Ilourquin in a speech in which he dcamlankd to know if the central com mittee had not passed upon the contest and settled it as directed and empowered to do, and which the call said it would do. "I will ask, Mr. Chairman, if the central committee has not passed on that matter," Mr. Ilourquin said. Mr. Oliver, toe chairman of the central committee pro tem, replied that the central committee decided at its meeting this morning to refer the committee to the con vention, and said that both lists of dele gates would he put in the nands of the credentials committee of the convention when it should he appointed. In answer to that Mr. HIourquin said: "It seems that the committee did not do ts duty in that matter, then, and that the delegates will he selected as suggested, but lefore that is done I will say that the republican party has always stood for the full and free representation of all toe people, and I now offer as an amendment to the motion that the seven uncontested delegations he allowed to select their own representatives as the credenttial commit tee." Mr. (;allagher opposed the amendment in another talk, and other delegates ex pressed themselves for and against it. The amendment was put to a vote and was Inst. Then Mr. t(almtaher's motion that the chair appoint the committee was votedl'upon and carried. At this point A. F. Bray precipitated another warm dliscussion by moving that a conference collmittee of five ie ap pointetd by the chair to confer with a similar committee from the citizens' party. lie Ibrought out a very vigorous opposition on the part of )ohl, II. Kirk and Attorney Hourquin. In making his motion he said: "All the usual propositions seem to have been made, Mr. Chairman, and 4 now wish to smake one which is unusual, but which I think will be beneficial to the republican party and our fair city. Republicanism is a grand institution, and now, gentle men, there is an era in our aety which de. mands a good and substantial government. There are times when it is necessary for the man to rise above the politician. This is such a time. Therefore I make a mo tion that the chairman appoint a confer ence committee of five delegates to con fir with a conference committee from the citizens' party." The motion was seconded, and then Mlr. Kirk took the floor, and at his ap pelarance the convention brrlle into thun lderinKg applause, which was nothing less than an ovation. Mr. Kirk said that in hisu lopinion no suchlcommtnittee should lie a tpint.td until the temporary organiza Itn ~i the convention h;tad I.eni etfected at least. and that he thouglit it unneces ,.,ry to make much of a talk against Mr. Itray's proposal.

Many are inclined to the belief that the Philadelphitan is blItting. However that may ie, if he does smeet himt he has only ione giold chance to win, and that is to catch the wily C('orniahn:m at a weight which has compelled him to sacrifice vi tality, strength and recuperative power. If the information wired front Pittsburg that the weight is to be 158 pounds, weigh in a half hour before the contest, is correct, the local middleweight has a good chance. Providing, of course, he and his advisers are clever enlough to see that the contest legins 3o minutes after the imen weigh in. This itay seem a very trivial point, but its neglect won the lightweight championship for Jack McAuliffe once, and lost it for Austin t;~bbons.

He was but .5 years of age and plossescd of imuch of the recuperative power of youth, so it was decided by those who were on 'the insilc' to have the men weigh inl at the appointed time, and, inas much as the articles of agreement did not specify any iparticular time the tmen were to be in the ring, the McAulifTe crowd wouldl ,p:atl for i time.'

Some changes were made in the Fifth war! fromn the ticket nominated at the caucuses, in making up a new ticket, which *as elected. In the Eighth ward a new ticket was substituted for the caucus ticket, and it was elected without a struggle, although there was opposition in that ward. The regular ticket polled t48 votes against 27a by the opposition. The only contest arose in the Third ward. The opposition delegates died their contest with the central committee this morning at the. meeting of the latter at Judge McClernan's court. The committee met at 9 o'clock to p-as on contests and receive reports. Jacob Oliver, vice chairman and chairman pro tem., presided at the meeting, which was attended by members of the committee. The meeting was brief, and nothing was done beyond receiving the list of contest ing delegates and passing a motion to carry them up to the credentials commit tee at the convention. The committee then adjourned sine die. There was no discussion of the merits of the contest at the committee meeting, it being decided to allow the convention to pass on the contest. The delegates elected at the primaries last evening and their alternates were as follows : First Ward: Delegates: Thomas Dris coil, Jacob Oliver, Richard J.

All the while the Brooklyn boxer was gaining strength by being fed with food which almost digested in the mouth, and the result of the conteat is now a matter of history. When McAulifTe had all the best of the bout it was stopped by the police, and the referee gave the decision to the champion in the sixth round. "The foregoing incident is merely cited to show O'Brien how careful he must be in having the details of the match with Fitasimmnons looked after, as a half hour or less between the weighing-in time and the time of actual contest may mean vic tory or defeat. And if both principals are sincere, and if the match is arranged to prove which is the better of the two men, the local boxer should see that his rights and privileges are faithfully guarded. One of Two Things to Do. "Fitasimmons must do either one of two things. Either he must fight at Fort Erie or waive the $g,ooo side wager. The fool ishness of making such a play is so appar ent that it is scarcely worthy of consider ation. There is an unwritten law in Cali forlda against side wagers, as it is just the one step across the line between box ing contests and prizefighters. Men can box for a purse, so much per cent to the winner and loser, trot when it comes to making a side wager it has all the semb lance of a prizefight, and in the O'Brien Fitzsismnmons case, like others, the law is sure to step in and preveint the bout. That no club has coMee forward and even sug gested a purse is proof positive that the San Francisco promoters do not propose to tamper with the law, which, at the pres ent time, is most generous to those who faithfully live up to its requirements."

HOW HE BECAME A DETECTIVE [Philadelphia Ledger.] "How did I become a detective ?" echoed a central oflice man whose name is pain fully familiar to all the big criminals in the country. "Perhaps you think it was from reading ()ld Sleuth stories when I was young. But it wasn't. ITo tell the truth, I don't think the man ever lived who had his future pointed out to him so plainly as I had. "I was a country boy, and when I was about t6 years old my. father one day sent me to a small city near where we lived to make some purchases for him. It was the first time he had ever placed such confi dence in me, and I was even prouder titan I had been on that memorable day when I was put into long trousers. The ride in the railway train was a revelation to me, and I must have acted very green, for I fell a victim to the first sharper that set eyes on me. As I was getting out of the car a rough-looking young fellow jostled me. I was very innocent, and thought no more about it until I was entering a street cur, when I felt for my money and found that it was gone. "Talk about a fellow's heart sinking in his toots l That was no name for it. Be sides the thought of being in a strange city without a cent. I felt that my father would lose all confidence in me, and it seemted that my whole futqre had been taLen away front me in a moment. "Those were the days when everybody carried a purse, and my money had been In one of a most peculiar shape belong. It,- to my grandfather. While I was thinking how I could have lost it, I sud delt; remembered the tellow who had jostled me. I had read that this was a favorite trick of pickpockets, and I con cluded that he was the man who had robbeld me. I had no very distinct im prre.ion of how he looked, but I recol letted that he had a heavy and very scrag gy ;rowth of beard on his face. ".s I walked up the street almost heart broken I noticed a barber's shop. Sud den.ly a thought struck me, and I entered. The first person I saw was the fellow who ht. jostled me in the car. I ,at down and hel a paper in fronlt of me so that the mnl;t in the chair could not see my face refc'ted in the mirror. "'While I was morally sure he had robbed men I was scared at the thought of accusing him. A cold perspiration broke out all over me, and I was on the point of running away when the barber turned to ward me and said: 'Next ' In the midst of my anxiety I saw the fellow put his hand into his pocket and draw out my purse. I scoldi have sworn to it among a thousand, 'anl in an instant I had him by the collar. "'You're not as green as you look,' he sail twisting his head around. 'Say, if you let mne go and pay for the shave, you can hav' your pocketbook.' 'As that seemed the easiest way out of the dilficulty, I let him go. When I re turnedI home and related my experience in the city father slapped me on the back and sail : 'My boy, you're a horn detective l' 'So a detective I became." WITCHCRAFT OF TODAY. Manxland the Most Superstitious Plaoe in British Kingdom. [London Mail.] The account published yesterday of the "bewitched" man at Bottisham, near Cam bridge, is the second case of the kind brought to light within the past few days. 'Belief in witchcraft is today more preva lent in the rural districts of Great Britain than town dwellers edspect. Not long ago two young farmers living in Cornwall were clhargetd with threatening to murder an ell.erly neighbor, whom they accused of havintg "ill-wished" their horses so that ATTEND MAYER'S Auction AND Fire Sale Sale 2 to 6 P. M. they refused to pull their loads and started kicking. One of the defendants swore that the old lady had cast an evil spell over the animals. At a recent murder trial in a remote part of Invernesshire the constable who discovered the body of the victim, a Mr. Rose, could not produce the boots because he had buried them on the seashore in the hope that such action would "lay the ghost" of the deceased. Some little time ago the churchgoers of a Highland village collectively expressed indignation at certain theological views expounded by their minister. Within a few days the unhappy clergyman began to mastfeat symptoms of some wasting disease. His anxious friends attributed the malady to a stream that passed his house having been bewitched by his oppo nents. With solemn rite and incantation the stream was cleansed of its evil spirits, but the record fails to state whether the patient's health improved in consequence. Suffolk, Shropshire, Yorkshire, Devon shire and Cornwall appear to be the most superstitious counties in England. In Suf folk, for instance, the peasants to this day nail horseshoes to the beams of their houses if they suspect the presence of "the evil one." In Shropshire and Yorkshire one commonly hears of giants having been seen. The people of County Leitrim, Ire land, have a strong prejudice against c.t ing hares, lest they should be transformed into witches-the latter, according to local belief, having a habit or adopting that guise. The Leitrim dairymaids tie a rope with nine knots aroun-, their churns to prevent evil spirits stealing the butter from the milk. At Coychurch, in Glamorgan, there is a well to which sufferers repair. They dip into the water pieces of rag and touch the affected parts with them, afterward hang ing the rags on an adjacent tree. As many as 3oo of these shreds have been seen depending from the branches. The Isle of Man, however, is the most superstitious spot in the British isles. Witchcraft is-or was quite recently openly practiced in certain districts away fromn the towns. 1 he daughter of a once famous "charmer' on the southern side of the island appears to have inherited her father's power of persuasion, for the fish ermen from all parts flock to her for luck. Manxland, even in too3 has a remarkable population of fairies and giants, mermen and brownies, kelpies and water bulls. REGISTER TODAY. 8tratton Will Case. av ASSOCIATED Pars.
