at Oakland to-day, was played from 60 to

Honiton was favorite, and as Dickey had
done nothing in his races the books
chalked up the long prices against him.
The youngster worked well, and there was
a rush to get aboard. The price wa3 cut
rapidly, and very little went on at any
thing over 7 to 1. The good thing and
the favorite had the race to themselves,
and in a drive Dickey won by a neck.
Favorites fared badly, only two winning.
Captain Gaines, whose recent form was
very bad, upset calculations by winning
the last race from the favorite. Cougar,

NEW YORK. March 2S.-On behalf of the
Charleston Athletic Club, J. C. Juadon and
W. McLaughlin, members of the Southern
organization, have made a personal offer
to Fitzsimmons for the bout with Jeffries.
The proposition was 75 per cent, of the gross
receipts, with a guaranteed purse of $26.000.
Fitzsimmons accepted the offer. As evi
dence of good faith the Southern clubmen
have agreed to post a forfeit of $3,000 when
the contract shall have been signed by the
fighters. Juadon and McLaughlin explained
to Fitzsimmons that there is nothing in th
laws of South Carolina to prevent a box
ing contest between heavyweights from be
ing decided. in the State.
"If Jeffries," said the former champion,
"is as anxious for the match as I am he
will not hesitate to accept the Charleston
offer. It is the best and most sincere one
that has been made for the match. Immedi
atelv alter articles of agreement are signed
by Jeffries and myself the Southerns will
post $5.0öu, to be divided between us. Later
they will post the full amount of the guar
anteed purse money."

moters of the bout between Fitzsimmons
and Jeifrits propose to have the contest
take place at the exposition grounds, where
a great arena will be built, plans for which

uncertainty here as to the attitude of the
State authorities in the matter, and it Is
reported that Governor McSweeney will not
permit the contest to take pl.irv. An ef
fort is being made to smooth tho difficul
ties, and there Is hope that it will bu found
possible to pull off the fight.
LOS ANGELES. Cal.. March 2S. The
Century Athletic Club la still In the content
for the Jeffrles-Fitzslmmons fight, and will
make a new offer that will raise the bid of
the Charleston club. Yesterday the pros
pects for bringing the fight here were con
sidered very slim, but the offer from South
Carolina has spurred the local promoters
on to a new effort. The forfeit money
posted in San Francisco has been left there
as a guarantee of good faith and the purse
money is still on deposit at the Citizens'
Bank of this city. Thomas McCarey. presi
dent of the club, said: "The bid from
Charleston does not bother us a bit. We
do not believe they can make good, and
we have good reasons to believe that the
offer is not bona fide."

COTTON RAISING IN AFRICA.
Report of Yonnc Negroes from
Hooker T. Washington's School.
ATLANTA, Ga., March 2$. The German
Colonial Economic Society of Berlin has Is
sued an elaborate report of the work of
the experimental cotton plantation in Togo,
West Africa, managed by J. N. Callo
way and three young negroes from Booker
T. Washington's school at Tuskegee, Ala.
The following is an abstract from Super
intendent Calloway's statement to the so
ciety, which is included in the report: "I
believe that by planting the seed in late
summer, thus avoiding the heavy rains,
good results can be obtained with Amer
ican cotton. It is probable, too, that bet
ter results can be obtained by using cot
Ion seed or artificial fertilizers. I am of
opinion that by crossing native with Amer
ican cotton a variety adapted to the col
ony can be secured. One hundred acres of
land In all were cultivated. Up to the
close of December twenty-three bales of
cotton were ready to ship. Thirteen of
these were from native seed, nine from
American seed and one from Egyptian seed.
The natives grow cotton as a secondary
product with yams. There is sufficient good
"The natives must be taught to cultivate
more cotton on the same ground with the
same labor. If possible they must be fur
nished with draught animals. Portable en
gines should be furnished, power for gin
ning and baling, and a railroad should be
built from the coast Inland. Our experi
ence has given us every reason to believe
that in a few years it will be possible to
export many thousand bales oT cotton from
the colony of Tego. This will not have any
effect on the markets of the world, but it
will be of advantage to Germany, and espe
cially to the two and a half millions of na
tives In the colony. Under present condi
tions the cost of. a .TW-pound bale of cotton
delivered at Bremen, including ginning,
pressing and moving to the coast by native
labor, shipping expenses, sundries, insur
ance, etc.. is marks (about SV.)
'If crossing native with American seed
makes it possible tg gtt a bale from 1,"J00
pounds of seed cotton, and if the introduc
tion of steam power for jxlnning. baling and
hauling lowers the cost to equivalent ex
penses in America, it should be possible to
produce a bale of cotton of the same qual
ity to be laid down in Bremen for 1W marks

"What will the Sunday newspapers get
up next?" asked one of a party of married
men. all of whom had had their tooth
brushes- ruined by their children dipring
them into the Sunday newspaper paint
pots. "When they fix things so that you
only just have to wet the paper and get
a pot of paint, it's getting along pretty
"Oh. that amounts to nothing." was the
reply from the sad-faced man with the red
nose. "I have an idea for a Sunday paper
and the paper that adopts it first will
have the largest circulation of any news
paper in New York. They should get out
what I would call a 'beer supplement. ' and
have lt fixed so that all you would have to
do would be to tear off a coupon, throw
it into a glass of water and have it turn
at once into a glass of beer. With every
thing closed up tight on Sundays we mut
have something of the kind. I'd take such
a paper regularly, even If lt didn't throw
in a jumping-jack and a rag-time song."
Right and Wrong: Wnys of Seeking: to
Mold Public Opinion.
Yellow journalism has a fashion of re
joicing In the adjective that has been ap
plied to lt with unfavorable Intent, and of
pointing out that to be "yellow" means to
be exceptionally enterprising, the friend
of the oppresred, the foe of the oppressor,
and to be everything that is superlatively
virtuous and righteously strenuous in the
making of newspapers. One of the cardinal
tenets of the school is to make news as
well as to print it, and the expression that
Justice Jerome used in regard to the entire
press of New York city ns representative
of newspaper ideals "government by news
papers" Is undoubtedly within the scope of
the ambitions of the yellow cult.
On some occasions the effort to make
news is not without its beneficial results.
Undoubtedly the progressive newspaper has
the same right to participate actively '.n
movements that its directing agencies be
lieve to be for the public good that any cor
poration or a private citizen has. The good
or bad that may grow out of such en
deavors is, of course, dependent upon the
accuracy of the judgment of those who
supplement the traditional means of exer
cising the power of the press with acts that
accord with their opinions.
There Is, however, an alleged right to
wield the power of the press assumed by
the exponents of yellow journalism that ex
ceeds the rights of private citizens or cor
porate enterprises, and it is one that should
be frowned upon, proceeding from a news
paper publication, as it would be when it
proceeds from other quarters. That alleged
right is the attempt to infiuence and to
sway the course of justice by hysterical ap
peal to public opinion on unsworn testi
mony and through a usurpation of the
functions of judicial prerogative.
Very frequently the batteries of prejudice
are directed against some Individual ac
cused of crime, and thus public opinion
is poisoned and it becomes dilllGiilt to se
cure a prompt and unbiased verdict from
the constituted authority "for determining
the guilt or Innocence of accused perrons.
Again, the same pernicious effort is made
to sway the public sympathies In behalf of
those accused, and the course of justice Is
blocked by contemptuous disregard of the
regular and orderly fashion of going about
the ascertainment of the truth.
A notable Instance of the latter variety
of attmepted "government by newspapers."
of assault upon institutions which are the
safeguards of the peace, property, lives
and liberties of citizens, is now displayed
in connection with the Florence Burns case
in New York city. A newspaper which
points with pride to qualities : which it
deems to be comprehended by the word
"yellow" marshals opinions of the guilt
or Innocence of the girl accused of the
murder of Walter Brooks, and gives space
to artful pleas that seek to touch the sym
pathies of those easily influenced, plainly
and boldly contending that if the prisoner
did commit the crime charged to her she
should, nevertheless, not be held account
able. The logical sequence of this meddlesome
manufacture of public sentiment in con
nection with criminal cases would be the
abolition of tho courts, the saving of at
tendant expenses and the relegation of all
criminal jurisdiction to the crime depart
ment of the "yellows.'" The innocent as
well as the guilty would be Inclined to
shudder at the prospect, and those whose
Interests are now represented by the State
would undoubtedly have cause for alarm.
Nevertheless, the bestowal of full powers of
judicial authority upon newspapers would
only differ In degree from the partial and
partially effective assumption of those pow
ers which is now tolerated.
Little black mirrors in which one seeks
to read the future are becoming quite pop
ular among the growing army of crystal
gazers. The cult if It can be termed such re
ceived a great impetus from Mr. Audrew
Lang's recent article on crystal-gazing, in
which he allowed that there was a case
for investigation, at any rate, into the
mysterious power which some people appar
ently possess of "visualizing" another per
son's mental processes, and, in some In
stances, actual bodily movements, when
not in sight or hearing.
The introduction of the black mirror is
but a variant on the crystal method, and
an officer of the Society for Psychical Re
search states that there is nothing surpris
ing in the idea.
"It is just as easy," he says, "for any
one who possesses the faculty to obtain re
sults from a mirror as from a crystal. .
"Indeed, I recently personally investi
gated a case where a servant girl in Kent
frequently astonished her mistress by
'visualizing' with remarkable fidelity her
absent master, whom she had never seen,
by gazing on the mirrored surface of the
dining room sideboard.
"The master of the house Is away in
South Africa, acting as intelligence otflcer,
and though the servant did not know this,
had never seen a photograph of him, and
had never heard him described, she por
trayed with extraordinary minuteness his
mannerisms and appearance, and even, in
rough fashion, pictured the surroundings
of an intelligence officer's Ufa.
"Notes were taken of the incident, and
corroboration or otherwise from the. officer
of his movements and actions at the stated
hour are awaited with much interest."
Mirror-gazing, of course, is as old as the
hills, and has been known in all ages and
climes. Mr. Iing points out that many
savage and barbarous races gaze Into
water, polished basalt and rock crystals.
Mr. Lang also mentions the case of a lady
who saw In a glass water jug an Eoce
Homo painting of the familiar type, she
said: "I used to see things like this in ink
when I was a child."
THE SINGING VOICE.
The nest Hillen for Keeping It In flood
The greatest choir in the world is said
(and we believe with truth) to be that at
tached to a monastery at St. Petersburg,
erected In honor of Alexander Nevskl. pa
tron saint of Russia. It consists of about
thirty monks, chosen from the best voices
In all the Russian monasteries. It is really
worth a journey to St. Petersburg to hear
that choir sing. A contemporary speaking
of them announces that thf-y believe that
the eating of carrots has much to do with
sustaining the strength and sweetness of
their voices. Groat singers are often great
cranks. A list filling a column might be
made of the things which they have cred
ited with having a tine effect upon thrir
voices; and the list would be very contra
dictory, some warning others againt what
their equals have commended. If it be tni
that carrots tend to make such singers as
these or to improve voices, thf re are many
reasons why the fact should be made
known In this country, where from the
climate or othpr causes voices are under
going an unfavorable modification. Really
tine bassos are r'.ltneult to find, and a prrat
musical authority affirms that tenors are
growing scarce. If this continues pr dom
inant voices will be of the class whlh a
poor Ignorant women whose husband wns a
good singer but very Ill-tempered, tried to
describe. Peing asked whether his voice
was tenor or bass, she answered: "He
says it is barytone, but at home it is be.ir-i-tone."

realizes the value of her opportunities, and
works hard harder than the average youn

The true vegetarian uses no salt, and.
this fact alone would give one an aversion
to that kind of cooking. It is claimed that
all minerals, especially salt, which Is a
metallic compound, are detrimental, and
cannot be assimilated by the living organ
ism. Vegetarians hold that it is to our best
economy to eat only those foods that con
duce to building up and strengthening, and
that building-up properties exist only in
vegetable foods. Our liking for salt, we are
told, is a perverted taste, and when w
become accustomed to unsalted food 0
enjoy the special, delightful flavor that
nature has given to each vegetable, nut
or cereal. Hut all vegetarians are not true
vegetarians, and so one finds in the recipe
