J., March 28 Ex-President Cleveland d'-livcied the first of his two lectures on the "Venezuelan Bound ary Dispute" before the students and friends of Princeton university last night In Alexander hall. Prof. Woodrow Wil son introduced the speaker. As Mr. Cleveland arose to begin bis lecture he was greeted with three Ions, loud cheers from the student body. He was strongly applauded several times while delivering the lecture. Mr. Cleveland at the outset spoke of the vagueness on the subject of bound ary lines in the establishment both of the Venezuelan republic and of British Ouiana. Hi said that from the first there was evident reed of "extraneous assistance" In-fore bounds so loosely named could be "'exactly fixed." lie then referred to the initiation of the dispute in 1M1 between the Vene zuelan minister to Great Britain and Lord Aberdeen, chief secretary of state for foreien affairs. The making of the Sehomburgk survey and its bearing upon the dispute were ful'y explained. The lecturer, quoting constantly from documents, showed the repeated appeals of Venezuela to Gr--at liritain in favor of settling: the question by arbitration of the i hole subj-ct declaring that their constitution prevented them from mak ing grants of territories except by a pro cess tiie result of arbitration. Meantime Knplund constantly refused arbitration on the general subject, declaring that it feared the Venezuelan constitution would still be used as a pretext for dis obedience to an award. Great Britain also objected to the arbitration request ed by Venezuela, fearing that an award might be made in favor of the Vene eueian claim in which case "an import ant territory which has for a long period i:een inhabited and occupied by her majesty's subjects and treated as part of the colonj of a-lt!jh Guiana would be Beverefi from the noon's domains." On this Mr. Cleveland 'said: "KnirianJ alone had treated it as part of British Guiana; her immense power had enabled her to do this, and her own decrees seemed to promise greater ad vantages as against her weak adversary than arbitration could possibly assure. "The British government at one time offered a plan of arbitration which did not cover the entire disputed territory, but never consented to arbitration such as proposed by Venezuela and which would include the entire territory in dis pute." The lecture brought down with much etail the narrative to September, 1SD3. To Cure LaGrippe, Colds or Neuralgia Take Bromollne: It will cure a cold In one 3ay.

Looks as Young; as Ever and Is in Good Condition, MIGHT TIGHT AGAIN. Likes the Stage, However, and Will Stick to That. . Has Three Villains to Knock Down Erery Day, Cincinnati, March 23. Bob Fitzsimmons seems to take as kindly to the swige as he did to the prize Ting. Kit says he likes It better and that unless-something unforeseen happens he will never appear in the ring again. Fitx's retirement is Tiot caused by old age. As a matter of fact, he is younger looking than either Sharkey. Corbett or even Jeffries. He haa a bright eye. clear color and as much- elasticity and youthfulness as any lighter In the game today. As an actor Eob is not a. frost. Tie re ally surprises his audiences with his per-feetly-at-home manner on the stage. His handling of tiie villain comes right up to the expectations of the gallery gods, and his entire audience find! time to applaud iiim on numerous occasions. Kvervthinr is tdav for uz. He has very happy time of it behind the scenes with his ftdfe and family, and is as much interested in his lines as any actor could re expected to be. t 'I'm not considered a fighter any longer." said Fitz last night, he made a hurried change from a blacksmith's garb to a dress uit. "People now come to see me as an actor. I like this acting game. It just suits me. I know that some fighters do nt take kindly to lr, but that is because they do not know how to act. I think 1 do. and rnv Audiences share my opinion. 1 think I'm improving ngnt aionr. ami some oay x expect to rank with the best of 'em." . "ill you ever get back in the ring? "Well. I've announced my retirement, but I don't know. There is never any telling what the future has in store for a man. Of course, it Is better pay than this acting, but I like the stage. 1 might possibly get into a go again, but I have no plans tor that now. I'm paying strict attention to business, and, to be candid wun you, never expect to nave a light again. , 1 could do as well as ever at that. Mv last few tights should prove to the public that I'm not a has-been bv anv meana. But just at present the game seems to be aeaa, ana l would wjut until mere is something real doing before I would try to get pack into trie frame, even n A nau any intention of so doing. it seems to me that when two men are anxious to fight they can get together somewhere. .Look the way 1 have been chased around the country In my time. "Why. when I fought Malier there were Texas rangers on one side and Mexican soldiers on the other, and about as tough Kane- as you could find in a. year s travel behind Mailer anxious to get a poke at me." What about a. co between Corbett and Jeffries ?' "I don't think thev'll ever meet. Jeff knows that he would not stand a chance in a short limited round contest, and Cor- oelt Knows that he hasn t chance In a finish go with Jeffries. JrfoK at me: 1 rn alwavs in enod con dition. You see, I spar with Dunkhorst every day, and then 1 have three assist ant villains to knock down everv Ler- formance. besides throwing the main vil lain out of the window.

Chicago, March 2S. George Slier says In the Tribune: Benny Tanger, the "Tipton Slasher," and Johnnie Kichie have been matched to fight before -Paddy Carroll's club at Memphis on Apri 115. The boys will bat tle tor a percentage of the gross re ceipts, and have agreed to weigh in at 122 pounds at 3 o'clock in the afternoon. This will be Tanger's first tight in near ly four months, and therefore will be quite a novelty to him. He was match ed a short time ago to box Ule Olaon eix rounds at Minneapolis at 126 pounds, ring side, but Governor Van Sant put his foot down on the exhibition. Bennv was practically matched with Eddy Sprague of Streator to fight eight rounds before the Appleton Athletic club, but John Hertz, his manager, clinched the match with Kichie before definite ar rangements had been perfected with the Appleton club. This was hard luck for M. M. Moore, manager and matchmaker for the Appleton club, as he forwarded articles of agreement and the club's for feit last Saturday. Hertz .however, was not aware of this when he . signed for Yar.ger to fight Richie. He said last night he would open negotiations wih Mr. Moore to fight before his club, pro vided he would set the date or or bef jre April 23. Kichie is well known in local fight cir cles Hi9 last contest in Chicago was with Johnny Reagan at the C. A. A. It resulted in a draw. Last Tuesday night he met Young Mowatt. the fighting street car conductor, whom he defeaLtd in It rounds at Memphis. Richie is a scientific boxer, has had years of exper ience, and is a good ring general. Linger is fairly clever, a' good hitter. and game as a pebble, so the fight ought to be a good one.

FOR THE GRIP. You Have Heard of Many Remedies Did You Ever Try This One. .Everybody you meet on the streets nowadays either has just had the grip, is coming down with it or has a sure cure for it. The disease has been a puzzle to phy sicians ever since its appearance several years ago and It is as much of a puzzle today as it was then, it exhibits such a variety of symptoms in different in dividuals and leaves such disastrous re suits after apparent recovery, that as yet its prevention and cure has baffled medical science. However there is no doubt but that the grip is catarrhal in character and the leading symptoms in neariy every case is increased secretions in the head and throat, in fact the first indications of la grippe are those of a cold in the head which extends to the throat and lungs. Ir; Johnson Ames advises as the safest course to pursue on the first appearance of grip symptoms to keep to the house for a day or two and take Stuart's Ca tarrh Tablets every hour the flist day and every two hours the following day and states that this will break up the trouble before It becomes deep seated. These catarrh tablets are antiseptic and harmless and prevent fever and the further development of grip germs, and ward off the ever present danger of pneumonia. Dr. ierald Simpson says: "I have found Stuart's Catarrh Tablets a pleas art and thoroughly reliable remedy for the grip, especially with elderly people with whom this prevailing disease is al ways dangerous;the tablets can be found at any drug store and if used freely dur ing the first few days of tne attack will brvak it up. La grippe is a catarrhal affection, the germs are in the air and no one is proof against it, but the timely use of Stuart's Catarrh Tablets .will prevent any ser ious results. tiutiyoffS- When Prof. Munyon says hi Rbenmathmi Cure will cure rheumatism there iso'c any gucw work about it there isn't any false statement about it.

The Teacher Is an Athlete and Trained Boxer. Pupils Will Be Held in Check by Mr. Smith. Hutchinson, March 28. The school room provided by the board of educa tion to accommodate pupils having been expelled and those who have refused to attend school is now ready. Mr. Delbert Smith has been appointed as teacher of the room arid has before him an im portant work. Those who know Mr. Smith well say that the new room will have a most excellent teacher and the pupils will have before them a splendid example. The boys who do not appreciate the great benefit of securing an education and the boys who are too full of mis chief to admit of talcing advantage of other schools are here to be given a start in the right direction. It will be a room especially adapted to character moulding, and the task will be a diffi cult one. Mr. Smith in the first place is a- young man whom the strong unruly boy cannot help but admire. He is an accomplished athlete, a quality that boys good or bad are sure to admire. He is able to convince the boys that they need training, even if he has to put on boxing gloves with them to con duct the argument. Tne effect of the so-called truant room may already be seen in the Hutchinson schools. Boys who have been working for expulsion . that they might be free to go hunting and spend their time in having fun, have changed their tac tics. If they are expelled now, it only means a transfer to the truant room. These boys who go to the truant room, it ia understood, will have every oppor tunity to work back into the other schools on their deportment, but while they are there they will have the benefit of just as good schooling and will not lose the time, nor will they be getting into trouble by being idle. The move ment is simply an earnest effort on the part of the board to benefit the schools and the pupils, and if parents of the boys who may be sent to the specia room will understand the matter and will give their aid and support, the new room will wrork no end of good to the city schools and the boys of Hutchinson.
