ON SEPTEMBER 1OTH, 1738,
Dr. Thomas Sheridan, grand.
father of the great Brindsley
Sheridan, died in England.
He was slovenly, indigent,
improvident and a fiddler. He
might have been a bishop if he
hadn't preached a sermon on
the anniversary of the King's
birth, from the text, "Sufficient
to the day is the evil thereof."
Like his grandson, he was a
great wit.

LONDOx, Sept, 9.--Oeial reports show
that oholera is absolutely stamped out of
the United Kingdom. The looal govern
ment board of ooofficers, authorities at the
chief ports and great populous aentere,
concur in the statement that there is no
case of real eholera, and that bat only a
few cholerine eoase have oouarred. The
Lancet admits, however, that defensive
measures are somewhat defective. 'Innoeu
lation aqainst cholera is belag practiced at
the hospitals upon voluntary patients. It
is reported as effective, involving only
slight feverish symptoms. After undergo
ing the protective process for a few days,
perfect immunity from the disease is at
tained. John C. New, American consul
general here, told a representative of the
Associated press that there is reason to sup
pose the steamship companies are trying to
evade regulations laid down in President
Harrison's circular. He had consular re
ports of each vessel sailing, and found the
cessation of steerage traffio general.
Among the first fruits of Chief Secretary
Morley's presence in Ireland is the release
of the men who had been imprisoned for
contempt of court by defying the decision
of the judge on the question of eviction.
Morley has gone the whole length the law
allows him in releasing prisoners. Asked
if he would refuse to aid the police in ef
feoting evictions in Ireland, Morley said he
had been warned that he is bound by the
law to assent to officers assisting the sheriff
in oarrying out evictions. If he refused to
give such assent then the Irish unionists
would indict him for breach of law.
The convention of the trades congress,
now in session at Glasgow. Is the biggest
meeting of that body ever held. There are
in attendance 495 delegates, representing
1,219,984 members. The convention is at
tracting little interest, and much of the
proceedings verge on farcical
The failure of the House and Land In
vestment trust, limited, announced to-day,
is part of a series of gigantio bank and
building society suspensions now involving
liabilities approximating £6,000,000. The
first failure announced in this series was
that of the London and General bank,
limited; the next the Liberator Permanent
Building and Investment society, and now
comes this. The nominal capital of each
of these concerns does not represent any
thing approaching liabilities. The liabili
ties of the London and General ;bank are
roughly estimated at £1,000,000. The Lib
erator society at £2,500,000, and the House
and Land trust at £2,000,000. Another
great building and bank society is involved
in serious financial difficulties, but its sus
pension has not yet been announced. The
collapse of this concern will shake the
whole building society system in Great
Britain.
A run occurred to-day on the oldest and
most prominent banks in London as
sociated with the workmen's building
funds. Although these suspensions must
affect the general financial position, it is a
singular fact that the crisis oauses no panic
or scare. The limited building bank in
vestors are all small capitalists, whose life
savings are swept away or imperilled by
the failure of the concerns. The losses
which led to the suspensions are chiefly
traceable to injudicious speculations *and
land blocks. So far no suspicion of mal
versation is attached to the directors of
any of the ruined companies, although the
shareholders charge them with concealing
the true position of the institutions. Al
though France in the meantime is unaf
feoted, the widespread ruin brought on
small investors by the disasters must soon
cause a strain upon the big banks.
Gen. Anderson, of Cincinnati, Ohio, is
lying critically ill at Lucerne.
Dr. Pierson, of Philadelphia, has finally

No Hope for Silver.
LONDON, Sept. 9.-The Associated press is
authorized to state that both Gladstone
and Harcourt, his chancellor of the ex
chequer, are averse to the international
monetary conference discussing anything
effecting the currenoy of the British em
pire. Gladstone thinks it anything is done
to relieve the strain of the monetary sys
tem of India, it ought to be effected with
out agreement or conference with the
United States authorities. Gladstone and
Harcourt both think the conference all lead
to nothing. It has been learned that Glad
stone has privately expressed the opinion
that Goechen has gone too far in treating
with Secretary Foster, and finally the ofil
oials have asked why the Washington gov
ernment did not forward fresh papers on
the subject. In reference to the suspension
of silver coinage in India, it is learned that
the pressure of the Indian government in
favor of suspension is so urgent that a
special cabinet meeting will shortly be
convened to decide the question, which is
considered much more critical and impor
tant than the monetary conference.

GeNoa, Sept. 9.-King Humbert and
Queen Mlraherita visited the Columbus

IAN FRANCISCO OPINION;
The MIll St111 the Sole Tople of DlUatsfee
at Jim's Home.
SAN Pagaoisco, Sept. 9.-The Corbett
Sullivan fight is still the only topic die
eassed, and it seems bard for Ban Frausisoo
to beliave the great Sullivan is beaten by a
hoes prodaetlon. The celebratieo over
Jam's splepdld performance kept up bohere
all last night. "I am not altogether ear
prised at the result of the fight," said Ii B.
Fulds, exspresident of the California club,
"but I am conIlderably snrprised that he
should have rushed the big fellow and won.
I had an idea that if Corbett got to elose
quarters he would soon go out on aesonut
of the severity of Sslllvan'e blows."
William Orer'Harrison, president of the
Olympic club, said: "Irrespective of my
personal regard for Jim Corbett or for any
inanisal profit accruing from hie victory
over John L. Sullivan, I am satfisefd with
the resals for it is an endorsement of the
complete system of physical culture of the
Olympic club. It is also a magnificent on
dorsement of Prof. Walter Watson's method
of boxing, which calls for counters instead
of warding of blows. It has been my"ez
perience in life that everything else being
equal, gentlemen and reputable men will
always come out victors. Corbett has got
great moral courage and grit and he is
bright and clever. I believe he will make
good use of his success, and although he
may figh Jackson again he will have noth
ing to do with the others who may olamor
around him. I fancy he will follow the
advise gives him some time ago, and in a
year or two go into some business, some
thing in the line of sporting."
The Corbett family, of course, are very
jubilant over the result. One instance of
how careful the family were not to worry
him occurred early in the week. Jim's
mother broke her arm. In themidst of her
pain, however, she thought of her son and
pledged every one to seoreey in the matter.
Not a soul outside of the family was al
lowed to know anything. She was afraid
the news might reach Jim and worry him.
Harry Corbett estimates his winnings on
the three fights at about $12,000, most of
which was won on Jim upon tips which he
sent. Corbett also won considerable
money.
Porter Ashe is a heavy winner on Corbett.
He is supposed to be the only man in the
city who knew Corbett's exact weight in the
fight with Jackson, and last night Corbett
kept him advised right along. Ashe's win
ning. will amount to about $5,000.
KIIrala HR a Fellow Feeling.
BARLTIMron Sept. 9.-"I was surprised."
said Jake Kilrain. when asked what he
thought of the fight this morning. "So
sure was I that the big fellow would win
that I placed $200 up on him. Sullivan
did wrong to light Corbett. When we
fought two years ago in New Orleans Sulli
van knew then that, although he remained
champion, he had suffiolent reason for re
tiring on his laurels. I'm not only sur
prised at the result, but I'm grieved as
well. Sullivan is much older than Corbett,
and after the numerous fights he had I
would prefer to see him wear the cham
pionship belt. Corbett is young, and a
battle lost would count but little. As
things now stand, it would be hard for Sul
livan to secure backers if he again chal
lenged Corbett. A fight between the cham
pion and Peter Jackson would now be of
exceptional interest."
When asked what his pugilistic inten
tions were, Jake answered that he had a
good business and did not desire to nsari
flee it by engaging in any kind of pugilise
tic en counters.
"Poor John."
NEW YORK, Sept. 9.-"Poor John" is the
most frequent expression of regard for the
champion. While he made many enemies
by overbearing acts when in his cups, still
Sullivan was looked upon as the one man to
protect the pugilistic championship of the
world and keep it on our side of the water.
Doubts were freely expressed as toCorbett's
ability to retain the honors as long as the
man just defeated. Said an old sport, and
he voices the majority of opinion: "Well,
so it's Corbett? He's a good man, but
there never was but one Sullivan, and
never will be; poor John."
Corbett on the Wing.
BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Sept. 9.-The special
train conveying Champion Corbett and
party left New Orleans at four o'clock this
morning for this city where Corbett was
given a reception this evening. At Mobile
an Immense throng gathered and shouted
until the new champion was obliged to
dress and show himself at the door. He
was cheered to the echo.
Wants a Go at Dixon.
NEW ORLEANS, Sept. 9.-Jimmy Carroll
to-day posted $1,000 forfeit on behalf of
Johnnie Griffin for a match with George
Dixon. a bet of $10,000 and the largest
purse offered, under the same conditions
that goverened the Dixon-Skelly contest.
THE GREAT NORTHERN.
Though Not Out of the Assoolation, It Is
Making Trouble.
CHIoAGO, Sept. 9.-Although the Great
Northern is not yet out of the transcon
tinental association, it is beginning to make
trouble, having announced a cut of 123.
cents a hundred on canned goods, borax,
wine and beans, San Francisco to the At
lantic seaboard, in direct violation of the
agreement. It is probable the line will be
compelled to cancel the out rate at present,
but this will not prevent depredations in
other directions, as it is generally believed
Hill has adopted a free lance policy. In
the meantime the Canadian Pacific has
made a sweeping reduction in freight rates,
Boston and New York to St. Paul, which
will have the effect of lowering far western
rates. The matter is being investigated. A
I assenger war in transcontinental territory
is imminent as a result of the failure of
interested roads to adjust differences. The
Atchison people are said to be considering
the advisability of putting into effect at
once a second-class rate of $14.70. Missouri
river points to Clifornia oints.
Will be Burrned To-day.
AMaeSnURY, Mass.. Sept. 9.-Arrangements
for the funeral of John G. Whittier are
completed. The body will lie in state from
12 till two to-morrow, and after the Quaker
service the interment will take place In the
cemetery where is located the Whittier lot.
All places of business will be closed from
two to four to-morrow. Many buildings
are already draped in mourning, and flags
everywhere in town are at half meat.
Whittier's will contains a number of be
quests to charitable Institutions, as well as
to relatives and friends. He requested
that the funeral be conducted "in the plain
and quiet way of the Society of Friends."
He leaves his manuscripts, letters and pa.
pers to Stamuel T. Plckard, of Portland.
Me. It is expected that Pickard will super
intend his biography.

ties to put up letter boxes on the request of
citisenl for the collection and delivery of

M., PARROIT PLUCKED.
Philipsburg's New Pitoher Lost His
Cunning in the Fatal
Eleventh Inning.
Helena Tightene Her Grip on the
Pennant of the Montana
League.
Flne Game at the Park Yesterday and An
other One To-Day-Butte Oomes to
Life Agaain,
As the season draws to a close interest In
the ontoome of the struggle for the bas:
ball pennant is growing all over the state.
All of the clubs have been greatly strength
seen within the last few week and the
teams dre now evenly matched. From thie
on the struggle will be furious.
1 Eleven innitags were required to decide
one of the finest ,ball games of the season
it the park yesterday. lint in that inning
the Helena men plucked all the feathers
out of Mr. Parrott, getting six of their
thirteen hits and piling up five runs, enough
to insure a victory. Philipaburg made foun
in the second, and two in the eighth. Hel
ena made four in the third, one in the sixth,
one in the seventh, and five in the eleventh.
Philipebnrg has mtine nice goose eggs in her
basket and Helena seven. From the way
Missoula jumped on the burgers the cranks
did not expect tmuch of a struggle, but
those in attendance yesterday were most
agreeably disappointed, and the contest
was prophet of fine sport to-day and Sun.
day. The visitors were very decidedly
strengthened by the addition of three nea
men from the northwest league. They are
Parrott, Raymond and Klopf, all strong
men. The latter had a big day's work,
putting out three men and assisting to dis
pose of eight others, with one error charged
to him. In the tenth he threw out the Hel
ena men in one, two, three order, all of the
chances being hard ones. Raymond put
ut five men, though he failed to handle
one hot grounder.
George swatted the sphere for four safe
hits out of six times at bat, getting among
them one double and one triple. He went
from first to third on a bunt by Haesamaer
by very clever base running. The work of
McGinnis in the box was very good. He
struck out eight men, gave two men bases
on balls, made one wild pitch, and held the
mountain sluggers down to eighthits. The
Helenase opened the game by laying their
heads on the block in a oroeession. In the
second Strathers got a hit, but that was all.
McGinnis opened the third by getting a life
on Raymond's error. Lohbeok pounded
one down to first and was out. Hernon got
a life on Kiopf's error, and Huston was
thrown out at first by Klopf, Two gone
mid one ran in. Hatfeld was sent to first
on four balls. Then George came to the
resoue with a long double, bringing in two
men and himself crossed the plate a mo
ment later on Hassemaer's single. That
made a stand-off for the four made in the
second by ýPhilipsbarg, and the cranks felt
better. Strathers elosed the tuning by a fly
to MoMillan. Six Helena men
faced the pitcher in the fourth
and fifth. Hernon opened the
latter by a hit, but was doubled up on Hat
field's grounder to short, after Haston had
died on a fly to Faller. George opened the
sixth with a hit and got to second on Has
samaer's out. From there he scored on
Smith's bad throw to catch him at third.
Hatfield went to first on an error by the
third baseman in the seventh, took second
on George's hit, stole third and came home
on a wild pitch. Helena batters walked
out in order, with one exception, in the
next three innings.
The eleventh opened with Crotty at the
bat. He made a tremendous drive along
the ground just inside the foul line, the
ball going past the left fielder. It was a
fine double. MeGinnis and Lobbeck fol
lowed with singles. The latter was foreed
oat at second on Heruon's grounder. Hus
ton made a double, Hatfield a single and
George a triple. Five men had come in.
George was caught at home in his endeavor
to lengthen his triple into a home run.
Haseamaer pounded one down to first and
closed the proceedings for the homers.
For the opposition MoMillan took first on
balls, went to second on Hatfield's error
and third on Klonf's out. But be never
came home. The second opened with Tully
at the bat for the visitors. He took first
on balls. Raymond was thrown out at
first by McGinnis. Then Parrot, Wiokizer,
MoMillan and Fuller rapped out singles,
four men scoring. For the next five in
nings they were disposed of in order, ex
cept Faller, who got a hit and was imme
diately caaght trying to steal second. Two
runs were acquired in the eighth, tieing the
seore. MoMallan flew out to Huston and
Faller got a life on the third baseman's
error, though he was immediately after
ward forced out at second. Two men out
and Klopf on second. Whiteley sent one
into the clouds over in right field, which
not lost in the san. "Pop" came to on
second and Klopf scored. A hit by Smith
brought Whiteleyv home and the book was
closed to the visitors. Three men faced
McGinnis in the ninth and the same num
ber in the tenth. The eleventh opened for
Philipaburg as the twenty-first opened for
BSullivan. and ended the same. Umpire
Marsh was again satisfactory.
The same clubs play this asfternoon. The
-ams will be a stra cie.

Eaton; treasurer, Harry Mulni=; auditor,
Harry Tarbell; attorney general, G. 8,

The silver plank adopted is as follows:
Iesolved. That every republican in Col

favor of the free and unlimited coinage of
silver. The republican party of Colorado
calls attention to the fact that its senators
and members of congrese at all times have
worked for and advocated free coinage.
We as free coinage republhoans believe we
can establish true republicanism much
sooner by keeping within the party than by
supporting any fiat money theorists who
are in favor of demonetizing bath gold and
silver.
Rlesolved, That the republican party of
Colorado believes the free coinage of silver
at the present ratio would be of great ben
efit to all of the producing classes of the
nation.
