green shado over them. Over the
green shado was a traveling cap with
tho visor pulled down close upon the
nose to prevent tho light from strlk
ldg his eyes.
Newspaper representatives wcro
sent for by Connelly and Maher's eyes
were inspected. They wcro swollen
almost shut and water exuded from
tho corners. Raising of tho lids

Inflamed and raattcratcd. Maher has
been training In the old adobo rink at
Los Cruccs. The dust was 60 thick
when he was going through his exer

it and warned Maher against continu

Sunday one of his eyes began to pain
It was decided that he had sand in
them but it would only temporarily
inconvenience him. Tuesday both
eyes wcro affected and tho condition
of tho fighter became worse, and yes
terday ho could not see. Maher's
trouble Is not uncommon in this
Dr. Yandcll, tho oity health offlccr,
who looked at tho sufferer last night
said that Mnher would not bo able to
enter the ring for a week.
Martin Julian and Fltzslmmons
were sent for as soon as Maher was
placed in tho room. Both examined
tho sufferer's eyes, expressing their
sympathy for him, and announced
that they would not under any
circumstances claim tho forfeit. They
will give Maher ample time to recover.

Glorious Results of th&First Quartx

'Salem bids fair to bedomo the cen

Dr. Smith, of tho Lawlcr mining
syndicate, reached Salem with two
sacks of ore this morning to bo as
sayed. They aro samples from a group of
ten mines that Mr. W. B. Lawlcr will
bond in London inside of thirty days
for twlco what ho did tho Red and
Whlto Bull mines now at work, oro
from which ho will show on this trip
"I have Just been In Cripple Creek

Since the Btnmp mills went to work
excitement has spread and tho Lawlcr

prejudices against mines in tho Salem
district is disappearing, and there Is
no need for Oregon men too g to Col

would make Salem the nearest

Facts of Interest from the Quartzville and
Other Mines of Oregon.
The fact that tho Lawlcr syndicate
has a large quanty of valuables oro in
sight at their mines in Quartzville
district, and about the mlddlo of
tho present month starts up the ma
chinery, hns attracted widespread
attention. Concerning this and other
Oregon mines tho Northwest Mining
Journal of Spokane says: Mr. A.
Strong, of Salem, Oregon, was In the
city. From him wo learned something
additional of tho mining operations
of Western ami Southwestern Oregon.
Mr. Strong was until recently ono of
tho principal owners of tho Red and
Whlto Bull group of mines In tho
Quartzville district, In Linn county,
about sixty miles southeast of Salem,
and which qroduced somo very rich
quartz In tho placer days, somo thirty
years ago. Recently, how'ever, Mr.
W. B. Lawlcr, of Salt Lake, visited
the property repairing to London,
England, and formed a syndlcnto
which purchased tho property, consist
ing of elghtquartzclalmsand botweon
thrco and four hundred acres of placor
ground, making payment principally
In cash and issuing n liberal amount of
stock to Mr. Strong. Tho company
under the clllccnt management of
Mr. Lawlcr, then proceeded to equip
tho mines with machinery of tho latest
and mosto Improved pattern. A 40
stamp mill was purchased, twenty
stamps of which will bo operated Mils
winter and tho balanco added in tho
spring; iG lit Edge concentrating tables
and cyanide nuxllllary constitute tho
balance of tho machinery so far ord
ered. This machinery was purchased
from McFarlano & Co., of Denver. A
lino electric lighting plant Is also ono
of tho Itnpiovcments made. Tho
ledges aro large and tho oro runs from
$15 to $20 in gold to tho ton. Thero
are several good gold districts along
tho west slopo of tho Cascado mount
ains, natnelyt Tho Molalla, Quartz
vlllc, Bluo River and Bohemia. In
tho Molalla district soveral Portland
people aro Interested, and they propose
equipping their mines wlrh a mill In-
tho near fntute. Bohomia hasBcvoral
mills in operation, tho principal prop
erty ."perhaps being the Annie, recently
sold by Mr. McGeo to Chicago parties
at a prlco not known by Mr. Strong nt
the time of his visit.
Bluo River district Is being
thoroughly prospected nud has every
nppcarauce of being n lino district,
with oro similar to tho ores of Bohe
Boston parties aro erecting atmioltcr
lu tho vaclnlty of Grant's Pass to
treat 'the oro from somo extensive
copper initio they have purchased.
Mr. Strong says tho wholo south
western part of Oregon Is n rich placer
field, which yields a haudsomo annual
revenue. Much of tho land claimed
and patented by tho Southern Pacific
Company Is of a mlucr.il character,
but tho laud department puts tho
bunion of proof on tho miner and
many times ho may bo away In the
fastnesses of tho mountains and re
turning after bovoral months finds his
land deeded away from him.
Said Mr Streng: "You have mado
good selections lu Mr. S. R. Hnmmer,
of Salem, and Mr. W. B. Lawler, of
Albany, for vice-presidents of tho
Northwest Mining Association for
their sections. Each Is an ablo and
rcllablo man thoroughly Interested In
seeing tho great mining Industry of
the Northwest promoted and fostered
as It deserves." Ho also stated that a
largo mcml)ershlp would bo enrolled
from Southwestern Oiegon.

ment was made to furnish as many

THE M'KINLEY BOOM
Started In Chicago on Lin
First Appearanco In Anothor State
Since a Private Citizen,
When William McKlnley rose to
speak at the banquet In tho auditor

Chicago, in commemoration of tho
birth of Abraham Lincoln, 1C00 men
cheered tho Ohlonn with the vehem
enco of enthusiastic admiration. Ho
spoke to thotoast"Abraham Lincoln."
Tho occasion wns notablo as tho
first public uppcarauco of Ohio's fam
ous son In another state Blnco his
return from the governorship to tho
position of a private citizen.
Major McKlnley dovotcd himself to
a consideration of current political
questions, as exemplified by tho
speeches and writings of Mr. Lincoln.
"A profound common sense Is tho
best genius for stntcmanshlp, and
thero is no substitute for it. Lincoln
Is certainly the most sagacious and
far-seeing statesman In the annals of
American history. Ills whole llfo
Justifies this estimate of him. It
Is notlcablo that his stand on nil pub
lic questions In his earlier as well an
his later career stamp him as the
wisest exponent of political truths wo
havo over had.
"As far back as March 1, 1813, nt a
whig meeting in Springfield, Mr.
Lincoln offered a series of resolutions
relating to tho tariff, whlchcould well
bo accepted lioro tonight. They were
then unanimously adopted, and Mr.
Lincoln was himself appointed to
proparo an address to tho peoplo of
tho stato upon tho subjects which
they embraced. Let mo road from
this address his profound observations
upon tariff and taxation and their
relation to tho condition of tho

Mr. Lincoln, 'declares a tariff of duties
upon foreign Importations, producing
sufficient revenuo for tho support of
tho general government, and so ad

tho prosperity of tho American people;
and tho second declares direct tax

has been resorted to. By this means
a new national debt has been cientcd,

rapidity fearful to contcmplatoa

met, and the present debt must bo
paid; and money cannot always le

nature, and must soon explode. It Is
