Ths McAallff-Eel;lrr Boat Kot All the Champion's Way llrnki Bli Wrist Conet Islasd, N'ov. 20. The fact that Jack MeAuliffe was to appear last nijht, this time after a careful preparation, ag-ainst a representative of Philadelphia, attracted a crowd of 5,500 people to the Atlantic Athletio club's arena here. Inspector McKel vey and Captain Ciayton, with forty of the Brooklyn police, were on hand at 9 o'clock to prevent a recurrence of "knockouts." Tu hirst bout was between Jerry Barnett of New York and Billy Mur phy of Australia. It was dclared a draw. Tha next bout was between Paddy McBride and Johnny Gorman of Long Isiand City. In the fifth round the pace proved too hot for the (C'daker lad, and after they had fougdit for one minute and forty-five hconds, tha bout was stopped on accotnt of police interference. The referee g-av.- his i eciaion in favor of Goaman. Neit came the McAulitfe-Zeig-ir bout. First round Zeiler at once pro ceeded to mix matters, and the Phiia delphiiiu's stock went up a great many points. Honors were easy at the. cloae of the round. Second round McAulifEe led with his ieft and the CJujker cl.nciied. Mc Auliil'e swung- wide and jot a left hand swing1 from Zeijler in return. McAuIiii'e led with his right and landed, countered by Zeigder. Zeiyrler led with his ri-ht, but fell short. Kap'd exchanges followed. Zeifrler landed with the rijht and followed it with a body blow. MoAuiiffe tiien laiided a sting-er on the face and the round ended in a clinch. Something seemed to go wrong- with McAulilfe's kan I iu this round. Third round The men opened up fiercelj', and, while McAulitfe punch ed his man f reque n tly, Zeigder con tinued to mix matters and honors were even, if anything-, the Phila delphian had a shade the best of it. Fig-iitir.ir became so fierce that the police interfered and stopped further proceeding's. The referee declared the tig-ht a draw. After the contestants left the ring it was discovered that McAuliffa had broken two small bones in his left wrist. This, it was clai sed, was done in the second round, and it was probably when McAuliffe landed a heavy blow on the Philadelphian's shoulder. CA31E110. SO l IN IT. The Pennsylvania Senator Will ot Head an Independent liver Party. Washington, Nov. 20. The renewed reports that Senator Cameron has piven his consent tofbe the presidential Candidate of a ' protection and free silver" party meets with an emphatic denial from close and intimate friends of the senator here who are in a pos.tion to speak with authority. Tne senator has received a number of letters fro.u enthusiastic silver men. who assure h.m tiiat thuy are "w.th you for 1S9J." These letters have re ceived the same formal acknowled ;e me.it g-iven an letters received by tha senator. Further than t hat. however, there has been no correspondence which contemplated the use of the senator's name at the head of an independent sdivtr movement. Mr. Cameron sa.d receatly that while lie was for s.lver he was none the less a Republican, and it was as a Republi can that he hoped, to see the white metal su tably recognized. Th s statement has been widely circulated an : Mr. Cameron's friends say it em bodies his exact position. They r pud. ate the idea that he is conspir ing w.th Senators Stewart, Jones and others to demand a silver p.aak in the Kepublican platform or that he will lead a delect. on from that party. Tiie senator is in New York to-day. lie is expected back later, but the views herein expressed r -fleet those of the senator himself, as they come from those hav ng- confidential ref lations with him.

One Sister Escapes by Jumping from a Window. Mextco, Mo., Not. 20. Early yes terday morning- a horrible tragedy occurred near Wellsviile, a little vil lage eighteen mild east of this p'atee. Thomas Portertftieck, a Bohemian, presumably in a fit of insanity, killed his mother, a sister and a brother with an axe. Another sister escaped throug-h the window while he was slaying- his mother. After completing" the wholesale slaug-hter the maniac threw a lamp on the floor, lig-ated the spilled oil with a match and committed suicide. Sunday afternoon Portercheck was discovered acting strangely and gave indications that his mind was de-rang-eiL lie labored under the hal lucination that his neck was broken and insisted that a physician be sum moned. His relatives endeavored to convince him of his error and tried to get hi in to tro to bed. lie insisted on sittin.se up all night. Late Sunday nig-lit the family re tired, leaving- Thomas in a rocking chair. At 3 o'clock yesterday tnorn-ing- his sister Mary was awakened by an agonizing- scream from her mother. When she emerc-ed from her bed room she found her mother lying- on the floor, while Thomas was standing over her brandishing- an axe. The floor was covered with blood, and from an adjoining- room the otner brother, James, could be heard moaning- in the agony of death. The gdrl ran through the house, and finding all the doors locked, opened a win dow and jumped to the grcund. She remained at the window and as her brother Thomas made no attempt to follow her, she stood and watched him at his murderous work-. The maniac seized a can of coal oil and after pouring- it over the floor and furniture, set it on fire. He then drew a butcher knife across his throat and fell by the side of his mother. The poor girl attempt -d to extinguish the lames, but they spread so quickly that in less than ten minutes the house was a mass of fire. The screams of the gdrl awakened tiie neighbors and they rushed to the scene, but the flames had alraaly finished the work which the maniac had commenced. When the blazing timbers had cooled sufficiently to allow a search of the ruined home four bodies were found blackened and charred. They were those of Mrs. Portercheck. her youngest daughter, and her sons, James and Thomas. Investigation showed that the mother, daus?nter and son James, had ben horribly mutilated bv an axe. It is believed that Thomas bad first killed his brother, then h s sis ter and mother. It was probably hi3 intention to kill his sister Mary also. The mother h id been an invalid for twelve years, and had been confined to her bed dur.ng- that time.

Justice Brewer Says Sbawnees and Deist wares Have Kqaity nights. Washington. Nov.- 2a In the su- preme eourt to-day opinions were j handed down in several cases involving- rights of Indians. In two of these cases the ques tion had been raised whether the j Delaware and Shawnee Indians were j entitled to any part of the proceeds of lands owned by the Cherokees. j The decision in both cases was deliv ered by Justice ' Brewer and was to i the effect that the Shawnees and Deiawares having been absorbed by the Cherokee tribe, were entitled to equal benefits from such sales or from the proceeds of the othersimilar transactions of the Cherokees them selves. The money Bought by the Shaw nees and Deiawares is about 2,000, 003 which they claim is due by rea son of the sale of the Cherokee strip in the ownership of which they joint ly shared with tae Cherokee. SPOILED THE STATE'S CASE Mala vritnen Atalmt the Tennessee Lyncher Give the I'rosecation a llp. Memtcis, Tenn., Nov. 20. The prosecution of Ned Smith and W. S. R chardson, charged with the lynch in? of six negroes near Millington, Tenn., in this county, last August, re ceived a severe setback yesterday when Butch McCarver went on the stand and stated that he is an infidel, and was therefore incompetent, under the laws of Tennessee, to give testi mony before a jury in a capital one. Butch McCarver is the man on whom the state mostly relied for a convic tion, as he was invited, previous to the occurrence, to take a band in it. Immediately after McCarver's sen sational statement in the court he was arrested on a bench w :rraut, charged with perjury. It is also given outby Attorney General Patter son that he will immediately proceed ag-ainst A. J. McCarver, the sheril? of the county, and the father of Butch, to remove him from office.

Forsyth for San Francisco, to assume command of the department of the Pacific, was yesterday the occasion of a splendid military display at 1 ort Riley. The general was ecorted from his quar ters to the depot by four troops of the Seventh cavalry, where he was met by four troops of the Second, three light batteries of artillery, under command of Major Randolph. the hospital training school and the Seventh cavalry band. It was an imposing scene and the general h mself was visibly affected by the warmth of his reception and the sorrow and grief shown by all at his departure. As the general stepped to the rear of the depot and saluted the boys for the last time he was greeted by a storm of applause. WIPED ul s i XtSTENCE The Western I entr Association Com to Vieces. Chicago, Nov. 20. The Western Passenger association, as it has exist ed up to the present time, was prac tically wiped out of existence yester day when the Rock Island, Alton and the Missouri Pacific gave notice of Withdrawl from the association. The passenger association has for seme time been in a very bad way and there has been much dissatisfaction on the part of the members with the agreement under which they were he d tog-ether. The collapse has been looked for as likely to come at almost any time, and the present difficulty will without doubt result in the re organization of the associat on on new lines and with some, of the features which have proved objec tionable eliminated.

HORSEFLESH FOR FOOD. The Taste For It Spreading: la Enrope. Sentiment and Science Agjainst It. Hippophagy, or, to epenk less euphemis tically, the habit of eating horseflesh, H spreading in Europe. While savage man Is known to have sated his ravenous hun ger on horseflesh or any other variety cl ilet-h he could find, tho modern origin ot this peculiar taste dates from the siege of Paris during the Franco-Prussian war, when the populace were compelled from dire necessity to sacrifice this noble quad ruped to sustain life. Many acquired a tatte for the meat, and the demand fot it did not cease with the capitulation ot the city. It was to be seen on sale at many o the butchers' stalls and ha8 been ever feincs a staple article of diet for thousands of the poor of the French capitul. For horse flesh is much cheaper than beef. Beef in Paris Is worth 20 cents a pound, vhile horseflesh can be had for 8 cents a pound, which affords a reason why the barbrou custom should take euch a firm hold upon these people when once neoosnity gave il root. Once planted In Paris, the practlcs spread to other continental cities, especial ly to Berlin, where horseflesh is now con sumed in considerable quantities by the poorer classes, and tho medical authorities! and humanitarians are raising their voices against what they justly consider a bar barous and dangerous custom. The medical men warn the eaters ot horseflesh that the hort-o Is peculiarly lia ble to the disease known as trichinosis, also found in hogs, and while cooking generally destroys the germs of this dis ease it cannot always bo depended upol to do so.
