THE BIG FIGHT. The situati i in Iprl fighlting circles has ecomne acute. lihoe eminent slug gers, l.anky hli,b litziimmons and Robert Jeflrics, are relortel cacth to be in "fine fettle" in San Francisco, and the world is holding its breath for tilhe impact. Colonel Jeffries has the bulk of the money comitig his way, the hdds being rather heavy on his side. It must nIot lie inferred for a moment that the able, painstaking and far reaching Mr. litzsinnioins, late of Aus tralia, has not got his friends by the thousands, who are quite willing to accept the odds that are offered. Such is their Confidence that they nmay be willing as the mnoienllCtous eenllt draws near, to take evein loiney. It is just possible that Mr. Jeffries' friends are a lit over-confident. The stories that Mr. Fitzsitmmins has lost much of his great hattery power should not he accepted on their face. Persons who have had the pleasure and the honor of seeing Fitz in action of late are profuse in their praise and admniration of his marvelous speed and force. Slhe interest in thie coming contest is great. Already it extends from the Sand Lots to Oyster Bay and is widening out rapidly. There will lie a hot time inl San Francisco and throughout the length and breadth of the land Friday night. Watch for the flash of the ltter Mountain's stagic lantern inll Graniite street on that great occasion. t)ur lime light will carry on its shining wings the latest news bulle tins and pictures illhtstrating the glorious atffair. If you cannot be in 'Frisco, Granite street will be the next best vantage grounld. LONDON'S WRETCHED FIRE DE PARTMENT. The london fire department continues to be a disgrace to that world metropolis. The burniing to death of sevenl young girls in a recent fire because the ladders would not reach to the fourth-story windows of a sluatty building has once more directed the attention of the whole world to the pitiful inefficiency of the department and its management under tile direction of Captain Wells. "Mighty Shaw," who was satirized mildly in one of the Gilbert operas, appreciated tile weakness of the 'department when he was at the head of it, and during his visit to American cities did not hesitate to admiit the superiority of the departments of some of our second class cities. The alacrity with which the fire iboys of Butte get out to a fire and the intelligence with which they handle the conflagration after they get there would be a surprise to the sluggish department of I nidon. The nearest London comes to having modern appliances for the rescue of tictims fromt burning buildings is a photograph of some of the 65-foot ladders of tile New York department, of which Chief Wells has a poor opinion because they are "Yankee inventions." Yankee inventions and something of Yankee skill andul daring are things which the London department stand much in need of. Chief Wells referred in his testimony to the IIoboken steamship fire and tried to ridi cule the New York fire department be cause it did not, as he averred, in its annual report, include the list of the dead in that great catastrophe. That was dis tinctly a foreign fire, as much so as if it had occurred on the waterfront of Bremen or Ilamburg. It broke out on a pier of the North German Lloyd Steamship com pany, the result of gross carelessness on the part of the foreign steamship com pany. The big steamers of the German line, although equipped with fire-fighting apparatus, were helpless in the fire. All the fire-fighting and life saving was done by the tugs in New York harbor and the New York fire boats. The tugs particu larly did heroic work and saved many lives on the big Kaiser Wilhelm der (;io.-.,', the fine.,t steamlship in the line. 'rfhe XNiw York tutgs probably handled that fire better aIil, saved more lives and prop. city than ltih floating department of Lon don wouldI have dohne in a similar confla gratio, inl thie l'''halr.s.

The way Western cities grow is well illustrated in the case of St. Paul. IIn 1847 that cotllnltniity hal a ipopulationl of 5o. Two years later it had iilcreased this itnumber to 4O1. At thie close of the civil war it had I,3.2l,. According to the new city directory just issued the iipopulation of the city is 219,87C1. St. Paul is not the oily WeVcstern city that has grown with the same rapidity. lThere is, of course, no city ill the list thait shows aniy such ill crease ill tpopulation. \William I. Merriam, director of the cellsus, estimates thatthe population of the United State's in itio, when the next census is takeni, will be too, ooo,o0o. utside of the contribution to to the census from our new possessions the bulk of this will come from the \'est. At the piresent rate of increase it will not Ihe long until the \Vcst will be the big eld of tlhe counltry in populatiotn, as it is now is ill area. tA it to Sherif C'udlnte: The place to look for Mr. Tracy will be, at the ringside ill San Fratncisco, Friday night. That is the Mecca towards which all tihe chillren of lmern with sporting blood inl their veins and time on their haunds are now bending their eager footsteps. And that Mr. Tracy has sportillg blood in his veinls and tiime on his hands has beent abundantly verified. It is possible that Mr. Tracy will chal lenge the winner. It must be painfully evident to him that Ihe is getting out of the focus of the public eye. Profanity. [Exchange.] "Who is that scientific gent in room 15?" asked tile scrub-lady.

Letters From the People on Topics of General Interest. On the Vagrancy Larw. To the Editor of the Inter Mountain: One of your correspondents recently took exception to a certain vagrancy case which came up in one of the city courts, alleging that either the law or the interpretation of it by the court was unjust. It Is not my purpose to defend the court, or justice of the peace courts in general, because my experience is that they are usually wrong upon questions of law and extremely careless as to questions of fact, but your correspondent is certainly wrong in at tacking the vagrancy law. The Montana code says that "cvery per son without visitble means of living, who has the physical ability to work, and who does not seek employment" is a vagrant. Some judges of the inferior courts, all constables and some others read the part of the law quoted and at once come to the conclusion that only persons out of employment and at the same time out Of money are vagrants, but in this, as in nearly everything else, except the cus totnary rates for silence, they are mlis taken. Another section in the same chapter pro sides that "every idle or dissolute person; every person who roams about from place to place without any lawful busincss, and every lewd an.d dissolute person" is also a vagrant. It may le news to some of the officers of' this countitry, but the truth is that a ithan possessed of a million dollars and kielilng a negro valet can he legally con victed of vagrancy if he is a "lewd and dissolute pierson," and if the ollicials could spare the tuse of their hands froni their uisiual Cup-sh:lel 1.osition in the rear long inoughto o tulr a ft, leaves ill the code, they could :easily lini I out that this is true, St.cn though they might have to spell out th big words.

SOME LITERARY FARMERS. Comment on Booth Tarkington's Recent Remarks About Society. [tlarper's Weekly.] Mr. Tarkington needn't rail at society, not even at New York society. It isn't so had. New York is apt to be a tiring town to a visitor, and a popular author from Indiania may find its whirl distracting, but it is easier to a resident, and a good many people find it not incompatible with peace and a life sufficiently tranquil to be favor able to industry. People who live by the activity of their wits like a change from time to time. Whether they live in town or in the country, there comes upon them periodically the craving to go elsewhere, and breathe a different air, and see other sights, and talk to a new lot of people. To raise an annual crop of marketable litera ture on a farm is possible, but it is not so simple as raising beets. The literary farm requires frequent fertilizers, usually of an expensive sort-not guano, nor phosphates, but ideas and inspirations whic, the farmer must either arrange to have brought to him, or must go after and fetci home. But for all that Mr. Tarkington is prob ably on the right track in providing him self with a country home, and has plenty of precedents for his encouragement. Mr. Kipling, while lie dwelt with us, had a farm ini Vermont; Mr. Winston Churchill is a rural resident of that same state; the late Mr. Stockton always had a farm some where; Mark Twain bought one the other dlay on the Hudson river; and as for the galaxy of Indiana writers, among whom Mr. Tarkington shines, no doubt they all have farms, and raise apples, peonies, and hens, and have hollyhocks in their gardens. Enviable men I Fat be their pigs and their royalties, and blissful their contentment I Laws.
