STOP THESE FIGHTS, Prize Fighting in Tcpeka Has Gone Far Enough. HOW I1KE ARRESTS BIGHT AWAY. Xclther Coetj Attorney Stafford 5ior Chief IJadiey Are Doing; Their Iut. At the end of the street car line at Lowman Hill last night, there was a prize fight between Mike West and Harry Hoff master for a purse of thirty dollars and West won it in five founds. It was the same West that whipped young Barabini near Washburn college on Sunday in two rounds. The eporta had a hard time to find a place to have the fight unmolested last evening. It was first announced among the elect that the tight would take place at Oakland park. At the last moment it was changed to th fair grounds, but Chief Lindsey and seme officers in a hack appeared on the scene and the crowd dodged them and went to L owman Hill, where they were successful in get ting a five round entertainment It is said the fighters used six-ounce gloves. The light took place in a vacant lot and was witnessed by about one hun dred and fifty men and boys. There were several knock downs, and in the fifth round West suddenly swung his right under Hoffinaster'a heart, and the latter dropped like a lo?. He was up in nine seconds, but fell again without be ing hit, and failed to respond to the tenth second. The combatants were less than twenty yeara of ace. County Attorney Safford and Chief of Police Lindsey are certainlv neglecting their duty if they do not arrest and pun ish these violators of the law. This dis graceful business haa gone far enough and should be stopped. If the officers of the law aro not goinir to do their duty in the matter of prize tights, wo want to know it quick. There haa been altogether too much dodging of responsibility lately, and loud complaints are coming from all the best classes of the city. If Chief Lind sey doesn't propose to make arrests, that is no reason why County Attorney Saf ford shouldn't proceed against these par ties at once. The inaction of the public officers in these matters is an outrage on decency, and that ia the mildest term that can be used. , KAFFIRS WILL ATTACK. Several Thousand Threaten the Town of Lorenzo, Which I JPoorly Protected. Lorenzo Marquez, Delagoa Bay, epti 25. Several thousand Kaliirs are threat ening to attack thia town. The govern ment haa distributed arms among the white population for defense. Serioua trouble ia expected. Lorenzo Marquez ia a small Portuguese town of Africa, on the north side of Delagoa bay.

Bast Africa which ex tends along the coast from the mouth of the Zambesi to Delagoa bay and is bound ed in by Mashonaland, Matabela and Transvaal.

With this object in view the boera recently sent a sum of $250,000 in London in order to purchase the bonds which Portugal is expected to issue as soon as the Berne arbitrators have decided the question of boundaries. A few days ago, on beptamber lo, ad vices from Pretoria said that the Trans vaal government had acquired the prior rights in Delagoa bay, including control of the port duties, thus giving the Trans vaal a commanding position and free ac cess to theae.

Hudson On the Election. Mrs. Mary E. Lease, who ia speaking at a Populist rally at Bonner Springs to day, waa in Kansas City last evening, and in ah interview told of a bet she made with Major J. K, Hudaon of the Capital. She said: "The Populists will carry Kansas by about 30,000. Do you know, it waa a discussion upon this very subject that led me to make my first bet? Joe Hudson of the Topeka Capital and my self were talking one day and I said the Populists would win. Hudaon differed. He had confidence in the Republicans, and offered to bet a $50 dress against a $ 50 suit of clothes that the Republicans would win. I did not want to bet. and said I waa afraid. He laughed at me. I said I waa not afraid I would lose but that I had never mada a bet, and waa a little timid. I finally took it however, and the bet ia duly recorded. The fall elections shall decide who shall wear the new clothes. He haa one advantage, though. Fiftv dollars will buy a splen did suit of clothes, but not an extra fine dreas." The reporter reminded her that she rode home from Pullman, where she re cently went on a tour of investigation, in a Pullman car, to which she said: "Yes, I usually ride in a Pullman if I have very far to go, aa it is more comfortable, but unfortunately I have no Pullman pasa. If I had one I should undoubtedly use it. That ia if I had one. I don't believe that any person pretending to be an advocate of reform should accept a Pullman pasa and thua place himself under obligations to that company. A pasa always places the holder under some sort of obligations to the giver. The papera have said that the governor and some state officers of Kansas have Pullman passes. I never saw it denied and suppose for that rea son that it is true. Any pretended re former who accepts such favors betrays his people when he accepts them. I wish I could den.ouuce such conduct so loud that I could be heard from one end of this country to the other." The speaker raised her voice as though almost tempted to make an attempt and added: "I want you to say if you. say anything, that I have no Pullman pass. At Puliman I denounced in the strongest possible terms Carroll D. Wright, the labor commissioner, who was there with a Pulltnan pasa in hia pocket. I held him up to the workingmen as an example of perlidy, which the workingmen ap preciated. As a friend of workingmen, I don't believe in placing myself under obligationa to the worst enemiea of work ingmen."" THE JEFF DAVIS LIBEL. The Alleged Slanderer of His Pastor, Kev. O. 1. Olden, on Trial Today. The only case on trial in the district court today is that of Jefferson Davis the colored "silver tongued orator" who is charged with having criminally libeled Rev. G. D. Olden, pastor of the colored Baptist church. He charged that Mr. Olden embezzeled f unda at his former charge in Chattanooga, Tenn. Whether the storiea are true or not Jeff talked about the affair a great deal, lie went so far aa to have a circular printed and circulated about town in which the scandal was told in full. : Rev. Mr. Olden'a side of the case Is that he doesn't object to the right kiud of an investigation but he doesn't want to be "investigated" by the leader of the discontented element in hia church. Eider Barker of the North Topeka col ored Baptist church was put on the wit ness stand and questioned regarding the rule of the denomination when doubts of the pastor's integrity arose in the church. The elder replied that the in vestigation devolved upon a church council, and that Davis had taken the wrong mode of having the pastor's record brought to light. Davis is defended by J. G. Waters, L. S. Ferry and T. F. Doran. JAPANESE POLITICS. There May be an End of Factions in Japan Soon. Washington, Sept. 25. The assem bling of the new Japanese parliament on October 15, may be the occasion accord ing to advices received in diplomatic cir cles here, of a political union or recon ciliation between factions which have been hitherto irreconciliable. When the last Japanese parliament dissolved, the leaders of the different parties were at swords points, but in the presence of war with a power of China's magnitude involving the supremacy of the orient, the old personal feuds have been set aside and efforts are being made to have all factions represented through their leaders in the new Japan ese cabinet.

Come one, come alL 'V- ; FRANK JA3IES IN ST. LOUIS. He Has Left the It ace Track for the Theater IJusiness. St. Lotjis, Sept, 25. A modestly dressed man. wearing a dark brown over coat over a business looking suit of gray cashmere, a pleated bosom white shirt, a polkadotted scarf with a diamond scarf pin, took hia place at the door of the Standard theater last night. He was none other than Frank James, the once noted desperado, train robber and high wayman. He was tendered the position a few days ago and accepted it. "Yes," said he, "I have abandoned the race course forever; there is no money in it It haa ceased to be profitable. Then there ia another reason why I have given it up. 1 have a son wlio is now 11 years of age, and it is natural to suppose that if I had continued in the business he would have drifted into it also. "I do not say that the business is dis graceful; oh no, not that; for I have met huuireda of gentlemen on the track. Some of my best frienda are there. But of course, there are bad ones to be found on a race course, and somehow or other you cannot tell why exactly, but these are the kind a youug man generally falls in with. "I have, therefore, forsaken a follow ing that haa afforded me much amuse ment and entertainment for his sake. "In the future I will be in the theatri cal line, not on the stage but in the busi ness office or at the door or somewhere near about where money is taken in. I have commenced at the bottom round and expect to work my way gradually up. There ia money in the business when you work It right" "So you will never go on the stage?" "Never. I have 110 merit in that line and no sort of practice would make me an actor. I have had plenty of oppor tunities to go before the footlights. Im mediately after 1113- acquittal and vindi cation. I was offered sfoa.OOO a year by a New York company but I declined it. "In tlie future my home will be in St. Loui3. I am tired of roaming around. I shall try to find my son a place in a com mercial house and we will live together. To make a quiet, steady, sober man of him, is now my highest ambition." m ROYS FOR DENVER. They Beat Their Way and Eat Cold Pota toes When They Can. The police thia morning fed three young, clean and intelligent looking boys, who had applied for a favor of just that kind. Two of the boys, Jim and Joe Davis, aged respectively 17 and 15, are from Denver, and John Howe lives at Minneapolis, Minn. He ia seventeen yeara old. They met in Chicago thia summer where they had been loafing about the streets and doing what little work they could get to do. They are now on their way to Denver for the -winter. There is a board against the wall for just such people tc eat from, but there are no chairs and the boys knelt on the floor and ate their cold steak, and pota toes, and biscuits, and pie and hot coffee from a big tin plate, using their fingers for the preparation. "How are you going to Denver without any money?" asked the reporter, by way of opening the conversation. "Humph," said one of the boys, "you must be green. Beat our way, of course.'' "How do you ride?" "On the trucks anywhere. Get fired off sometimes, but that don't count. Course we get separated sometimes, but we always have a plnce to meet.'' The boys will get a train out thia after noon or tonight, headed west. Gen. "V. W. Outfield Appointed. Washington, Sept. 25.- The president today appointed Gen. Win.
